Thanks to Wikileaks, we now know more about Sec. Hillary Clinton's record on the minimum wage: $.62 per hour is too high.
While (lately) Clinton has been a vocal advocate of raising the minimum wage to $15, as Secretary of State, Clinton's representatives in the State Department worked with mega-corporations Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, and Levi's to "aggressively block" Haiti's efforts to raise their minimum wage from $.24 per hour to $.62 per hour.
She is now receiving flack from both the Right and the Left.
Liberal comedian Lee Camp said, "In 2009, while Bill Clinton was setting up one of the family's shell companies in New York, in that same year Hillary Clinton was at the State Department working with U.S. corporations to pressure Haiti not to raise the minimum wage to 61 cents an hour from 24 cents."
On the Right, Reason's Justin Monticello said, "So Hillary thinks that drastic wage hikes — even those that leave the hourly rate under a dollar — can have detrimental economic consequences, or she's at least willing to let her subordinates make such claims when convenient. But due to political expediency, her view changes when it comes to U.S. businesses and workers."
