Inslee: ‘The CEO of McDonalds Makes 2,100 Times More than the People Slinging Hash at McDonalds’
INSLEE: "I think plans are great, but I’m a governor. And we got to realize the people who brought us the weekend unions are going to bring us a long overdue raise in America. And I’m proud of standing up for unions. I got a plan to reinvigorate collective bargaining so we can increase wages finally. I marched with the SEIU folks. It is not right that the CEO of McDonald’s makes 2,100 times more than the people slinging hash at McDonald’s. And the next thing I’ll do is put people to work in the jobs of the present and the future. Look it, Donald Trump is simply wrong. He says wind turbines cause cancer. We know they cause jobs. And we know that we can put millions of people to work in the clean energy jobs of the future. Carpenters, IBW members, machinists — we’re doing it in my state today. And then we can do what America always does: Lead the world and invent the future and put people to work. That’s what we’re going to do."
