Right? The Democrats do not have the numbers in Congress to push it through. Even some Dems would vote against it in moderate/right-leaning areas.

people on this site have very little political understanding sometimes it seems.

We understand this. It’s just frustrating that a party that is supposed to be the “left” in the US always has to quickly concede to the right. Meanwhile Republicans are literal fascists in 2021 and are unapologetically so.

Totally get this and I feel the same too. But its out of Biden's hands. Take it up with the Congressional majority leaders. I don't think Biden's presidential influence over Congress will be as strong as it was back in the day

Perhaps. Theres always the question of how much cost companies might try to absorb thru lower profits and how much they will pass on to consumers thru higher prices. 

 

To compete with fast food some may try to absorb some of the costs if they can

 

However given most restaurants do have low profit margins i suspect the majority would have to be passed on to consumers anyway. U cant run on a loss so i dont think the impact on restaurants would be huge once price adjustments came.

 

I mean minimum wage took a decent big hike in our province some years ago as u may recall when in a short time it went from $10.25/h to $14/h an almost 40% increase

 

The impact on general economy and industries was remarkably mostly neutral given offseting factors even tho of course theres always the individuals who benefit more and those who do not

 

Restaurants did not fail here in Ontario for the most part. Prices did go up a lil

I mean my workplace did close partially because of the minimum wage hike :toofunny: it was one of the best jobs I had ever had too (pay was terrible of course but I enjoyed doing it & it was five minutes away from my apartment)

but you’re right, the effect was very neutral.

I'm pretty sure they did a recent study that found increasing the national minimum wage to $15 would reduce the number of people in poverty (obviously) but would reduce the number of jobs in the short term. I think it's the right move to increase the minimum wage, but right now, during a pandemic where jobs are already scarce, that's a hard enough argument to make that it would definitely hold up broader covid relief.

Honey, everyone prays for socialism until you have to live in it. IT. DOES. NOT. WORK.

Come live in Venezuela where socialism/communism has put it's people on dirt and **** and tell me if you would still want it.

It's so sick how everyone living  considerably good praise how communism is amazing because they don't know how it works hahaha.

(I'm not dragging you, but i had to make my point because really, what you are wishing for is not what you think it is).

Socialist programs cannot be equated to communism

President Biden

key words “In the COVID relief bill” 

 

Biden wants $15/hr, he’s just not going to earmark the COVID bill, which would likely slow down it’s chances of passing Congress.

 

 

Y’all really need to learn more about American politics than whatever Twitter says. Please take a PoliSci course or something

I thought the house got it in the bill after he said it the first time. If this was last week then maybe currently the consensus is it will be in it?

If you can’t increase the minimum wage as part of a pandemic relief plan you probably won’t get it passed anytime later. 

We can only operate in the NOW. As of NOW, Biden is saying it is not happening. This will be his first mayor legislation and he is giving up on a minimum wage increase. 

There are rules to “reconciliation” in order to get the meat of Covid relief passed.  That’s why it can’t/won’t make it in this Bill.

Mr Ricky

Why raise the wage in a period of time where people/businesses can't afford to pay their staff at this moment. Wait till COVID is done or atleast partly gone, till economy gets back on track.

People are trying to copy the Scandinavian model, not the Venezuelan model. Baby your understanding of democratic socialism cant be as basic as “vuvezela bad!!!”...

Misleading headline in order to get clicks.  It’s unlikely to happen...as party of the Covid relief Bill.  Doesn’t mean it won’t happen.  

This isn’t how Washington works. Either you get everything done at once, or nothing at all. Biden’s playing a risky game thinking he can get a clean bill on just the wage alone.

I cannot believe this has to be said but: If you can’t pay your employees a livable wage your business does not deserve to exist 

People work to LIVE. If your business isn’t enough for a full time employee to be able to at least pay rent and buy basic necessities, you are participating in cruel exploitation. 

 

THIS. If your business is barely making money every month AND you are underpaying your staff...your business is NOT lucrative.

Sad to see that Trump actually delivered on a lot of his promises from the get-go, no matter how the legislative bill short-changed the rights of people or how **** they were morally. He got done what he said to do

Sis what planet are you living on, he didn't get either of his biggest promises.
