Roberson and Senate GOP Vote 3 Times Against Raising the Minimum Wage

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Zach Hudson released the following statement after former Tom DeLay operative and GOP Senate boss Michael Roberson and Senate Republicans voted to gut overtime pay and against raising the minimum wage:

“Consider today’s vote to cut overtime pay for Nevada workers only the latest assault on the paychecks of middle class families by Michael Roberson and legislative Republicans.  Not only did Roberson and Senate Republicans vote to cut overtime pay, they also voted three times against raising the minimum wage.  The reality is: under Michael Roberson’s leadership, Senate Republicans have proposed repealing the minimum wage from Nevada’s constitution and are now on the record opposing a real minimum wage increase. Michael Roberson and Senate Republicans again made clear today that they care more about protecting the bottom lines of big corporations than helping middle class families put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads.”
