“For decades the wages of everyday working Americans have stagnated [sic] While monopoly firms have consolidated industry after industry, generating record profits for CEOs and investment bankers, “Hawley said in a statement.
“Mega-corporations can afford to pay their workers $ 15 an hour and it’s been a long time since they have, but this shouldn’t come at the expense of small businesses who are already struggling to get it off.” “
Progressive Democrats pushing for a $ 15 minimum wage suffered a blow Thursday night when Senate MP Elizabeth MacDonough ruled that politics could not be included in the budget vote process.
Democrats were hoping to pass the wages under a $ 1.9 trillion COVID-19 aid package under the reconciliation process, which requires a simple majority in the Senate to pass.
Sanders railed the opinion, saying he would work on a change to taxing large, more profitable companies that pay less than $ 15 an hour.
“This change must be included in this draft reconciliation,” he said.
The details of the various plans do not match, especially items that would subsidize small business wages.
However, it is not the first time Hawley and Sanders have endorsed similar policy goals. Last year the two teamed up to increase COVID-19 stimulus payments from $ 600 to $ 2,000.
