Jill Stein on the Minimum Wage

Stein supports having a $15.00 minimum wage.


We call for a Green New Deal like the New Deal that helped get us out of the Great Depression. We call for similar emergency measures right now. So it’s a new deal but with a green focus so that it solves two crises at once. Both the crisis of the economy which has not recovered for the vast majority of Americans, it’s still an economic emergency. And at the same time it will solve the climate emergency. And we call for 20 million good wage jobs beginning at $15.00 dollar an hour minimum wage. These jobs will focus on greening our energy system, our food system and public transportation as well as restoring critical infrastructure including ecosystems like the conservation core addressed back at the time of the New Deal. So this would achieve 100 percent wind, water and sun clean renewable energy by 2030. That is a massive undertaking. We compare this to the response to the bombing of Pearl Harbor where it took us six months to massively transform the economy from 0 up 25 percent of GDP in that war effort because we had a national emergency.”
