Slavery is the only option.

Modern day slavery is already alive and well. People forget to look at the bottom of their shoes once and a while when they walk out of their office.

Just so I have this clear: The attorney is using the example of the compensation structure of a different organization, for a different event, that isn't named in the lawsuit and whom none of the plaintiff's belong to as part of his argument?


I think it is the same organization, but that the complainants were part of the overall campaign ground game strategy, while the bonuses were from funding overruns of a specific event. I don't know how the DNC is structured financially or organizationally, so that could be a factor. The question with this is whether there was any written employment documentation and what the terms were. Then one would have to see whether those terms were legal at the local/state/federal level. Without any of that information, it is really hard to say. It is likely that some sort of loophole is being employed, and because of the ease with getting passionate (read: foolish) young people to join up, they are being paid much less than then they should be.

If the RNC was being sued ( which it is, actually ) Ruji wouldn't have made a thread in the first place.

Random hatred? I wish.

Hire less people to do more, and get paid less. Modern day slavery, simple no? Everyone is doing it.

Just like major businesses who hire through temp agencies and extend the hiring on process.

IDK something like that. Don't tell me you've never seen modern slavery, come on now

It's not the same organization, it says that straight up in the article. It's people who worked in the field ( aka the ground game, yes ) in other states suing their local direct employers while pointing to the DNC's Home Committee in Philly as an example. The Home Committee had a funding overrun and was able to pay out bonuses and donations. None of the people suing worked for the Home Committee and its not the Home Committee being sued.

What this is, is people working with the "Get Out The Vote" ground game campaign. Which is more of a volunteer thing. Ground canvassers like this are paid a stipend and work pretty irregular hours. But put in more hours, obviously, towards the end of presidential campaigns. The RNC pays out a similar rate for the same work. But the RNC didn't have a $15 minimum wage in their platform.

Hypocrisy, however, is not a legal argument. This is basically the lawyers shaming the DNC with bad PR as a pressure tactic.

Legally speaking, this will come down to whether or not individual state laws about overtime actually apply to this type of work at a local level.

He is pretty cynical, all things considered. One of his claims that everyone would betray our morals and becomes hypocrites, such as marrying a baby if it means gaining control over their fortune of 20 million dollars, which by extension, perhaps means he believes everyone has a price or opportunity to act immorally.

Cannot say I agree.

Man Trump really doesn't like paying people does he?

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/20/politics/trump-aide-legal-funds/index.html


The ex-staff member, who told CNN he is racking up legal fees after hiring an attorney in order to respond to questions from federal investigators, also said he was never paid for his work for the campaign. He requested anonymity to speak candidly.

"In many ways, the Trump associates are the real victims here," the ex-staffer said.
"The world (is) going after them and Trump (is) leaving them abandoned on the battlefield," he added. "Yet many lives will be ruined in the process."

You missed a lot of the article. This happened because all the xenophobes and russophobes are trying to find anything they can use to tie Trump to Russia and are harassing everyone that worked with Trump on his campaign. Democrats are willing to step on anyone to try to attack the president. Its sickening.


Here's the rest of that article:



A former Trump campaign aide is requesting that President Donald Trump set up a legal fund to help associates ensnared in the federal probe into Trump campaign contacts with Russia.


"My heart aches," one former campaign official said of ex-staffers who might be caught up in the Russia investigation.
Ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, are among the former campaign officials said to be of interest to federal investigators. But the former campaign aide who spoke with CNN about his own legal woes said there are others who may not have the financial means to withstand a lengthy probe.
In addition to mounting legal fees, the former campaign staff member also expressed concern about how his job prospects may be affected by the Russia investigation.
"At a minimum, political careers dead and damaged ability to work in DC," the ex-staffer said, insisting that there is still no evidence of Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government to throw the 2016 election to Trump.
"There is still no stitch of evidence for collaboration or collusion," the former staffer said.

Yeah, I read the whole thing and it didn't mention xenophobes or russophobes. Maybe you clicked the wrong link?

Haha, I wouldn't expect you to understand the relevance. After all, it wasn't posted in simple to read meme form.
