Uber and Lyft Drivers Strike Alongside Fast Food Workers in LA, Demand $30 Minimum Wage

Quote

Los Angeles, in particular, has become a hotbed of unrest for gig workers, with major protests being led by grassroots groups like Rideshare Drivers United, which hopes to cap the amount of commission these platforms can extract from drivers, as well as instate the same $27.86-per-hour pay floor recently won in New York.

Quote

MWA, for its part, is hoping for an even more ambitious $30-per-hour floor, of which organizers estimate about half would become take-home pay and the other half would go to the sorts of overhead expenses Uber and Lyft burden their drivers with by classifying them as contractors, such insurance, gas, and vehicle wear. 

 

At this pace.  It'll be cheaper to call a cab.  I've noticed during their surge pricing, it's already cheaper to call a cab.

Why?

Because Garrow is a Pulitzer prize-winning author with access to information. Why would he lie, knowing that he would be found out in 8 years?

Disappointing if true. But can’t say I’m shocked.

The civil rights hero was also heard allegedly joking he was the founder of the 'International Association for the Advancement of P***y-Eaters'

That quote alone invalidates the article. We all know that there is no way this is true

Not going to lie, I almost said the exact same thing but figured it would be lost among all the honkies here.

This was complete bullshit btw. Even the liberal site Snopes says there isn't any evidence of a yacht purchase.

The fact is the money has been used to build part of the wall on private land which sits between two sections of existing boarder wall. 

https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/27/politics/private-border-wall-gofundme/index.html

Daniel Garcia Salinas, director of a nearby museum on the Mexican side of the border, told CNN the new wall went up rapidly over the weekend, changing the horizon behind the Museo Casa de Adobe.

Garcia said that when he had left the museum Friday afternoon there was no fencing there. By Saturday morning, he said, portions of new wall had been constructed.

"They moved very quickly," he said.

Since some of the usual suspects will disregard this because Twitter, here's the meat and bones of the story:

Quote

Acting Texas Secretary of State David Whitley (R) resigned on Monday after his office wrongly questioned the U.S. citizenship of nearly 100,000 people, The Houston Chronicle reported.

Whitley's office early this year launched a botched review of the state's voter rolls, saying officials had discovered as many as 95,000 noncitizens registered to vote and sending lists of names to county elections officials for review and purge.

Within days, the secretary of state’s office backtracked on the announcement after discovering that its original list was not properly vetted and included thousands of citizens.

President Trump seized on the initial announcement to renew his claims about "rampant" voter fraud in the state.

"58,000 non-citizens voted in Texas, with 95,000 non-citizens registered to vote. These numbers are just the tip of the iceberg. All over the country, especially in California, voter fraud is rampant. Must be stopped. Strong voter ID!" Trump tweeted in January.

He did buy a boat worth 675k.  He posted pictures of it on instagram.  He also does have a history of fraud.
