Tlaib 20 Minimum Wage

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.

Big League Politics reported:

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.

As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million

Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.

Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.

Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.

Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”

“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.

“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.

Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.

Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.

Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:

While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.

Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.

However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.

Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.

“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.

Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
