Did Romney actually do something good?
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) are going to introduce legislation that would raise the minimum wage to $10 but also give Americans E-VERIFY.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) will soon introduce legislation that would begin to raise the federal minimum wage to $10 an hour.
The legislation, which has not yet been released, would gradually increase the federal minimum wage over a period of four years beginning next year and then index the minimum wage to inflation, according to a joint statement the senators released Tuesday.
“For millions of Americans, the rising cost of living has made it harder to make ends meet, but the federal minimum wage has not been increased in more than ten years,” said Romney. “Our legislation would raise the floor for workers without costing jobs and increase the federal minimum wage to $10, automatically raising it every two years to match the rate of inflation.”
Under the proposal, businesses with fewer than 20 employees would increase their wages at a slower rate than other businesses. During the same period of time, the youth minimum wage would increase to $6 per hour, from $4.25 per hour. The proposal would also prevent a federal wage increase from going into effect during the COVID-19 emergency.
A second component of the legislation would make use of E-Verify to curb the number of employers providing jobs to illegal immigrants. This component would “preserve American jobs for legal workers and remove incentives for increased illegal immigration,” according to a proposal summary released by the Utah senator’s office. “We must create opportunities for American workers and protect their jobs, while also eliminating one of the key drivers of illegal immigration,” said Romney.
From what I can see this would be a great deal for Americans.
Yes, we are giving a minimum wage increase to $10 but it comes with protecting American workers and stopping their wages from being undercut by illegal aliens.
Before my mind is made up on this I’ll have to see more.
