Sanders: Employment Has Gone up Where the Minimum Wage Has Been Raised

‘$15-an-hour moved, developed over several years, is a reasonable price’

Sen. Sanders Touts $15 Minimum Wage, Says ‘Employment Up’ in States With Higher Wages (CNS News)

(CNSNews.com) -- Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a self-identified socialist, touted a $15-an-hour minimum wage at a rally on Wednesday, but did not directly answer whether the minimum wage should be $100- or $50-an-hour and instead said that research shows that $15-an-hour is a “reasonable price.”

He also rejected the idea that raising the price of labor would cause some people to lose their jobs or not get hired in the first place.
