Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have battled over big banks many times, but one of the most contentious moments of last night’s debate came down to a few bucks—$3 to be exact—which is the difference in proposed figures for a federal minimum wage. Sanders accused Clinton of pushing for a bill that fell short at $12, while saying he staunchly advocates $15 for America’s new living wage.
