    Just "crumbs" according to your "Fearless Leader", Nanny Pelosi.

    3% last year and projected to be 3.2% this year, amazing salary increases. For a minimum wage worker that would be 21 cents in 2017 and a whopping 23 cents in 2018, Trumpaloompas rejoice. Democrats would have given them a 3 dollar an hour raise last year and a couple more this year.


    Our Price Basket: There has been about a 32% increase from 2008 to 2017.

    Healthcare: There has been about a 32% increase from 2008 to 2017.

    United States Consumer Price Index (CPI) : There has been about a 15% increase from 2008 to 2017.

    Wages: There has been about a 12% increase from 2008 to 2017.

    As for the minimum wage during the last 9 years:
    For work performed on or after July 24, 2009, the Federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour.
    Hmm, zero increase, Republicans must have controlled the House since 2010, amirite?

    "Crumbs" and "deplorables" and what other little code words do you have for working Americans?

    Not everyone can live in a gated mansion in an exclusive San Fran neighborhood like Pelosi.

    Yep, she's a one percenter, all right.

    She has no idea about normal citizens who actually have to work to pay the bills...

    I didn't see crumbs or deplorables mentioned in my post, but now that you bring it up...why has minimum wage not been raised in the last 8 years? Inflation has damn sure occurred, especially in food prices. Could it be because the GOP has controlled the House and would rather die than help a poor person?

    Maybe you have all the money you'll ever need, but some are struggling and rising wages are actually a good thing for them, not something to be scorned and ridiculed.

    Wages going up even a little is a good thing.
    Low expectation Republican. Now we know why you support someone like Trump.

    I’d rather call you a Republican. Nutter or right wing hack might get me banned from the thread.

    Trump's made all those terms synonymous.
