Babysitting does not classify as a "real job," Hillary Clinton said Thursday during a campaign rally.
The presumptive Democratic presidential candidate was addressing a crowd in Virginia about the wage gap between genders when she told a story of a teenage girl in Kansas.
"Just the other day, there was a story of a young 17-year-old girl who went to work in a pizza restaurant. She was really excited … because it was her first real job," Clinton said.
"I remember those days, when I had my first real job. Not just babysitting and things like that, but a real job."
The Washington Free Beacon posted a clip of the remarks on YouTube.
Before the babysitting comment, Clinton said the wage gap is "America's problem."
"There are some people, and I know, I know, there are some people who basically say, 'This is not a problem anymore,'" Clinton said. "Well, if you have a mother, wife, daughter, or sister who is not being paid equally, it's your problem. It's your family's problem. It's America's problem."
