Democrats, did you see what happened when the Sanders campaign agreed to pay it's campaign staff a $15 Minimum wage? It CUT HOURS!?

This is a real world example of what happens when you mandate a high minimum wage. Organizations will cut the hours of the staff to compensate. And this was an organization headed by an admitted Socialist!

Update:

PS...you gotta love the spin the Liberal News media put on this. Newsweek described it as giving the staff "better hours." Hilarious!

    It couldn't more clearly indicate what a mandated wage increase will result in . Fewer jobs .

      current employees extra for their time or hire more people to make up for loss in time ... This correction in pay hasn't cut jobs in Bernie's campaign, it may well result in increasing the number of jobs ... That's being negotiated.

      Democrats are not socialists. They are capitalists who believe in the regulation of business and the need for some social programs (a social safety net) to protect and secure the lives of the middle class and the poor ... something the wealthy will never need.

    Any other time that happens, hypocritical socialists like Sanders blame "greed" for cutting hours.

    But, socialists rules and standards never apply to the socialists in charge.

    I see the right wing propaganda you’re trying to spin us..... Sorry but when I start hearing Conservative talking point parroted on TV and repeated in these questions, I tend to think that the question poster doesn’t have a mind of his own and needs to be told how to think......When I look at you I see what politicians call a “useful idiot”

    If a single fast food restaurant began paying its employees $15 an hour, it would go out of business. If they ALL paid their employees $15, it would be a level playing field.

    Same goes for a presidential campaign

    Someone should make a documentary about this phenomenon, but unfortunately the title "An Inconvenient Truth" has already been taken.

      The inconvenient truth in this is that Bernie has adjusted his system of payroll to insure that he is in compliance with his call for a $15 minimum wage even though this is years ahead of when it would take effect.

    You're cherry-picking, parroting right wing talking points and lying about what kind of a socialist Sanders is

    but the rich who run the country love you

    Bernie blew up his own campaign.

      No ... That Newsweek article demonstrates that Bernie is consistent about a $15 minimum wage even though his own plan wouldn't get the minimum to $15 til 5 years after passage of his bill.
