City With the Country’s Highest Minimum Wage Is LAYING OFF Workers Left & Right [Details]

Who called it? Did you?

Who saw this coming?

Probably every single conservative from sea to shining sea, that’s who.

It only makes sense. When the minimum wage is on the rise businesses will be forced to cut workers’ hours, stop hiring altogether, and/or go out of business – all the while raising prices on goods.

You’d never guess, but businesses in the city with the highest minimum wage in the United States are laying off workers.

Emeryville, California, with a population of 12,000, hometown of Pixar Animation Studios, features a minimum wage of $16.50 an hour, which is almost double what it was five years ago. The Wall Street Journal notes “the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment is $2,840, the median home price is more than $560,000, and a salad costs more than $15.”

Various business owners have had to lay off workers because of the city’s minimum wage; Marcos Quezada of Patatas Neighborhood Kitchen recently laid of 60% of his ten-person staff. He told the Journal of the minimum wage hike, “I just didn’t see how I was going to survive it.” Erik Hansen, the owner of Moomie’s, said he could either raise sandwich prices by up to $1.50 or lay off one of his three workers.

So ridiculous.

It could not be easier to defeat a liberal argument.

All you have to do is use their own words against them.

For example, Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is upset that she had to pay $7 for a croissant – as anyone would be.

But how is it so hard for AOC to see why she’s paying $7?

A basic lesson in economics should have Ocasio-Cortez understanding that when minimum wages rise, so do the costs of goods.

Hasn’t she ever heard of supply and demand?

Of course, raising the minimum wage also forces businesses to cut back workers’ hours and/or sttop hiring altogether, but, shhh! Alexandria doesn’t want to hear that!

And yet, AOC still calls for a $15 minimum wage.

Look:

Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE ????

Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??

Reactions:

AOC then fired off another tweet after being resoundingly mocked, as per usual…

GOP taking every tweet so earnestly, making my point for me. It’s not an argument against the price of a croissant – it’s about the value of human worth.

But I guess that idea is foreign to them since their policies treat people as disposable anyway ????????‍♀️

And the reaction that wins the day…

KILLSHOT!

Save conservative media!

Alyssa Milano Attempts To Make Peace With Trump Supporters, But Things Don’t Go As Planned

Published

on

After months and months of condemning President Donald Trump , his administration, and his supporters, hardcore leftist actress and activist Alyssa Milano attempted to extend an “olive branch” to folks who backed the president. However, things didn’t quite go as she planned. In fact, people let her know that they weren’t going to have anything to do with her or her olive branch. And who can blame them? It’s insulting to be treated like garbage and then expected to make peace after Milano gets her way. “I’d like to extend an olive branch to Trump supporters. I am ready to move #ForwardTogether,” Milano tweeted out to her 3.7 million followers. “There’s so much work to do to heal the nation. Let’s be a part of the solution and not add to the problems we face. My comments are open. Please reply with #ForwardTogether,” she said, adding a heart emoji, because that just makes it all better. https://twitter.com/Alyssa_Milano/status/1331330446458638336 https://twitter.com/Alyssa_Milano/status/1331372139878907906 via Fox News: Trump supporters were quick to react to Milano’s offering on Monday, and a majority did not meet her with kind words in return. Several balked at the star’s approach, calling it a “joke” after her several outcries for Trump to be ripped from office. “I remember you. You were the one glaring at Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his hearings. You were the one that called conservatives every name in the book and didn’t sensor your words in the least. No way you’d be offering an olive branch had your party lost … How about NO,” one person reacted. Another wrote: “I’m too lazy to read the comments but I suspect this yielded exactly zero Trump supporters to take your olive branch.” “This has to be another sick joke what has happened to you? four years of the most insane…

Computer Repair Shop Owner Who Surrendered Alleged Hunter Biden Laptop Received Death Threats

Published

The computer repair shop owner who is responsible for turning over the damaged laptop hard drive that might have belonged to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, has decided to close down his shop after receiving death threats. Gee, that doesn’t seem like a good show of “tolerance” now does it? A person run out of business for doing the right thing and helping to expose the dark deeds of a crooked politician and his twisted family. via Daily Wire: A sign posted on John Mac Isaac’s Trolley Square store ten days after the election said it was closed, a neighbor claiming that the owner had left town. Mac Isaac’s lawyer, Brian Della Rocca, confirmed to the Delaware News Journal that Mac Isaac had closed the shop, but did not say whether his client had left town. He did claim that his client had received death threats. Della Rocca told the Journal that his office had communicated with Wilmington FBI agents and Delaware’s Assistant United States Attorney Leslie Wolf about the situation, saying, “I’ve been in touch with federal law enforcement, yes.” The hard drive triggered a firestorm after The New York Post published a story on the alleged contents of the drive, which had been given to Rudy Giuliani. The story claimed that emails on the laptop showed that when Joe Biden served as vice president in 2015, he met with an executive from Burisma Holdings while Hunter Biden had been employed by Burisma. That claim was vehemently denied by the Biden campaign. Democrats deflected when asked about the laptop, often falling back on the trusty Russia narrative by claiming the hard drive was part of some sort of disinformation campaign from the country, as if they were once again poking their nose in our election. Death threats…
