After pandering to black voters last week, Hillary Clinton took to the podium to rally political support from fast food workers and labor unions.
Hillary Clinton told a conference of fast food workers Sunday that she supported their push for a $15 minimum wage, saying “I want to be your champion.”
Appearing by phone at a meeting of 1,300 workers, Clinton voiced her most emphatic support yet for the nationwide Fight for $15 movement, which is also seeking to unionize fast food giants like McDonald’s. Clinton also expressed broader support for organized labor and the right to bargain collectively.
“We need you out there fighting against those who would strip away Americans’ right to organize, to collectively bargain, to fair play,” Clinton told the crowd. “No man or woman who works hard to feed American families should have to be on food stamps to feed their own family.”
“All of you should not have to march in the streets to get a living wage, “ she added. “But thank you for marching….We need you out there.”
If President Obama is any indication, the promises that Democrats make on the campaign trail rarely come true. With her approval ratings dropping dangerously low, it’s clear that Hillary will do or say anything to get elected at this point.
