    Biden Signals Retreat From Nonsensical Minimum Wage Hike in COVID-19 Relief Bill

    It ought to be abandoned as an economically bad idea but http://Biden Signals Retreat From No...19 Relief Bill

    President Joe Biden is signaling that Democrats may have to punt on raising the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, at least for now.

    As part of a traditional Super Bowl Sunday sit-down with the network that hosts the big game, Biden told CBS' Norah O'Donnell that he doesn't expect a proposal to hike the minimum wage will be included in the final version of a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill currently being negotiated in Congress.

    "I don't think it's going to survive," Biden said, adding that it is unlikely to pass "because of the rules of the United States Senate."...

    OH NO. Now I can't make enough money to buy that new Ferrari I wanted so badly.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Did someone explain to this idiot that doing this Now would prevent small business from bringing back those jobs as we try to get over COVID Lockdowns?

    It is not a matter of left-right politics as one of simple logic. It was equally foolish for Obamacare to be dumped on a recovering economy, and thus helped prolong the Recession.

    But but but, you just don't care about sick people do you? You want to see poor people dead in the street.

    Fie for shame.
