CONCORD – When Hillary Clinton returns to New Hampshire Thursday, she’ll be pushing a proposal she unveils Monday to boost middle class wages.
According to a Clinton campaign official, the former secretary of state and front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination will use major economic address Monday at the New School in New York City to urge companies to expand profit-sharing with their employees and to propose a change in the tax code to encourage businesses to do so.
The official says that proposal is part of a speech that Clinton will use to outline how middle class incomes can rise, allowing the country to start to “grow together.”
“Hard-working Americans deserve to benefit from the record corporate earnings they helped produce,” Clinton will say Monday, according to excerpts of her speech released by her campaign. “So I will propose ways to encourage companies to share profits with their employees.”
“That will be good for workers and good for business. Studies show profit-sharing that gives everyone a stake in a company’s success can boost productivity and put money directly into employees pockets. It’s a win-win,” she’ll add.
Clinton’s campaign says they’ll release more details on the Thursday visit to New Hampshire. The trip will be fifth to the first-in-the-nation primary state since she launched her second campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in April. She was last in the state on July 4.
