This is the progressive left. Did we ever think they would be satisfied with $15 per hour?

Why Stop at $15? Advocates Say $33 Wage Needed in NYC
Making sure those who need to gain work experience won’t ever be hired.
Fifteen-dollar-an-hour minimum wage is so yesterday.
In an op-ed in the New York Times, Ginia Bellafante points to a study showing that a $33-per-hour minimum wage might be needed in New York City, saying that’s the amount necessary — about $69,000 extrapolated out over a year’s income — for a single parent with two school-aged children to live a decent quality of life in the Big Apple.
“In many, many cases, a $15 hourly wage will not bring a family, or even a single person, to an adequate living standard,” she wrote. “That hardly means the fight was worthless; it just means the war is ongoing.”
