IT BEGINS: Whole Foods Raises Minimum Wage to $15, Now Workers’ Hours Slashed

They NEVER learn! Now, this happens…

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.

More from The Guardian:

The labor budget and schedule cuts at Whole Foods in the wake of the minimum wage increase appear to be similar to changes Amazon made after it raised the pay of warehouse workers to a minimum wage of $15 an hour. That move was widely praised but Amazon also cut stock vesting plans and bonuses that had provided extra pay to some workers.

Some Whole Foods workers say the cuts have led to understaffing issues. “Things that have made it more noticeable are the long lines, the need to call for cashier and bagging assistance, and customers not being able to find help in certain departments because not enough are scheduled, and we are a big store,” said one worker in California.

“Just about every person on our team has complained about their hours being cut. Some have had to look for other jobs as they can’t make ends meet,” they added.

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!

Watch: Bernie Supporters Intimidate & Harass Dem Candidate, Swarm Her Car – ‘Block Her In’

Just brutal!

Bernie Sanders supporters are the kindest, most gracious human beings on the face of the planet – said nobody ever. Time and again, these people have shown that they are dangerous. Here’s just the latest example of their extremism, via Washington Examiner: A group of Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters attempted to intimidate an Illinois Democratic congressional candidate into supporting the socialist’s agenda. The Vermont senator’s supporters on Monday live-streamed their activity on social media while Betsy Dirksen Londrigan concluded a campaign appearance in Champaign, Illinois. Following the event, the group challenged Londrigan to debate Illinois socialist candidate Stefanie Smith. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVlw_z05lzY&feature=emb_logo Sanders supporters are low-information voters. Who’da thunk? From Daily Wire: It turns out, the less you pay attention to politics, the more likely you are to support the socialist option for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

He makes it clear that he’s a full-on socialist and he’s not ashamed of it – for whatever reason. If president, the 2020 hopeful says private insurance companies will go bye-bye and you will certainly pay more in taxes. Bernie noted, “What Medicare For All does is it eliminates your private health insurance…premiums. You’re not going to be paying that. You’re not going to be paying co-payments. You’re not going to be paying deductibles. …Will you be paying more in taxes? Yes you…

New Rasmussen Poll Shows Trump Beating Bernie By 7 Points In Head-to-Head Matchup

Great news for the country…

For America to keep on winning, President Trump must remain in office. If implemented, Bernie Sanders’ policies would wreak havoc on the United States in what would most likely be an unprecedented fashion. Based on a new poll from Rasmussen, conservatives’ fears can subside for now. Trump beats Bernie head-to-head. Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart: President Trump beats Democrat-Socialist Bernie Sanders by 50 percent to 43 percent, according to a poll released Wednesday by Rasmussen Reports. Rasmussen, one of the most accurate pollsters of the 2016 presidential election, surveyed 1,000 likely voters February 24-25. This poll has a margin of error of 3 points. Trump will need every single vote he can get next November. That goes without saying, obviously. But it’s even more true when Hollywood and the mainstream media continues to campaign hard against him. Two major polls from November 2019 have released some stats that will have Democrats retreating to their safe spaces like nobody’s business. It isn’t just good news for Trump, it’s great news for Trump. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1198652943534301186 https://twitter.com/Rasmussen_Poll/status/1198300483263369229?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1198300483263369229&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F11%2Fhuge-black-support-for-president-donald-trump-hits-34-in-both-emerson-and-rasmussen-polls%2F This quick example should show every Democrat why it’s not okay to support the Democrat Socialist senator from Vermont in 2020.
