Target Raises Minimum Wage to $15 Hourly, Now Employee Hours Are Being Sliced (Video)

It’s too bad nobody could’ve predicted this!

Now that Target has caved to the liberal “fight for $15” mob, employees are suffering. What’s great is that you just know there were some left-leaning employees of the retail chain who fought for $15 an hour. And now, they’re paying the price bigly.

If only there was someone around to warn Target (and the radical left) that if you raise the minimum wage then businesses will be forced to cut workers’ hours, stop hiring, go out of business, and/or raise prices on consumers. Or…were there people saying that? It’s a mystery.

You have to feel bad for lefties, at times. You know, when they’re not violently harassing and attacking conservatives. These people just don’t know right from wrong; they know not what they do.

Two years ago, Target (TGT) said it would raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour by the end of 2020. The move won praise from labor advocates and put pressure on other companies to also move to $15.

But some store workers say the wage increases are not helping because their hours are falling, making it difficult to keep their health insurance and in some cases to pay their bills.

Continued:

CNN Business interviewed 23 current and former Target employees in recent months, including department managers, who say hours have been scaled back even as Target has increased starting wages. Many of these workers say the cuts, which come as Target’s business is in its strongest position in more than a decade, have hurt them financially. CNN Business agreed to withhold the last names of several of the current employees and the city where their store is located so they could speak freely.
We’re begging for hours.”

“I got that dollar raise but I’m getting $200 less in my paycheck,” said one, Heather, who started in November at a Florida store working around 40 hours a week. She’s now below 20 some weeks, she said. “I have no idea how I’m going to pay rent or buy food.”

Ilhan Omar Caught Red-Handed In ‘Cash-For-Ballots Harvesting Scheme’ — Project Veritas Report

Caught ya!

Everybody knows that Ilhan Omar is corrupt. Her disturbing track record proves it. However, this new blemish on her resume is likely to turn more heads than usual. If the mainstream media was honest with the American public, they’d report on this story from Project Veritas. Here’s the deal, via Project Veritas: [Minneapolis–Sept. 27, 2020] Project Veritas investigators revealed a ballot harvesting scheme here involving clan and political allies and associates of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) in the first of a series of reports. “Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” said Liban Mohamed in a series of Snapchat videos posted July 1 and July 2 on his own Snapchat profile. CONTINUED: Mohamed said he was collecting the ballots to help his brother win the city’s Aug. 11 special election for a vacant Ward 6 city council race—which was held the same day as the primary for Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat. Ward 6 is the heart of the city’s Somali community and the Omar’s political base. James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, said: “Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities—and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/DonaldJTrumpJr/status/1310385604962775042?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310385604962775042%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-project-veritas-exposes-ilhan-omar-connection-to-illegal-ballot-harvesting-voter-fraud-scheme%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWK56l2VaLY&feature=emb_title

Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Republicans’ Are ‘Spineless, Misogynistic Hypocrites’

How original!

The New York Times, a hysterically funny satire “news”paper, or, a liberal version of The Babylon Bee, if you will, put out a report on Sunday about President Trump’s taxes. Yeah, they’re back on that train again. AOC gleaned the highlights, then decided to tweet at her uninformed, politically backward social media followers. Check this out, via The Hill: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) slammed President Trump on Sunday over a report in The New York Times detailing his personal tax contributions over the past 20 years. In a tweet, the freshman New York lawmaker pointed to the taxes reportedly paid by the president and former media mogul in 2016 and 2017 — $750 a year — as being less than she paid while working as a bartender in New York City prior to her election to office in 2018. LOOK: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1310384989524185093?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310384989524185093%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fhouse%2F518529-ocasio-cortez-trump-contributed-less-in-taxes-than-waitresses-and-undocumented Next, Ocasio-Cortez hammered Republicans for being “spineless, misogynistic hypocrites.” https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1310388421286920193?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1310388421286920193%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fhouse%2F518529-ocasio-cortez-trump-contributed-less-in-taxes-than-waitresses-and-undocumented For a member of the lower chamber, who swore an oath to the United States of America, to claim that illegal immigration should be accepted, is absolutely preposterous. AOC said, “We can’t go on with kinda these xenophobic narratives that undocumented people are somehow wrong.” See how she words it? She’s making the uninformed believe that conservatives feel that illegals are bad people. No, that’s not it at all – IT’S THE ACT OF CROSSING THE BORDER…ILLEGALLY!! Why is that such a difficult concept for her to grasp? VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8LwqJ_6T3Q&feature=emb_title Check this out, via Washington Examiner: Conservative political commentator Candace Owens got involved in a Twitter argument between former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, accusing the New York congresswoman of hypocrisy in her response to the coronavirus.
