Bernie Sanders can’t wait to sink his money-grubbing fingers into your wallets. But when it comes to practicing what he preaches, Bernie is as stingy as they come.
According to the Washington Post, Bernie campaign workers are demanding a $15/hr minimum wage. And the stingy old bastard is balking.
Of course he is.
From the Post:
Shakir [Bernie’s campaign manager] said that it would be damaging to the campaign’s budget to implement a pay hike after expanding field staff based on previously planned salary figures. In conclusion, he said, he would negotiate the matter only through the channels established by the union arrangement.
Oh, I see. Bernie wants to force every business to pay $15/hr whether it damages their budget or not. But he won’t his campaign workers $15/hr because “it would be too damaging to the campaign’s budget.”
Isn’t that a kick in the head?
If only Bernie could apply that same thinking to American businesses.
But of course he doesn’t.
Today is historic.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) July 18, 2019
A few years ago, people laughed and called us "crazy" when we called to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Today, the U.S. House is voting on legislation to do just that.
That is what happens when working people build a movement for change.
Okay, Bernie I won’t call you crazy. I’ll just stick with stingy.
That’s the thing about socialism.
You never ever have to practice what you preach.
If anyone needs to see what happens when employers are forced to pay a minimum wage they can’t afford, look no further than the campaign of the guy eager to force employers to pay a minimum wage they can’t afford.
It’s so easy to be generous with other people’s money, even a stingy old bastard like Bernie can do it.
Just don’t expect him to put his own money where his bellowing mouth is.
