Hey, at least Nancy is looking out for the corporate workers with her mandated $15/hr by 2021.

This is from the House bill:


Section 407 of the pending House bill:
"15 (c) PERMANENT REQUIREMENTS ON ALL CORPORA16 TIONS RECEIVING FEDERAL AID RELATED TO COVID–
17 19.—Any corporation that receives Federal aid related to
18 COVID–19 shall permanently comply with the following:
19 (1) PAID LEAVE FOR WORKERS.—The corporation shall provide at least 14 days of paid leave to
21 workers (employees and contractors, full-time and
22 part-time) who—
23 (A) are unable to telework;
24 (B) need to be isolated or quarantined to
25 prevent the spread of COVID–19; or
1 (C) need time off to care for the needs of
2 family members.
3 (2) MINIMUM WAGE.—The corporation shall
4 pay each employee (full-time and part-time) of the
5 corporation a wage of not less than $15 an hour, beginning not later than January 1, 2021.

7 (3) LIMITATION ON CEO AND EXECUTIVE
8 PAY.—The corporation may not have a CEO to median worker pay ratio of greater than 50 to 1 and
10 no officer or employee of the corporation may re ceived higher compensation than the chief executive
12 officer (or any equivalent position). "


Highlight is mine.


That's not looking out for workers. That will cost people their jobs. There are tons of small businesses that are incorporated, and many of them can't afford to pay their workers $15 an hour. They will either be run out of business or they'll have to significantly cut their workforce.

Yay proggressivism!

This kind of wishlist nonsense that makes no economic sense doesn't belong in a rescue package.


Come on ATS!!! Stop screwing with our posts.

Um... that was sarcasm. I guess I should have put a [sarcasm][/sarcasm] tag around it so you would pick that up.

Have you bothered to read her latest bill that I got that from? I've been looking through it all day and it's full of CRAP that doesn't need to be there. She is one of the most disgusting forms of human life I've ever seen.

My mistake. Yes I did bother to read it (not the entire 1400 pages, but I read a lot of the crap.) I've been blasting it on this and other threads since yesterday afternoon.

Ummm, is this alternative facts?

FACT is, it was a MINORITY of people in a low turnout. We got the dregs at the bottom, hence Trump. The Trailer Trash President.

The only presidential election in the last 48 years that had a higher turnout rate than 2016 was 2008.

Who gave you YOUR alternative facts, the media? Why do you supposed they had to lie to you about it being a low-turnout election when that's factually inaccurate?

Mark Werner, not exactly Trump's biggest fan, just said on Fox that Mnuchin has been very reasonable throughout the negotiations.

So for those pretending Mnuchin just wanted a slush fund, apparently Werner wasn't told to say that by big media. He accidentally told the truth.

I still remember Obama's reaction when America rejected Democrats twice during his presidency... "The American people gave us a shellacking!"

this wouldn't be an issue if congressmen didn't always try to throw in multiple things that are usually unrelated to eachother when trying to pass bills. seriously needs to be a rule against that.

Everyone needs to spread this all over to as many people as you can. The media will not tell their lemmings all the ways Pelosi tried to exploit this crisis.

Moderate Democrats will be disgusted by this, but it's our job to make sure they hear about it.

Pelosi #ed up big-time.

Right so you are saying the Democrats are waiting and holding off relief for all the trailer trash, all 60+ million of them, who voted for Trump. I get it.

Chill dude, he is just saying exactly what liberals/progressives/Democrats think about 60+ million US citizens in the US.

I appreciate the honesty on behalf of the entire Democratic Party and how they view millions upon millions of their fellow Americans.
