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.
Hillary Clinton has literally never supported a $15 minimum wage, now she's standing in the spotlight like she risked her neck for it.— clarke (@radicalhearts) April 4, 2016
Hillary Clinton spoke loudly and clearly against raising the minimum wage to $15. We were listening then and are disgusted now. #NotHer15— NC Triad for Bernie (@prattlandia) April 4, 2016
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."
