It looks like people with no real interest in Bloomberg are signing up to be grassroots campaigners because he pays $2,500 a month

More than 500 social-media campaigners in California are being offered $2,500 a month to spread Mike Bloomberg’s message as “deputy field operatives.”

However, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times, the small slice of the candidate’s vast personal fortune has not ensured the operatives’ dedication or loyalty.

The newly formed social-media army has been tasked with spending 20 to 30 hours a week on text messages, phone calls, and social-media posts geared toward leveraging their personal networks to secure Bloomberg’s victory in California’s Democratic primary.
