The Democratic Socialists of America, one of AOC’s favorite political organizations, is facing a serious financial crunch and may have to lay people off.
Who knew that socialists would have such a hard time managing funds? It looks like they finally ran out of other people’s money.
Of course, this could have something to do with the insane pro-Hamas demonstrations that many of their members have participated in in recent months.
The New York Post reports:
Democratic Socialists face seven-figure ‘crisis’ amid Palestinian support that may force dreaded layoffs of staff
The Democratic Socialists of America are red all over — with a financial situation so dire that some leaders are demanding job cuts and the layoff of staffers just like a corporate America entity, The Post has learned.
The DSA — which has led protests against Israel over the Jewish state’s retaliatory response to Hamas’ Oct. 7 terror attack — is deep in a seven-figure hole and desperately in need of a way to stanch the red ink, members acknowledge.
“We will cut $500,000 from staff-related expenses. We will first ask for volunteers from both director-level and bargaining unit staff to have their position cut and receive severance,” according to a proposal advanced by members of DSA’s National Political Committee affiliated with its Marxist Bread and Roses caucus.
“If necessary, we will then explore initiating lay-offs according to the DSA union’s contract,” the DSA officers said.
The situation appears to be a case of an organization that blindly seeks utopia and professes support of the working class clashing with reality — forcing it to have to balance a budget like the rest of America and even contemplate layoffs hated by labor unions.
