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 . . .
