The girl is a job killer

leave a comment »

We remember how Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, or the Bronx Evita as my friend Bill Katz calls her, led the campaign to kill an Amazon project in the New York City area.

She killed a few thousand jobs, maybe even more.  It was a disaster for workers, but Miss Sandy O got another invitation to MSNBC,

Well, she is back and she is killing jobs again.

Check this out:    

Last week, Bright Power decided to fire its staff and farm all the work out to subcontractors instead of maintaining their own workforce. The firing occurred just as the workers were following Ocasio-Cortez’s advice to form a union.  

“We have come to the conclusion that our resources have been spread too thin with so many different kinds of work all being done in-house,” Bright Power CEO Jeffrey Perlman said according to VICE.com. 

“It makes business sense to return to a fully subcontracted solar installation model.”

Nice.  Very nice.  Workers lose jobs and Sandy gets to give a speech.     

Over the years, I have supported private industry unions.  It’s great for workers to unite and get the best deal available.  At the same time, sometimes management has to turn to other options to stay in business.

Sandy O is a job killer and that’s all you can say that about the young lady.

Mr. Schiff look south of the border for a real problem

leave a comment »

Prior to writing this post, I contacted a journalist friend in Mexico.   

We exchanged some details about the Patriots vs Cowboys game.  My friend is a Cowboys fanatic and wants Coach Garrett fired.

After that, we spoke about violence in Mexico.  He said:  “Asi es” or “that’s the way it is.”

People are really worried south of the border and it’s not about President Trump calling people names for crossing the border.

John Daniel Davidson summarized the situation perfectly:   

Two important and interrelated news stories largely passed under the radar Wednesday as the House impeachment hearings continued to dominate the headlines. 

Both stories concern the deteriorating state of affairs in Mexico and have huge implications for immigration, the southwest border, and U.S. national security.

It’s a shame more Americans aren’t paying attention.

And specially the one about cartels trying to take over Mexican industries.  

OK why does it matter that cartels are throwing farmers off the land and planting avocados?  Or that homicides are happening at record levels.

First, we have a long border with Mexico.  Imagine that criminal elements are shooting everyday next door.  Wouldn’t you worry?

Second, President Lopez-Obrador is turning out to be a very weak leader.  He seems more interested in being the darling of the left than worrying about crime in Mexico.

Third, the Mexican economy slowed in 2019.  This is strange because the US and Mexican economy usually fly in the same direction.  Are investors concerned?  It’s the only logical explanation.

And last but not least, the violence could drive more people north seeking asylum.

Why didn’t MSNBC ask a single question about Mexico last week?   I won’t speculate but the crisis south of the border will be around for a while.
