Alison Lundergan Grimes is campaigning on raising the minimum wage
The restaurant owned by her family pays tipped staffers minimum wage
Grimes to CNN: "My family is not in this race"
In her race to defeat Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, Alison Lundergan Grimes has barnstormed Kentucky, talking up her support for raising the minimum wage and criticizing the GOP’s so-called war on women.
But the restaurant owned by Grimes’ family doesn’t always practice what she preaches, and Kentucky Republicans have been happy to point that out.
On the campaign trail, Grimes said recently, “I’m fighting for all Kentuckians, all working Americans across this nation. I don’t believe $7.25 an hour raises a family of four above the poverty level.”
