The socialist party in Seattle that wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour but advertised a job last week for an experienced web developer paying just $13 per hour is now defending itself.

The argument from the Freedom Socialist Party is that it cannot afford the minimum wage it seeks to impose on every commercial entity in America.

Doug Barnes, the Freedom Socialist Party’s national secretary, claimed that the collectivist political organization shouldn’t be subject to its own wage demands because it is a nonprofit that receives revenue from leftist contributors.

“We’re practicing what we’re preaching in terms of continuing to fight for the minimum wage,” Barnes told the HuffPo. “But we can’t pay a lot more than $13.”

Don't you know that the whole idea behind socialism is that it's paid for by someone else?

Their are $20.00 Broom Pushers / $3.00 Broom Pushers / and Some Broom Pushers that will do it for nothing at all - but just the opportunity and pleasure.

Should be absolutely NO Guaranteed Wage : Let Talent and Competitiveness and Self accountability drive the wage : Capitalize

THE SORT

Several Countries have absolutely NONE and VERY LOW UN-EMPLOYMENT

They Prosper TOO along with THOSE WHO WISH to WORK !!!!

Beware of the $20.00 Broom Pusher or those that Push FREE ! For the Pleasure to serve. He may be their Just too look stupid for purpose

That fits with the socialist party in Seattle...they can't afford $20/hr, but someone else can.

Translation: Oh crap we got caught! Quick! Change the goal posts!!! Only evil profit making businesses should pay $20/hr. Ya, that's what we meant!!! Non-profits shouldnt be held to the same standard, that way us non-profit Directors and Board Members and Managers can take home more pay for ourselves. DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!

I wonder how they explain to their workers how this works? Maybe they tell their workers that non profit workers don't eat as much as profit workers do...well at $7/hr less, I would expect they would eat less. See, it explains itself.

Exactly. AND the non-profit workers only "have to" work 29 hours per week, gives them more "free time" to explore their artistic side; AND that way the angelic non-profit doesnt have to participate in providing Obamacare to its employees! It's a WIN - WIN!!!!

Non-profit? Is that like a hobby? Should they all work for free then?
