On The Road To Ruin

Democrats set their sights on $15 minimum wage hike after winning the House

“On the legislation front, there will be a push to raise the minimum wage,” a Democratic House staffer told the Examiner.

After flipping at least 38 seats in midterm elections, Democrats have gained a large buffer in the House to make an agenda and advance legislation. The Senate remains in the hands of a GOP majority and will likely kill many of the proposals passed in the House.

While powerless to push through legislation without GOP support, a Democratic House can make it difficult for Trump to continue enacting his agenda. In the past, though, Trump has given signs that he would support an increase to the minimum wage, which might be enough to get Republicans to support some measure, but likely not to the full $15 an hour.
