Hillary: Corporations And Businesses Don’t Create Jobs

Derek Hunter Contributor

Hillary Clinton wants you to know she voted to raise the minimum wage, and she thinks that’s a good thing. She said that created “millions of jobs” in a speech she gave to a Democratic rally in Massachusetts Friday.

She then went on to, curiously, say, “Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs. You know, that old theory ‘trickle-down economics.’ That has been tried, that has failed, it has failed rather spectacularly.”

Then Senator Hillary Clinton voted in favor of a minimum wage hike in 2007, under President George W. Bush. In 2008, the housing market collapsed and the nation went into recession.

Clinton didn’t elaborate on when those jobs created by her vote to raise the minimum wage occurred.
