Bernie Wants $15 Minimum Wage for All, Yet His Own Campaign Workers Complain About Pay

Even as he preaches salary hike, new report comes out — shouldn't the anti-Trumper and 2020 hopeful lead by example?

This is maybe the funniest thing I have heard this year so far.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a 2020 candidate for the Democratic nomination, reportedly does not want to pay his campaign workers a total of $15 an hour overall, even though he’s been preaching that wage hike all over the nation.

Once again, we see another example of how liberals love to spend other people’s money — but not their own.

But thanks, Bernie.

It’s a great story as the weekend begins.

Shouldn’t Sanders lead by example?

It is ironic that the guy who is telling us he will support a $15 per hour minimum wage if elected president pays campaign workers less than that overall.

Sounds like a case of “Do as I say, not as I do.”

Another report said that the Sanders campaign is considering reducing worker hours to make sure all workers receive at least $15 per hour.

Reduce hours — and each worker earns less in the end.

This is the glory of socialism.

These people who are asking for $15 per hour obviously don’t shop where they work — or they would also be asking why.

And Bernie’s support of it is all about a candidate looking for votes from the younger crowd who work these jobs.

These jobs were never intended to be a career choice, but a mere stepping stone to a larger employment position.

Margaret Thatcher said it best: “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

Sanders is part of the problem with Democrats; he turned his back on his supporters in 2016 to try to gain favor with the Democratic National Committee, which defamed and corrupted his presidential bid, in my view.

Do not waste your money on this flimflam artist.

Margaret Thatcher said it best: “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

In this case, it will be working-class Americans who will be taxed into poverty for the greater good — or at least Bernie’s idea of the greater good.
