What is wrong with Linda McMahon’s handlers? They’re all getting rich and they can’t even brief her on the mimimum wage?
From CT News Junkie:
Pressed further on the issue, McMahon admitted she didn’t know what the current minimum wage is or if any of her employees at World Wrestling Entertainment are paid it.
Connecticut’s minimum wage is currently $8.25 an hour and the federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.
Asked if the minimum wage should be increased, McMahon said, “you know what guys I’m just not going to comment any more.”
McMahon’s Democratic opponent Richard Blumenthal’s campaign wasn’t surprised by her comments.
“Linda McMahon laid off ten percent of her workers and takes home $46 million a year so it’s no surprise she’s thinking about lowering the minimum wage,” Maura Downes spokeswoman for Blumenthal’s campaign said Thursday. “Connecticut’s families are hurting and Linda McMahon puts her own profits ahead of people of Connecticut. That’s not the kind of U.S. Senator the people of Connecticut need.”
