HuffPost: Rick Berg, GOP Senate Candidate In North Dakota, Stumped On Minimum Wage (VIDEO)

Rep. Rick Berg (R-N.D.), who is running for the state’s open U.S. Senate seat, was 搬瓦工 caught off guard when approached by a voter who wanted to know the state’s minimum wage.

In the exchange, posted by the North Dakota Democratic Party, a young woman approaches Berg at a campaign event and asks him what the minimum wage is in the state.

“Hmmm,” Berg replies. He then points to someone standing nearby and says, “This guy would know.”

“I think it’s probably seven something,” he adds. “It depends — they don’t have a minimum wage for waitresses in North Dakota.”

They then ask someone else. That person says it’s the same as the federal minimum wage, and asks Berg, “You know what that is?”

“Oh! Put it back on my shoulders!” the congressman jokingly replies.

The minimum wage in North Dakota is $7.25 an hour, which is the same as the federal minimum wage.
