Video: 3 GOP Missouri Senate Candidates Can't Name Minimum Wage

| by Michael Allen

During a radio debate on KMOX radio recently, three Missouri Republicans, running to take on Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) in November, were asked what the federal minimum wage was, but none of them knew the answer (video below).

Amazingly, all three - John Brunner, Sarah Steelman, and Todd Akin - said they would vote against increasing the minimum wage, even though they have no idea what it is.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

The federal minimum wage (and Missouri’s minimum wage) is $7.25 per hour. In 2007, Akin voted against raising the minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.25.
