One big Democrat went back on his word and fired his workers without warning.
He had the money to pay them in his pocket.
A top Democrat betrayed his employees in the middle of the coronavirus crisis.
Michael Bloomberg is insanely wealthy.
His personal fortune is bigger than the GDP of many countries on the planet.
Mike Bloomberg has more money than any one person could spend in a lifetime.
He spent nearly a Billion dollars on his failed primary run. Hillary Clinton spent less than $600 million on the general election in 2016.
But since Mike Bloomberg is worth $52.4 billion he could afford to drop a billion dollars on a presidential bid that went nowhere.
Mike Bloomberg ended up spending 20 million per delegate he got.
The problem that Mike Bloomberg had, swooping in at last moment with all his money was the perception that he was trying buy his way into the nomination.
Bloomberg had highly effective staff but he didn’t have a motivated base. Most of the internet influencers who supported Mike Bloomberg were paid for their endorsement.
Mike Bloomberg was willing to shell out the money when he had a shot at the nomination but now he’s gone back on his word and is being tight fisted.
He’s firing his employees even though they were hired with the understanding that they would have a job until after the general election in November.
According to the Daily Wire:
Ex-campaign staffers are blasting Michael Bloomberg for reversing his position that his campaign would offer competitive salaries and benefits until the November election, regardless of whether the former mayor became the Democratic presidential nominee.
The New York Times reports that the campaign has since decided to shut down operations, send $18 million to the Democratic National Committee, and instruct the more than 1,500 recently fired employees to apply to the DNC for new jobs.
The now-defunct Bloomberg campaign has also instructed ex-staffers they will be “fed into a competitive hiring process,” and are not guaranteed a job, reports the news agency.
“I’m so sorry I worked for this guy. I thought he was totally different,” said former field organizer Jane Conrad, who the news agency reports was recruited to the campaign. “He took me out of my job for his own gain.”
About a dozen other ex-staffers told the Times that they were drawn to the Bloomberg campaign because of the job security and benefits, and were scared to speak out publicly because they were temporarily still on his payroll.
Bloomberg would never feel it if he paid his employees for the time that he promised.
It’s a spiteful move after an embarrassing waste of money.
There are families he promised employment to that are without insurance in a job market that’s really scarce on jobs as the coronavirus shuts everything down.
It’s shameful for Bloomberg to treat his employees this way.
His campaign was a political failure, this shows his failure of character.
Mike Bloomberg’s entire primary performance has been a disaster.
