Hillary Clinton "Steals The Bern" Over New York's $15 Minimum Wage Law

Many find it hard to believe that Hillary Clinton is celebrating New York's minimum wage hike.

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton joined New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Manhattan for a rally celebrating the raising of the state's minimum wage to $15 an hour.

"It's a result of what is best about New York and what is best about America. And I know that it's going to sweep our country," she said.

Many feel Clinton, who has so far endorsed a minimum wage of $12, is jumping the bandwagon after the $15 raise.




Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, made income inequality a major focal point of his election campaign, and promised “to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour and provide paid family leave to every worker in America."
