Jul 21 - Bernie Sanders Announces it will Cut Hours to Pay Staffers 15 s hour
 

 
Democrat presidential candidate*Bernie Sandersannounced this weekend he will cut staffers' hours so that they can effectively be paid a $15-an-hour*minimum wage,*prompting mockery from critics who say the move is*more evidence*that Sanders' plan to raise the national minimum wage is hypocritical and would*only lead to less work and more unemployment.


The Washington Post*first reported last Thursday*that Sanders' field staffers were upset that Sanders championed a $15 minimum wage on the campaign trail, and made headlines for railing*against major corporations who pay*"starvation wages"*-- even as his own employees made "poverty wages."

In response, Sanders*told The Des Moines Register*he was*"very proud" to lead the first major presidential campaign with unionized workers, but also "bothered"*that news of the internal strife had spilled into the media.



The self-described socialist candidate said junior field organizers earn roughly $36,000 per year in salary, with employer-paid health care and sick leave. But he acknowledged that their salary can effectively dip below $15 per hour if staffers work much more than 40 hours per week, which is common on presidential campaigns.




The solution is to*"limit the number of hours staffers work to 42 or 43 each week to ensure they’re making the equivalent of $15 an hour," he told the Register's*Brianne Pfannenstiel.



*does bother me that people are going outside of the process and going to the media," Sanders added. "That is really not acceptable. It is really not what labor negotiations are about, and it's improper."

He went on to say*that the union contract "not only provides pay of at least $15 an hour, it also provides, I think, the best health care benefits that any employer can provide for our field organizers."


Reaction from commentators and lawmakers was unsparing.

"For the first time in his life, socialist Bernie Sanders practices economics and, buddy, the results are hilarious,"*wrote*columnist and humorist Stephen Miller. He added: "Why won’t millionaire Bernie Sanders, who owns 3 homes, instead of cutting hours, pay his staff a living wage? People are starving."

Basically the story Bernie Sanders called for 15 a hour minimum wage , but yet his staff exposed hes only paying them 13 a hour . So to pay them 15 ges cutting there hours. Exactly why socialism doesnt work can bx economist @Boogersugar and @Skateboard T please explain how this is gonna work ?


@Ymmot I would suggest u sit this one out

He didnt actually cut their "hours", they're salaried.

They're salaried and were working over 40 hours a week. Typical sh*t salaried employees deal with.

So his solution was to not work staffers for hours they technically were doing for free.

These people are making the same pay and now work less a week.

This is a non-story.

Oh nice cape.
So your saying it's acceptable to work your workers more than 40 and not pay them for it. Got it
Your such a tool caping for socialism that has worked absolutely nowere in the world.

It's funny how the dems made illegal immigration only about Mexico too. That's how fukin gullible you are. These people seeking asylum to America from every country in the world. It's sad people like u are educating our children.

@ Fake News headlines

Staffers are salaried.

Their pay is exactly the same.

They work less hours to earn the same pay.

Workers actually won in this case. Good for Bernie.

I'm guessing you've never held a job with a salary.

Last 3 years I was teaching in NYC working 50-60 hours a week. I wish somebody woulda cut my hours!!

I'd have more time to enjoy my family and money!

You fu*king idiot.

Looks like they were salary and only went below 15 an hour if they worked overtime. So if they had mandatory overtime it’s a different issue. But yea he should have capped it from the beginning if he couldn’t do 15 throughout.

I clock in for myself not you. I dont need Bernie or any politician in charge of what money I make nor my destiny. I'm a go getter , you are a yes man clock in type of guy.

yeah these Liberals cant seperate their emotions from common sense. Now that Breadline Bern has to walk the walk people lost jobs and hopefully this hurts his campaign seems like he's now got less feet on the street campaigning and this looks so good on Bernie his employees also deserve free health insurance and free education as well come on Bernie these are your rules you cheap rich bastard!!

So they were salaried and he wasnt paying them 15 dollars an hour to work 40 hours a week. He's a hypocrite. It is a story

they now work less a week and this will affect the campaign greatly. They rely on the extra hours but commie union lover Bernie needs to shell out for the time and a half and double time on holidays plus free health insurance and free education for his employees plus he needs to give them several weeks paid vacation and sick pay as well. Good luck Bernie you stupid fu*king idiot!

Think about why k*ller Mike was so vocal about supporting this guy. Because democrats are targeting the little-informed urban communities to usher in socialism. Which like OP has said has never worked anywhere throughout history.
