In a stunning display of bravery, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is now calling for an increase to the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour, outdoing her fellow Democrats who only want a meager increase to $15 per hour.
While delivering a speech before One Fair Wage, a political organization lobbying for an increase to the federal minimum wage, Tlaib went further than virtually all of her fellow Democrats by demanding an even higher increase to the federal minimum wage to $20 per hour.
Tlaib began by discussing the hardships of those who rely on income earned via tips, “People cannot live on those kinds of wages, and we can’t allow people to be living off of tips, you know, tips wages, or whatever they call it, tips income,” before going on to address a $20 minimum wage.
“Big fights like this one, $15 dollars, by the way when we started it it should have been $15. Now I think it should be $20 to make sure we have a rise,” said Tlaib. “No, it should be $20 an hour, $18 to $20 an hour at this point.”
Tlaib went on to show her complete ignorance of economics, suggesting that costs have already gone up, and thus raising the minimum wage will have no impact on the economy.
“Because everything, all the costs, they say all this is going to raise the cost,” said Tlaib. She went on, rambling, “But I can tell you, milk has gone up, milk has gone up, the cost of everything has gone up, the cost of food has gone up, the cost of a lot of things that we need has gone up already.”

It should be noted that Tlaib’s attempt to justify a minimum wage increase due to the price of milk is highly problematic. As many respectable left-wing media outlets have detailed, there are startling links between dairy consumption and white supremacy.
While Tlaib’s economic paradise may seem to be just around the corner, real life may prove her plan to be as fanciful as it seems.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) recently showed the world what an increase to the federal minimum wage might look like, when at the behest of those working on his presidential campaign, he raised their minimum wage to $15 per hour and then immediately cut their hours.
For the last weeks, Sanders’s campaign has been rocked with allegations of unfair pay, as the Democrat presidential candidate running on a platform of raising the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour has been paying much of his campaign staff less than the coveted hourly amount.
To accommodate his campaign workers’ request, Sanders relented, and gave them a $15 wage. However, in order to afford such an increase, Sanders had to severely cut back the number of hours each campaign worker is allowed to put into the fledgling presidential campaign.
It appears Democrats will continue to wander further astray from reality as they attempt to outdo each other in the Stunning and Brave department.
Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke Will Begin Teaching at Texas State University in Spring 2021
The Failed Senate Candidate Will Start Indoctrinating College Students Next Year
Former Congressman and failed Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke will start teaching Texas politics at Texas State University during the spring 2021 semester, according to an announcement by the Department of Political Science on October 15, 2020. Although his hire has not been finalized, O’Rourke will join the department to teach an online class.
Political Science Chair Ken Grasso said he talked about potential course material with O’Rourke. The former congressman said he has taken a great interest into Texas politics recently.
“He originally approached people in the administration… and expressed an interest in teaching,” Grasso commented. “I was thrilled. He’s got a unique take on things with his experience as a congressman and as [a] senatorial candidate and even a presidential candidate. So we’re very happy to have him.”
In addition, Grasso claims O’Rourke wants to reach out to young adults and is motivated to teach, above all, during a “crucial time for the state and the country.”
Grasso is of the opinion that the addition of O’Rourke would bring a lot of energy to the political science department.
“I don’t know that so much it’s going to increase enrollments; it’ll certainly increase visibility,” Grasso opined. “That’s always a good thing. We tend to sometimes to get lost in the shadow of other institutions.”
If the Wuhan virus pandemic dies down by spring time, Grasso stated that O’Rourke could potentially do in-person classes. The department aims to limit O’Rourke’s class size in order to promote stronger interactions with students.
Grasso cited O’Rourke’s experience in Congress and the El Paso city council as unique factors that will help students understand Texas politics.
“He’s an actual practitioner out there,” Grasso stated. “You don’t know a man until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins, and none of us have walked in his moccasins.”
For now, O’Rourke has plans of teaching for the spring 2021 semester but Grasso is optimistic that the university can forge a long-lasting relationship with the former congressman. He believes that this could be “the beginning of a long-term relationship.”
The fact that a darling of the Left and ex-politician is set to be quickly integrated into a major university in Texas just shows how consumed by leftism most American universities have become. O’Rourke will do a fantastic job in propagating political correctness, much to the detriment of his students’ learning experience.
