WaPo Employees Beg Bezos for Raise

Published

on

More than 400 employees at the Washington Post have signed an open letter to owner Jeff Bezos demanding better working conditions after more than a year of failed negotiations with upper management.

“[Dear Jeff Bezos] we workers of The Washington Post have been bargaining for a year and have little to show for it because The Post won’t meet us halfway on much of anything,” says a tweet shared by the Post Guild. “We love The Post. We know you do too. Our work has earned us more than what The Post is offering.”

According to Deadlinesignees of the letter include prominent employees like White House reporter Ashley Parker and political reporter Dave Weigel.

Bezos is the founder, chairman, and CEO of Amazon. His estimated net worth is nearly $142 billion. He bought the paper in 2013.

The left-wing culture that has engulfed the Washington Post has spilled over into the office, and come back to bite Bezos. His employees are calling on him to “share the wealth” that they claim to have created.

“All we are asking for is fairness for each and every employee who contributed to this company’s success: fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,” the petition says.

The staff accompanied the petition with a video.

WATCH:

“I’m fighting for equal pay, because regardless of gender or skin color, we all deserve to be paid the same,” said a compilation of employees in the video.

The sword of social justice appears to be turning inward on the Washington Post.

Lesbian Activist Trashes Trans Fad: ‘Biology is Not a Social Construct’

Published

on

Some of the letters in the LGBT community are not feeling so communal if a prominent lesbian activist and Army Staff Sergeant is to be believed.

“I have spent every day of my life since that time advocating for the marginalized and oppressed, especially sexual minorities,” wrote Miriam Ben-Shalom in The Federalist. “I’ve organized rallies, shown up and stood up wherever injustice was allowed to flourish. I’ve twice chained myself to the White House fence and engaged in non-violent civil disobedience to protest the ban on LGB people in the military. I’ve risked jail time and criminal charges on behalf of my brothers and sisters in the LGB community.”

Ben-Shalom was originally honorably discharged from the Army for homosexuality, but was the first person re-instated after such a discharge in 1988, which she describes as one of the proudest moments of her life.

But things aren’t completely hunky-dory for the lesbian activist right now. Though she believes that transgender people deserve respect and ought not to be discriminated against, it is clear that Ben-Shalom thinks the movement has gone too far.

“[I] ought not to be expected to believe that by some magic and lots of surgeries and chemicals that a man can be a woman and a woman a man,” she wrote. “I, and all woman and children, should not have to put up with the shenanigans of those who insist that biology is ‘a social construct’ but gender ‘is innate in a person’ when the exact opposite is true.”

Ironically, Ben-Shalom’s views on the subject are so controversial that she was forced to publish her op-ed in the socially conservative Federalist. 

She also knocked the growing trend of parents forcing transgenderism on their children.

“Children should not be experimented upon by infusing them with puberty blockers to keep them from growing up,” she said. “Children should not be operated upon and have body parts removed because they ‘feel’ they are something other than what they are, should not be subjected to a lifetime of ill health because of Big Pharma’s chemicals.”

Ben-Shalom said that lesbian women should not be accused of “transphobia” for refusing to sleep with biological males who “identify” as transgender females, and that the law should not protect transgender females who want to use men’s bathrooms and locker rooms.

“Do you understand now why this is not about trans humans being discriminated against, but is about something much more horrible and revolting: the chemical sterilization of children, the denial of basic human rights to women and children, and the erasure of women? Do you still wonder why we do not want the law to allow such people in our spaces?”
