“and then proposes an increase in the minimum wage,”

The minimum wage is not about the poor. Every study and analysis, including those done by the government, show that every increase causes more unemployment. Raising the minimum wage is all about helping the unions get more money. Almost every union contract has a clause pegging their wages to some multiple of the minimum wage. Increase the minimum wage and almost every union member gets an instant raise.
