WASHINGTON, D.C. – According to the left-wing Daily Beast, campaign staffers who are “people of color” routinely get paid less than their white, “non color” counterparts, and are often given less glamorous jobs.

chessAn analysis by the New Organizing Institute found that Asian, Black, and Latino campaign staffers are paid less than their white counterparts – especially by Democrats.

For example, African-American staffers on Democrat campaigns were paid 70 cents for each dollar their white counterparts made. For Hispanic staffers in Democrat campaigns, the figure was 68 cents on the dollar.

And a recent study by PowerPAC+, funded by a major Democratic donor, revealed that less than 2 percent of spending by Democrat campaign committees during the past two election cycles went to firms owned by minorities.
