Donald Trump Reverses Stance On Raising Minimum Wage

Another flip flop stance on minimum wage. Memo to the Donald: The issue is raising the federal minimum wage not the state minimum wages..

TPM:

“I am looking at it, and I haven’t decided in terms of numbers. But I think people have to get more,” Trump said on ABC News’ “This Week.”

Trump has said that the wages were too high in the country, notably at a debate in November. Trump told ABC host George that it was a different opinion than previously expressed.

“Sure, it’s a change. I’m allowed to change,” he said. “But my real minimum wage is going to be — I’m going to bring companies back into this country, and they’re going to make a lot more than the $15 even.”

Trump acknowledged on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” that he wanted to just have the states decide.

“And I don’t know how people make it on $7.25 an hour. Now, with that being said, I would like to see an increase of some magnitude,” Trump said. “But I’d rather leave it to the states. Let the states decide.”
