Ernst Would Deny Minimum Wages To 1 Million Veterans

Classy Iowa GOP communications director admits to not caring about “solid facts.”

Progress Iowa:

1 million veterans across the country would benefit from raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Joni Ernst wants to abolish the federal minimum wage, ignoring the needs of those veterans.

On Veterans Day, we decided to hold Ernst accountable for ignoring the needs of veterans. For that, we were called ‘classless’ by the Iowa Republican Party’s Director of Communications. The image we shared is below, along with the GOP response.

We will never back down from standing up for our veterans — especially those who, despite their service, make less than $10.10 an hour and deserve a raise.

And we will never back down from holding our elected officials accountable — especially those who ignore the needs of veterans and working families who just want a fair shot at the American dream.

You can help us fight back by spreading the word

Thanks for all you do,
