GOP senators offer compromise on minimum wage as Dems ram bill through House

Some Senate Republicans say they agree that Americans working for minimum wage need a raise, offering a compromise proposal as Democrats say they’re “united” in pushing a federal $15 minimum wage through both houses of Congress.

In an op-ed published Monday by Fox News, Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Ut.) and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) defended their legislative effort introduced last month, calling Democrats’ proposal “an unserious scheme.”
