the federal minimum wage, if Donald Trump gets his way, there won’t be a federal minimum wage at all
. When Trump was asked in May
if the “federal government [should] set a floor,” he made his position very clear: “No, I’d rather have the states go out and do what they have to do.”
But that shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone, because Donald Trump’s on multiple occasions insisted that “wages are too high“ — apparently indifferent to the fact that minimum wage earners pulling in $15,000 per year are living in poverty.
