GOP blocks Democrats’ minimum wage try in Senate | Black Politics on the Web
I can't believe Senate Republicans blocked a chance to help hundreds of thousands of Americans earn a wage that lifts them out of poverty. The fear that companies would be forced to lay-off works is a concern, but shouldn't be a deal breaker. Many affected companies can meet the wage and remain competitive and profitable. There are 21 states and/or US protectorates that currently meet or exceed the federal minimum wage. What's the problem? Oh yea, Republicans seem to remain blindly committed to blocking almost anything this President advances....even if America could be advanced. Let's remember this fact whenever we vote.
