The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is being sued by its field workers because they shortchanged them for working overtime and failing to increase the minimum wage.
Democrats yell and fuss because they want a mandatory minimum wage of $15 an hour nationwide but they won’t pay their workers that. Those same workers have chosen to take them to court with a class-action lawsuit.
“Do as I say but not as I do,” should be the new slogan for the DNC. It’s easy to tell these workers we told you so but let’s not do that. Let’s allow them to fight it out in court, so it continues to destroy their party.

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 Democratic platform decried the current federal minimum of $7.25 per hour as ” starvation wage” and declared “no one who works full time should have to raise a family in poverty.”
There’s nothing like this type of infighting which makes my day! These people don’t know which way is up or I’ll even add, they might not even know right from wrong. They will continue to work for the DNC because their indoctrination class tells them they won’t have it good anywhere else but there.
