U.S. firms' thirst for quick profits hurts workers, Clinton will say

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton addresses the U.S. Conference of Mayors Annual Meeting in San FranciscoBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) – Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will argue in a speech on Monday that U.S. businesses are too fixated on short-term profits, especially on Wall Street, and she will pledge to help workers get better pay and more family-friendly workplaces. Clinton, the favorite to win the Democratic Party’s nomination for the November 2016 election, intends the speech to outline the economic theory underpinning her campaign, in which she has promised to be a champion for “everyday Americans.” Her nearest rival for the nomination, the socialist Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, has drawn large crowds and has been steadily narrowing Clinton’s lead in polls by staking out positions that reflect the leftward shift of their party’s base.
