    She had no reason to vote against it. Mark Kelly voted for it, minimum wage in Arizona is already $12, more people voted for minimum wage increase in Florida than for Trump or Biden.

    aren't some of them simply opposed to putting it in the covid bill vs being anti raise?

    But if it's not done through reconciliation it will never be done.

    At least they could've put in some effort to bullshyt about small businesses or something else. Because pretending that they'll get 10 Republicans to vote for it later is laughable.

    ehh, they weren't going to get the votes if it were in the covid bill either, thus leading to further delays. i think it can get done, and i don't think it should've been shoehorned into the covid bill either. more and more i'm thinking 15 won't happen, but i think they can get 10-12

    I’d be surprised if more than 1-2% of workers fell into that 7.25, 16k a year poverty bracket.

    iirc the average wage is already $10-11...


    Just push for UBI and stop half stepping :russell:

    Red States need to stop to relying on Federal aid and depressed wages. That's what this really boils down to but idk how that is going to be addressed.
