A Democratic Socialist candidate for Congress in Washington state proposes a minimum wage of $ 30, saying the current pressure for a minimum wage of $ 15 is an “outdated requirement.”
Rebecca Parson, who is running for Congress in Washington’s 6th District, tweeted on April 21 that the minimum wage should be raised to $ 30.
“$ 15 minimum wage is an outdated requirement. It should be $ 30 an hour,” Parson tweeted.

Parson added that “$ 30 is the word,” urging people to reflect on why they “strike down poor people” while praying for “Saint Elon.”
“1 adult supporting 1 child needs $ 30 an hour across the country. Rural, urban, suburban: $ 30 is the word. While praying your nightly prayers for Saint Elon while you fall asleep tonight, so reflect on why you are cracking down on the poor instead of up to your heavenly billionaire, “she added.
“No one should be poor in the richest country on Earth,” she added.
Parson joined the Democratic Socialists of America after Democratic New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won his bid to become a member of the US House of Representatives.
