Interesting video. What I find most interesting about this whole Progressive charade is how they champion free speech but, when push comes to shove, they are the first to attempt to disrupt it or shut it down.

Student gov. member: Trump graffiti a 'hate crime'

Quote:
Yesterday, the phrase “Make America” (presumably the beginning of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again”) appeared in faint letters on a mural at Pitzer College. Additionally, the word “Trump” was spray painted on Pitzer’s clock tower.

In a widely shared Facebook post, Pitzer College Student Senate Executive Board member Elijah Pantoja described the statement as a “hate crime,” and called for the individual who painted it to be prosecuted. Pitzer College joins Scripps, Emory, Michigan, and other schools in protesting recent pro-Trump messages.
Further and, curiously:

Quote:
Pantoja does not state which California law he thinks writing part of the likely Republican nominee’s slogan violates.

Business is already moving out of California at an amazing rate. This will only accelerate things...

Jerry Brown signs $15 minimum wage in California

Quote:
Gov. Jerry Brown, casting a living wage as a moral imperative while questioning its economic rationale, signed legislation Monday raising California’s mandatory minimum to $15 an hour by 2022, acting within hours of a similar bill signing in New York.

The bill’s enactment comes one week after Brown, Democratic lawmakers and labor leaders announced an agreement on the wage increase, averting a brawl on the November ballot.

In adopting the measure, California joined New York as the first states in the nation to enact a plan to raise their statewide minimums to $15. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed his state’s legislation and was cheered by labor unions at a rally moments before Brown spoke in California.
Good for Tejas!

The unions are cheering because their own wages are based on minimum wage rates--and in many cases, the new rate makes the hiring of inexperienced workers unaffordable.

I don't often visit McDonald's, but the last two visits I used one of those automated ordering devices. Incredibly, the person in his video appears totally oblivious as to why her job is now on the line. You can see the complete delusion--they want to prosper as an adult on an entry level job intended for high school students and part-timers.

+ YouTube Video

Exactly. And, effectively, they are simply reducing entry level jobs:

White Castle CEO Responds to NY Minimum Wage Hike, Says They May Have to Raise Prices

Quote:
How sad is it that good companies like White Castle will not only have to jack up prices and pass the cost of a minimum wage hike on to the customer, but also reduce the number of jobs available, preventing unskilled workers from getting their foot on the first rung of success?
M'bold.

Unintended Consequences Of A $15 Per Hour Minimum Wage?

First off, life-long politicians rarely have any clue about how business operates:

Quote:
First, consider that the politicians who impose these regulations often have no business experience to speak of and only understand the following...That as a result of their actions they will be pleasing members of their constituency whose votes they seek.
So, instead of actually effecting good economic policy, they are pandering to low information voters who can't balance a checkbook, let alone make an informed choice.

Secondly,

Quote:
From a Forbes article titled, 'If California's $15 Minimum Wage Isn't Going To Reduce Poverty Then Why Bother To Do It?'...

'...We do indeed know that there are going to be price rises as a result of this. But the distribution of them will not be equal at all. For low-wage workers are the largest consumers of goods and services produced by low wage workers. Think it through: Walmart’s target demographic isn’t Wall Street financiers after all. Any price rise Walmart has to impose to pay for higher wages will impact upon Walmart’s customers: who do indeed tend to be poorer than the national average. And as I say, studies have shown that while the income effect of a minimum wage rise is as Neumark states above, skewed towards richer families, the distribution of the price rises runs the other way. It’s skewed toward larger price rises in the goods and services that poor people buy.
Nails it.

We're part of a brave new world where people slinging hash expect to be paid the wages of a skilled employee. Interestingly, it isn't only cashiers who are being affected by robotics. They're developing robots capable of cooking the food to consistent standards. They may require a couple of technically savvy people to run the machines and one person to smile as they hand out the machine-prepared food.

The mom and pop diners will be unable to afford the robots, so they will simply be driven out of business by the wage hikes, laving a clear playing field for large food conglomerates.

Solidarity forever!

Huh. Who could have predicted this would happen?

University of Toronto Dumps Transgender Bathrooms After Peeping Incidents

Quote:
The administration at the University of Toronto was recently enlightened on why two separate washrooms are generally established for men and women sharing co-ed residencies.

The University is temporarily changing its policy on gender-neutral bathrooms after two separate incidents of "voyeurism" were reported on campus September 15 and 19. Male students within the University’s Whitney Hall student residence were caught holding their cellphones over female students’ shower stalls and filming them as they showered.
My $0.02?

OK, so you are transgendered, or you consider yourself transgendered or amenable to the concept of transgender washrooms or whatever. In that instance, you should have the choice to attend the third selection, the Transgender washroom. Those of us who are not comfortable changing, showering or going to the washroom in front of little girls or little boys can use the Women's or Men's washrooms.

Jes' sayin'...

Man in women's locker room cites gender rule

Quote:
Seattle Parks and Recreation is facing a first-of-a-kind challenge to gender bathroom rules. A man undressed in a women's locker room, citing a new state rule that allows people to choose a bathroom based on gender identity.

It was a busy time at Evans Pool around 5:30pm Monday February 8. The pool was open for lap swim. According to Seattle Parks and Recreation, a man wearing board shorts entered the women's locker room and took off his shirt. Women alerted staff, who told the man to leave, but he said "the law has changed and I have a right to be here."
More:

Quote:
The issue drew protesters from both sides to Olympia on Monday. Opponents claim the rule opens up bathrooms to voyeurs but supporters say that's an unrealistic fear.
Riiiight. See top article in this post. Again...

Further:

Quote:
No one was arrested in this case and police weren't called, even though the man returned a second time while young girls were changing for swim practice.
Any of you have female children? You OK with this?
