Sanders Campaign Press Release - New Sanders Ad on Big Speaking Fees for Politicians Who Won't Support a $15 Minimum Wage
NEW YORK – Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign on Friday released a new television ad focusing on how some politicians believe it's acceptable to take over $200,000 from Wall Street for an hour-long speech but don't support a $15 an hour minimum wage.
"Wall Street banks shower Washington politicians with campaign contributions and speaking fees," the narrator says as the ad opens. "And what do they get for it? A rigged economy, tax breaks and bailouts."
"$200,000 an hour for them, but not even 15 bucks an hour for all Americans. Enough is enough" the ad concludes.
