Who coulda seen that coming?

Hope…


3/4: Tell the Biden administration and the Senate no excuses — raise the minimum wage!

A quick catch-up, if you need it: the Senate parliamentarian (an unelected official) has ruled that the $15/hour federal minimum wage raise passed by the House in the stimulus package does not meet the rules for budget reconciliation, the process which allows Democrats to bypass the Jim Crow filibuster with a simple majority.

There is no need for this. As President of the Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris has the power to overturn the parliamentarian’s ruling, thereby throwing out an arcane Senate procedure and helping tens of millions of Americans in need.

Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them to press the Biden administration to overturn the parliamentarian’s ruling on a $15/hour minimum wage, thereby delivering tens of millions of workers with a better life.

This is not without precedent: Vice President Harris has the power to overrule the parliamentarian’s call as other VP’s have done. She must use it.

Attaching the $15 minimum wage to the wildly popular stimulus package is Biden’s best shot of achieving it…because if he waits, he’ll have both the filibuster and a handful of moderate Democrats standing in his way (who are against the $15 increase, but unlikely to vote against the entire stimulus package to block it).

Biden needs a big push from us to make the right decision.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them to press President Biden to overturn the parliamentarian’s ruling and deliver on his campaign promise of a $15/hour minimum wage!
