‘When you look at the issues, young people agree we should raise minimum-wage, have equal pay for equal work, they agree we should make sure a family, when the child gets sick, you can stay home without losing your job — ‘

COLBERT: “Though I have to say a crowd of young people raising their hands to their charismatic leader is disturbing.”
(Applause) All right. Why, sir — and don’t give them any hints — why do you think the young people did not come out to vote?”
OBAMA: “I think they felt discouraged about what was happening in Washington.”
COLBERT: “Mm-hmm.”
OBAMA: “When you look at the issues, young people agree we should raise minimum-wage, have equal pay for equal work, they agree we should make sure a family, when the child gets sick, you can stay home without losing your job, they believe in making sure that college is affordable.”
