Clinton joins Gov. Cuomo to celebrate $15 minimum wage victory, but Sanders says she’s jumping on the bandwagon
Despite her cheerleading on behalf of low-income workers, Hillary Clinton has done minimal work on the minimum wage, her presidential rival’s camp said Monday.
Clinton joined Gov. Cuomo on Monday at a celebratory rally at the Javits Center as he signed a minimum-wage hike to $15 an hour in much of the state.
But her Democratic opponent, Bernie Sanders, said she was just jumping on the bandwagon.
As Clinton joined Cuomo’s wage hike celebration just two weeks before the state’s crucial primary election, a spokesman for Sanders chided her for not fully committing to a similar minimum wage for workers across the country.
