Sanders Campaign Roiled by Workers Demanding Higher Wages

WFB: Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) has made fighting for increased worker pay a major part of his presidential campaign, but the campaign has not been as committed to taking care of its own workers.

The Sanders campaign’s workers have been battling campaign management to give them the $15 minimum wage, which Sanders claims all workers must have, according to a report by the Washington Post. Internal communications from the Sanders campaign show field hires demanding an annual salary equivalent to a $15 hourly minimum wage. Earlier this year, the campaign’s staff became the first major campaign in history to unionize.

The union representing the campaign staff prepared a draft of a letter to potentially send to Sanders’s campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, this week. The letter blasted the campaign for paying “poverty wages.” more here
