Dem Rep. Khanna: Democrats: ‘We Don’t Want’ Small Businesses …

on

In Case You Missed It … This is how the Democrats view American small businesses .. they don’t want us around & one rep even admitted it …

Democratic Rep Ro Khanna told Anchor Abby Phillip of CNN’s “Inside Politics”:

“I know that you feel very strongly like many progressives about the minimum wage issue. Right now, at the same time, businesses, both large and small, are struggling in this pandemic economy, more than 9 million jobs have been lost in the last year, and they still aren’t back, and the problem is particularly acute in industries like retail and foodservice, which are more likely to pay minimum wage.”

“I think the question that a lot of Republicans are posing and perhaps some moderate Democrats is timing. Is now the right time to increase it to $15? I should say the bill has stages, of course, but immediately it would go up about 30% right now. Is now the right time to do that?”

“Abby, it’s absolutely the right time to give working Americans a raise. Let’s look at the facts. Amazon raised their wage to $15 nationally, not regionally. They have more jobs today. It didn’t hurt job creation or business. Target followed. They also did it nationally, more jobs.”

You have got to be kidding me, AMAZON?  Amazon increased jobs because you made it ILLEGAL for their competition to open.  Now THAT is FASCISM as defined by Mussolini.   Perhaps we should talk about all the other perks Congress and the USG has given Amazon.

In essence, Khanna and the Democrats promoting the minimum wage of $15 dollars an hour are murdering the American dream of owning your own business. Sure, Amazon can afford to pay $15 but look at how they can afford to do it. During the pandemic, people were not free to go out and shop, so they started ordering everything online. And when the $15 minimum wage closes all the mom and pop shops, the big boys will increase their business.

No longer will someone be able to open a small diner or a coffee shop if they are saddled with a $15 dollar minimum wage. And will the big companies continue to pay such high wages or will they turn to automation? Case in point. Two Walmart Neighborhood Markets near me closed all of their checkout lines. They installed a dozen small self-checkout stations. How many jobs will that cost nationwide?

Let’s take it a step further. McDonald’s has pot in kiosks so people can order without a counterperson. But, it goes a lot further than that, as they experiment with a machine that makes every sandwich fresh. The toppings are cut only as the machine cooks the burger, puts on the toppings, wraps, and bags your food without a single human being involved in your transaction.

Called Burgeon, the new robot promises to make fresher, more consistent burgers and could replace thousands of low-paid workers in burger bars across the world.

“The Burgeon can crank out a burger every 16 seconds. It grinds the meat, stamps out the patty, sends it along a conveyor-belt grill, toasts the buns, squirts on the condiments, slices and drops in pickles and tomatoes and lettuce, then pops the finished burger into a bag, all in under five minutes,” reports The Mercury News, which has seen the robot in action.

It’s been created by Momentum Machines, and the team behind the food-bot includes members trained in mechanical engineering, control systems, and physics at top-tier institutions in the US – Berkeley, Stanford, UCSB and the university of Utah.

The first attempt, dubbed alpha, promises to do everything human workers can do, only better. Examples given by the company include slicing toppings such as tomatoes and pickles immediately before it places the slice on to the burger.

⁣⁣I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it… GOOD LUCK..HERE ➤➤ Www.Webcash1.Com

America THRIVES because of small business. Leave it to the neo communist Democrats to tear down our success. Hundreds of thousands of entry level jobs for young people will disappear.

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do >>  Www.Netpay1.com

I guess the way to fight them is # 1 do not play the vax-passport game because you will immediately lose A LOT of business. Non-vaxers are not that desperate to dine out or go to a gym or a bar. # 2 YOu will have to go back to working at your business for a time in order to pay the $15 hr. Less employees. Less jobs for people as well. But if you want your business to be open there are sacrifices. Have business owners rallied together to sue the Fed Gov over this? Thats an option.

automation is going to be the new norm, never mind that these machines are going to put MORE workers out of work, they don't care as long as they profit

Democraps HATE anyone they can't control. That means they especially HATE those who got where they are by hard work and on their own. That means they TRULY HATE those who own a small business and did not get it given to them by Democraps.

We also do not want or need corrupt politicians like Democratic Rep Ro Khanna. A communist operative and anti-American.

Small businesses helped shape America. This person needs to go back to India, his native state. I understand that he was born here from immigrant parents. But being a first generation citizen doesn't qualify him to make such statements with no regard to the history of this country

A dictators dream, centralize everything and it will be easier to control the citizens, either they stay in line, or the supplies are cut off until they do. BTW: Even big businesses will eventually fail if people are not working, the lack of purchasing power will bring them to a skidding hault. There has to be cash flow within a country and comming into a country or there will be a screecking halt to everything. (Think about this).

It is past time to get rid of so many of those in the House and Senate, especially the House--you people no matter who or what you are are the most vindictive people I have ever seen or heard of. Two term limit is way past due.
