If Sanders said it once, he said it a thousand times. "Corporate Greed" is to blame for the plight of the average American. Big shot CEO's treat their laborers like dirt. They're always focused on the bottom line. They fail to "put people over profits".
Now the news breaks that Bernie himself will be laying off hundreds of campaign workers across the country. Can you believe it? How ruthless!
Oh sure, Sanders tries to explain it rationally:
“We want to win as many delegates as we can, so we do not need workers now in states around the country. We don’t need people right now in Connecticut. That election is over. We don’t need them in Maryland. So what we are going to do is allocate our resources to the 14 contests that remain, and that means that we are going to be cutting back on staff.”
How dare he try to pull the old corporate trick that resources are scarce? When was the last time he opened a government schoolbook?
Resources are not scarce!
Furthermore, it wasn't Bernie that got all those votes and delegates. It was his hard-working campaign staff! It was their blood, sweat and tears. They should be the ones reaping the benefits of their work.
Nope. Instead the benefits go right to the top.
The hard workers get pink slips.
It's not like Bernie doesn't have the money.
Here's a man, who is supposedly "getting money out of politics," that is literally swimming in cash! The Washington Post tells us that: "Bernie Sanders is outraising, outspending and outadvertising Hillary Clinton’s campaign".
Sanders has all this money and he's "cutting back" on his staff? Talk about being used and abused.
Greedy Bernie....very greedy.
Walk the talk. Keep all your staffers. They're tired of the 1% getting all the benefits. Give them "access" to jobs. It is their "right" to work for you, and you have a "social responsibility" to make sure they stay employed.
Don't "discriminate" between staffers in one state versus another. They are all "equal" in value to your campaign.
And finally, you firing campaign staffers will certainly contribute to climate change.
Don't do it Bernie.
Think about the children.
