Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said during a press conference on Tuesday that he would consider supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) ‘jobs for all‘ legislation after he studies it.

A reporter asked Schumer if he would support legislation proposed by Sanders that would guarantee a job and health-care benefits for every American.

The Washington Post reported on Sanders’ proposed legislation:

“Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will announce a plan for the federal government to guarantee a job paying $15 an hour and health-care benefits to every American worker “who wants or needs one,” embracing the kind of large-scale government works project that Democrats have shied away from in recent decades.

“Well, I’d like to look at his proposal. I think we should do everything we can to get people jobs, and I’d look at his proposal. I haven’t studied it yet,” Schumer said.
