TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY NEW AIRPORT EFFORT REJECTS $15 PER HOUR FAIR WAGE FOR CAMPAIGN WORKERS!!!



Behind the scenes, every political effort connected with City Hall has been encouraged to pay entry level employees at least $15-an-hour to support the "fair wage" stance of the Mayor & City Council.

Sadly, even amid heavy funding from a slate of local corporations . . . The "Better KCI" campaign isn't paying a living wage.

Here's proof from an advert in the latest Democratic Party mailer:

Want to Make Some Extra Money?

Are you looking for a part time job that doesn't have you glued to a computer screen or operating a fryer? Powerful Performance Solutions is looking for paid full and part time field canvassers to join the A Better KCI team to help persuade voters to support the building of a new, 21st century airport terminal. Pay is $12 an hour and employees are paid weekly.
########


To be fair, $12 isn't bad for bothering people about something they don't want.

However . . .

This tidbit reminds us to be suspicious about the airport promising more jobs and benefits to local labor.

You decide . . .

A bad deal for sure.

The support from taxpayers they're getting for this campaign without public consent is even worse.

Why should we pay the Mayor and some of the council to be campaign spokesman?

When the new airport is built The food industry and retail worker's will not be paid much as well by the time they take out payroll taxes and put gas in there car and pay rent and utilities they won't have anything left. Don't apply for an airport retail job.

Powerful Performance Solutions is the Democrat Phil Scaglia operation out in SW Lee's Summit.

The same guy who runs Congressman Carwash's finances.

As a resident of Lee's Summit, Scaglia won't be eligible to vote on the airport terminal question.

Funking shame. The Democratic city leaders don't keep their word when it's something they really want.

You can rest assured that this is union money paying these workers. Unions never pay much in these cases. The city isn't paying workers to do this. If they were, Sly would find himself mayor of Leavenworth pretty damn fast.

agree for the most part on this comment BUT Sly's face is front and center on the campaign literature.

Sly is ALL ABOUT SLY, and nothing else!!! Listen to what he said in Des Moines to Dem Establishment: trite BS, aimed at the shallowest of the ignorant that think he might be able to deliver "jobs"!! What a fraud!! Please take your BS and bow tie somewhere else, or go back to ambulance chasing, and spare KCMO citizens your very expensive Ego Trip!!!!

The living wage advocates wanted to set the minimum at $10. It wouldn't be $15 until 2022 or something like that. Bunch of angst about nothing here. $12 is 2017 is more than they even asked for so whats the problem?

Fair wage KC said...

^^^ Don't read much? Their movement is called the Fight for $15, not the fight for $12.

Damn Tony you sure like deleting my comments. What's the matter, don't want to hear a different opinion or ideas than your own? Seems pretty weak and thin-skinned to operate a blog and delete comments you disagree with. Anyway, VOTE YES! And enjoy the new airport ;)
