[I used to debate endlessly with Liberals and Jews, and I even tried to debate with blacks and others. After wasting thousands of hours of my life I've reached the point where I just dismiss them all. I don't even bother to listen to their lame, childish, Jew-stupidity. Whites are right, and whites must spend their time and energy on other whites. Anything else is a waste of time. The notion that whites must bend on their knees for blacks or wash their feet is pure nonsense. Our race is much grander and amazing than that. That is what JEWS take us to. Here in SA I watch as Jewish Liberalism continues to collapse. Even here in my neighbourhood, with a 37 hour power outage that just ended, I watch as my white and Indian neighbours vent frustration at the system. The system is breaking and I LIKE IT A LOT. Give the Black and Jewish house of cards a GOOD FIRM PUSH AND KICK and you'll see how weak it really is. Liberalism is just Jewish crap and nothing more. Jews and Communism, and Liberalism… all those Jewish ISMs … throw them out of your life. Jan]
AOC’s congressional campaign staff reaches deal to unionize
The contract includes overtime pay after 40 hours per week, a salary floor of at least $4,000 per month for full-time workers and unlimited sick leave.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign staff has reached a deal to unionize with the Campaign Workers Guild (CWG), finalizing a two-year contract that includes overtime pay above 40 hours per week, a salary floor of at least $4,000 per month for full-time workers and unlimited sick leave, the staffers announced Monday.
Hourly workers for Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign will be paid no less than $18 per hour, a press release said. The agreement includes 12 weeks of paid parental leave, bonuses and stipends for remote-work expenses and even child care. It includes severance pay and health, life, dental and vision insurance.
The contract also includes language protecting immigrant workers and standardizing gender neutrality.
“We’re putting into practice so many of the policies this campaign organizes for every day,” said Ariella Schwartz, events manager for AOC’s campaign and bargaining team member.
The lawmaker praised the move.
“Workers’ rights are the cornerstone of an economy that puts humanity first. I’ve lived without health insurance or dignity in the workplace, and I applaud the work our team has done to raise the bar for all workers,” said Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., in a statement.
Meg Reilly, president of the CWG, told The Intercept that the biggest win in the contract was overtime pay. “CWG has negotiated dozens of contracts and we’ve gotten close, we’ve fought for overtime in every contract, we have won it quite rarely and it’s a big cultural shift,” Reilly said. “So for these campaign workers across industries to get overtime after 40 [hours] is monumental.”
The contract also reportedly includes a section on “gender neutrality,” which says the campaign will notify employees that transgender and nonbinary people may use whichever bathrooms they feel comfortable using, as well as standardizing gender-neutral language in onboarding materials.
The Campaign Workers Guild was formed in 2017 by a group of former campaign workers and has represented workers for dozens of campaigns, including the presidential runs of Andrew Yang and Julián Castro.
Ocasio-Cortez won her June 23 primary with nearly 70 percent of the vote and will likely face a smooth path to reelection in her heavily Democratic New York City district.
