Job growth, training focus of Clinton’s trip to S. Carolina

SANTEE, S.C. (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton is talking about the importance of job training during a visit to South Carolina this week.

The Democratic presidential contender is meeting Wednesday with community leaders in the Orangeburg area. Later in the day, she is scheduled to host a forum at Trident Technical College.

Since announcing her candidacy, Clinton’s campaign has held more than a hundred grassroots events and several dozen phone banks in South Carolina.

Last month, Clinton told more than 200 members of the South Carolina Democratic Women’s Council that pay equity between men and women, more generous parental leave policies and a higher minimum wage are not issues of importance merely to women but concerns that go to the heart of why it’s hard to get ahead and stay ahead in America.
