Senator Bernie Sanders has identified issues and his position on such issues (https://berniesanders.com/issues/; obtained 02-21-2016). This current presidential candidate has a relatively high level intuition (see previous articles on the mainstream 2012 US Presidential Candidates for the methodology used here and previously to determine level of intuition) and likely the highest of any candidate currently running for US President in either the Democratic or Republican Party. Per his website (https://berniesanders.com/issues/creating-jobs-rebuilding-america/; 02-21-2016) he began to identify issues and his position on such issues. Here is an excerpt from one issue he identified: “A Living Wage” (https://berniesanders.com/issues/a-living-wage/; obtained on 02-21-2016) that began the following way:
“Millions of Americans are working for totally inadequate wages. We must ensure that no full-time worker lives in poverty. The current federal minimum wage is starvation pay and must become a living wage. We must increase it to $15 an hour over the next several years.
Millions of American employees have been working 50 or 60 hours a week while receiving no overtime pay. That is why Bernie has been encouraging the Obama Administration to ensure that more workers receive overtime pay protection. The Administration’s new rule extending that protection to everyone making less than $947 a week is a step in the right direction. It is a win for our economy and for our workers.
Lastly, we must support and strengthen the labor movement to ensure that workers have a say in their own economic futures. That’s why Bernie has been a strong supporter of the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for workers to organize and bargain collectively.”
