Clinton Attends Fight For $15 Meeting, Dodges On $15 Minimum Wage
Hillary Clinton attended a meeting of health care workers yesterday in Los Angeles in which attendees “plead” with Clinton to raise wages:
[H]ome health-care workers from across the country told Clinton what a pay bump would mean to their kids, their families and their dignity. At times, they got emotional.
But instead of engaging in a conversation about the $15 minimum wage, Clinton was vague and took no questions from the press:
But Clinton did not endorse a $15 wage on Thursday and provided few specifics on where she would go on wages. After the event, Clinton took a few pictures — including one with people wearing “Fight for $15” T-shirts — but did not take questions from the media.
This marks the latest dodge in a long series of evasive answers Clinton has given regarding the $15 minimum wage. Clinton has refused to endorse a national $15 minimum wage, but supported a $15 minimum wage in New York state for fast food workers only (including in rural parts of the state).
