Looks like workers won't be seeing a minimum wage increase as part of the federal coronavirus relief effort.

Republicans shot it down, but eight Democrats voted against raising the minimum wage for workers and including it in the relief bill.

So as of now, there will NOT be a mandated federal raise to $15 minimum wage.

The vote was 42-58.

The eight Democrats who voted against the $15 minimum wage are Joe Machin (WV), Jon Tester (MT), Jeanne Shaheen (NH), Maggie Hassan (NH), Angus King (ME), Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), Tom Carper (DE), and Chris Coons (DE).

WATCH as Democratic Senator Sinema turns it down:



Bernie Sanders was not very happy about it, as reported on CBS News:

"If any senator believes this is the last time they will cast a vote on whether or not to give a raise to 32 million Americans, they are sorely mistaken," [Bernie] Sanders said in a statement. "We're going to keep bringing it up, and we're going to get it done because it is what the American people demand and need."

Sanders offered the amendment after Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough ruled that a $15 minimum wage hike cannot be included in the Senate COVID relief package under the budget reconciliation process. In that process, legislation can advance with a simple majority instead of 60 votes, but the legislation has to follow strict budgetary rules.

"I think the parliamentarian was dead wrong," said Sanders, speaking on the Senate floor Friday morning. "But more importantly, it is an absurd process that we allow an unelected staffer, somebody who works for the Senate, not elected by anybody, to make a decision as to whether 30 million Americans get a pay raise or not."

It's not a good thing when the Democrats are voting this down. It signals there may be some conflict in the Democratic Party.

It's like they can't even get along or agree with each other.
