This is insane. Another bill pandering to the masses, but politicians who have never actually generated a single thing in the private sector or had a career outside of government. Newflash... Government doesnt generate wealth, lift people out of poverty, or give you free stuff. All of this "funding" is taken others. This would drastically harm small business. If someone earning the federal minimum wage cannot gain additional skill or increase their value to the company they are working for to justify a wage increase, that should not mean they just get more money for showing up. Instead forcing businesses to should the burden of mediocrity is wrong on so many accounts. This bill will contribute to higher unemployment in small business, guaranteed. Feel good social policy doesnt work in the real world, eventually you run out of other peoples money. Ask Venezuela.
