Carly Fiorina on the Minimum Wage

Fiorina believes that the minimum wage should be a state decision, rather than a federal one, because wage needs vary according to location. She also worries that setting a minimum wage too high robs young people of the opportunity to gain valuable work experience.

(02:30 – 03:43)
“So first, I believe that minimum wage should be a state decision, not a federal decision. Why? Because it makes no sense to say that the minimum wage in New York City is the same as the minimum wage in Mason City, Iowa. That makes no sense. Secondly, we have to remember that a lot of minimum wage jobs are jobs where people start. And in those jobs they learn skills to move forward. So we need to be honest about the consequences of raising a minimum wage too high; one of the consequences is that young people who are trapped in poor neighborhoods will have less opportunity to learn skills and move forward. You know, I started out as a secretary in a nine-person real estate firm. My husband Frank started out as a tow truck driver in a family-owned auto body shop. And I tell young people all the time: Don't worry about getting the perfect job. Just get a job. Any job. Because in every job, you will learn things.”
