Fight for 15 - Waffling *Evolving* Hillary Clinton- What do the Polls Say? Bernie? she'll be Following

10 November 2015 at 9:21:58 AM

In Mid October, Hillary Clinton did not specify a number for minimum wage. Both Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley did- $15 per hour.

Sanders and O'Malley have thrown their support behind a national movement to set the floor at $15 an hour. This movement has galvanized workers both in and out of unions in cities across the country, and has already claimed victory in the Pacific cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.

While Clinton agrees the national minimum wage should be higher than it is now, she hasn't said to what specific level she thinks it should be raised. Earlier this year, she called into a conference of labor organizers who had gathered in Detroit to advocate for the $15 hourly minimum, but she didn't specifically endorse their goal, and she hasn't since then, either. She's spoken approvingly of legislation in Congress that would increase the minimum wage to $12 an hour nationwide, but whether she would support a minimum wage above that figure is an open question -- a question no one asked her during the debate.

and, MSNBC on November 3 2015. 

So this morning I saw THIS. Hillary Clinton is happy to have YOU fight for $15 minimum wage but she will not come out and unequivocably support it. If you happen to think she IS supporting you, well, then she's accomplished her goal of misleading you. 

From Politico

We’ll probably hear from Hillary and Bernie too. Clinton appeared at Fight for $15’s national convention in June, so expect her to praise or even join the workers at today’s rallies (even though she’s willing to go only to $12). Sanders — who along with O’Malley favors $15 — will join striking Capitol and Senate dining workers, and he’s expected to bring some Senate colleagues to the picket line with him. They’ll call on the striking workers’ employer, Restaurant Associates, to pay $15 an hour.
