Mitt Romney is reversing on the minimum wage.
After telling the Associated Press and NELP Action Fund that he supports automatically increasing the minimum wage to keep pace with inflation, conservatives from Rush Limbaugh to The Wall Street Journal editorial page grew outraged.
Now Romney is backpedaling, as a new video from the National Employment Law Project (NELP) Action Fund shows:
Romney yesterday on CNBC: “Well, actually, when I was governor the legislature passed a law raising the minimum wage. I vetoed it…There’s probably not a need to raise the minimum wage.”
