Trump on the Minimum Wage

Trump has made solidly conservative statements concerning the minimum wage in the past, viewing it primarily as a point of competition between United States businesses and those of other countries.

“We can't have a situation where our labor is so much more expensive than other countries' that we can no longer compete.”


As with so many other issues, Trump has spoken in an inflammatory manner on minimum wage, as well.

“Having a low minimum wage is not a bad thing for this country.”

However, Trump has promised that if he is elected president, he will keep the minimum wage “pretty much where it is now”, rather than favoring any cuts. He also dismisses it as a non-issue, because he says he plans to bring well-paying jobs to the US.

“I'm going to bring jobs back – you will even be surprised, you will be very surprised. So that we won't even have to be talking about the minimum wage.”

Clinton on the Minimum Wage

Clinton supports raising the minimum wage, and has specifically called out the tipped minimum wage as “deeply unfair”:

“In some parts of our country are jobs, like hairdressers or waitresses, where the minimum wage is $2.13 an hour. Because it is assumed they're gonna make all this money on tips. There is a deep unfairness about that. And we need to make sure the minimum wage is raised so that working women and men have a chance not only to increase their income, but that means more consumers for New York businesses.”




She has voiced her support for the “Fight For $15” campaign that advocates raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour:

“Every American deserves a fair shot at success. Fast food & child care workers shouldn't have to march in streets for living wages.” (tweet)

In addition to general support, she has specifically come out in favor of New York's proposed $15 minimum wage:

“I agree with New York's proposal this week to raise wages for fast food workers to $15 an hour. The national minimum wage is a floor, and it needs to be raised.”
