It seems that the lead organiser of the “fight for $15” group has been lying to not only other campaigners but everyone who watches their escapades. Kendall Fells works directly for the Unions and is not, in fact, the fast-food worker he claimed to be. In fact, he gets almost $150,000 a year to protest.
This is not the only protestor who is directly paid for their actions. Many people involved in the anti-Trump rallies are fully paid to be there (including expenses).
While this is not in any way a crime, it is a lie. Even though the intention of the lie is to get Globalist corporations to pay their workers more, we are still being lied to. They are feeding us a narrative that does not reflect reality and trying to get us to act on their behalf through this narrative.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
The lead organizer for the “Fight for $15” movement isn’t an underpaid fast food worker, but rather a well-paid labor union activist.
“No I’m not,” Kendall Fells said when asked by researchers with conservative nonprofit America Rising Squared if he was paid to attend the “March on McDonald’s” he organized this week in Chicago. As it turns out, though, Fells is paid for his activist activities — and he gets paid a lot.
Fells was paid more than $146,000 in 2016 by the left-wing Service Employees International Union (SEIU), according to documents SEIU filed with the Department of Labor. Fells is listed as SEIU’s “deputy organizing director.” He is currently “on loan” to the “Fight for $15” campaign from SEIU, Fox Business reported on Wednesday.
