If Senator Elizabeth Warren were to become President Elizabeth Warren, I’m sure every American would be obliged to sign one of these.
This factoid comes packaged in a larger story about Warren’s expected efforts to get the most work out of people while paying them the least amount of money. Lefties who rant about corporate abuses, invariably replicate even worse versions of those abuses in their workplaces.
Prior to orientation, Nendze said he was told multiple times that an organizer would get back to him about possible payment. “I was getting super-concerned,” Nendzes said. “I had no information about where to go, if I was being paid. If they had told me upfront that I was unpaid, maybe I would have been able to prepare better.”
Ultimately, Nendze was offered a position as a volunteer fellow. As part of the on-boarding process, he was sent a mandatory non-disclosure agreement—to sign upon accepting the offer and passing the campaign’s vetting process—stating that volunteer fellows would “not communicate with any member of the press” or “make any statement that may impair or otherwise adversely affect the goodwill or reputation” of Warren for President Inc., among other provisions.
The Campaign Workers Guild, a group focused on improving working conditions on campaigns, said providing NDAs to unpaid volunteers on campaigns is not a common practice, though it occasionally happens in large-scale races. Former Vice President Joe Biden, one of the only Democratic 2020 campaigns to offer a similar unpaid fellowship program, does not require volunteer fellows to sign NDAs, a campaign official confirmed.
Count on America’s favorite asbestos lawyer and a wonderful human being to make people sign an agreement that they won’t adversely affect her reputation.
