John Knefel comments on the long and continuing battle for a federal minimum wage of $15 an hour after a vote failed to pass the Senate as part of an amendment to the most recent COVID relief bill.
Tasked with a clear mandate from more than 81 million people who voted for him, Biden & co. are clanging one open layup after another.
The West Virginia senator isn't some moderating force. He's an impediment to progress.
A $15 minimum wage is the kind of broadly popular policy Democrats should embrace with open arms. But the president doesn't want to.
