CLINTON: I've always been familiar with poverty, and I've always done what I could to alleviate it and to help people. The rich are getting a whole lot richer, the middle is stagnating, and the poor are getting poorer. Now that is not good news for the American democracy. This country needs to give dignity to work, to make sure that women and men who work full-time earn a wage that lifts them out of poverty. Corporate executives have profited personally so much when the average worker in America have seen their wages and benefits basically stagnate. A new beginning that makes Wall Street shoulder its responsibility for this crisis. One that makes the most well-off among us pay our fair share. We all want an economy with more opportunity and less inequality. Where Wall Street can never wreck Main Street again. We need to make sure our economy works for everyone, not just those at the top. I'm Hillary Clinton, and I've always approved this message.
