$15 minimum wage dropped from Democratic stimulus plan

The ruling means that Democrats won’t be able to pass the wage hike through the so-called “reconciliation” budget process in the Senate, which requires less votes than the full 60 that’s usually necessary to overpower a filibuster.

Democratic leaders reacted with disappointment on Thursday.

“We are deeply disappointed in this decision,” said Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer in a statement. “We are not going to give up the fight to raise the minimum wage to $15 to help millions of struggling American workers and their families.”

The pay boost is still in the language of the version of the coronavirus relief bill that’s up for a vote on in the House of Representatives on Friday, so it’s unclear how Democrats will move forward after the guidance.
