A Boston-based company that provides thousands of workers to solicit door-to-door for donations to the Democratic National Committee and other causes has been sued for overtime wage violations for allegedly working its staff 14-hours a day. The suit, filed in federal court in San Francisco earlier this month, accused Grassroots Campaigns, Inc. of overworking mostly college students long hours, seven days a week gathering petition signatures and donations for Democratic candidates and groups like Moveon.org. “It’s ironic that a company that bills itself as a champion of the progressive movement would treat its own employees so badly,” said Robert S. Nelson, of the Nelson Law Group, a San Bruno, Calif. firm that filed the class action on behalf of at least a half-dozen former employees. A spokesman for Grassroots Campaigns in Washington, D.C., did not return a call for comment.
