Obama campaign workers angry over unpaid wages

a day late and a dollar short

The cartoon was inspired by this article.

Lines were long and tempers flared Wednesday not to vote but to get paid for canvassing for Barack Obama. Several hundred people are still waiting to get their pay for last-minute campaigning.


"I worked nine hours a day for 4 days and got paid half of what I should have earned," said Randall Waldon.

Heh. Now why does that sound familiar? Maybe Randall Waldon will be voting Republican the next time around? Somehow I doubt that.

To be fair, the article has since been updated.
Indianapolis - The Obama campaign says most of the payment issues that brought hundreds of upset campaign workers to the Indianapolis office Wednesday have been resolved.

Provided that is true, it still does not take away from Randall's priceless quote. Explain to me again how it is OK to take someone's hard earned money? Don't be selfish.

Hat tip to Rachel Lucas, once again.
