Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders is on the stump demanding a $15 minimum wage for all workers.
There’s just one problem. Sanders doesn’t pay many of his campaign workers that.
RedState blogger Bonchie has more:
He’s relentlessly slandered companies as not caring about workers because they can’t pay the guy who flips burgers $15 an hour. Not that there’s anything wrong with working in fast food (anyone that takes the initiative to work deserves no criticism in my book), but financial realities are what they are and demanding more money than a job justifies just leads to faster automation.
Those financial realities never enter into the equation for Bernie though.
Well, unless it’s his own campaign.
SCOOP: For years, Bernie Sanders has traveled the country advocating for a $15 per hour minimum wage. His campaign organizers say they aren’t making that much, and they’re using his words to protest for higher wages. Via @WaPoSean https://t.co/ZQgnT7jYrx

The hypocrisy opens the Vermont senator to withering criticism in the next presidential debate.
