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

Publish date:

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.

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.
