The Biden Administration had a dream to make America fully green. In the process, they found out that making this reality was much more difficult than last thought. They now have to find a plan, and stick with it, to make America electric.
Emissions reduction, decarbonization of the U.S. power grid by 2035, and increased electrification in the transportation and building sectors will require an enormous amount of investment from the industry as well as government support.
Small business owners were on edge when the administration forced Government contractors to pay $15. Congress is now thinking of raising the wage again, which could change everything.
There is a popular mandate for a $15 federal minimum wage. Nearly two-thirds of Americans support the wage increase, include 40% who “strongly” back the proposal. In Florida, voters passed an amendment last November to raise the minimum wage, now $8.56, to $15 in 2026; it moves to $10 in September.
