Biden Justice Department nominee Vanita Gupta has a stake in a business led by her father that pays workers in Mexico less than $2 an hour — despite her advocacy for a $15 an hour federal minimum wage in the U.S.
An Indeed job posting for Aptiv advertises a job that pays 5380 pesos a month, which breaks down to less than $1.50 an hour, the Washington Free Beacon first reported.

Meanwhile, Gupta testified in front of Congress in favor of raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour in 2019.
"Gradually raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, indexing it to median federal wages, and ensuring that all tipped workers, working people with disabilities, and young people get paid at least a full minimum wage is essential for working people to cover basic expenses like housing, food, transportation, childcare, health care, and other necessities," she said.
