(Reuters) – Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced a new plan to give businesses two-year tax credits for sharing profits with workers at a New Hampshire campaign stop Thursday. Clinton detailed the first component of her economic platform aimed at raising middle-class incomes at a town hall meeting in Dover, citing local examples of businesses that share profits with employees. “If you treat somebody like they have a stake in your business, they’re going to stand up a little straighter, they’re going to work a little harder,” said Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic nomination ahead of the presidential election in November 2016.
