Original Message Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has advocated for a $15 minimum wage and more unionization for years. He’s also put his money where his mouth is, by becoming the first presidential campaign to unionize and pay his workers at least $15 an hour.

Shakir also told Newsweek that the campaign had offered to give filed organizers a raise – to $42,000 annually, but the offer was rejected because staffers would have had to work six days a week. That salary also would have forced them “to pay more of their own health care costs,” Newsweek reported.

The Des Moines Register reported that Sanders complained that staffers were going to the press instead of keeping their concerns internal.
