Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who bills himself the socialist man of the people running for the Democratic nomination for President in 2020, has been hit with a federal labor complaint alleging that his campaign is engaging in abusive practices against its workers.
The complaint was made to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on July 19, filed by an anonymous individual from Indiana. The charges have not been made public at the present time, but the docket released by the board on July 22 indicates that the Sanders campaign may have committed as many as five violations of the National Labor Relations Act.
The NLRB will ultimately determine whether or not these allegations have any merit. The Sanders campaign is also accused in the complaint of illegally firing a worker, modifying a labor contract unlawfully, and disciplining a worker excessively. It appears Sanders isn’t even waiting until he’s President to institute a Gulag!
Sanders has come under fire in other ways for his campaign’s poor labor practices as well. After pushing the idea for a $15-an-hour minimum wage nationally, it was revealed that he didn’t pay his own staffers that same wage in many cases.
“Many field staffers are barely managing to survive financially, which is severely impacting our team’s productivity and morale,” the union representing Sanders’ campaign staff wrote in a letter issued to campaign manager Faiz Shakir. “Some field organizers have already left the campaign as a result.”
After the details of the negotiations were leaked to the press, Sanders commented against them in caustic comments that made the socialist egalitarian seem more like a penny-pinching fat cat.
“It does bother me that people are going outside of the process and going to the media,” Sanders said. “That is really not acceptable. It is really not what labor negotiations are about, and it’s improper.”
Sanders eventually capitulated after receiving widespread scrutiny regarding his campaign’s disingenuous labor practices:

Unfortunately for Sanders, that isn’t the only humiliating hypocrisy he has to worry about. The Indianapolis office of the labor board will hold a preliminary investigation into the complaint filed against the Sanders campaign in the upcoming weeks. Lawyers for the board will decide if the claim is meritorious after the investigation takes place, and make a final determination on whether it warrants further action.
Sanders made history when his campaign staff was the first ever to be unionized under the United Food and Commercial Workers, but his campaign is showing that union labor is inefficient and difficult to manage. Sanders’ beleaguered campaign is ironically providing the nation with a teachable moment about economics.
FLASHBACK: Chris Wallace Asked Trump to Disavow White Supremacy in 2016; Trump Did Then and He Did Now
They have been pushing the same talking points for nearly half a decade.
President Donald Trump is under fire for allegedly not disavowing white supremacists, even though he did, and has done so frequently for many years.
“I totally disavow the Ku Klux Klan. I totally disavow David Duke. I’ve been doing it now for two weeks. You have to be, like, the 18th person to ask me this question,” Trump said in response to globalist Fox News propagandist Chris Wallace in March 2016.
Trump responded to Wallace in similar fashion in 2020, demanding to know specific groups to disavow before issuing a statement.
“It was very clear that question was talked about in the form of groups. Groups. I want to know which groups you’re talking about. You have to tell me which groups. Ultimately, it got to the Ku Klux Klan, which, obviously, I’m going to disavow,” he said.
Trump noted that his Tweets disavowing white supremacy and racism are not typically picked up by the fake news media, even though most of his other Tweets are.
“And, by the way, if you look at my Twitter account, almost immediately after the program, they were disavowed again. You know, it’s amazing, when I do something on Twitter, everybody picks it up. It goes all over the place. But when I did this one, nobody ever picks it up,” Trump said.
Wallace recycled the same line of questioning during the debates over four years later in order to paint President Trump as an enabler of white supremacy.
“Are you willing tonight to condemn white supremacists and militia groups?” Wallace asked Trump.
“Sure,” Trump interjected.
“And to say that they need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities?” Wallace added.
“Sure,” Trump said again.
“As we saw in Kenosha, and as we’ve seen in Portland,” Wallace butted in to say.
“Sure, I’m willing to do that,” Trump said.
The record is clear. President Trump has disavowed white supremacy and denounced white nationalists over and over again. But that doesn’t stop the deranged Left from claiming the exact opposite anyway.
“Tonight, he once again showed why a majority of Jewish voters say that Jews will be less safe if Trump is re-elected. He doesn’t just enable white supremacy, it’s his platform” https://t.co/kB3t82ZCSm

Trump is a racist who supports white supremacy and white supremacists. That’s bad enough. But the worst part is he’s standing by these people, ready to incite them to violence to help steal the election, hold onto power and save his own skin.

Reading about how worried the GOP is that Trump won’t renounce racism because it could cost them votes. How about being worried that the president of your party is an out-and-out racist lover of white supremacy? #biden2020

A little odd how the media is freaking out because Trump wouldn't condemn white supremacy. But it's something they've given him a pass on for years. Central Park 5, Obama's birth certificate, kids in cages, etc. They shrugged all of it off and moved on.

White supremacy is the new Russian collusion – a canard floated out there to get the public’s minds off of the orgy of destruction across America caused by left-wing terrorists directly enabled by the Democrat Party and their media partners.
