$15 National Minimum Wage

I am a longtime advocate for increasing the minimum wage.  I am also an advocate for a living wage.  $15 may be a living wage in some parts of the United States but in the SF Bay Area, it is not.  Ask anyone who is making that much money in San Francisco.

Anyone who works full-time should be guaranteed a wage sufficient to cover basic needs without having to resort to charity or government subsidy.

If elected, I will work to craft and pass national living wage legislation.
