MI Democrats call for higher minimum wage while paying interns zilch

By Jarrett Skorup | Michigan Capitol Confidential

While Democrats in Michigan are calling for business owners to pay a higher minimum wage, those same politicians are paying their own workers far below that amount.

In fact, some of their workers are paid nothing.

Former congressman Mark Schauer is running for governor, partially on a platform of increasing the minimum wage 25 percent — up to $9.25 per hour. Schauer said in a story on the Huffington Post that mandating higher wages is “simple economics” that “creates demand in the economy.”
