Democratic National Committee vice chair Keith Ellison said in a recent interview that he believes there should be a “maximum wage” in the United States.
An interviewer asked Ellison about a “joke” he made about a maximum wage, but Ellison insisted that he was being serious about the idea.
A maximum wage would presumably be achieved by taxing any earnings over a certain amount at 100 percent.
“What I’m saying is … If you were to say, ‘Look, if you make more than 20 times more than the people who actually make the products and do the services of your company,’ then we’re going to tax you more.”
Ellison further accused business owners of “screwing” the American people and the environment and asked, “Why shouldn’t there be a maximum wage?”
