There was a bill to raise it to $15 passed by the House in 2019. It obviously went nowhere with the Republican Senate. I think one of the reasons it was included in the stimulus was to be able to blame Republican Senators for people not getting their $1400 checks. But I would be surprised if it didn’t come up again as a separate bill before the 2022 elections.It hasn't been passed, it was ruled it cannot be included in the stimulus bill.
There is 0 evidence the minimum wage has been raised. Feel free to correct me with the actual bill showing it's going up.
Progressives who have been pushing for the $15 minimum wage viewed the COVID relief bill as their best chance to raise pay for working-class Americanswww.usatoday.com
