Bernie releases statement on $15/hr minimum wage being nixed from relief bill

Senator Bernie Sanders has released a statement on $15/hr minimum wage being nixed from the Coronavirus relief bill.

Per The Hill “the decision from the parliamentarian, Elizabeth MacDonough, is a significant blow to progressives, who viewed the plan to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour as one of their top priorities in the massive coronavirus relief plan.”

Sanders wrote “I strongly disagree with tonight’s decision by the Senate Parliamentarian. But the fight to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour continues.”
