ANN ARBOR, Mich. (April 2, 2014) — President Barack Obama spoke at the University of Michigan Wednesday about the need to increase the minimum wage.

“In America we do not believe in opportunity just for the few. We believe everyone has the chance for success,” he told the packed house at the Intramural Sports Building.

The President also mentioned that more than 100 years ago, Henry Ford doubled his workers’ wage so they could afford to buy the cars they were making. ┬áHe also touched on other topics, from student loan debt to the Affordable Care Act.

“It’s like Groundhog’s Day, but it’s not funny,” he said about constant attempts to repeal the health care law.

  • Yup

    As a tax payer I think yup go to university that kids go to that want to be better than others and talk min wage does Obama think we are that stupid. Communist force for medical coverage and then talk min wage increase sure it looks good and sounds good but average employer can only afford you for 28 hours now thanks to Obama. I'm sad I vote.
