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.”

Hillary Clinton is running for president in 2020. Most likely. The writing is on the wall. You don’t remain as active as she has after losing a bid for the Oval Office if you don’t plan to run again. Also, her latest remarks aren’t doing anything to dispel notions that she won’t run. From Daily Wire: Two-time failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued to add fuel to the fire on Tuesday over speculation she may enter the 2020 presidential race with a new series of remarks that she made on the radio where she declined to rule out a late entry to the race. Hillary screeched, “I, as I say, never, never, never say never. I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it.” WATCH: 🗣️”Never, never, never say never” @HillaryClinton refuses to rule out running again to be President of the USA To hear @EmmaBarnett’s full interview with Hillary and @ChelseaClinton, check out #EmmaBarnettGetsAnswers on @BBCSounds https://twitter.com/bbc5live/status/1194229638425432066?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1194229638425432066&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fboston-university-student-group-triggered-by-ben-shapiro-speech-title-shapiro-responds Reactions: “My butler, my other butler, my food chewer, my blood boy, the hitman I keep on retainer, my other blood boy.

And wasn’t that the goal from the jump? Most likely. Check this out, via Daily Caller: President Donald Trump’s campaign is trolling vanquished Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with an ‘error’ page that shows Clinton holding a microphone behind the presidential seal. The website’s ‘error’ page gloats over the results of the 2016 election, where Trump defeated Clinton with 306 electoral college votes.

This is just laughable. As if you needed another reason not to support Bernie’s 2020 presidential bid, right? Could you imagine Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a key role? Can you even fathom the amount of damage she’d do to the country? It’s will happen if Bernie secures the Democrat nomination and goes on to defeat President Trump in the general election. Secretary of State Ocasio-Cortez? Head of Anything Ocasio-Cortez? Scary stuff. From Daily Wire: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told ABC News Monday night that his new campaign trail-mate, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) would play a significant role in his White House if he is elected president. Sanders noted, “Look, I’ve said this before, let me say it again and I don’t want you to hear this because your head will explode. I don’t know of any person who, in the course of less than one year, has had more of an impact on American politics as a freshman member of Congress than she has.” The socialist continued, “It’s not only that she has focus on the real issues impacting the American people, like climate change, the usury rates that Wall Street are charging working people in this country, but she has been an inspiration to working people all across this country and to young people in particular.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/CalebJHull/status/1166539227284299776?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1166539227284299776&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2019%2F08%2F28%2Falexandria-ocasio-cortez-millennials-older-generation%2F More AOC, for your entertainment… Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says she is scared of diseases she claims that are going to escape frozen glaciers and they are going to get into the water and kill people AOC mentions mosquitos, which do kill tons of people, and shows anxiety over it (:45 mark) https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1166570882518720513?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1166570882518720513&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fdailycaller.com%2F2019%2F08%2F28%2Falexandria-ocasio-cortez-millennials-older-generation%2F When even Ocasio-Cortez is admitting there’s a good chance President Trump wins re-election in 2020, you just know Dems are in big trouble.
