Government is supposed to facilitate and enable commerce. It is not to run it, manage it, direct it, or pick the participants. One of our biggest problems is that we are led by people who think their ability to shape the future coupled with their expertise on everything knows no limits and that their ideas don’t have any negative consequences.
Under the constitution the government’s role in business was extremely narrow. Over the years between the government squeezing on one side and the unions on the other it’s only our once great system that has kept us afloat.
Enter the fray one, AOC who perilously can turn an oak tree into a weeping willow tree limp! Otherwise referred-to as AOC: Another Outrageous Con !!!
One wonders just how she can still string more than three words together, since her manager Sackrete Sheikyerbouti got canned. BTW, is he in prison yet? She’s on the list too. Campaign finance crimes.
AOC like all demoMarxocrats is a union lover and yes that in itself is the biggest job killer. States that have right to work laws are the choice for businesses and workers. Workers in those states get the same perks as union-friendly states but they keep the union dues in their pockets. Check out how many auto production plants moved into those states.
All major manufacturing is building or relocating in them. When we had sweet shops and child labor, the need for unions were there but now we have laws that replaces the unions’ need. Or, as Kevin Williamson says, ”everything seems simple when you don’t know the first f***ing thing about it.”
Silvio Canto has a short, sharp, pithy piece in today’s American Thinker which he titles ‘The Girl is a Job-Killer’…
We remember how Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, or the Bronx Evita as my friend Bill Katz calls her, led the campaign to kill an Amazon project in the New York City area.
She killed a few thousand jobs, maybe even more. It was a disaster for workers, but Miss Sandy O got another invitation to MSNBC,
Well, she is back and she is killing jobs again.
Last week, Bright Power decided to fire its staff and farm all the work out to subcontractors instead of maintaining their own workforce. The firing occurred just as the workers were following Ocasio-Cortez’s advice to form a union.
“We have come to the conclusion that our resources have been spread too thin with so many different kinds of work all being done in-house,” Bright Power CEO Jeffrey Perlman said according to VICE.com.
“It makes business sense to return to a fully subcontracted solar installation model.”
Nice. Very nice. Workers lose jobs and Sandy gets to give a speech.
Over the years, I have supported private industry unions. It’s great for workers to unite and get the best deal available. At the same time, sometimes management has to turn to other options to stay in business.
Sandy O is a job killer and that’s all you can say that about the young lady.[end]
In case you missed it, Communism abounds in today’s ‘brave new world’, with AOC one of its most vocal proponents.
Let the ‘elites’ live the life they’re trying to foist on us. No more planes, trains, and automobiles so they may flit from one lectern to another, hectoring, insulting, and threatening Americans who dare to have an opposing opinion.
Bottom line is, while this communist hypocrite lives the high life, jobs are being destroyed. One has to wonder, when do the illiterates in the demoMarxocrat party wake up. But then again they no doubt deserve her, since they did after all, vote for her. As well as, we might include, the other apocalypse three.
Stupid is, as stupid does, goes the phrase.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Thank GOD for president Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
