Sanders: Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 Will Create Jobs

‘When we put money into the hands of working people, they’re going to go out and buy goods, they’re going to buy services and they’re going to create jobs in doing that.’

BERNIE SANDERS: "This is what many economists believe that one of the reasons that real unemployment in this country is 10%, one of the reasons that African American youth unemployment and underemployment is 51% is the average workener America doesn’t have any disposable income. You have no disposable income when you are make 10, 12 bucks an hour. When we put money into the hands of working people, they’re going to go out and buy goods, they’re going to buy services and they’re going to create jobs in doing that. That is the kind of economy I believe, put money in the hands of working people, raise the minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour."
