"The country’s very low minimum wage comes at a high cost. And for taxpayers, it adds up to more than $100 billion a year. That number comes from a new analysis of safety-net usage by UC Berkeley’s Labor Center."
Piece by @AnnieLowrey
A minimum wage isn’t making teachers/soldiers homeless, or leaving their children hungry. It’s those who’d use such shamefully underpaid careers as excuses (to deny others a barely-near-living wage, no less) who help do that.
Plus, their cruelty hurts the economy.
GOP Sen. Lankford apologizes to Black constituents for opposing election results .
“I should have recognized how what I said and what I did could be interpreted by many of you," is not repentance, it’s “Sorry YOU’re upset, but I was right.”
I guess #TraitorTrump was just modeling @GOP values when he said “I don’t take responsibility at all.”
Trump has released a scripted video, condemning an "incursion" into the Capitol.
Imagine if a gang leader, after a botched heist that leaves bodies behind, wrote a note (hoping to avoid prosecution) condemning the "incursion" of bullets into his victims.
Colin Kaepernick respectfully protests violence … it's "Disrespecting the flag! Get that SOB!" & the NFL fires him.
But seditious, cop-killing, excrement-smearing terrorists at the Capitol … it's "You're special! We love you!" & demands for organic menus.
Good on every Congressional Republican stepping forward now to support impeachment. Every Republican who says they'll support impeachment makes it easier for the next Republicans to join. This is a permission structure. The early voices matter.
If Republicans want "unity" they can go ahead and unify behind impeaching, prosecuting … and convicting … Trump.
Any less, or anything else, and they're merely demanding redemption (if not sanctimonious exaltation), without offering a scintilla of repentance.
Memo authorized by Barr and signed by now acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen from last September. They intended it to be used against #BlackLivesMatter protesters and Antifa
… and later, his pet AGs wrote a memo, intended to silence BLM protestors by cracking down harshly on them, for the slightest hint of perceived force/resistance.
Cosmic justice has a sense of humor Trumpster Insurrectionists won't enjoy.
Before his death, Officer Sicknick was reportedly knocked unconscious with a fire extinguisher.
While down, the crowd continued to hit him.
Some, with American flags.
Don’t speak the word “unity” without full accountability.
To quote @AdamParkhomenko’s wise tweet: “It’s easy to spot the people who got us to this point. They’re the same people telling us we need to move on.”
This is a heart-sickening reminder why we can’t “move on” without accountability.
There are at least 4 & 373K+ others.
