BREAKING: Senate Parliamentarian Says Including $15 Minimum Wage in Democrats’ COVID Package Violates Budget Rules

NEW YORK, NY – NOVEMBER 10: Low wage workers and supporters protest for a $15 an hour minimum wage on November 10, 2015 in New York, United States. In what organizers are calling a National Day of Action for $15 and hour minimum wage, thousands of people took to the streets across the country to stage protests in front of businesses that are paying some of their workers the minimum wage.

The Senate Parliamentarian on Thursday ruled that including $15 minimum wage in Democrats’ COVID package violates Senate budget rules.

The Huffington Post reported:

Democrats’ push to pass a $15 minimum wage in their $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package violates Senate rules, according to the Senate’s parliamentarian, who delivered a likely fatal blow Friday to the effort to give tens of millions of workers a raise.

For weeks, Democrats have been waiting for a ruling from the Senate parliamentarian, who oversees Senate procedure, on whether they can raise the minimum wage through the budget reconciliation process, the legislative maneuver that will allow Democrats to pass legislation with a simple majority.

House Democrats are expected to soon vote on a COVID-19 package that includes raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour in stages over the next four years. The provision also eliminates the tipped minimum wage, which currently allows employers to pay workers a lower base wage as long as the workers receive gratuities.

The proposal would give an estimated 27 million workers raises over the next four years. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 and has not been increased in more than a decade.

​​​In Uncerta​in Times, How To Put Gold And Silver Into A Tax-Advantaged Account

(Note: Thank you for supporting American businesses like the one presenting a sponsored message below and publishers like Gateway Pundit. We appreciate your support!)

Big banks and the IRS want you to think, the only way to save for retirement is to load up on stocks – and feed the Wall Street beast.

I’m sure that I don’t need to tell you that this “beast” can bite the hand that feeds it, just as it did in 2008 and again in recent months, when the “Corona Crash” tanked Wall Street.

But, you have options. Did you know that you can move your retirement savings out of stocks, and KEEP your tax-advantaged status?

Have you heard about Section 408(m)(3)? It’s a little-known cousin of Section 401(k) of IRS code. I like to call it the “cheat code” that unlocks investments you simply can’t find on Wall Street. Here’s what I mean…

Section 408(m)(3) lets you open a Precious Metals “Self Directed” IRA and put REAL gold and silver into a tax-advantaged account.

Here are three good reasons to consider this IRS “cheat code”…

#1: Gold protects against stock crashes.

#2: Unlike the dollar, gold maintains its purchasing power over time.

#3: If something catastrophic happens to the dollar, gold can be used as currency around the world.
