“The current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is a starvation wage and must be raised. The minimum wage must become a living wage – which means raising it to $15 an hour over the next few years.” – Bernie Sanders
Liberals have an extremely bad habit of promoting oversimplified policy. For instance, many Liberals are pushing for a uniform minimum wage enforced by the Federal Government. They honestly believe that a person living in New York should earn the same as someone in Alaska or New Mexico. I mean, I guess a uniform minimum wage like that could work if they passed laws forcing the cost of living to be the same in each state. They could even pass a minimum wage law accounting for the different costs of living in each state. But here’s the problem: They aren’t going to do either. Instead, they’re going to screw over every state with a low cost of living by forcing a $15 an hour minimum wage on states that don’t even need it.
