You know I would think that since renown socialist Bernie Sanders, (who also happens to be a multi-millionaire and own three homes), is so adamant in his socialist beliefs that he would would team up with AOC and Liawatha and create a competitor to Walmart, pay all their employees a minimum of 15/hr and just show us how it's done!

There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time.
