CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - "It's tough," Kimberly Blanks explained how life was surviving on just $6.50 per hour worked. Blanks continued, "$6.50 is absurd. Irrational for some, but reality for Kimberly Blanks. "As a full time student, especially, you cannot live off of minimum wage," she added.
Minimum wage requirements is just one of many issues former President Bill Clinton addressed to this crowd at University of Central Arkansas. Clinton said, "We need to reform the student loan program, we need to find a way to help people refinance those loans at lower interest rates, we need to give everybody a chance to pay it back as a percentage of their income."
