Clinton to make boosting wages central to her economic plan

Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to make boosting middle class income and wages the focus of her economic agenda. The Democratic presidential candidate will point to stagnant paychecks as the central challenge facing the U.S. economy.
    
Clinton will lay out the themes of her economic plan in a speech Monday in New York. Clinton's campaign says in a preview on Saturday that the speech will emphasize the need for the real incomes of everyday Americans to rise steadily along with corporate profits and executive compensation.
    
While Republican candidate Jeb Bush has called for an annual growth rate of 4 percent, Clinton will say that the nation's economy should not be judged by a specific growth figure but rather by how much income rises for middle-class households.
