Liberal Group Pushing $15 Min. Wage Only Paying Employes $12 an Hour

Here is the most perfect example of liberal hypocrisy: a group pushing a $15 an hour minimum wage law is only paying its own employees only $12 an hour.

To be a liberal means you have to be a liar, a cheater, and a hypocrite and the folks at[1] found a perfect example of this little truth of life.

A simple Facebook comment exploded into a big reveal on the hypocrisy of some groups spearheading the fight for a $15 minimum wage.

“It was a paid advertisement that came through on social media,” Cody McLaughlin told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “I thought it was funny so I posted a comment.”

The advertisement was for a job opening at the advocacy group Working America. The group was looking to hire field managers to launch a grassroots effort to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. For his own amusement, McLaughlin asking if it paid $15 an hour.

“Hi Cody! Our field organizing positions start at $12.25 per hour,” Working America replied. The group did note though, “After 90 days of employment the pay increases to $15 per hour.”

There you have it. Liberal hypocrisy at its best… or worst as the case may be.
