Whose really in charge?
Recently on CNN, political commentator Van Jones threatened that it would be political suicide for the Democrats if they don’t raise the minimum wage.
According to Breitbart, Jones stated, “People have not had a real wage in a generation, a raise in a generation. So this is not just some little progressives want to do some politics stuff. It is suicide for the Democratic Party not to do everything it can to get more work and more wages for the people at the bottom, whether you’re talking about infrastructure or whether you’re talking about the minimum wage frankly, whether you’re talking about getting some of this student loan debt and other debt off the backs of people. I don’t know what they think is going to happen in two years when it’s time to get people to vote in a midterm election if you cannot point to anything besides a vaccine and maybe a check that’s been spent a long time ago by the time people get a chance to go and vote. You got to do something.”
