A former campaign employee from the 2020 presidential bid of Sen. Bernie Sander filed a labor complaint this week, alleging that some employees faced retaliation for involvement in organizing for a collective bargaining agreement.

The employee, who has not been publicly identified, filed the complaint with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Tuesday, according to a redacted copy of the charge obtained by Bloomberg Law.

The complaint alleges that Sanders’ campaign made unionized employees work additional days without commensurate days off, thus violating the terms of their collective bargaining agreement.

Campaign management "retaliated against me when I organized the bargaining unit and sent an email requesting compliance with the [collective bargaining agreement],” the individual wrote in the charge.

Irony is just so ironic, huh? If true, what a hypocrite. Am I surprised, heck no. Bernie Sanders, a man that owns multiple houses, and until only recently paid his employees below the $15 minimum wage he has campaigned upon, now is being charged with labor violations by former employees.

It's typical of these socialist politicians, advocate spending and sharing everyone else's hard earned money, but not theirs.

That picture of old grey haired bernie in his Audi R8 should have been the wake up call to his "base".

Anyone on board after that is just literally retarded.

He's a capitalist that pimps socialist nonsense to the masses(fools).

They all got what they deserve.

ETA: Look at the picture(R8), he looks like your typical limp dicked old man in a 100K sports car trying to get his pecker up. His supporters are absolute drooling morons. I'm tired of low IQ's flooding social media with their nonsense.

Wasn’t Bernie the great hope for the Democrats?

Isn’t there at least one of them who isn’t a massive hypocrite?

Saving massive voter fraud Trump should win even the popular vote by a mile this time around

What union did these employees belong to? Under a collective bargaining agreement the wages are set out on how ever they structure the labor grades and pay scales.

Oh noes, Bernie isn't perfect!

Remember that Trump has knowingly employed illegals, felons and prostitutes.

He also says things that aren't true, for the shock value it has on social media ("I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters").

Bernie CAMPAIGNED on this stuff, and he was actually doing the opposite. Newsflash, politicians lie. ALL politicians. But to campaign on these topics and advocate in favor of taking my money to pay others, while HE screws over his own employees and is a millionaire with multiple homes is despicable, not "imperfect".


But, nice try deflecting. Sorry your love Bernie lied to all of you out there.

The excuse will be about future laws and policies, not current conditions.

Future laws and policies won't work unless everything is picture perfect and all prim and proper first 😎

He's just another one of those "do as I say, not as I do" politicians. As Trump would say, "not a big fan".

I was jealous about the R8 until I saw the full pic.

OK but back to the specific topic, it appears that Bernie thought he was renegotiating the collective bargaining agreement and gave them a $6,000 wage rise, asked them to work extra days.

The former employee took the wage rise but is now arguing that the working hours should be as per the previous agreement.

I don't think that this employee has an actual case, but it does make good spin for the Trump 2020 campaign. This is the same sort of fake news that the Russian trolls were pushing out back in 2016 and now we see the Trump aligned news media doing the same thing.

If you were really up in arms over such a small (in fiscal amount) and most likely non-existent infraction, then why would you accept that Trump has avoided tax and hasn't released his taxation records, which would be for significantly larger sums?

Trump admits he did everything in his power to avoid taxes, you show me a business or working person who doesn’t.
I’ll give you a tip, you won’t find even one.

Bernie on the other hand preached about a min wage and fair working conditions as a point of policy but then went on to prove it was all BS with his actions.

Trump was screwing the government which we can all get behind, Bernie was screwing his workers which no one in their right mind should get behind

"Orange man good", obviously. What other reason could there be? Trump is infallible.

I don't normally defend sanders, as I think he a hypocrite tool.
But in this case I believe he had no clue anything like this was happening.

The moment I knew that Bernie was a wolf in sheeps clothing was the moment he bailed out of the Presidential campaign last time around, didn't fight, didn't continue or even express what we all knew (it was a set up he was never going to win the DNC nomination) but then hearing that he owns three houses and bought the third very close to the end of the DNC race made me realise the bloke was full of BS (Just like Jeremy Corbyn over here in the UK).
