Democrats vs. The Repubs On Raising The Minimum Wage

This is from the October 29, 2004 program of Bill Moyers NOW!

This clip goes with this one.

The Democrats are all for a raise in the minimum wage. John Kerry has stated more than once during countless speeches and, I believe, during all three debates, that raising the minimum wage would be one of the first things he does in office.

The Republicans, as usual, choose to blame the victim -- and have been fighting a minimum wage increase for quite some time now.
