Democratic National Committee (DNC) Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) called for a maximum wage during a recent interview.

“I did not make a joke about maximum wage. I made a statement about maximum wage,” Ellison said. “If you make more than 20 times more than the people who actually make the products and do the services of your company, then we’re going to tax you more.”

Ellison then attacked the CEO of McDonald’s for making $9,000 an hour, (which is inaccurate: the CEO of McDonald’s makes around $4,000 an hour).

“So I wasn’t joking about having a maximum wage. Why shouldn’t there be a maximum wage?” Ellison asked.
