Bloomberg Offering $6k for Field Organisers
I'm sure if any of you have participated in campaigns other than comments on the net you've met paid Field Organisers before. Obama had a gazillion of them here in 08, Bennett had quite a few in 10, and Obama to a lesser extent in 12 as our state was a more sure bet. They are always in the offices, organize group canvasses, generate lists for people and maps, do trainings, etc.
Used to be they'd go to a couple weeks of training, then get on the payroll for three thousand, this election it's $3500 for Warren or Sanders. Probably experienced folks get hired right away.
I don't think I need to go into what I don't like about Bloomberg, it's a lot, and I don't want to piss anyone off, maybe you like some parts of his schtick, I don't.
Just goes to show what money will buy. I'd bet even if he gets less than enthusiastic workers he is denying them to other candidates.
Sucks big time.
