In his opinion, the increase in wages from $7.25 per hour to $15 will take place against the backdrop of the coronavirus crisis.

Other measures that the party representative promised voters during the election race included improving the benefits system and creating stronger collective agreements.

Biden believes that these measures will help US citizens to provide for their families and also make them richer. This will encourage the country to recreate the middle class to a level never seen before.

The sharp rise in the minimum wage in the USA is one of the main points in Biden's election program. For his part, current US President Donald Trump criticized these promises during the election debate. 

In his opinion, many businesses in the country will have to close down and dismiss employees altogether. This will lead to increased unemployment. Trump also believes that the minimum wage in the USA should be higher than it is now.
