Cardi B continues to encourage her fans to be abreast of the state of affairs in the United States and to, especially, be active during the oncoming presidential election process.
Yesterday, the Money rapper shared a clip of herself interviewing Bernie Sanders on the topic of wages and jobs in the United States.
“The topic that was mentioned the most by all of you was about raising MINIMUM WAGE. I got the chance to ask @berniesanders about this, and these are his answers,” she wrote in the post’s caption. “Keep sending your questions, we will be addressing more of these soon!”
In the video, she asked Sanders, “What are we gonna do about wages in America?” Adding that before she became famous, she “felt like no matter how many jobs I got, I wasn’t able to make any means.” To which Sanders responded: Americans are “earning what I consider to be starvation wages.”
He continued, “How do you pay for rent? How do you pay for food? How do you pay for transportation?”
Cardi took a veiled shot at the current president, saying that certain people “like to brag that there are more jobs in America now…but what are they paying at these jobs? They practically pay nothing.” And this prompted Sanders to tout legislation he’s pushed that would raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour and said that he would throw his support behind labor unions so that workers could “sit down and engage in collective bargaining and earn a decent living.”

So I know this is long over due but here it is ! A couple of weeks ago I asked my followers if you all had the chance to ask a Democratic candidate a question, what would that question be? The topic that was mentioned the most by all of you was about raising MINIMUM WAGE. I got the chance to ask @berniesanders about this, and these are his answers. Keep sending your questions, we will be addressing more of these soon!
