Monday at the New School in New York City, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said as president, she will stop the “mean-spirited” Republican “misguided attacks” on unions, which she argued have helped to increase income inequality.
Hillary said, “It is time to stand up to efforts across our country to undermine worker bargaining power. This has been proven again and again to drive up wages. Republican governors like Scott Walker have made their names stomping on workers rights and practically all Republican candidates would do the same as president. I will fight back against these mean-spirited misguided attacks. Evidence shows that the decline of unions may be responsible for a third of the increase of inequality men. among men. So if we want to get serious about raising income we have to get serious about supporting union workers.”
