Trump Signals Willingness to Raise Minimum Wage

Wednesday, 04 May 2016 07:29 PM EDT

Donald Trump, the presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee, said on Wednesday he was "open to doing something" with the country's minimum wage, but added that any increase would have to be weighed against a potential loss of competitiveness.

"I'm open to doing something with it," Trump said in an interview with CNN, adding that he did not like the current $15 an hour level. "I mean you have to something that you can live on."

"But what I really do like is bring our jobs back, so they're making much more than the 15 dollars" an hour, he added.
