Well well well, it appears that reality just KICKED Democrats in the ARSE big time. This is when hindsight hurts the most! The Democratic Party is being SUED by several of their own field workers. Why? Well they were not being paid overtime, nor were they earning substandard wages. Do you see the irony in this? This is the party that is pushing the whole ‘Fight for 15’ crap idea, and claiming they want minimum wage to be increased to $15 per hour. Yet, in the shadows of their reality, they aren’t even paying the lesser amount that is supposed to be given now!!!
It looks like Bernie Sanders paid his guys $12 an hour, but by the time overtime was counted, Dem workers averaged out to be making FAR below the minimum wage. You probably already know, they have an excuse ready for this one. In short, they are claiming that they couldn’t afford to pay their people.
WELL I’LL BE DARNED! They could afford to pay their Muslim IT guys all with terrorist connections, but they couldn’t afford to pay their own people because there wasn’t enough money? Classic Dem move…dumb dumb dumb. This seems to be quite an endemic with Democrats right? Elizabeth Warren pays her female staffers 71% of what her male staffers make. Both the wicked witches of the Democratic party, Warren and Pelosi underpay their staff all together and hypocritically run their loud mouths against Republicans for not pushing a nationwide minimum wage increase. Apparently, if you work in DC and you put in your overtime, you will have to SUE in order to get paid for it.
From The Washington Free Beacon:
Dozens of field workers have filed a class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, claiming the party that is pushing employers to pay a $15 minimum wage and more in overtime failed to pay overtime and minimum wages to its own employees.
Justin Swidler, the attorney representing the field workers, argued the Democratic Party failed to pay workers a minimum wage and denied them overtime compensation. Swidler “says the lawsuit seeks ‘fair pay for fair work,’ and holding the Democratic Party to the very ideals that it embraces,” according to CBS Philly.
The 2016 Democratic platform pushed for a $15-per-hour minimum wage, a nearly $8 increase from the current minimum, and promised to defend an Obama-era regulation forcing employers to pay a higher rate to employees for working more than 40 hours.
Some of the Democrats’ workers put in 80-90 hours per week, according to Swidler, and got only $3,000 per month in compensation. “They got paid a flat salary of $3,000 a month, which isn’t even minimum wage for some of the hours that they were working,” Swidler said.
The Dem platform decried the current federal minimum of $7.25 per house calling it a “starvation wage” and claiming that “no one who works full time should have to raise a family in poverty.” Well, according to Open Secrets, the Democrat Party has raised $372,182,925 since 2016, and turned around spending $368,480,666 of it leaving $11,788,858 on hand.
So here’s the question of the day, where did all that money go if not to their workers?
“These workers were out there in a campaign that was promising $15 an hour minimum wage, and expanding the overtime rights of workers.” Swidler said.
However, they didn’t get paid for their work. Now the lawsuit named several Democratic party organizations, that include the Pennsylvania Democratic Party and the DNC. There will be more names added to this pot of deceit too I’m sure. This folks, is going to be a MASSIVE lawsuit.
HYPOCRITES! This is going to hurt them…
