As protesters waited at locations across the country for President Trump to announce his nomination for Supreme Court Justice, many on social media were saying these people needed to simply, get a job. It is surprising to see that a good number of people believe these protesters are average citizens either taking time off work or are unemployed and just have the time to go out and protest.
Those of us, who have followed politics for many years, however, know that to today’s US protesters, this is their job. Unlike past street demonstrators of the 1960s and 1970s, who’d gathered to protest the Vietnam War and the US government based solely on their strong beliefs, today’s public displays of violence and civil unrest are totally carried out by well-organized businesses that have thousands of members and hire people as professional protesters. Thus, we have a massive employment sector of individuals who wake up every morning and prepare to go to work in their profession as protesters, just like the rest of us who do the same at our legitimate jobs.
The hours can be a bit rough for the employees of the protest industry as you are required to work at various hours of a 24 hour period, sometimes having to attend multi protests per day, or participating in sit-ins that may last a week or more.
The pay isn’t that bad for an average protester who makes anywhere from $15.00 to $20.00 per hour. One can move up in the company as well, based on loyalty, promptness, and the willingness to go beyond the call of duty by engaging in physical confrontations, these employees can earn as much as $1,500 a week.
It may surprise you to know that employees of the protest industry also get company benefits, such as health insurance, 401Ks, and various retirement plans, like the rest of us.
Since Organizing For Action is the literal corporate headquarters from which all other splinter protest groups like BLM and ANTIFA are a part, we see that literally over a million people are employed in the protest industry. Since Barack Obama founded OFA, along with financing from George Soros, we know who is the president of the company and where it gets its money.
In a way, Obama was right in saying he created all the jobs he claimed he did. He did so by creating a totally new industry in America: the business of political protesting.
