Bernie Sanders has campaigned for raising the federal minimum wage, but some members of his presidential campaign staff want them to start working on the "poverty wage".
The Vermont Senator praised the House for adopting a bill that would raise the federal minimum wage to $ 15, while some of its field staff would seek more than their current wages.
