1. All for the economy first.

No real healthcare for people getting sick on the job (and then die).

Republicans don't mind killing living babies.
Republicans want to deny adequate health care to ordinary Americans.
Republicans want Americans to go back to work in dangerous conditions.
Republicans want corporations to have legal immunity for workers who get sick and die doing dangerous jobs.
Republicans are against requiring safe working conditions for ordinary Americans.
Republicans are OK with killing off 2-3% of children who go back to school early.

All for the economy first.

3. Excellent summary. "the minimum wage today is 25% lower than it was in 1965(adjusted for inflation)"

That statement sums it all up. While the hourly rate has increased it hasn't kept up with inflation and is effectively lower in 2020 than it was 55 years ago - wow, just wow.
