Bloomberg staff get iPhone11 + MacBook Pro + 3 meals on FIRST day

Lion Heart

Every Bloomberg staffer gets a MacBook Pro and an iPhone 11 on day one. They also enjoy three catered meals daily.

A communications staffer for another presidential contender was approached by a Bloomberg campaign employee within the last few weeks with an enticing offer.

“She let me know I was definitely going to get double digits per month,” the communications aide told The Post.

But she decided to stay put, calling the offer “aggressive and excessive.”

"Usually the process is you apply or someone approaches you because of a connection. This was very much how much they’re offering, this is the going rate, do you want this or not?

She also turned down the job because she doesn’t think Bloomberg can buy his way to victory.

“I think at the end of the day support is just not there and no matter how much money you have you can’t manufacture enthusiasm and excitement,” the communications aide said.

Experts say that Bloomberg, who is worth an estimated $50 billion, could spend as much as $1 billion on his 2020 run.

A second woman who interviewed with the Bloomberg campaign for an assistant level position that paid $70,000– nearly double her current salary as a Democratic staffer– said she was greeted with a “hotel-style buffet” at the interview.

“The salary would have been life-changing,” the recent college grad gushed to The Post.

“I would have my student loans paid off within this calendar year, I would have paid off my credit card debt, the three meals a day– it’s not something you think will ever be an option to you if you’re a young staffer,” she said.

She ultimately turned the job down.

“I’m declining it because Bloomberg isn’t my candidate at the end of the day. I’m an Elizabeth Warren supporter and really the reason I came so close to working for Bloomberg was the benefits and the salary and the perks that were evident from the moment you walk in,” she said.

Stu Loeser, a Bloomberg spokesman, defended the pay and perks.

“We’ve put together an amazingly strong team that every day is getting closer to beating Donald Trump, and we are happy to pay staff well to do that,” Loeser said.

I-

I mean, its a *good* thing on paper that he's paying them so well and that's good for those people, but this is also kind of a testament to the greed of many CEOs and billionaires that are business people.

If its a campaign for something like a presidency or marketing to make more money and increase influence, they are willing to pay them beaucoup bucks,  but if it's being an actual worker producing your goods... its starvation wages :deadbanana: 

“I would have my student loans paid off within this calendar year, I would have paid off my credit card debt, the three meals a day– it’s not something you think will ever be an option to you if you’re a young staffer,” she said."

Like, this just feels exploitative in intention, and emblematic of a larger problem that we aren't really ready to discuss (*cough* Capitalism *cough*). 

That being said, wow @ this woman's integrity... The offer must be incredibly tempting, and TBH I can't say I would turn it down. Like, can't I phone bank for Bernie AND be a Bloomberg staffer? :giveup:

This doesn't make any sense. Of course, you can get ritzy stuff if you are qualified  enough to be on his team. They don't hand out iPhones to just anyone, which what socialists believe should be the case.

Bloomberg donates a lot of money, billions to a lot of causes, political or not. He was one of the top donors who helped democrats take back the House in 2018. He also pledged that even if he doesnt win, he will spend one billion to make the future democratic nominee president, no matter who is it. 

He is also proud to pay his taxes and says that the correct way is to make all top companies pay their share of the taxes. He plans to release his tax returns if he will get the nominee.

So I only see this story as hate against a billionaire because he is a billionaire, which is very bad.

So you didn't read where I said that "this feels exploitative" or anything else? :rip: 

It's hate against a system where people who have all the money and resources can selectively decide or decline to pay their employees well or not. Like, if they want you to starve to save money, they can. And if they want to entice people, they can do that as well. That's too much power over people's lives IMO.

Also... plenty of billionaires will admit to "being okay with paying more in taxes" or even "eventually giving away a %age of my wealth!"

Meanwhile, many of those people in the same breath  don't stop taking advantage of tax loopholes, and also don't support a wealth tax like :deadbanana: 

It's because they want to voluntarily give smaller amounts of money out to specific causes, rather than paying their fair share in taxes respective to their income like the rest of America, to be used for causes that would empower all 350 million people in America.

It's greed masquerading as kindness.
