HIllary Endorses Organized Labor's "Fight for 15" Campaign

Not that this should surprise anyone . . . 

Though hardly a populist, Hillary apparently feels the ground quivering under her feet as socialist Bernie Sanders eats away at her low-wage worker support.  She now joins the "fight for $15" bandwagon.

From the Washington Post:

"In one of the most explicitly union-friendly speeches of her young presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton called in to a convention of low-wage workers Sunday morning to deliver a message of support and solidarity.

"All of you should not have to march in the streets to get a living wage, but thank you for marching in the streets to get that living wage," she said. "We need you out there leading the fight against those who would rip away Americans’ right to organize, to collective bargaining, to fair pay."
In other words, she wants Big Labor's support and is willing to write off small business to get it.
