Or demanding a $15 / hour minimum wage, but paying your campaign workers less than that.

This one really pisses me off.

Edit: I suppose the reasoning is that as long as the rules of the game are applied equally to everyone, it's not a competitive disadvantage to pay high wages. However if there is no minimum wage, you get a disadvantage relative to your competition by overpaying.

For interns. Last I heard they were getting $12 while interns on political campaigns normally don't get pay. And his plan is to work up to $15 by 2020, not immediately, so he's really not being inconsistent with his own beliefs on minimum wage.

Yeah, but other campaigns aren't saying they should be paid €15. The 2020 thing is to give businesses time to plant the money tree they'll need to find that money.
