Protesters at Fridays Occupy CPAC event, organized by AFL-CIO and the Occupy DC movement, told The Daily Caller that they were paid sixty bucks a head to protest outside the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.
One protester told TheDC that all the Occupy activists were being paid to protest, and that his union, Sheet Metal Workers Local 100, approached him about the money-making opportunity.
I have nothing nice to say about Local 100.
They just told me you wanna make sixty bucks? So cmon, the protester said.
Other Occupy CPAC protesters were unwilling to speak on camera because they were unaware what they were protesting and what the CPAC event was about.

Job 1 of any new GOP president in 2013 must be finally enforcing the law against union dues being used for political purposes. I think it's the Beck decision that lead to such restrictions. Democrats, and yes even Republicans, have refused to enforce this law. These shennigans with the union thugs and the OWS trash show the absolute need to get these laws in force again.

Sheesh, that’s pretty cheap...shouldn’t they be paid at least minimum wage, or maybe whatever, ‘living wage’ is? And benefits? And free tootsie rolls, blankies, and all the perks that most preschoolers receive?
Wouldn’t want to be exploiting anyone now...

If they don’t know what they;’re protesting, they should read their signs. Sheesh.
