Hillary to $15 Minimum Wage Activists: 'We need you'

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Sunday called a convention in Detroit to express her support for raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

“All of you should not have to march in the streets to get a living wage but thank you for marching in the streets to get that living wage,” Clinton said, according to WaPo.

“We need you out there leading the fight against those who would rip away Americans’ right to organize, to collective bargaining, to fair pay,” she told listeners assembled at the Service Employees International Union’s (SEIU) second annual “Fight for $15” convention, the newspaper added.

Unions, btw after camping for minimum wage hikes have sought to get exemptions from the laws.
