This will help, but by doing this wage increase incrementally, the workers will still be behind. By 2026 it will need to be $25 hour.

Even worse for the 10-15 million unemployed.

This is a joke, in the 6 years it takes to get there some rich A holes will get it over turned. The USA is a dead black hole…get out if you can.

Yep, you got it spot on. The Federal minimum wage hasn’t increased since 2009. The fight for $15 is really too little, too late. They always do it so gradually that by the time it is implemented it is already 10 years behind.

Inflationary, everyone will pay much higher prices for everything, employers will reduce staff and unemployment will rise. Other than that, great idea.
