Massachusetts U.S. Senator Ed Markey advocates for a $15-an-hour minimum wage, but what about a $20 an hour?
Markey sounded game during a recent interview with New Boston Post.
Over the past year, some Democrats have signaled support for a minimum wage higher than $15 an hour. Presidential candidate and billionaire Tom Steyer voiced his support for a $22 an hour minimum wage earlier this month. And last July, U.S. Representative Rashida Tlalib (D-Michigan), a self-described democratic socialist and member of “The Squad,” argued the minimum wage should be around $20 an hour.
