Pelosi Expects $15 Minimum Wage Will Be Included in Pandemic Bill
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Democrats have a “very strong argument” for including a $15-per-hour minimum wage in President Biden’s $1.9 trillion pandemic response bill.
We all want to hear from the Senate parliamentarian as to what will happen with the minimum wage piece of the legislation. I don’t know what other considerations she has, but I feel that we have a very, very strong argument. And we have a very big need in our country. And it’s long overdue, and it will be phased in. And we would hope that it could be part of this reconciliation deal. The need is great, the opportunity is there and the precision of this legislation to directly address the needs of the American people, the lives of the American people and the livelihood.
