Nuns, Faith and Politics

“I lobbied on minimum wage in California. And we ended up raising minimum wage. And what happened was the economy grew. Because the problem is if we believe in free market, then you shift money to get the economy going. You shift money to where there’s pent-up demand. Where is there pent-up demand right now? It’s at the bottom, not at the top.”

Sister Simone Campbell, on 26 Aug 2012 edition of Bill Moyers & Company
