Also note the forum rules here (look up to the pink bar at the top of this page), no Cinnamon suggestions here! Take those to GitHub in the future. But in this case, I think it's an issue you should report on the blog.
To switch to 24 hour clock, right-click the clock applet and select "Configure". Click to use a custom date format and set the date format to "%H:%M". Or if you want to include the day, month, and date like on previous Linux Mint Cinnamon releases, set the date format to "%a %b %e, %H:%M".

FOR THE MOST PART, the veteran is going to know how to fix it anyways.
As an intermediate user, I don't mind having to fix it, I'll spend a minute of my time fixing it, while I'll be happy making the average joe happy and giving them less of a complaint about linux.
So just let it go, people that like the 12 hr format are most likely beginners, I keep saying most likely because I know there will be exeptions.

Some countries use 12 hour time notation and 24 hour time notation interchangeably, mostly English speaking countries that are former colonies of the UK (USA, India, Australia, etc.). The rest of the world uses 24 hour time notation. I'm happy to be called an expert instead of a noob based on the country I live in, but I think that's a bit unfair

Doesn't the new cinnamon make up for it?

I am allowed being able to tweak it any way as I please, adding hyphens, dashes, any text I want, and even the seconds. I honestly don't remember being able to do that when I had Windows.
