As the SEIU-backed campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour picks up steam in certain states and municipalities, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders [D-VT] introduced legistlation last week seeking to establish a $15 minimum wage.
One of those candidates, Senator Bernie Sanders, independent of Vermont, introduced a bill on Wednesday that would raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. Mr. Sanders, more than any other contender for the Democratic nomination, has highlighted the subject repeatedly during his campaign, and he did so again at a rally in Washington on Wednesday where he discussed the bill.
Here is Sanders at the Washington rally.
