    I believe that all workers deserve a living wage. I therefore support a $15.00 national minimum wage.

    Wages remain too low for too many Wisconsin workers. We are lagging behind the rest of the country. Too many are working several part-time jobs just to get by. Too many are struggling to provide for their families, living paycheck to paycheck, without opportunity for advancement.

    As much as I favor this, I'm also very cautious at how this is being forced on small businesses (in the age of push button and automation) Increased minimum wage without proper support in place for the worker: - will lead to massive unemployment in big cities. - would drive businesses and revenue out of cities - could damage the middle class even more. I blame Hillary Clinton for this.
