White House praises new Facebook minimum wage policy for contractors

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Wednesday praised Facebook’s new minimum wage and family leave policy, which raises minimum hourly salaries for contractors to $15 per hour.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the Tuesday announcement from the social media company is an example of the kind of leadership on such issues now seen with more frequency from the public sector.
