Fox News announced on Friday that it has signed former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain on as a contributor.
“Cain’s impressive resume makes him a valuable addition to the Fox News and Fox Business lineup. As a political expert with business savvy, he brings an important voice to the nation’s debates,” Bill Shine, Fox News Channel executive vice president of programming, said in a statement.
“I’m excited about joining the FOX family as a contributor,” Cain was quoted as saying, “because it is an opportunity to be one more voice for intelligent thinking in America.”
Cain most recently appeared on Fox News to discuss President Obama’s proposed minimum wage increase.
Cain told Fox News host Neil Cavuto’s that Obama’s recent minimum wage increase were ridiculous because it wouldn’t help minimum wage workers out of poverty.
“If you were to force a minimum wage increase from $7.25 to $9.00, guess what, they’ll still be living in poverty,” Cain said.
