BONUS: Now That Bernie Made Amazon Raise Its Pay, He Sets His Sights on Wal-Mart

Bernie Sanders proposed legislation that would have made things very tough for Amazon unless they paid their workers a living wage. Well, it worked. Amazon DID raise wages for all of their employees. So what next? Well, Bernie is setting his sights on Wal-Mart for the same issue. Wal-Mart doesn't pay their employees a living wage and Bernie has teamed up with Rep. Ro Khana (D-CA) to introduce legislation with hopes of convincing Wal-Mart to do the same thing. Peter Ogburn talks to Gideon Resnick from The Daily Beast. They discuss the details on the new legislation and what Bernie hopes to accomplish, which Gideon wrote about in the piece linked below:https://www.thedailybeast.com/after-taking-on-amazon-bernie-sanders-introduces-bill-to-push-walmart-to-raise-wages?ref=author
