The chief organizer for the “Fight for $15” minimum-wage movement isn’t an fast food worker, but a well-paid labor union activist – according to a breaking story in The Daily Caller.
“No I’m not,” Kendall Fells said when asked by journalists if he was paid to attend the “March on McDonald’s” that he himself organized this week in Chicago.
But as it turns out, Fells is paid very handsomely for his activities.
Fells was repudiated than $146,000 in 2016 by the liberal Service Employees International Union, according to documents SEIU has filed with the Department of Labor.
The protest-leader was hesitant to answer any questions about funding for the event, and seemed uncomfortable providing any details about himself.
When the camera focused on a shot of his face, Fells put his hands up and asked not to be recorded.
