Working class? How is an employer supposed to pay for this price increase in minimum wage?
Check it out:
Democratic leaders in Congress and the White House upped their pressure on Republicans Wednesday to increase the minimum wage.
The push is part of a broader election-year campaign designed to highlight the stark differences between the parties when it comes to tackling income inequality and the wealth gap, both of which have grown significantly since the Great Recession.
Democrats are hoping their fight for a minimum-wage hike – alongside other policy priorities that include an extension of emergency jobless benefits and new funding for food stamps – will convince voters ahead of November’s mid-terms that they are the party of the working class.
