Florida Sen. Marco Rubio admitted that people can’t live off jobs that pay only $10 or $11 per hour on Wednesday. But the Republican presidential hopeful opposes raising the minimum wage.
In his response to the State of the Union on Tuesday night, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) laid out his own vision, not a direct rebuttal of President Obama's proposals. But on CBS Wednesday morning he came out against Obama's push to raise the minimum wage to $9 an hour. "I support people making more than $9. I want people to make as much as they can. I don't think a minimum wage law works," Rubio told Charlie Rose.
