Democrats Push for $15 Minimum Wage, But Pay their Staff Much Less

Such hypocrites… the Dems, led by fearless Marxist leader Schumer, are pushing for a $15 an hour federal minimum wage. I can’t think of one Democrat who pays their staffers that well. In fact, there has been instance after instance of Democrats stiffing their employees entirely or paying them the very minimum they can get away with. What a bunch of lying trolls.

The Democrats are rolling out their “Better Deal” platform that sounds more like a pizza offer than an economic plan. It’s a joke. They announced it Monday as a way to win over blue collar workers. They think they are just that dumb. The left is trying to target working America and pit them against corporations. It’s a typical communist ploy. Stir up the working class and hate the rich. It’s the same old uninspired and unoriginal crap in a new pizza wrapper.

From The Daily Caller:

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.

However, the same party pushing the dubious $15 minimum wage chose not to implement the policy itself during the 2016 election.

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. Swidler did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

The Democrats were pushing the Fight for $15! nonsense during the last presidential election in 2016. But they didn’t do what they were preaching. Not even close. They have been sued by their own field workers… 40 at last count and growing. Thees workers also sued the six state party organizations and stated in the law suit they were not fairly compensated for their work. Awkward. Their attorney described their treatment as ‘obscene’. Gee, who’s the ‘mean-er’ party now, Schumer? Hmmm?

Oh, and it get’s worse. The DNC gave their executive director a $300,000 bonus after the election. What the hell for? You lost, you idiots. The least you could do is pay your workers, who you worked to death by the way, a little bit better. Your leaders failed you, they don’t deserve rewards for losing. Duh.

The Dems know that the $15 an hour minimum wage actually hurts workers. They don’t care. They also know that it will break businesses and is not sustainable. Again, they are only looking for cheap votes, not to help American workers. A Heritage Foundation study found that if the Democrats take the $15 minimum wage policy nationwide, it would eliminate 7 million jobs.

And here comes Elizabeth Warren – the highly touted economic genius on the left:

“Americans know this economy is rigged, rigged in favor of billionaires and giant corporations and rigged against everyone else. It’s not hard to see how this happened. In industry after industry, a handful of corporations have seized power in this country.”

She evidently flunked Econ 101 and she’s a moron. This is more red meat to voters to swindle them into voting Democrat. I think Americans have had enough of this crap. The hypocritical left can take a hike right off the cliff they tried to push us over.
