Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, suggested raising the minimum wage to $22 per hour is only logical if you look at the numbers.
If we started in 1960, and we said [that] as productivity goes up then the minimum wage was going to go up the same if that were the case, the minimum wage today would be about $22 an hour, the senator said, at a recent Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on Keeping up with a Changing Economy: Indexing the Minimum Wage.
The current minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Ms. Warren wondered, in a YouTube video of the hearing posted by her staff: What happened to the other $14.75?
She answered her own question: It sure didnt go to the worker.

Shoot me now.
That’s big Wampum .
if $12 is good, why not $1200? Wouldn’t that be a hunert times better???
Elizabeth Warren: a blond haired, blue eyed woman, hired as an Indian at Harvard, who made her millions in the 90s flipping houses and made her name in the 00s as a regulator suing “predatory lenders”, who ran for office in 2012 on a platform of hating Wall Street bankers all while taking millions in campaign dollars from Wall Street bankers is now lecturing us on how to fix the economy?
Thank you. My sentiments exactly.
Has she gone off the reservation???
Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee ‘princess’...lol...I wonder what she’d think if she knew many of her Cherokee ancestors were slave owners and FILTHY rich. IF she were actually part Cherokee, she’d know that.
“Shoot me now.”
Out of my way, I got in line first....
“...raising the minimum wage to $22 per hour is only logical ....”
Tells you something about Warren’s warped logic right there....
Then everyone whose skills don’t merit $22/hr instantly become unemployable.
This brainless member of the Fuggawi Tribe should really shoot for $220/hr. Hey, let’s go for it now. Using her Native Indian thinking, then gasoline should be around $25 a gallon, right?
Quick, stop her. Trade her some beads.
What is stopping Massachusetts from raising the minimum wage themselves?
Not if you sue the employer for not hiring you . . . then, with the $2,000,000 settlement, you can stay at home all day, watch Jerry Springer, then Maury, and then Dr. Phil. See . . . all is not lost.
$7.50/hour is bad, $9.00/hour is better - than $50/hour would be great!
Then 100% of the people would all be above-average!
That’s how her mind works.
Heap big Wampum. Squaw needum heap big wampum, go to Washington and talk with great black father. Many moons go by, she come back with heap big wampum for people.
Like when Reverent Ike said that if you sent fifty dollars to his ministry, the Lord would give you the lottery number.
