First, Cal Cunningham called for the impeachment
of President Trump. Now, Cunningham has joined Erica Smith in calling for a higher minimum wage
Estimates show even a $15 federally-mandated minimum wage would cause North Carolina to lose over 330,000
jobs by 2021. But national Democrats from Cunningham and Smith's party like Rashida Tlaib want to go even further and are calling for a $20 minimum wage
"Our economy is booming as month after month we see strong job creation, wage increases, and historic low unemployment, yet Democrats like Cal Cunningham and Erica Smith are in a race to the left, running on a platform to eliminate hundreds of thousands of North Carolina jobs," NRSC spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez said
. "North Carolina families deserve a Senator who will fight for a strong economy, and it's clear both Cal and Erica will destroy our progress."
