Guys, big new from the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan: Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is working to increase the minimum wage and her bipartisan co-conspirator is Willard! Who knew?
Anyway, let’s get the deets:
Oooh, maybe Sinema isn’t as awful as we thought and… what’s that you say?
A $15 minimum wage doesn’t even have full support among Senate Democrats, including Sinema and Manchin. Manchin has repeatedly said he would favor something closer to $11 per hour phased in over two years. Other Democrats, such as Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, have expressed concerns about how a $15 minimum wage would affect the restaurant industry.
The minimum wage in the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonstan is $12 Ameros.
