It is almost comical how often union hypocrisy is on full display, while unionistas don’t even notice, or simply turn a blind eye. In the latest example, the alt-labor organization Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC) wants to hire someone to spearhead its campaign to raise the minimum wage for tipped workers. The ads for the position specify “an experienced legislative advocate [who will] live and breathe this campaign from now until the end of the New York State legislative session,” yet also specify that the worker will be an independent contractor, not an employee.
The ROC has railed against businesses that consider workers as independent contractors. Once again, “Do as I say, not as I do.”
