President-elect Donald Trump has often pointed out that protesters were reportedly being paid for attending and disrupting his functions.
Recently there have been job ads posted in over 20 different cities that offer $ 2,500 a month plus $ 50.00 an hour for attending at least 6 events per year.
The Washington Times reported that Demand Protest, a San Francisco company claiming to be the “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” posted identical ads Jan. 12th in multiple cities on Backpage.com seeking “operatives.”
The ad’s headline was “Get Paid Fighting Against Trump“.
The ad went on to explain what they offer and expect for their money:
“We pay people already politically motivated to fight for the things they believe. You were going to take action anyways, why not do so with us!” the ad continues. “We are currently seeking operatives to help send a strong message at upcoming inauguration protests. The job offers a monthly retainer of $2,500 plus “our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year,” as well as health, vision and dental insurance for full-time operatives.”
President-elect Trump had complained about paid activists during his 2016 presidential campaign.
The Washington Times reported:
If the Demand Protest ads are ruses, however, someone has gone to a great deal of trouble to sell the scam. The classifieds are running in at least two dozen cities, including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas and Houston, and the company operates a slick website that includes contact information.
