California Democrat Congresswoman Barbara Lee advocated for a $50 minimum wage, citing the high cost of living in areas such as the Bay Area.

She argued that current wages are insufficient for families to survive.

“In the Bay Area, I believe it was the United Way … came out with a report that very recently $127,000 for a family of four is just barely enough to get by,” Lee said.

“Just do the math. Of course, we have national minimum wages that we need to raise to a living wage,” Lee added. “We’re talking about $20, $25 — fine. But I have got to be focused on what California needs and what the affordability factor is when we calculate this wage,” she said.

Democrats certainly are skilled at stupidity and how to destroy an economy! 10631
