Republican Jewish Coalition Paying "Volunteers" With iPads, Gift Cards

Nice work if you can get it.

Posted on

The Republican Jewish Coalition is offering its volunteers incentives to continue to phone-bank, but unlike traditional gimmicks which provide hard-working supporters with special acces, the RJC is providing iPads and American Express gift cards.

According to an email to supporters, supporters of the RJC DC Chapter who make calls during designated phone-banks stand to earn:

—Phone-bank for 50+ hours and get an ipad3 (32 gig)

—Phone-bank for 40-49 hours and get an ipad 3 (16 gig)

—Phone-bank for 30-39 hours and get an iPad 2 (16 gig)

—Phone-bank for 20-29 hours and get a $100 AmEx gift card

RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said the arrangement is "not unusual at all."

"We really appreciate and are thankful for our volunteers," he said. "We wanted to do something special as a way to say thank you for all the time, hard work and effort they are putting into the effort to make an impact in the Jewish community. For people who put in lots of hours working to defeat President Obama and highlight the concerns about his failed mid-east policies this is a small token of our appreciation."
