Ever wonder where all of those union organizers come from? How do they get people with jobs to show up to their rallies? It's easy when showing up to the rally IS their job.
Well, paying people to "organize" the "field" is one way to have people show up. You have to admire the balls required to be hiring people at $11 bucks an hour to organize protests against unfair wages---in a country that pays many employees twice that rate per hour.
