Funny how that works, huh??

The “Fight for $15” hourly minimum wage argument will soon morph into the “Fight for 15 Hours” campaign if Democrats don’t get their act together.

When the minimum wage goes up, businesses are forced to cut workers’ hours, stop hiring altogether, and/or raise prices on consumers.

It’s honestly that simple.

From Daily Wire:

The dream of the $15 minimum wage was finally realized among Amazon employees after the company caved to mounting pressure and implemented it company-wide on Nov. 1. But according to a new report, the improved wages aren’t working out as many employees had hoped at Amazon’s Whole Foods grocery store chain.

The Guardian reported Wednesday that employees at Whole Foods, which Amazon purchased back in 2017, have experienced a dramatic drop in schedule shifts since the raised wages were introduced.

Along with the new $15 minimum wage for the entry-level positions, some higher-level Whole Foods employees have also enjoyed a $1 to $2 increase in hourly wages, the outlet notes. It all sounds good — until employees’ schedules are taken into account. Since the wage increase in November, Whole Foods employees say they’ve experienced “widespread cuts that have reduced schedule shifts across many stores, often negating wage gains for employees,” The Guardian reports.

Speaking of a $15 minimum wage, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is all in.

Democrat Congressman Gregory Meeks (NY) went on CNN to tell the nation that the 2020 presidential candidate should not be running as a Democrat.

His reasoning is simple and it makes all the sense in the world. Bernie is not a Democrat.

He’s a Democrat Socialist.

Although small, there is, technically, a difference.

WATCH:

Voters were asked about the self-described Democrat Socialist, but things didn’t go Bernie’s way.

One man said, “I can’t stop laughing.”

I can’t stop laughing … it’s a gift to the Republican Party and Trump. They’re so out of touch with reality, they’re selling kool-aid, they’ve been doing it on the campuses for years and now it’s spread out and they have this utopian idea of ‘everything is wonderful’ … people don’t get it, it doesn’t work.

WATCH:

Bernie calls for the rich to fork over their cash in order to be redistributed, yet forgets he’s a member of the 1%.

He’s also big into “saving” the planet, yet has no problem flying private.

The list could go on for a while.

Sanders is a good Democrat. He says everything necessary to get the uninformed riled up.

He doesn’t need facts. Facts are irrelevant.

For example, speaking from a stage in South Carolina on MLK Day, Sanders said the unthinkable about President Trump.

WATCH:

Sanders: “It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist.

Boy Scouts Now Forcing Kids to Earn ‘Diversity’ Badge Featuring Anti-White Training

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that scouts will now have to earn a “diversity and inclusion” badge.

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that scouts will now have to earn a “diversity and inclusion” badge pushing the radical gay/transgender agenda with training that will include anti-white courses to be able to earn Eagle Scout status. The Boy Scouts long ago went full woke, but this new “diversity” badge amps that up to full speed. The BSA added that it will include information about George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor in its indoctrination of boys and girls. In its announcement, the organization insisted that it “has not been as brave as we should have been” to address evil white supremacy. Oh, but to put up at ease, the BSA insisted this isn’t about left-wing politics… even though it is. “The Boy Scouts of America stands with Black families and the Black community because we believe that Black Lives Matter,” the organization said in a letter on the BSA’s blog, Scoutingwire. “This is not a political issue; it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address.” For some inexplicable reason, the BSA also reiterated that it stands against Civil War history, too, in order to “ensure that symbols of oppression are not in use today or in the future.” “We will also continue to listen more, learn more and do more to promote a culture in which every person feels that they belong, are respected and are valued in Scouting, in their community and across America,” the scouting organization added. Then there is the Scouts’ gay problem. As CNN noted, “Court testimony released last year shows that over 7,800 former scout leaders are accused of sexually abusing 12,000 scouts over 72 years.” Seriously, America, if you haven’t removed your children from the Boy Scouts already, now is the time. It is…

New York Gay Pride Parade’s ‘Shameful’ Ban of Gay Police Officers

The New York City Police union is blasting the city’s gay pride parade officials for banning gay police officers.

The New York City Police union is blasting the city’s gay pride parade officials for banning gay police officers from participating in the event. Detective Brian Downey, the president of the New York Police Department’s Gay Officers Action League slammed the New York City Pride Parade’s decision to un-invite gay police officers. “Their response to activist pressure is to take the low road by preventing their fellow community members from celebrating their identities and honoring the shared legacy of the Stonewall Riots,” Detective Downey said, according to Fox News. The detective also said it was “demoralizing” for the pride parade to ban gay cops. He also attacked the pride officials for calling his men “law enforcement exhibitors” instead of referring to them as New York Police officers. “The idea of officers being excluded is disheartening and runs counter to our shared values of inclusion and tolerance,” Detective Sophia Mason added. “That said, we’ll still be there to ensure traffic safety and good order during this huge, complex event.” The gay Fire Department group also slammed the pride organization’s exclusion of the police. “The sense of safety that law enforcement is meant to provide can instead be threatening, and at times dangerous, to those in our community who are most often targeted with excessive force and/or without reason,” the pride group said in a statement. The pride parade will still be held only online this year due to New York’s continued wild panic over the coronavirus. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
