In Hawaii and across the country, hard-working Americans with full-time minimum wage jobs and are struggling just to get by. The Federal minimum wage has stagnated over the last 10 years, as inflation has increased, cost of living has gone up, and top earners incomes have risen. I joined Senator Bernie Sanders and Democratic leaders from the House and Senate today as we introduced the Raise the Wage Act - legislation that would raise the Federal minimum wage to $15 by 2024, giving 41 million low-wage workers a raise. Join us in calling on Congress to stand up for working people and pass the #RaisetheWage Act! Join us in the #Fightfor15

    @angel_the_beast When Republicans completely took over Michigan a few years back, they cut the business tax by $2 billion and paid for it by raising taxes on LOW-INCOME workers by $2 billion. Scumbags.

    Tulsi, I hope you run for President in 2020 with either Bernie or Nina Turner on your ticket. However, I don't think taking 7 years to get min wage to 15 an hr for our working poor is fast enough. Typically our rent, utilities, gas, car and groceries will be so much higher that the increase wouldn't have much more value. Also, I feel that the min wage should be tied to inflation so that unscrupulous companies will think twice before raising prices every time the min wage goes up.

    They choose to work there, they should got educated, no socialism. Instead regulate fast food all the chemicals they put in food that causes sickness.

    The irony is that higher salaries are written off as a salary expense which helps the owner not pay taxes. Please let that sink in.

    @finestdrywall Socialism? What about corporations paying a decent wage is socialism?...don't you think people should get a living wage for the work they do? Otherwise, what's the point of working at all? When ppl don't make a living wage, YOU end up paying for them to be able to survive, in the form of food stamps, etc...meanwhile big corporations are making billions and laughing all the way to the bank. If you pay taxes, you're helping subsidize billionaire cheapskates.

    @finestdrywall Maybe some more jobs shouldn't require a dumb degree.

    Raise the wage, lose the job.

    Thank you all for introducing this legislation, Congresswoman Gabbard.

  • 46w ago musiclover3889 musiclover3889

    @offendingpatriot NO! I wouldn't even trust myself. Doctors and nurses DEFINITELY require degrees.

  • 46w ago musiclover3889 musiclover3889

    @offendingpatriot I understand now. I'm still learning.

    this is horrible

  • 37w ago tomtimcik tomtimcik

    You need to consider the libertarian philosophy. Do away with the minimum wage entirely, let the free market decide. A platform to raise the minimum wage will only crash and burn.

  • 37w ago tomtimcik tomtimcik

    @island_libertarian I like the way you think.

  • 32w ago martin.higueraaa martin.higueraaa

    @bdub_sti No, a living wage in exchange for fast food, clean restaurants, food, clean grocery stores, stocked grocery stores, etc... don't be so short sighted and close minded .

    Lazy, unmotivated, self entitled, greedy, selfish, self centered, narrow minded, complacent, near sighted,...

    I'm trying to think of more words to describe the idea that you should earn more even though you haven't earned it..?

    Socialism

  • 23w ago tomtimcik tomtimcik

    Congresswoman Gabbard, you dropped the ball big time on this one. You need to think like a libertarian, not a Bernie Sanders socialist.
