Democrats Approve $15 Minimum Wage Despite Warnings

(AbsoluteNews.com) – In September 2020, reports revealed COVID-19 caused at least 100,000 businesses to permanently close. Five months later, it’s safe to say that number has increased, leaving more employees without jobs. As the economy struggles to come back to life, Democrats seem intent on destroying it further.

In the early morning hours of February 10, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) gleefully announced the Education and Labor Committee had officially voted to include a $15 federal minimum wage in the coronavirus relief package.

The leftist lawmakers approved the proposal even though the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has said it will kill 1.4 million jobs. Putting that many more people out of work when the country is desperately trying to recover from the first pandemic in a century is unfathomable. The American people deserve better than what the Democratically-led Congress is giving them. This is not the time to shove radical policies through Congress that will destroy mainstream America.
