Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo, who is the governor of New York, met at the Jacob K. Convention Center on April 4, 2016 to celebrate the passing of the $15 minimum wage. Fast food workers and other people who make minimum wage have been pushing for a wage increase for years. Many people have stated that a $15 minimum wage will never happen, but they were wrong.
Hillary Clinton is the only prominent democrat who did not endorse the minimum wage increase. Bernie Sanders was out marching with the people. He is also the one who pushed other democrats to adopt the $15 wage increase. However, Hillary is the one who is celebrating the victory, and many people have a problem with that.
Many people believe that Hillary is betraying the United States workers by celebrating the wage increase. She was not out fighting for the wage increase like Bernie was. The Fight for 15 is considered one of the greatest victories for progressives in recent years.
Many people are happy that they will now have an easier time making ends meet because of the wage increase. The minimum wage is only $15 in California and New York, but people are hoping that other states will adopt this wage increase.
