Is she paying minimum wage?

The Billary campaign is trying a tactic to help improve Iowa turnout; providing babysitters.


"I really want to see Hillary Clinton elected, but I'm too young to caucus, so I'll baby-sit for someone else so they can," said Molly McGuire, a 14-year-old from Des Moines.

She'll watch a 2-year-old and a 6-month-old, free of charge.

Free of charge?

She should be paid a living wage with full benefits and health care. After all, people all over this country "volunteer" to work at a certain wage and benefit package in this country but the government finds no problem in forcing businesses to pay a certain wage.

I guess politicians hold themselves to the same standards as the Teamsters, who routinely pay people cash for picketing in front of strike sites.

If the 14 yr. old girls in this country will work for no pay for the Hildebeast, we are doomed. I cannot get my daughter to do squat for no pay.
