@EricG1247: The same people against raising the minimum wage probably would have been against abolishing slavery.

@PramilaJayapal: Once again: we don’t have a labor shortage, we have a living wage shortage.It’s time for EVERY worker in America to make a livable wage.

@scottsantens: “50% to 70% of the changes in the US wage structure since 1980 can be accounted for by relative wage declines among workers who specialize in routine tasks in industries hit by rapid automation.”It’s past time we implement UBI so automation uplifts all.

@RBReich: Serious question: If essential workers are essential to keeping the economy going, why is it not essential to pay them a living wage?

@RBReich: 67% of Americans support raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, but it can be filibustered by 41 Senate Republicans representing 21% of the country.It’s almost as if Dems should get rid of the filibuster.

@EricG1247: I wonder how many “essential” workers died from #COVID19 because they couldn’t work from home and made less than $15 an hr?They were called heros and now they aren’t even worth a living wage to those who make our laws, disgraceful.

@AllenLEllison: Florida’s Current Minimum Wage: $8.56 per hour. That’s $17,804 a year. Average family apartment is $1358. That’s $16296 a year. Once rent is paid, you have $1508 left to survive on. That’s why I support a wage subsidy or universal basic income. Millions need it to survive.

@OurRevolution: “Instead of listening to the uber-rich class ignorance of Dimon, Congress ought to be listening to actual workers. They would point out that there is no labor shortage – there’s a wage shortage.”
