You admit rj calls his employees "dead end people" while simultaneously sticking up for him? Wow.
There is no such person as Karl Novotny. This is rj! What a joke! I've worked at the TOP the entire time rj worked there and there has never been a person with this name. And this person uses the exact same rhetoric as rj to a t. Its pretty frustrating when you can have someone come on here with a fake name and spread lies.
So you can see how easy it would be for the Fund to manipulate the numbers and lists they're calling and then fire someone for not meeting their fundraising quota.
As far as the union not stepping up for these poor mistreated women, most of them don't work at the fund any more. The one that filed the suit still does and she took matters into her own hands and filed the suit.
That being said, it's not like Referd Raley is some sort of horrible sex predator. Yes, he's done some shady things, but all the incidents I'm aware of were with with consenting adults and were more of a harassing nature. A couple good examples is when he told people he slept with two different girls that he hadn't and told people that an older gal he actually was sleeping with was basically date raping him regularly via alcohol. Defaming all three woman to boost his "bro-status" .
OSHA is no longer aloud to mandate ergonomic chairs. Only advise.
As far as the lists go you obviously have no idea how our call center operates. We switch lists constantly. The list I call is changed 20-30 times a day. Sometimes I'll call a list for 2 minutes before I look back up at the screen and I've "rolled" to another list. These lists get old and eventually only consist of members that haven't answered their phone 15-20 times. You can imagine how angry people can be when they finally answer their phone after ignoring the same # for weeks. Some lists are filled with people who have only given a donation once, and five years ago. Some lists are filled with people who give a donation every time we call. We have different "quotas" or expectations for each list. Some lists have more realistic quotas than others. There are also lists within lists. Like people who never give with credit card vs people who always do. You're not only paid based on how much you raise per contact but also if they give on credit card or require you mail them a pledge envelope.
I doubt the AFL-CIO's workers spend 8 hours on stackable conference chairs in a basement with no windows and get fired for 2 weeks (which can actually amount to 4 working days if you're part time) of bad fundraising even if you've worked there for a decade. And i doubt they ever took ergonomic chairs away and replaced them with stackable chairs after a union vote and required a doctors note to bring in your own chairs while the directors spin around on their adjustable ergonomic chairs laughing about it. Cause that's what is happening at the Fund's Portland phone banking office. I work there currently.
