Colorado changed it to “Indigenous Peoples Day” and guess what, you still get it off if you were getting Columbus Day off and you still work if you didn’t.

Crenshaw is such a pandering Fuck!
I’m guessing he’s less pro-Columbus and more anti-indigenous peoples.

There are so many of those things that run through my head all the time, and when I bring them up, cop boot lickers always resort to every excuse in the book or outright denial or "but BLM." It's never "those cops were wrong."

Unless of course, those cops shot an American Patriot like Ashli Babbitt. Then it's doxx city.

I'd love it, especially when people find out that Peter Falk isn't Italian, but Jewish of Eastern European descent.

Yep, and those two guys left doing all the work will get fed up and quit soon. Good luck with that.

The Twitter replies are great on this one. He tries to make the point that the median household income in that town is around $29,000, so the $14 is in line with that. But then everyone points out that that doesn't mean people want to work for that little.

It's like all these conservative leaders and CEOs and managers forgot the "free market" works both ways. They'd love to be able to "pay" people nothing at all to work for them, so it's just a question of raising the rate from nothing until someone wants to do the job. If $14 an hour gets you zero applicants, HEAL THYSELF.

Also note that it's not even a full-time job. Unload those boxes of Brain Flakes, then they'll call you if they need you again. If.

He also makes it sound like the two guys unloading the 35,000 pounds of “brain” flakes are doing it one scoop at a time. There are such a thing as pallet jacks and forklifts.

Unless I’m not understanding what that guy is referring to, something like that should take 15-20 minutes to do.

I saw pics — they were rolling them out on one of those wheel track things. Probably took them longer to make the job posting.

^ gotcha.

And while I assumed it was a typo and this fool was unloading 35,000 lbs of cereal, turns out “brain flakes” are toys.

Which then begs the question: why did this guy buy so many cheapo plastic toys?!

Is anyone else willing to acknowledge the "Let's go, Brandon!" meme?

It's all supply and demand. If you advertise positions at fourteen bucks an hour and you have no takers, that means that your offer is too fucking low, it's how the free market works, end of story, suck it up.
