One of the constants anyone can claim about the Democratic Party is that they are hypocrites with a capital H. they preach tolerance and yet are the most intolerant bunch of all. They push for equal pay for equal work and equal pay for women, but when it comes to practicing what they preach, well, that’s a different story.
The irony to this story is the Democratic National Committee is always pushing for equal pay for equal work and mandatory minimum wages and yada, yada, yada. Yet, Bernie Sanders supporters are now suing the DNC and former DNC Chair Debbie “I violate security policy, but it’s someone else’s fault for letting me do it” Wasserman Schultz in a class action lawsuit after the DNC gave our $1 million in bonuses, including more than $300,000 to Democratic National Convention Host Committee Executive Director Kevin Washo.
The Observer reports:
“The lawsuit was filed by Justin Swidler of Cherry Hill, N.J. on behalf of 40 to 50 field organizers against the DNC, Pennsylvania state Democrats, and five other state Democratic Parties. “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. He added the lawsuit seeks “fair pay for fair work” and to hold the Democratic Party accountable to the ideals it markets itself with.” …
Isn’t it interesting that the amounts of bonus payouts were determined by the person who got the largest payout of $300,000 and former Gov. Ed Rendell. Incidentally, Washo also receives a monthly salary of $13,000. That’s nearly triple what the average American household makes in a month and they don’t get any bonuses for doing their jobs.
