Stuff the MSM doesn't bother to mention, but which is ideal for a "community organizer":
...According to a new analysis by the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor

their wage disparity was broader than we imagined.
Since 2009, when the recession deepened, median weekly wages for
full-time male workers have declined by 3.5 percent when adjusted for
But nearly 7 million Americans (6.8 million) who are looking for
full-time jobs have been forced to take part-time work. And they fell

Full-time workers between the ages of 16 and 19 earn 7.9 percent less
than people made in 2009, according to the BLS study. And young adults

workers needing full-time work, but taking these part-time jobs, has
increased 65 percent....
Lots of idle time, not enough money.
What more could a "community organizer" want??
