No more money for murray darling warns costello
PALM BEACH, Fla. – Democratic U.S. Senator Bill Nelson told NBC 5 on Wednesday he isn’t buying the idea that he can’t raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour, despite his insistence that his Democratic opponent, Republican Doug Jones, is willing to go $15 an hour.
«I think $15 an hour is the maximum. I think it’s going to happen,» Nelson told TODAY. «Doug Jones is a candidate who will support raising the minimum wage and I support raising it. There’s nothing that I’m saying that is going to make it more difficult for us to raise the minimum wage.»
The Democratic nominee has not yet endorsed a $15 minimum wage because she hasn’t said so publicly. However, in August, she said it wasn’t necessary for businesses to hire as many people at $13 an hour if minimum wage were r더킹카지노aised.

The former governor has argued on the issue that minimum wage is needed to create jobs while he’s served as the Florida Statehouse. He told TODAY he’s the only candidate for president who will support raising the minimum wage to $15, even though he could not say that at the time.
In a recent interview with the Miami Herald, Nelson also noted the need for Florida to raise its minimum wage to $15 over the next year and a half. The st우리카지노ate has only posted the official minimum wage on a temporary basis, he said.
«I’ve gotten calls saying, “Hey, do you know that when the minimum wage goes up in the summer, and not in the fall, you’re getting a little lower sales tax and it gets much more expensive? What do you mean it gets expensive?” We have to pay people more,» he told the newspaper at the time. «The other issue we have to address, when this minimum wage goes up, is that people who work and we will be making about $8.50 by July, $10 by 더킹카지노July of next year, we have to consider that that’s because, I think, of inflation. I believe in inflation that you have to be at $8.50 by July or we have to look at creating some new jobs for the people in Tallahassee.»
