Having solved all other problems, House and Senate Democrats can get back to the business of tanking the U.S. economy.
It’s nice that they want to stick to what they’re good at.
And that they don’t want to waste any time:
JUST IN: House and Senate Democrats introduce legislation to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $15 by 2025. pic.twitter.com/yW9hGZmmYK

Wow! $15! Congratulations, America. Poverty is solved!
But why should we have to wait til 2025?

2025 is a joke. Not good enough.
See told ya'll democrats & republicans are two sides of the same coin. We need new parties, not parties full of old rich/wealthy white people

Garbage, not good enough, not even close. Now, do it now. What happens in 2024 if there's a GOP controlled congress and president? This disappears.
Do it now. Right now.

And a $15 minimum wage? What’s that about?
This should say $25 but it looks like it says $15. Please delete the bill and tweet it again with the correct numbers https://t.co/2RxafsLzwU

It should be $25 *today.* https://t.co/o0FXNDa4EO

Why not set your sights higher still, Briahna?
Why not $50? $100/hr min wage would solve everyone's problems…no? And this is not a facetious question. Honestly…why not $100/hr? Seriously. #minimumwage #jlty https://t.co/VmWrIPHKL9 https://t.co/IdVrUdZPsh

Why not $250?

And even more for those unwilling to work!
The problem is that most small businesses won't be able to afford it unless they cut back staff.

1. This will kill small businesses. Most are struggling already.
2. Prices for every product will go up.
3. Salary employees won’t get raises. So the value of their jobs decreases.

This is all part of the central planning master plan to consolidate power:
-Shutter small biz
-Don't compensate them appropriately
-Raise the cost of doing business
-Pass the PRO Act
-Get everyone to be a big biz employee, a union member or on the government dole https://t.co/fyAQeWGxtE

Oh well. It’ll be worth it because everyone will be rich! Just you wait and see!
