After recently saying the thought of raising the minimum wage made him “cringe,” Rick Scott has doubled down on his complete dismissal of helping over 1,700,000 hard-working Floridians earn a living wage.
Last night WINK news reported: “Earlier this year the idea of raising the minimum wage made him quote ‘cringe,’ and his campaign reelection manager says that it won’t be an issue come this fall.”
“Once again, Rick Scott just can’t seem to care less about helping Florida’s working families,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesman Max Steele. “Rick Scott is sorely mistaken if he thinks raising the minimum wage won’t be an issue in this election — because the people of Florida deserve a raise. There’s no doubt the thought of paying Floridians a fair wage makes Rick Scott cringe, and he keeps proving that he could not be more out of touch with everyday Floridians.”
