Is there a compromise to be had on the $15/hr miniumum wage?

Is there a compromise that can be done to mollify the Bernie and AOC crowd on the minimum wage or is it an all or nothing proposition?

I think about people making $8/hr that could use a raise yesterday. Sure, maybe not $15.00, but going from $8 to $12 is a huge deal, at least where I live. I understand if you live in San Francisco, it's peanuts, but in most places a $4 or $5 raise per hour is a BFD. I'm of the opinion is that something is better than nothing. Folks making $8.50/hr know that standing on your principles isn't going to pay the bills.

Is there something that can be done to push this through or do we just wait until the next election, and then the election after that, and after that like we have been doing for the past 15 years?
