Despite being a socialist and a long-time politician Bernie Sanders continues to be extremely popular with the Democrat base.
On a recent segment on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” the host Maria Bartiromo interviewed the founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream about their support for Sanders.
Ben and Jerry were not concerned with the extremely high tax rate of 92% mentioned by Sanders and they felt such a rate would not discourage entrepreneurs from starting new ventures.
Sanders also supports a $15 minimum wage and recent evidence from Seattle, Washington suggests the rising minimum wage in Seattle is responsible for employment losses in the city.
Finally, a young woman was fired from Yelp for publicly complaining about her inability to live on her minimum wage salary.
In this episode of “The Buzz with Deneen Borelli,” Deneen discusses Bernie Mania, his supporters and minimum wage.
