@PressSec is sayin that @POTUS just putting $15/hr min wage in the relief bill is enough cuz it shows he supports #RaiseTheWage. Putting it in the Bill and FIGHTING for it are not the same. He can easily overrule the Parliamentarian. By not doing so heโ€™s giving up.

So let me get this straight: essential workers are essential enough to keeping the economy going through a deadly pandemic, but not essential enough to be paid a living wage?

Dear U.S. Senate:

If the minimum wage had grown at the rate of productivity since 1960, it would be $23 today.

But it's just $7.25. #RaiseTheWage

Best,

.@McDonalds pays us poverty wages and forces us to rely on public assistance like food stamps and Medicaid just to get by. McDonaldโ€™s low wages are subsidized by taxpayers. Itโ€™s time for McDonaldโ€™s to pay workers our fair share. #Fightfor15 #RaiseTheWage

It is the backwards prioritization of profit over people that has resulted in our horrendous racial and economic disparities. Pope Francis, argues that โ€œtrickle-downโ€ economics places a โ€œcrude and naive trust in those wielding economic power.โ€ #RaiseTheWage

People can't keep banging on about the importance of "essential workers" and then continue to pay them poverty wages. If the #minimumwage had risen concomitant with the cost of living, it would be at $12 now. But it is at $7.25. The federal poverty level. Pay women fair wages.

@BetsySweetME Exactly! Opposing #RaiseTheWage is inherently, fundamentally racist and misogynistic. Itโ€™s also anti-democratic because #FightFor15 is overwhelmingly popularโ€”even in red districts and states. Get it done @POTUS #Biden @VP @chuckschumer

@POTUS & @VP are using excuses about arcane rules in the Senate as an excuse to not raise wages for millions of Americans. #MinimumWage #FightFor15 #RaiseTheWage #WealthTax An unelected Parlimentarian's decision shouldn't block raising wages. #nomoreexcuses

#RaiseTheWage NOW! Stop the excuses!! If someone works 40 hours a week, they need to live out of poverty level!

Given the importance of the $15/hour wage (hardly generous, but half as unbearable as $7.25), every social, economic, and racial justice org should pause what they are doing for a moment and fight for this #RaiseTheWage #FightFor15

At a time when millions of workers are earning starvation wages, when the minimum wage has not been raised by Congress since 2007 and stands at a pathetic $7.25 an hour, it is time to raise the minimum wage to a living wage.

This week, as part of the reconciliation bill, I will be offering an amendment to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Federal Minimum Wage:
2009: $7.25
2020: $7.25

Wealth of the 400 Richest Americans:
2009: $1,270,000,000,000
2020: $3,200,000,000,000

If you're against raising the minimum wage, but you have no issue with this, I don't question your politics.

I question your morality.

I agree with Bernie, US taxpayers are sick of subsidizing some of the richest corporations in the world who choose to pay their employees next to nothing. #FightFor15
