Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Freebeacon.com: “Georgia State Lawmaker Doesn't Know States Can Set Own Minimum Wage - Washington Free Beacon”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Democratic Georgia state legislator tweeted that she did not know that state laws determine minimum wage requirements across the country. 

"How does that even work?!" Georgia state Rep. Dar'shun Kendrick tweeted Thursday night after President Donald Trump said he prefers to leave minimum wage laws to individual states.

Twenty-nine states, as well as four territories and Washington, D.C., have already implemented minimum wages higher than the federally-mandated $7.25 per hour. Georgia is one of 19 states that have not yet raised their hourly minimum pay. After Democratic nominee Joe Biden said he'd raise the federal minimum wage to $15, a policy many on the far left have supported for years, Trump said states should determine their own minimum wage. 

While live-tweeting the debate last night, Kendrick also showed she did not know that the term "coyotes" refers to people who help illegal immigrants cross from Mexico to the United States.

Did @realDonaldTrump just say 545 kids they can't find their parents for came over through "cartels and coyotes"?! How the hell does a coyote bring a whole human across the border?! Lord—–stop talking. #FinalDebate
