Clinton to outline economic proposals in Ohio speech

Columbus, Oct 3 (IANS) US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will deliver an economic-themed address in Ohio on Monday, a media report said.

According to Clinton’s campaign officiaI, during her visits to Toledo and Akron she plans to condemn “in-it-for-yourself” corporations, targeting Wells Fargo, Mylan Pharmaceuticals and the Trump Organisation, the Politico reported.

She will also lay out two new proposals that promote “free and fair competition between corporations and address corporate abuse”.

The proposals, the official said, will curb the prevalence of fine-print “forced arbitration” clauses in contracts that prevent workers and consumers from bringing legal action against companies who have harmed them, and reinvigorate anti-trust laws and enforcement.

In addition, Clinton will highlight tools that will “take on bad corporate actors”. She will also discuss steps to raise the minimum wage and paid family leave.

“Clinton will call out companies like Wells Fargo, which took advantage of thousands of customers in an unfair and abusive scheme; Mylan Pharmaceuticals, which hiked up the price of life-saving EpiPens without justification; and the practices of Donald Trump and the Trump Organisation,” the official said.
