Amazon does the just thing by raising minimum wage to $15.

Amazon’s decision to raise the minimum wage for employees to $15 is an admirable step toward addressing America’s wealth gap. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who had been highly critical of the company’s treatment of low-wage workers, praised Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest person. Sanders urged other businesses to emulate Amazon. “You cannot continue to pay your workers starvation wages,” Sanders said in an interview with CNN. “Learn from what Bezos has done. He has done the right thing. You have got to do it as well.” See more of David Horsey’s cartoons at: View other syndicated cartoonists at:
