Democrat Party ‘field organizers’ during 2016 election filed a class action lawsuit against the Democrat Party for paying slave wages and not paying workers overtime pay as they slaved 80-90 hours per week.
DNC paid executive director of DNC Convention 300,000 just for convention, interns got $500 … & then stiffed workers.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Host Committee for the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia has paid out nearly a million dollars to staff members, and local institutions, from leftover money it raised to stage the event
But, dozens of people who worked in the field elsewhere in the country for Democrats feel shortchanged and are now part of a class action federal lawsuit.
The bonuses ranged from $500 for interns to more than $300,000 for the executive director.
“I think everyone’s reaction is the same. It’s obscene,” says Justin Swidler, a Cherry Hill-based attorney.
Swidler is pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of 40-to-50 “field organizers” all over the country, whom he says were denied overtime compensation.
“One of the arguments that the Democrats are making is that they just don’t have the money to pay overtime to their workers,” said Swidler.
The named defendants are the Democratic National Committee, the Pennsylvania Democratic Party and five more state party organizations.
“These workers were out there in a campaign that was promising $15 an hour minimum wage, and expanding the overtime rights of workers,” Swidler said.
….One of the lead plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit is Bethany Katz of Rosemont.
Swidler says she and others believed in the Democratic platform and ideals, and put in 80-to-90-hours a week in the last stages of the race to support Hillary Clinton.
“They got paid a flat salary of $3,000 a month, which isn’t even minimum wage for some of the hours that they were working,” said Swidler.
He says the lawsuit seeks “fair pay for fair work,” and holding the Democratic Party to the very ideals that it embraces.
- CNN: “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?”
According to The New York Business Journal, CNN is facing class action lawsuit from 175 current and former employees, alleging racism at America’s liberal cable network. And theirs is worse than Fox News. Hey media, why the silent cricket treatment?
As many as 175 current and former employees of CNN have contacted lawyers about joining a class-action suit that alleges racism at the cable network.
The news comes as two other media organizations, The New York Times and Fox News, are also being sued.
According to the New York Post, the lawsuit against CNN claims that the Atlanta-based company is “rife with racism” and “bigoted remarks.”
“It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?” are just some of the statements alleged in the complaint, filed by former CNN executive assistant Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr., a former manager at the affiliated Turner Broadcasting System.
Henley and Colbert Jr. , represented by attorney Daniel Meachum, also cite wage discrimination, claiming that they were both paid less than white counterparts.
CNN representatives did not respond to requests for comment.
Sean Hannity accuser Debbie Schlussel is changing her tune. After finding out Hannity plans to sue her for fake allegations, she now denies the sexual harassment story.
Tonight, Hannity opened his show with a new warning to Debbie Schlussel and any liberal fascist who attempts to slander him, warning them he had retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country and are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action to those who slander him.
Schlussel spoke with LawNewz earlier today. LawNews reported:
Debbie Schlussel, a former Fox News guest, appeared on a local radio show on Friday and recounted an incident where Sean Hannity purportedly asked her to a hotel, and when she rebuffed his advances, she claims, she was ostracized by the network star. The story has since gone viral garnering headlines like “Sean Hannity Accused of Sexually Harassing Fox News Guest” in publications like The Daily Beast and The Huffington Post. Now, in an interview with LawNewz.com on Monday morning, Schlussel is denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Sean Hannity. While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition.
“I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel, an attorney herself, said. Schlussel said the interaction happened in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show.
“He tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly,” she said on the radio program. Schlussel later clarified that it wasn’t his hotel room, but rather his hotel. She told LawNewz.com that she did go on the show following the incident, but after that was “banned from Fox News.”
“I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity, I thought he was weird and creepy not someone I liked,” Schlussel said.
Really? An unknown former Fox News contributor Debbie Schlussel is accusing Sean Hannity of sexual harassment. Schlussel tells Oklahoma’s Pat Campbell Show that Sean Hannity invited her back to his hotel room during a joint appearance in Detroit and according to Schlussel, after she refused his advances, she was not invited back onto his show.
Hannity is fighting back and is preparing a lawsuit against this serial liar. He calls Schlussel ‘a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation.’
Sean Hannity responded to The Blaze regarding these accusations:
“LET ME BE CLEAR – THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual are 100% false and a complete fabrication.
This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation.
The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with.
This individual desperately seeks attention by any means necessary, including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric.
My patience with this individual is over. I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual.
In this fiercely divided & vindictive political climate, I will no longer allow slander and lies about me to go unchallenged, as I see a coordinated effort afoot to now silence those with conservative views. I will fight every single lie about me by all legal means available to me as an American.”
Debbie Schlussel has been after Hannity’s scalp for years.
MUSLIMS TO PROTEST AGAINST AMAZON FOR LACK OF PRAYER ROOMS… THE MUSLIMS WHINE TO SEE HOW THE INFIDELS COWER!
The Muslim whiners are whining again for more special treatment – they want prayer rooms!
Muslim employees are leading a march in front of the Amazon headquarters claiming that they are being discriminated against because Amazon doesn’t provide prayer rooms to a few Muslim security guards employed by Amazon subcontractor, Security Industry Specialists. Each prayer is 10 minutes long plus the Muslim has to wash their hands and feet prior to praying. The thing is, Muslims can pray in later part of the day if they didn’t pray earlier that day.
They know in western countries, when a Muslim whines, the infidels succumb to them. In the meantime, Muslim countries BAN Christians from worshiping in public, not allowed to build churches, carry a Bible or share their Christian faith.
Fox News reports:
Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington.
The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job.
The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out.
The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers during their law-mandated work breaks.
Amazon and the security contractor have refuted the allegations.
P DIDDY REVOLT SUED FOR REVERSE DISCRIMINATION: COMPLAIN BLACK EMPLOYEES COME TO WORK LATE, DRUNK OR HUNG OVER
- execs turned a blind eye to the behavior of “African-American employees who arrived to work intoxicated or hung over,” the suit says
- When Baker complained about the lack of punctuality of the show’s guests, production manager Cherisse McKenzie allegedly said “he just did not understand the ‘culture’ of the show’s guests and on-air personalities.”
- One production assistant “often came to work late, drunk and slept on the editing floor during work hours,” the suit says
Douglas Goodstein and four producers, who’d previously worked for “The Howard Stern Show,” were hired by Revolt TV in January 2014.
The team produced its popular urban talk radio program “The Breakfast Club” that airs mornings on Power 105.1 FM.
But the producers, who are all white and over age 39, say they were “treated worse than other employees who were younger and African American.”
Executive Vice President Val Boreland “was always rude, condescending and dismissive towards the Goodstein Production Team,” the Manhattan civil suit claims.
“Ms. Boreland, however, treated the African-American staff in a much friendlier and respectful manner,” according to court papers.
Meanwhile, execs turned a blind eye to the behavior of “African-American employees who arrived to work intoxicated or hung over,” the suit says.
One production assistant “often came to work late, drunk and slept on the editing floor during work hours,” the suit says.
Yet he “suffered no repercussions for this behavior.”

PHONY! MODERN APPEALING CLOTHING ( MAC )SUING IVANKA TRUMP ALTHOUGH ‘MAC would rather make a friend than a sale’…really?
MAC is suing Ivanka but according to an interview, they don’t care about sales: ‘One of the rules I learned early on about MAC is we’d rather make a friend than a sale’
San Francisco based Modern Appealing Clothing ( MAC ) is suing Ivanka Trump for ‘unfair competition’. The suit also asked for a restraining order that prevents the Ivanka Trump label from being sold in California. MAC is described as a “San Francisco’s fashion Wonderland”. It was founded in San Francisco by brother and sister Ben and Chris Ospital, with their mom, Jeri, in 1980.
While Ivanka’s clothes are classic chic, Modern Appealing Clothing (MAC) just complete opposite:
“The merchandise is high-concept fantasy” with “collections of independent brands and local designers with out-of-the-ordinary visions”
Ben Ospital:We all had a radical streak. Mom and Dad supported Cesar Chavez, and at 12 I was making signs for United Farm Workers protests.
Ben: We still say today what we said then: “Dress one person well, they’ll tell 20 people.” That’s how things started.
Goble: One of the rules I learned early on about MAC is we’d rather make a friend than a sale. I understand through Ben, Chris and Jeri’s guidance the importance of the karma of clothes.
