This Group Took A 50 Percent Pay Cut

Looks like somebody might want to unionize!

Where is union boss Trumpka, when ISIS needs him?!

It must be a tough economy out there, when raping and pillaging is on the downturn. Perhaps ISIS needs ObamaCare to help turn things around?


Yes, the news is bad for aspiring jihadis, as according to The Week, ISIS is being forced to take a 50 percent pay cut:

The Islamic State has reportedly cut all of its fighters’ salaries by 50 percent, CNN reports based on leaked documents obtained by a scholar who tracks the terrorist group.

“On account of the exceptional circumstances the Islamic State is facing, it has been decided to reduce the salaries that are paid to all mujahideen [jihadists] by half, and it is not allowed for anyone to be exempted from this decision, whatever his position,” read a translated excerpt from the purported ISIS memo posted by Aymenn Jawad al-Tamimi, who researches and writes about ISIS extensively at the Middle East Forum.

How much did the group’s soldiers make, anyway? Between $400 and $600, plus extra stipends for fighters with wives and children, according to an April 2015 report from the Congressional Research Service. Julie Kliegman

Do you find it interesting that somebody studied what ISIS gets paid?!

One has to wonder if the fringe benefits were hit as well? Has ISIS cut back on sex slaves? How many beheadings are allowed per fighter?

As you can see, many questions still remain.
