Liberal Hypocrisy

You couldn’t make this up even if you tried. Isthmus, a Madison-based newspaper, is reporting that Grassroots Campaigns, a supposedly ‘nonpolitical’ canvassing company hired to raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee based in Washington DC, has been found to be paying its employees below the minimum wage, a clear violation of Wisconsin state law. What makes this truly ironic though is that one of the talking points Grassroots Campaigns created for their employees to solicit funds was ‘Raising the Minimum Wage’.
