Minimum Wage Lesson: Union That Campaigned for It Wants Exemption

The union officials who demanded no exceptions to the Los Angeles minimum wage hike are now giving us a minimum wage lesson by asking for an exception. Minimum wage increases don’t increase unemployment, they argue. Or, rather, they assert. There is no argument. But then suddenly the truth comes out when the very people arguing that a higher minimum wage must be inflicted on all businesses without exception suddenly demand an exception in order to increase union employment. From the Los Read more […]

State Retirement Funds Are Scams to Rip Off Struggling Workers

Why is Detroit bankrupt? Why is San Bernardino following in Detroit’s footsteps? Why is Illinois descending into financial crisis?

People pay into Read more […]

One of the branches of that call center will go live in a couple months in Concord, California inside Contra Costa County. It was big local news in that county, since this branch of the Obamacare Read more […]

Will a Romney Win Reboot Leftist “Peace” Activism?

Last night, the Associated Press reported that Morris Dees, founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center, offered criticism of Obama’s Hawkish foreign policy. From what I can see on Google, only a few papers are carrying the story. It will be interesting to see if the number grows. The “peace movement” of 2001-2008 evaporated almost overnight once Obama came into office. There were a few moments of honesty in the mainstream media about Obama’s protection of torture, his failure to close Read more […]
