    It's official. The Democrats' plan to enact federal law setting the minimum wage at $15/hr has been passed by the House of Representatives by a 231-199 vote, largely following party lines.

    McConnell is reportedly unlikely to take the bill up, while President Trump has threatened to veto it.

    That is too much pay for the majority of Americans...

    Pay should be based on productivity...

    Has no chance in hell of passing.

    They are trying to distract the people and make them forget that the 4 horsewomen are the face of the DNC.

    People will not forget.

    2020 will suck for them.

    Democrats believe in government artificially affecting the minimum wage and attempting to control the economy....which resulted in the piss-poor Obama economic record ... whereas Trump has proven that successful economic policies allow the free market economy and citizens of the US to grow the strongest US economy in DECADES.

    Democrats are completely clueless with regards to the economy.

    Most employers pay their workers an adequate wage. It's the menial jobs that pay the minimum. And those jobs are usually held by unskilled and/or uneducated people.Many teenagers used to work at fast food and other similar places. If the $15 minimum wage is somehow passed, many people will lose their jobs.

    The grocery store clerk will be replaced with self-checkout stations... Bank Tellers will be replaced with ATM's... Even the gas station clerk can be replaced with automated machines...

    Companies will find a way to rid themselves of the unskilled worker...

    The trouble with Democrats is they forget that if you start near the top, you lose your ambition to rise up from what you had before. And people will feel unhappy when their children with exposure to adult pay may squander excess earnings on drugs. Right now, there are a lot of opioids being brought into the country but the one called fentanyl over the border that kill 300 people a week. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 80-100 times stronger than morphine. Pharmaceutical fentanyl was developed for pain management treatment of cancer. The stronger strain, illegally imported over the border is the killer of a lot of America's illegal drug users between the ages of 13-24. Now Democrats don't have to stop with aborting American unborn citizens, they can go after America's youth, too by getting rid of the older children in this country. They think they can fool everyone. Sad for America.
