ISSUES: Senator John Hickenlooper

FOR

Minimum Wage

The current talking point is whether the federal government should raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

DETAILS:

AGAINST Republicans

Republicans feel a sudden minimum wage hike would hurt most businesses, who would have to hire fewer employees and give existing workers fewer hours to absorb the costs, especially small and medium sized businesses with a small employee payroll budget.

FOR Democrats

The current goal of the democratic party is to raise minimum wage to $15 an hour and protect the overtime rule that ensures workers are compensated for holidays and extra hours.


AGAINST

Immigration

$
The laws regarding how our country works with people who want to enter, both temporarily and for citizenship.

Republicans support immigrants entering the country, but they feel it is government responsibility to first look out for American families and workers. Then those who enter the country legally. Then those who enter the country illegally. They feel current immigration laws should be upheld and ‘sanctuary cities’ should be denied federal aid. source

AGAINST Democrats
