Matt Bevin Refuses To Endorse Minimum Wage Increase

Ronald McDonald and Matt Bevin Disagree
FRANKFORT, KY — On the Terry Meiners show last night, Matt Bevin once again refused to endorse an increase in Kentucky's minimum wage, citing McDonalds to defend his position. The problem with Bevin's story: McDonalds has announced they are raising their minimum wage.
Previously, Bevin stated Kentucky does not need higher paying jobs and that he is "absolutely, adamantly" opposed to raising the minimum wage.
"Matt Bevin is proving why Republicans labelled him an 'East Coast Con Man' and a 'Pathological Liar,' because even Ronald McDonald disagrees with Bevin's refusal to endorse a minimum wage increase for Kentucky's hardworking families," said David Bergstein of the Kentucky Democratic Party. "While 'Bailout Bevin' enriched himself with a $100,000 taxpayer funded handout, he's against ideas that would put more money in the pockets of Kentucky's middle class."
