Elizabeth Warren - Senate HELP Committee - Minimum Wage
Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren wants to know one thing: why isn’t the minimum wage at $22 per hour?
During a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions hearing Monday, Warren cited a study that showed the minimum wage had stayed flat since 1960 and it has not risen with the rise of inflation and the increased cost of living.
