Bigot who works for Donald Trump says "Media Should Keep Its Mouth Shut". Gee, guess he doesn't get it, that right or wrong, media can talk about matters of public interest. I didn't watch cable news to hear all the pundits bloviating over who would win, and certainly there were a number of them that were wrong, but that doesn't equate to telling them to shut up. Hah, no freedom of the press for the Trump camp. And uh, darned right.. media SHOULD be opposition.
Workers file 33 complaints against the guy Trump wants to be Secretary of Labor.
The sexual harassment charges, whose allegations include threats of sexual violence and multiple instances of retaliation, like moving the reporting employee to a less-desirable shift after they complained to HR, have been filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.The labor practices complaints have been filed with the National Labor Relations Board. The wage and hour complaints, however, have been mostly filed with the Department of Labor, the agency CKE’s CEO Puzder would be heading, which has a Wage and Hour division.
On a call with the members of the press organized by members of the Fight for 15 group and the National Employment Law Project, former workers spoke of intimidation, wage theft, and sexual harassment and retaliation. One Los Angeles worker at Carl’s Jr. named Ivan Nava said his manager moved his shifts to coincide with this college classes after she learned he had begun organizing to raise the minimum wage.
“If it wasn’t for food stamps, I don’t know how we would put food on the table,” he said. He also described not being allowed to attend to on the job injuries caused by the fryer and ice machine until after his shifts had ended.
Not a surprise. Decent people oppose torture.
The practice is banned in the US Army field manual on interrogating suspects, and Mattis and Pompeo have both said they would not support any attempt to revive waterboarding -- though Pompeo in recent testimony left some wiggle room, saying he could review the waterboarding ban under certain circumstances.
On Thursday, Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis said of Mattis's prior statements: "That thinking has not changed."
Get ready for the next White House and twitter email scandal
