TOLD YOU! After NYC Raises Its Minimum Wage, Workers Are Losing Their Jobs (Details)

It’s just comical at this point…

This is exactly what happens when Democrats elect far-left radicals into office.

New Yorkers wanted a minimum wage increase and they got it.

However, they are already paying for it – bigly – as workers are losing their jobs and prices are on the rise

From Daily Wire:

The New York Post reported last week that the survey found job losses due to the policy. Andrew Rigie, NYCHA’s executive director, told the Post that in 2018, “full-service restaurants recorded a 1.6 percent job loss, which is the first recorded annual loss in two decades.”

The survey also found that nearly one-third of respondents planned to “eliminate jobs” and a majority would raise prices due to the increased minimum wage, which took effect on December 31, 2018.

Well, that’s no good. In fact, it’s very, very bad.

And yet, Democrats continue to keep voting for politicians who are not working in their best interests. Why?

The “Fight for $15” 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.

Enter Whole Foods, the grocery chain owned by the richest man in the world, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos…

From Daily Wire:

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:

Save conservative media!

Report: Rumors Swirl That Bill Barr Considering Resigning Due to Trump’s Tweets, AG Responds

For real?

Bill Barr knew that President Trump loved tweeting before he accepted the nomination to once again become attorney general of the United States. Recently though, Barr said Trump’s tweets have made it hard for him to do his job. Trump shrugged off the comments. He didn’t see them as a big deal. But now, apparently, Barr is considering leaving his position. Here’s what is known, via Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr told people close to him that he’s considering stepping down over President Trump’s tweets, multiple reports said Tuesday, days after Barr admitted that Trump’s tweeting made it “‘impossible for me to do my job.” https://twitter.com/ZekeJMiller/status/1229960817358954497?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1229960817358954497&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-report-ag-barr-is-considering-quitting-over-trumps-tweets%2F More from Washington Post: The administration officials said Barr seemed to be sharing his position with advisers in hopes the president would get the message that he should stop weighing in publicly on the Justice Department’s ongoing criminal investigations. […] Barr had a previously scheduled lunch with the White House counsel Tuesday and was still the attorney general by day’s end — indicating that the president’s moves that day were not enough to push him to resign.

They want to earn their paychecks to feel as though they are contributing. So, when far-left candidates propose eliminating jobs – for pretty much any reason – it doesn’t sit well, nor should it. Biden, apparently, doesn’t understand this. The fact that the economy is thriving means next to nothing to him and it’s pretty sad. To talk of eliminating hundreds of thousands of jobs because the AOC’s of the nation think they know what’s best is downright pathetic. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden signaled support for eliminating hundreds of thousands of blue collar jobs on Thursday night in order to transition to a “greener economy.” https://twitter.com/FrancisBrennan/status/1207838340231380992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1207838340231380992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbiden-eliminate-hundreds-of-thousands-of-blue-collar-jobs-for-greener-economy H/T: Twitchy
