And so it begins?

From a story linked at Drudge concerning Obama get-out-the-vote volunteers not getting paid exactly what they (thought?) they were promised:
"It should have been $480. It's $230," said Imani Sankofa.


"They gave us $10 an hour. So we added it. I added up all the hours so it was supposed to be at least $120. All I get is $90," said Charles Martin.

"I worked nine hours a day for 4 days and got paid half of what I should have earned," said Randall Waldon.


Get used to it.

Maybe it's a windfall profit tax. Why should the greedy campaigners benefit from a sudden and unexpected increase in the demand for campaigning?
