Bernie Sanders rallied behind the “Fight for Fifteen,” a group supporting a $15 an hour minimum wage, during his presidential campaign. Unfortunately for those who interned for the candidate, they really would’ve had to wait for him to become president to earn such a wage, as they only earned $12 an hour.
Elizabeth Warren meanwhile wonders why the minimum wage isn’t $22 an hour (Here’s why not), but doesn’t pay her interns at all. Women who are lucky enough to work for the equal pay champion, and be paid for it, will find their wages equaling only 71 percent of their male counterparts.
Worst of all the hypocrites to work for however would be the already scandal-ridden DNC, where you can expect to work overtime, then have to sue to be compensated for it.
Per the Washington Free Beacon, Dozens of field workers have filed a class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, claiming the party that is pushing employers to pay a $15 minimum wage and more in overtime failed to pay overtime and minimum wages to its own employees.
