It was a good thing letting them unionize but it turns out Bernie had his field workers working 60 hours a week which makes them earn less than 15 dollars an hour and they were doing that for months!

Bernie, you can’t be half pregnant. If you are going to advocate for fair wages and fair work hours and let them unionize YOU HAVE TO GO ALL THEY WAY….YOU HAVE TO FIRST DO IT YOURSELF!!!!! Or you look like the biggest hypocrite on the planet

That’s f____ed up Bernie. Someone in your organization needs to be fired!

Here you are running around the country lambasting corporations for not paying at least 15 dollars an hour and you aren’t doing that yourself!

People are mocking you, Bernie, this looks horrible!!! GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT! You have to now or you might be finished as a candidate.

Someone within the union ratted Bernie out and leaked this to the press.

This is the third thread on scrooge Bernie. A lot of ATS members must be stunned by what Bernie did.

Quoted for truth.

Nothing can redeem him after that show of spineless character, to have the nomination so obviously stolen from you in a corrupt manner and then role over and pledge your support for that same person.

Defiantly not a quality I look for in a leader.

Under the terms of the contract, field organizers, who are typically in their 20s, earn $36,000 a year with free “platinum” health insurance coverage, 20 days of paid time off a year and 30 days’ severance pay in the event of layoffs. The workers claimed, however, that their long work hours, often 60 hours a week, effectively keep their compensation below $15 an hour, according to the Post, which noted the gap between those working conditions and Sanders’ leading role in the movement for a $15 federal minimum wage. The article chronicled these workers’ internal efforts to pressure management into improving the contract, including a reported attempt to bombard campaign manager Faiz Shakir with complaints on the workplace chat application, Slack.



Bernie has to quickly clean this up.

No. This is "The Bern" pt 2
He is just waiting for someone to buy him out this time...

From a once upon a time Sanders supporter

Guess you missed the part when he sold out in 16?

He wants burger flippers to make $15 an hour, but his campaign workers get less. I would say their compensation should be closer to $20.

Even if he does because of the pressure, could he be trusted? It would clearly be done for political reasons to get elected and not because he thought it was right.

The OP is spot on, this is a huge and serious blunder for the Sanders campaign.

As the opposition, this is glorious as it is all optics.

Hey Sanders! Preach $15 an hour yet can't pay your own staff???

NOT good optics AT ALL.

Next up is Kamala and her too lenient sentence to a scumbag.

He actually fought against paying them $15 an hour. So it is more than simple oversight.

The workers were offered a raise but they would have lost healthcare benefits so they declined the raise.

Because that is not a raise. They are fulltime employees, how would they not be eligible for healthcare?

As we've said all along. Socialist politicians want you to pay your fair share, hand out livable wages and costly benefits, and not expect them to do the same. Anything Bernie does now is political appeasement after this came out, because if he truly believed, or wasn't greedy, this would be a non-issue as they'd already be paid what he preaches.

So bernie not only didn't give them 15 minimum wage but he also didnt give them free healthcare. I guess his employees will also have to pay for their education?

Thats a bad socialist.

Looks like he berned his employees.

Bernie showed himself for the POS he was when he endorsed hillary as she was everything he was supposedly fighting against . He needs to go to his lake home and stfu.

Don't like Bernie but this is ridiculous. Volunteering is a part of working for every campaign so strike up any difference as a contribution to the campaign.

Bernie needs to pay off all of his worker's student loans too.
Also pay his black staffers reparations.

Ahhh no, it's not. These are workers, not volunteers.
