Bernie Sanders targets Walmart over $15 minimum wage

in #dlike6 years ago


In his latest broadside against big business, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is introducing a bill Thursday that would prevent large companies like Walmart from buying back stock unless their employees are paid at least $15 an hour.

I applaud Bernie for his persistence but, as we saw with Amazon, it is nothing but a photo op for these companies.  Amazon agreed to the $15 an hour pay but it was nothing more than a bait and switch.  Those who received raises ended up getting a cut in the bonuses or stock options.  Most hourly workers will now get LESS.  But hey, Bezos looked good agreeing to it.  Wal-Mart and other companies will get around this if it ever did pass which it won't since the corporations run the politicians.

I love me some Bernie Sanders, he is always fighting for higher wages for the people, so I am not surprised he is taking on Walmart

That is surely a good support for Walmart employees..I hope the bill would come through...
