Democrat campaign interns trying to unionize, demand $15 an hour minimum wage, plus health benefits, etc. By my reckoning, that would probably raise the going wage for door-knockers and ballot harvesters to more than 30 bucks, and that should cripple most campaigns, just as it cripples other small businesses.
