Wallace To Christie: ‘Should You Be So Cavalier’ About Minimum Wage?
[su_right_ad]In response to Chris Christie saying he’s tired of hearing about the minimum wage, Chris Wallace asked him if the issue warranted him to be so cavalier.
“Not being cavalier at all,” Christie replied. “I’m saying it exactly as I see it. What we need to do in this country is not have debate over a higher minimum wage. We have to have a debate over creating better-paying middle class jobs in the country. If that somehow doesn’t comport with what people in the political elite want, well, I’m sorry…
“There’s just not income inequality in this country,” Christie said. “The bigger problem is opportunity inequality. And that’s what mothers and fathers are sitting around kitchen tables talking about wanting for their children’s future. And that’s exactly what I was saying at the Chamber of Commerce. And I don’t back off from those comments one inch.”
