Oookkk. Many people have asked if we're going to raise the minimum wage why not to $50 instead of a $15 minimum wage? Well, the jokes on you! That's exactly what Biden has in store for us. And, the excuse is climate change, no joke. Biden says jobs that pay $45 or $50 an hour - not $7 or $12 - are part of his climate-infrastructure plan (msn.com) "I think of one word when I think of climate change: jobs, good-paying jobs," he said. "Not $7 or $12 or $15, but $45, $50 an hour, plus healthcare. That's what is needed."
