In an op-ed in The New York Times, Hillary Clinton gives us a detailed look at her plan to combat poverty in America. From the creation of more affordable housing by the use of Low-Income Tax credits to increase the supply of cheaper housing, to raising the minimum wage and finally guaranteeing women equal pay for equal work.
In her own words,
As president, I will continue my life’s work focused on creating opportunities for children and fairness for families. We need to expand access to high-quality child care and guarantee paid leave so parents at all income levels can balance their jobs and lives. And we will work to double investments in Early Head Start and make preschool available to every 4-year-old because our children deserve the best possible start in life.
