From our Bureau of Most Hilarious Socialist Moves of All Time
Can’t stop laughing about this one.
Full-time campaign staffers for Socialist Bernie Sanders were getting paid less than the $15 per hour that he himself is demanding for all American workers.
Even more embarrassing, said underpaid laborers were denied a pay raise and went public with this glaring bit of Socialist hypocrisy.
So,to avoid negative publicity after being shamed by his own serfs Bernie caved in and gave them a raise.
But at the same time he reduced the number of hours they could work per week.
Much, much, much too funny…. But, unfortunately, those useful idiots who vote for Bernie and those of his ilk will not only fail to see the humor but also continue to believe in their moronic socialist utopian nonsense.
From Hot Air:
In a statement provided to Newsweek, [campaign manager Faiz] Shakir said that the campaign has been in discussions about pay structure changes with the United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400, the union representing the organizers.
“We look forward to continuing those discussions and obviously are disappointed that some individuals decided to damage the integrity of these efforts before they were concluded,” Shakir said. “As these discussions continue, we are limiting hours so no employee is receiving less than $15 for any hours worked.”…
Shakir also told Newsweek that leadership at the campaign previously offered a pay increase for field organizers, but that the offer was rejected in a formal vote. According to the Post, Shakir offered organizer pay to be raised to $42,000 annually and extend the workweek to six days. The offer was reportedly rejected because it would have elevated staff to a pay level in which they’d be responsible to pay more of their own health care costs.
