AFL-CIO Paying Occupy Protesters $60/HR to Demonstrate……

3 May

Protesters at Friday’s “Occupy CPAC” demonstration, organized by AFL-CIO and the Occupy DC movement, told The Daily Caller that they were paid “sixty bucks a head” to protest outside the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. One protester said that his union, the Sheet Metal Workers Local 100, approached him about the financially lucrative scheme and added that all the Occupiers present at the CPAC event were being paid to demonstrate. “I have nothing nice to say about Local 100. … They just told me ‘you wanna make sixty bucks? So c’mon,’” the protester said during the interview. According to DC, other Occupiers were unwilling to speak on camera because they were not only unaware what they were protesting but also had no clue what CPAC was even about.
