Cities within Missouri raised the minimum wage. The state legislature has finally been able to veto it and everyone who makes the current raised minimum will now go back to $7.70/hr. They’ve all just been given a pay cut.
This should be illegal.
Suggestion for inbound Democrats in Congress: When you get the majority, find your fucking backbones and institute a new unbreakable rule, even making it an amendment:
“All politicians, either in office or retired, are hereby prohibited from earning a salary that is higher than the federal and pertinent states’ minimum wage.”
Take away their fucking government Single Payer Healthcare, too . . .
