Hillary Clinton

Despite Sanders' solid pro-union reputation, Clinton has pulled in the bigger union endorsements, including the nation's largest unions for teachers and federal workers.

Higher minimum wage

Clinton favors a $12 an hour minimum wage. That’s an increase from the $7.25 national rate that began in 2009 but not as high as the $15 wage supported by her Democratic rivals.
