We’re not sure when or where this was taken — One Fair Wage, which describes its mission as trying to fix the restaurant industry’s broken two-tiered wage system, hasn’t tweeted in months — but it couldn’t have been too long ago if Rashida Tlaib is speaking as a member of Congress.
In this video, posted by America Rising, Tlaib says that a $15 minimum wage should have been the starting point, and what restaurant workers should be fighting for is $18 to $20 an hour.

She does say that eggs and milk are getting more expensive (wonder why?), so absolutely, raise the minimum wage and get rid of tipping altogether, considering its long racist history.
The current average salary in the US is $56,500/year.

Do I hear $25?

Do I hear $30?? Going once… going twice

Why not $50 minumum wage?
— BBWFan (@bbwfan12) July 22, 2019
Why not $75…….Now THAT'S a living wage.
— Chris (@chrismlatham) July 22, 2019

Why stop there? $1,000 minimum wage.

She should stop being so parsimonious and make it $1000 an hour.

How is someone supposed to support their family on a measly $20/hour? It should be $1,000/hour so we can all be rich!
— Scully 🇺🇸 (@dhighway61) July 22, 2019
Should be $1,000,000 per hour.

Instead of abolishing millionaires, why don’t we just make $1,000,000 minimum wage? Problem solved.

If $20 is the new minimum wage I’m quitting my job and working at McDs

If it's 20 @BernieSanders is going to have to cut even more hours.
— Guy Montag (@PugPenelope) July 22, 2019
Yeah, economic genius Bernie Sanders just cut his staff’s hours until it worked out to $15.
Didn't Bernie just teach us if you do that you just get your hours cut instead of getting a raise? Which is exactly what conservatives have been saying for… well… ever.

Too dumb to realize that when you force this, employers will simply cut the number of jobs overall to make up for it . Around and around we go . Logic is worth less than a short sided "woke" headline to these people

We’d missed this on her feed, but Tlaib (accompanied by a cameraman) worked for a whole hour waitressing, for which she still made around $87 an hour on the taxpayers’ dime.
