With continued work on behalf of MoveOn PAC to run “Leave No Voter Behind,” (LNVB). This was a “get out the vote” (GOTV) program intended to give Democratic candidate John Kerry an edge in the swing states. With continued work on behalf of MoveOnPAC in October 2004, they added 50,000 individuals canvassing their neighborhoods in 17 of the most contested swing states of the 2004 Presidential Election.
In 2006, Grassroots Campaigns again partnered with MoveOn.org to run Call for Change, the largest voter contact and get out the vote phonebank to date. Over 120 organizers in 40 cities nationwide recruited and trained over 100,000 volunteers who made more than 7 million phone calls to voters in the closest races of the midterm election.

Pay System for Canvassers
Grassroots Campaigns uses a quota system to pay its canvassers: “All canvassers are expected to raise at least 100% of the average [earned by all the canvassers in the office] or $135 per day, whichever is greater. Once quota is met, canvassers receive 30% (and in some cities this is 20%) of all funds raised over the week’s quota, as well as a base pay (which also depends upon the city). (Note: for single large contributions, the bonus is 30% (or 20%) up to $200, and 10% of anything above that. . . .) A canvasser who does not meet the quota in a week will not receive base pay, and will be paid minimum hourly wage for the hours worked.”
Too bad the IRS does not audit these crooks!
In Ohio, anti-fracking activists are being sought on Craigslist. It’s not a call to volunteers. Only paid activists seem motivated about the cause.
Another advantage of the Baraqqi “new normal”
Make the job market bad enough and you can hire some good talent cheap for the progressive struggle.
