Linda McMahon, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Connecticut, suggested Thursday that the U.S. ought to take a second look at the federal minimum wage.People are now working two or three jobs just to make ends meet and now she wants to “review” the minimum wage. This is from a woman who is willing to spend up to $50 million of her own money on the campaign and made $46 million last year! This from a candidate who wants to keep the tax breaks for millionaires.
"The minimum wage now in our country, I think we've set that, so there are a lot of people have benefited from it in our country, but I think we ought to review how much it ought to be, and whether or not we ought to have increases in the minimum wage," McMahon said at a press conference.
Meanwhile, runaway teens are going homeless and ending up in slavery here in Connecticut because there are not enough beds for them in homeless shelters.
