The GOP Tax Bill Has Been the Best Thing for the Fight for $15

It has been just over a month since President Trump signed the GOP tax bill into law, and the biggest winner might be Fight for $15.

The Fight for $15 is a national campaign, which demands a federal minimum wage of $15 an hour. The movement gained national exposure during the 2016 presidential election when Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) actively supported the movement. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, also expressed support for the Fight for $15 campaign.

Well, it appears that Trump and the GOP tax bill have done what Democrats couldn’t do, now that over 30 companies have announced they will be increasing their minimum wage to $15 an hour. Several others companies are announcing a significant increase in their minimum wage.

Major American institutions like Capital One, Humana, JPMorgan Chase, Regions Financial Corporation, Travelers Cos. Inc, U.S. Bancorp, and Wells Fargo have all announced they will be increasing their minimum wage to $15 an hour. Other major American companies like Wal-Mart and Starbucks have also announced that they will be increasing their current minimum wage.

It’s not just major institutions that are increasing their minimum wage to $15 an hour. Many local businesses have also announced they will increase their minimum wage to $15.
