Texas city council considers $22 minimum wage
Mike Rowe slams Dem’s call for $30 minimum wage: ‘Why not $50?’
Mike Rowe, host of ‘How America Works’ on FOX Business, weighs in after Democratic congressional candidate Rebecca Parson called for a $30 minimum wage.
Austin’s City Council is considering raising the minimum wage for full-time employees from $15 to $22 an hour.
The proposal, first brought forth by District 2 City Councilwoman Vanessa Fuentes, comes amid a general increase in the cost of living in Austin. That, in turn, has created high vacancy rates for city jobs lost to workers attracted by better pay in the private sector.
