Hillary Clinton Really Will Say Or Do Anything To Become President
This morning, Hillary Clinton tweeted out her “support” for the “Fight For $15” protests that are occurring across the nation today.
Fast-food, home care, child care workers: Your advocacy is changing our country for the better. #Fightfor15 -H

Her tweet is disingenuous at best.
Last week, after months of dodging, Clinton stated her support for a $12-an-hour federal minimum wage, not a $15-an-hour minimum wage, which is literally the entire point of the “Fight For $15” campaign.
“I favor a $12-an-hour minimum wage at the federal level, and the reason is that would be setting it at a level that would be equivalent to the point in our history where the minimum wage was at its highest, and in inflation-adjusted terms that was in 1968.”
Clinton’s backing of the “Fight For $15” movement is rooted in her desperate need for support from Unions like SEIU. It has been well documented that SEIU is simply using the “Fight For $15” movement to increase their dwindling numbers.
