Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Tuesday that he does not support increasing the minimum age to $15 an hour — a critical roadblock to including the proposal in the final coronavirus relief bill.
“No I’m not. I’m supportive of basically having something that’s responsible and reasonable,” Manchin told The Hill, asked if he is supportive of a $15 per hour minimum wage.
Manchin added that for West Virginia, his home state, that would be $11 per hour, and adjusted to inflation.
Manchin’s opposition underscores the headaches awaiting Democrats as they try to craft a final coronavirus relief bill.
