28 Senators Want Fed Minimum Wage Set At Zero

Bill Scher

The contempt some Senate conservatives have for America’s workers runs pretty deep.

Filibustering a raise in the minimum wage wasn’t enough for 28 Senators. Today, they tried to finish the job and completely abolish the federal minimum wage. Bob Geiger and the AFL-CIO Weblog have the details.

Most cowardly, they weren’t even honest with America’s workers about what they were up to, masking their agenda with calls for “state flexibility.” At least, conservative pundit hero George Will proudly says the federal minimum wage should be zero.

Of course, no worker gets a vote on whether George Will stays in his job.
