Speaking of minimum wage: GOP may oppose it, but they understand good employees deserve more

Posted By on Fri, Sep 5, 2014 at 7:00 AM

The Arkansas Republican Party, which includes few candidates who'll publicly express support for an increase in the minimum wage, apparently understands that better pay is essential to attracting good workers.

I got a copy of a solicitation from the GOP for part-time help in the runup to the election:

The Republican Party of Arkansas is hiring students to work from now until several days after the election in November.

Qualified candidates well be self-motivated and pay close attention to detail. Other qualifications include
· A comprehensive knowledge of Microsoft word and Microsoft Excel
· Strong organizational and interpersonal skills
· A strong interest in politics and campaigns

Students will work directly with experienced field staff and community leaders in South Arkansas.
Responsibilities include
· Staffing voter registration drives
· Training and recruiting volunteers
· Excel work
· Research
· Event building
· Making voter contacts

Hours are flexible; may work up to 50 hours per month. Pay is $9/hour.

Interested? Contact is Logan@ArkansasGOP.org.

Most Republicans oppose the minimum wage measure. Some, such as congressional candidate French Hill, oppose a minimum wage requirement period. If only all employers were so benevolent and all workers free to choose from a wide variety of jobs paying $9 an hour.
