By Eleanore Wood / November 5, 2020 /

Earl Bradley Durham, NC I voted for Biden because he’s for helping the people instead of leaving us out there to dry. And he’s for raising the minimum wage, which we need to raise to $15/hr.  Because at $7.25/hr we can’t live off of that. Only reason I say we can’t live off of that…

So my voting is based…
