  • Why should the taxpayers off our country, many of whom are struggling economically as a result of the pandemic, be subsidizing the starvation wages being paid at some of the largest, The most profitable corporations in America?

  • The largest welfare recipient in America happens to be the wealthiest family in America.

  • The Walton family, a family that owns the largest corporation in America, Wal Mart, this corporation that they own.

  • Walmart made over $15 billion in profit last year alone.

  • And yet, despite this massive family wealth, despite these very high corporate profits, Wal Mart pays wages solo that tens of thousands of their employees are forced to rely on public assistance in order to survive.

  • Maybe if you are a billionaire family, you may not understand this, but the simple truth is that no one in America can live with dignity, can raise a family on 11 or $12 an hour.

  • I am also sympathetic to providing small businesses with the tax relief that they need to offset some of the increased labor costs associated with the minimum wage increase.

  • Just as Congress has done virtually every time that it has increased the minimum wage in my view, the best way to help small business is to put cash into the pockets of low wage workers who will then spend that money in grocery stores, restaurants and small businesses all across this country.

Why should the taxpayers off our country, many of whom are struggling economically as a result of the pandemic, be subsidizing the starvation wages being paid at some of the largest, The most profitable corporations in America?
