LeoHohmann.com: Rashida Tlaib, who is a lock to replace disgraced Democrat John Conyers in the U.S. House of Representatives, was arrested Tuesday with 17 others Tuesday during a labor rally in Detroit.
Hundreds marched down Woodward Avenue to a McDonald’s as part of a national walkout of workers from McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and other chains organized by the Fight for $15, which demands a $15-per-hour minimum wage, The Detroit News reports.
Amazon, which is among the biggest, wealthiest corporations in the world, announced Monday it would voluntarily up its minimum wage to $15 an hour. This was a decision Amazon could more easily afford to make, thanks to President Donald Trump’s tax cuts.
But Democratic-Socialists like Tlaib don’t want such decisions to be left up to the folks who own and operate companies. They want this decision to be mandated by government. In the absence of a government edict, they will resort to intimidation tactics like we saw Tuesday on the streets of Detroit. They openly rail against capitalism and get cheered on by dumb college students across the U.S.
Tlaib, a Palestinian-American, is far from alone in her hatred of capitalist America. She was joined at Tuesday’s rally by Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, the failed Democrat candidate for governor of Michigan who lost in the August primary. read more
