I called this, and promised that this trend is going to discredit both “trickle down economics” Cuckservatives, as well as Leftists with their lukewarm economic proposals.
The corrupt cancer within the American economy is just too strong, and the fight we engage in has a distinctive and unavoidable class element to it that so many just like to overlook.
In response to public pressure and increasing scrutiny over the pay of its warehouse workers, Amazon enacted a $15 minimum wage for all its employees on 1 November, including workers at grocery chain Whole Foods, which it purchased in 2017.
All Whole Foods employees paid less than $15 an hour saw their wages increase to at least that, while all other team members received a $1 an hour wage increase and team leaders received a $2 an hour increase.
But since the wage increase, Whole Food employees have told the Guardian that they have experienced widespread cuts that have reduced schedule shifts across many stores, often negating wage gains for employees.
“My hours went from 30 to 20 a week,” said one Whole Foods employee in Illinois.
Workers interviewed for this story were reluctant to speak on the record for fear of retaliation.
Now I know unions became mob fronts in the Northeast, but you’ve got to imagine the need to curb the American-style bossman and his love of profit.
The Illinois-based worker explained that once the $15 minimum wage was enacted, part-time employee hours at their store were cut from an average of 30 to 21 hours a week, and full-time employees saw average hours reduced from 37.5 hours to 34.5 hours. The worker provided schedules from 1 November to the end of January 2019, showing hours for workers in their department significantly decreased as the department’s percentage of the entire store labor budget stayed relatively the same.
“We just have to work faster to meet the same goals in less time,” the worker said.
An internal email shared by the employee from their department manager cited the across-the-board shift cuts as “the direct result of guidance from our regional team”.
In Maryland, another Whole Foods worker said their regional management is forcing stores to cut full-time employee schedules by four hours, to 36 hours a week. “This hours cut makes that raise pointless as people are losing more than they gained and we rely on working full shifts,” the worker said.
Another Whole Foods employee in Oregon noted: “At my store all full-time team members are 36 to 38 hours per week now. So what workers do if they want a full 40 hours is take a little bit of their paid time off each week to fill their hours to 40. Doing the same thing myself.”
For White members of the working class, the American Dream is dead and rotting in a dumpster.
Drug, alcohol, and suicide deaths have reached a new high, hordes of feral Third World creatures are pouring into the country to drive down wages, and most employment sectors long ago decided to go the route of corporate greed instead of seeking a happy and prosperous workforce.
Even if you’re a brilliant man or woman who works like a horse, many avenues of promotion are now closed to you – it comes down to who you know, who you blow, or how much non-White blood you have flowing through your veins.
It therefore comes as no wonder why discussions of Socialism are now becoming mainstream on both Left and Right.
Our choice in the end will be whether we receive a Nationalistic form of Socialism, or an International form conceived in some Jew’s sick little mind.
