ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said on Monday (October 12) that the creation of jobs in the country would not be as beneficial unless those jobs came with a much higher minimum wage. "We have just got to recognize that that minimum wage is totally inadequate," Sanders told an audience at No Labels Problem Solver Convention in New Hampshire, referring to the current $7.25 minimum wage. "We've got to raise that minimum wage to a living wage." The Vermont senator said people who working two or three jobs should not be living in poverty.
