Hello John, I totally agree — there is such a thing as volunteer labor.

But this isn’t it. The labor laws are cut and dried and over 8,000 companies paid settlements for violating them last year. The DNC owes these employees unpaid overtime. They cannot say this $3,000 is a “stipend” though I’m sure they’ll try.

It’s nice to see the bonuses paid to those “volunteers” from the actual convention, isn’t it?
