Little girl asks Hillary Clinton: When you’re president, will you get paid as much as a man?
At a campaign stop in Nevada on Tuesday, a little girl asked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a question about equal pay and the race to the White House.
As the candidate extended the microphone to her, the girl asked, “Do you think that when you’re president you’ll get paid as much as if you were a man?”
The crowd laughed and applauded before Clinton replied, “This is one of the jobs where they have to pay you the same. But there are so many examples where that doesn’t happen.”
She went on to pledge that “As president, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that not just the president gets paid the same — whether it’s a woman or a man — but every woman in every job gets paid the same as the men who are doing that job.”
