Biden urges US Congress to raise minimum wage to $15

United States President-elect Joe Biden called for both chambers of the US Congress to "ensure prompt action" to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour for all Americans.

"It's long past time to raise the minimum wage, so hardworking people earn at least $15 an hour. I hope that Democratic control of the House and Senate will ensure prompt action to get it done," Biden tweeted.

Previously, the president-elect unveiled he would make passing the country's next coronavirus stimulus bill a top priority, adding the package is likely to be "worth trillions."
