LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
The Washington Times is reporting that there are job ads running in 20 cities which are in search of agitators to demonstrate at this week’s presidential inauguration events, with the pay being as much as $2,500.
Demand Protest, the San Francisco based protest organization that self identifies as “largest private grassroots support organization in the United States,” is running identical ads in multiple cities on the site Backpage.com seeking to pay “operatives.”
“Get paid fighting against Trump!” says the ad.
The ad reads:
Demand Protest is the largest private grassroots support organization in the United States. 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!
We are currently seeking operatives to help send a strong message at upcoming inauguration protests.
PLEASE NOTE: You will be required to attend an in-person workshop and sign our standard non-disclosure agreement.
As a Demand Protest operative you will receive a monthly retainer of $2,500 on top of our standard per-event pay of $50/hr, as long as you participate in at least 6 events a year. We are extremely flexible and can work with almost any existing work schedule. Full-time operatives receive health, vision and dental insurance for families, flexible vacations, and paid trainings. Travel expenses are always paid.
All operatives have access to our 24/7 phone helpdesk in addition to in-person support at events.
