DNC Workers Sue Party for Slave Wages — No Overtime Pay

Dozens of Democrat Party workers sued the party for paying slave wages for working 80-90 hours per week.

This was at the same time Democratic groups were holding “Fight for 15” rallies across the United States.

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.

Justin Swidler, the attorney representing the field workers, argued the Democratic Party failed to pay workers a minimum wage and denied them overtime compensation. Swidler “says the lawsuit seeks ‘fair pay for fair work,’ and holding the Democratic Party to the very ideals that it embraces,” according to CBS Philly.

The 2016 Democratic platform pushed for a $ 15-per-hour minimum wage, a nearly $ 8 increase from the current minimum, and promised to defend an Obama-era regulation forcing employers to pay a higher rate to employees for working more than 40 hours.

Some of the Democrats’ workers put in 80-90 hours per week, according to Swidler, and got only $ 3,000 per month in compensation. “They got paid a flat salary of $ 3,000 a month, which isn’t even minimum wage for some of the hours that they were working,” Swidler said.
