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.
EXCLUSIVE: Leaked Email Shows How GOP Leaders Botched Election Ops for Trump in Key Battleground State
It wasn’t Trump who blew it; it was the RINOs.
In the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election farce, the majority of Republican officials have been desperate to quash legitimate investigations and perpetrate the ruse that no severe irregularities occurred in battleground states.
According to emails leaked to Big League Politics, the reason behind this Republican cover-up may be due to the extreme levels of incompetence and failure exerted by the GOP establishment.
Big League Politics obtained the correspondence from Jan. 22 in which one exasperated attorney described how the state of Michigan was woefully unprepared for election fraud that was plotted in the open many months in advance.
“Sure the Democrats lied and cheated to win but the truth is that they out smarted (sic) us. They set the table in the courts before the election so they could do what they do so well. We got played. Now we know what is coming next time,” the lawyer stated.
“Instead of us organizing a few weeks before 2022 we need to start now,” they added.
The attorney outlined how the Michigan Republican Party and their big money attorneys dropped the ball on everything from election day operations to the fight for accountability after the robbery had occurred.
“The effort in Detroit smacked of last minute preparation or no preparation at all. People arrived and were offered no direction. There was no set of guidelines on election law. I pressed to get a copy of the Michigan Secretary of State guidelines but we had no copier at the office. I had 60 copies made at my hotel and gave them out,” the attorney explained.
“From day to day we had little idea of what to do. Making calls to voters is a great idea but did we really need to fly lawyers in from all over the US to do that? That could have been done by anyone. It was a waste of talent and money,” they added.
The attorney is hoping that Republicans in Michigan and across the country improve their efforts in subsequent years, and they are willing to lead the effort so elections are not bumbled as they were in 2020.
“Next time we do this lets (sic) have written materials in advance. Lets (sic) have a greeter to orient people. Tell people ahead of time that they needed a google account. Have a tech person there to help those who were born before 1980. Have a printer and a coffee maker that works. Have local maps. Have a hotel closer to the office,” the attorney wrote.
“I have done this before for many years… I knew what to look for. People need to be trained in how to be a poll watcher. I am ready to begin work. Lets (sic) get our act together. Thank you to all of you for what you did. You are patriots and can be very proud,” they wrote to conclude their email.
Big League Politics has reported extensively about the voter fraud that took place in Michigan that was ultimately rubber stamped by Republican elected officials:
Earlier tonight, Big League Politics reported on two Republican members of the Wayne County board of canvassers who refused to certify dubious election results in Detroit…
However, the Republican members of the Wayne County board of canvassers – Bill Hartmann and Monica Palmer – quickly capitulated and reversed their decision. Even though they were both present when thousands of mysterious ballots showed up in the dead of night after the election, they stabbed the whistleblowers in the back anyway by rubberstamping the sham…
Palmer and Hartmann will go down as two of the most cowardly traitors in the history of the Republic. That will be the legacy that their posterity will have to live down long after they are gone.
The total failure of the Republican establishment to protect elections last year is the truth that GOP elected officials desperately want to obscure from the masses.
