Ex-field or­ga­nizer sues Bloomberg cam­paign

The Kansas City Star - - News - — NEW YORK TIMES

Donna Wood, a former field or­ga­nizer in Mi­ami for Michael Bloomberg, filed a pro­posed clas­s­ac­tion law­suit against his pres­i­den­tial cam­paign Mon­day, ar­gu­ing that she and thou­sands of oth­ers laid off this month had been tricked into tak­ing jobs they were told would last until Novem­ber.

The law­suit, filed in fed­eral court in New York City, ar­gued that the cam­paign had breached its con­tract with the atwill em­ploy­ees, re­cruit­ing them to work on Bloomberg’s bid un­der false pre­tenses and fail­ing to pay them nec­es­sary over­time. A spokes­woman for the cam­paign de­clined to com­ment on Mon­day.
