The latest COVID package is expected to pass the U.S. House, but with one omission. The proposed increase to the federal minimum wage was removed from the package and will possibly be put forth as a separate bill. 12th District Representative Debbie Dingell discusses her support for an increase to $15 per hour. Dingell also discusses U.S. House passage of the "Equality Act" in her conversation with WEMU's David Fair.
