Pathetic: Anti-Romney Protestors Picked Up Off the Streets and Paid $11 Per Hour
admin | On 28, Sep 2012
It seems the democrats have recently created jobs, but not as a result of an ‘Obama recovery’. In fact, the ‘jobs’ they’ve created are a result of questionable campaigning practices. Wednesday, Mitt Romney had a campaign event in Ohio, and the protestors present were folks endorsing Obama, wearing purple, pro-Obama SEIU t-shirts, reading “SEIU for Obama 2012″. So, they must have been apart of the SEIU (a union) and must want Obama to be reelected, if I’m reasoning through this correctly. The Blaze has the story:
The video, posted to YouTube on Wednesday, showed protesters carrying a variety of signs including “SEIU for Obama 2012.” Some wore T-shirts in the labor union’s signature purple.
The article also states:
One woman said the SEIU picked people up from around the community to come protest and that a lot of activists just “go door to door.”
But are these real protestors …who showed up, because they wish to selflessly engage in exercising their freedom of speech, standing in the rain, because they love their country, and would never take a paycheck to do so (like most protestors in these United States)?
Actually, they were being paid $11 per hour. How nice. The Blaze:
“We rode down here today,“ one man with an ”SEIU for Obama” sign said on camera. “They’re paying $11 an hour.”
She said there were paid canvassers picketing as well as community activists.
Another man confirmed on camera he was with the SEIU and was being paid, though declined to say how much. A woman next to him said it was $11 an hour.
However, it wasn’t long before The Blaze was discovered, and the protestors were no longer allowed to take any more questions. I suppose they were just busy.
It remains to be seen if they will go on strike in the event that the SEIU does not give them steady pay increases. If not, they would likely go on strike, picketing the anti-Romney protest picketers.
Unions are confusing, to say the least.
