Often it seems as though there is no end to the left’s hypocrisy. And, the farther the left, the more apparent the hypocrisy. Such is the case with the Freedom Socialist Party, a national party.
The Freedom Socialist Party has strong ties to Seattle. According to the party’s website, it actively campaigned for Kshama Sawant in her race for Seattle City Council. It “helped secure union endorsements and donations, and near support from the King County Labor Council…”
The Freedom Socialist Party does differ from Sawant in one respect. You see, for this particular socialist party, a $15 minimum wage is just not good enough. Its national party platform calls for full-time employment (no part-time jobs allowed) and a $20 per hour minimum wage for all people. However, by every indication, the Freedom Socialist Party believes that what its platform states, and even what it helped implement in Seattle ($15 minimum wage), does not apply to itself.
According to The Daily Caller, the Freedom Socialist Party recently placed a job opening ad on Indeed.com and Craigslist seeking a web content manager in Seattle. Interestingly enough, the position pays $13 per hour and is part-time.
The Freedom Socialist Party demands quite a lot from prospective applicants—including, ironically, proficiency in programs owned by multi-billion dollar companies. But, what really takes the cake is an addendum next to the $13 per hour compensation line that informs applicants of the possibility of more money “depending upon experience/skills.” In other words, if you are better at the job, you may get more money—though, we assume, not $20 per hour.
