Exposed: New EMBARRASSMENT for DNC
The Democrats think nothing through to the end.
They truly live their lives on, “If it feels good, do it!” Unfortunately that logic rarely works.
Take for example their attempt to tie Trump to Russia. It might have sounded good at the time, however now the and forever more the Democrats will be trying to get those stains off the sheets.
Another area of Leftists nonsense is with minimum wage.
Trending: Another Media Giant Bows to Leftism
A report published by the Daily Caller revealed how during the 2016 election cycle fell little short of the “livable wage”, when it came to paying their own staffers.
The Democratic Party is pushing for a federal $15 minimum wage as part of its recently revealed “Better Deal” economic platform, despite paying its own field organizers significantly less than that during the 2016 election cycle.
The new platform, announced Monday at a press conference in Berryville, Va., aims to ingratiate the Democratic Party with blue collar voters through populist economic messaging focused on prioritizing the interests of workers over those of corporate interests.
Let’s all turn to Page 3 of the Democrat Playbook…”Tell them what they want to hear.” Also, I chronicle this Democrat tactic in my book Race Pimping: the multi-trillion dollar business of Liberalism.
The Democrats don’t really care what the magic minimum wage number is. $15, $22.17, $50. Those are just as good.
But, they do care about the number that will convince the minions to vote for them.
A group of roughly 40 field workers filed a class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and six state party organizations in May, alleging that they were not fairly compensated for their work during the 2016 campaign. The field organizers claim to have been paid $3,000 per month while consistently working 80 to 90 hours per week.
Justin Swidler, the attorney representing the workers, described their treatment as “obscene.” “These workers were out there in a campaign that was promising $15 an hour minimum wage, and expanding the overtime rights of workers,” Swidler told CBS News.”
The party of the poor certainly has its share of multi-millionaires. The question Democrats should ask their leaders is why are they so freaking WEALTHY!
As The Daily Caller article suggests, perhaps its because they keep paying themselves regardless of results:
“The DNC’s decision to give the executive director a $300,000 bonus after the failed election cycle exacerbated workers’ complaints, as their wages were left well short of $15 per hour.”
Under Obama, the rich didn’t just get richer, they got super richer. And of course, the poor got poorer.
But the middle-class? They got screwed like a jihadi sex slave.
And that’s what will happen to all of America if these clowns actually vote in a $31,000 salary for everybody who works. Aside from creating massive unemployment, as businesses scale back to bare bones, the Democrats will get rid of the “farm league”. Youngster will find practically no employment. And we already see businesses that require menial labor looking into automation.
But the real impact comes to those on fixed incomes. The elderly on social security and poor families will find their ability to buy cut in half, immediately.
Thus, as Democrats claim to “help” those who need it the most, they actually punish the entire country. Think of $15 minimum wage as “Obamacare” for jobs. It looks good on paper, but it’s just another disaster in the making.
