Coons: I Support Indexing and ‘Increasing the Minimum Wage and Getting to $15 an Hour’

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) expressed his support for “indexing the minimum wage” and “increasing the minimum wage and getting to $15 an hour.”

Coons stated, “I support raising the minimum wage. I support indexing the minimum wage. I support increasing the minimum wage and getting to $15 an hour. I had some concerns about Bernie Sanders’ specific bill and how it raises the minimum wage that, frankly, got very little discussion about the impact of two provisions of it. I think we will get that done this year and I’ve already been having conversations with folks in my caucus about how we can get that done this year.”
