Donald Trump is running his campaign exactly like his businesses, meaning he's funneling proceeds to his family and not paying his employees.
The Trump campaign has not spent nearly as much money as it has raised and one reason why is because he isn't paying all of his staffers. At least 10 of his former staff members haven't been paid and it seems fairly clearly that some of them didn't know they would never be paid.
The Trump campaign said the Reuters' reporting was "sloppy at best" but declined to elaborate.
One of the 10 who were unpaid, Michael Caputo, told a Buffalo radio station in June after he resigned from the campaign, that he was not volunteering. Rather, he said he just had not gotten paid. Caputo confirmed to Reuters on Thursday that the Trump campaign has still not paid his invoices.
To put this in perspective, 10 staffers would account for nearly a third of his entire campaign. We don't know how many staffers Trump has right now, but at one point over the Summer he had less than 30.
If I were Caputo or any of these other staffers, I wouldn't hold my breath in anticipation.
The Trump campaign has opened a handful of field offices in several states, but as far as we know they're staffed entirely by volunteers, if at all. If you want to volunteer to work at one of these offices, you'll need to sign an NDA that prohibits you from ever speaking out against the Trumps.
