During the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton and the DNC were pushing for an increase to the minimum wage from $7.25 to $15 per hour. Problem: they didn’t practice what they preached.
Former DNC staffers are now suing the DNC in a class action lawsuit to pay them minimum wage and overtime pay.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
“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.’
The Democratic Party, Swidler noted, claimed it did not have enough money to pay workers overtime.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time liberals haven’t been able to live up to their own vows for ‘justice.’
Recently, it was revealed that Senator Elizabeth Warren was paying her female staffers less than her male staffers.
Still no word from the Mainstream Media on whether they will call out liberals on their hypocrisy.
