DNC on Democratic Legislation to Raise the Minimum Wage

In response to House Democrats introducing legislation to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, DNC spokesperson Daniel Wessel released the following statement:


“Republican leadership has done nothing for American workers. Republicans gave massive tax breaks to the rich and big corporations at the expense of working families. Now, Democrats have taken over, and the contrast couldn’t be starker. Instead of prioritizing those at the top, Democrats want to put more money directly into the pockets of American workers.”
