She’s really out to ruin everything…
At a “One Fair Wage” case in Detroit on Sunday, Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib called for a federal minimum wage of up to $20 an hour.
“Big fights like this one, $15. When we started it, it should have been $15. Now I think it should be $20 … It should be $20 an hour. $18-20 an hour,” Tlaib stated.
Tlaib and Michigan Democrat Debbie Dingell took part in an case called “Server for an Hour” in support of the Raise the Wage Act adopted Thursday by the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.
Tlaib raised the prevalent counter-argument that increasing the minimum wage in the wallets of employees will not actually feel like more cash.

“They say all this is going to raise the cost. But I can tell you, milk has gone up. Eggs has gone up. Everything has gone up. The cost of food has gone up. The cost of a lot of things that we need has gone up already,” she argued.
Far-left politicians have been calling for years to see a substantial rise in federal minimum wage. Presidential candidate and Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, for instance, promotes a minimum wage of $15 an hour, yet they have allegedly been locked up in conflicts with employees who say their annual wages do not match their dedication.
