FLASHBACK: Whole Foods Raises Minimum Wage to $15, Now Workers’ Hours Slashed (Details)

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.

Save conservative media!

Revealed: House Ethics Committee to Investigate Rashida Tlaib for Misusing Campaign Funds

It’s just Democrat after Democrat…

Freshman Democrat Socialist Rashida Tlaib (MI) could potentially be in big trouble. Even if she’s guilty, though, liberals will likely only give her a slap on the wrist and claim she’s the victim of a right-wing smear campaign. Until then, the openly anti-Semitic Muslim continues giving the American people plenty to think about. It’s just too bad the mainstream media will continue to give her a pass. From Fox News: The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses — and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process. The document dump was related to the committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.

Bill Clinton’s Advice to Trump: Ignore Impeachment, Pass Gun Control As Soon As Possible

Spoiler alert: it’s bad advice…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) said last night what all conservatives were thinking from the start: Democrats are looking to impeach President Trump because they know they can’t win in 2020. They are looking for any excuse to get him out of office, now that Russia and other hoaxes have failed. It’s truly stunning to witness how far the Democrat Party is willing to go to sabotage a duly-elected president in a time when unemployment is at an all-time low and the economy is thriving. Then again, this party is comprised of people who believe it’s acceptable, even cool, to murder a baby. Here’s impeached President Bill Clinton’s advice for Donald Trump. Spoiler alert: it’s not good advice. From Breitbart: On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s special coverage of the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, CA, former President Bill Clinton told President Donald Trump to ignore impeachment and pass gun control. Commenting on when the Republican-controlled House impeached him in 1998, Clinton said, “Look at how much we got done in 1998 and 1999 and even in ‘97. We had very productive actions in all three years. The only really tough year we had after the Republicans won the Congress, was ‘95 to the beginning of ‘96—when they shut the government down twice. Once the public rendered judgment on what they thought should be done, I kept working with them. That’s just an excuse.” Monica’s boyfriend added, “My message would be, look, you got hired to do a job. Every day’s an opportunity to make something good happen. And I would say, I’ve got lawyers and staff people handling this impeachment inquiry, and they should just have at it. Meanwhile, I’m going to work for the American people. That’s what I would do.” Hillary Clinton probably won’t run for…
