Hillary Clinton on the Minimum Wage

Clinton supports raising the minimum wage, and has specifically called out the tipped minimum wage as “deeply unfair”:

“In some parts of our country are jobs, like hairdressers or waitresses, where the minimum wage is $2.13 an hour. Because it is assumed they're gonna make all this money on tips. There is a deep unfairness about that. And we need to make sure the minimum wage is raised so that working women and men have a chance not only to increase their income, but that means more consumers for New York businesses.”




She has voiced her support for the “Fight For $15” campaign that advocates raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour:

“Every American deserves a fair shot at success. Fast food & child care workers shouldn't have to march in streets for living wages.” (tweet)

In addition to general support, she has specifically come out in favor of New York's proposed $15 minimum wage:

“I agree with New York's proposal this week to raise wages for fast food workers to $15 an hour. The national minimum wage is a floor, and it needs to be raised.”
