Labor agency demands “remedial relief as soon as possible”

Obama’s federal National Labor Relations Board has issued complaints against McDonald’s franchises around the country that took action in opposition to minimum wage strikes.

“The complaints allege that McDonald’s USA, LLC and certain franchisees violated the rights of employees working at McDonald’s restaurants at various locations around the country by, among other things, making statements and taking actions against them for engaging in activities aimed at improving their wages and working conditions, including participating in nationwide fast food worker protests about their terms and conditions of employment during the past two years,” the NLRB office of public affairs states in a press release today.

According to the agency, activity by McDonald’s, including “discriminatory discipline, reductions in hours, discharges, and other coercive conduct directed at employees in response to union and protected concerted activity, including threats, surveillance, interrogations” and other actions are illegal.
The NLRB demands “remedial relief as soon as possible” and, short of that, it will litigate against the corporation and its franchises on March 30, 2015.

The complaint does not address accusations by McDonalds and other businesses that large unions are behind an effort to disrupt commerce and shut down restaurants and stores.

“The strikes are especially controversial because some have accused unions of paying workers $250-$500 to participate,” Eater reported on September 4.

“Some picket lines turned into temporary occupations, and several stores closed,” LaborNotes reported in August.

If successful, the strikes in 150 cities nationwide will have a dramatic impact of prices for consumers.

If union demands for raising the minimum to $15 an hour are met, prices will rise significantly, as noted by the Daily Signal:

A Big Mac meal increases from $5.69 to $7.82.
Wendy’s Son of a Baconator combo increases from $6.49 to $8.92.
Taco Bell’s 3 crunchy tacos combo increases from $4.59 to $6.31.
A Whopper meal increases from $6.15 to $8.46.
Subway’s turkey breast Footlong increases from $6.50 to $8.94.
“Most Americans eat fast food because they want a quick and inexpensive meal,” notes the Heritage Foundation. “If fast-food restaurants raised their prices, many of their customers would either eat at home or go to more expensive restaurants.”

Short of the minimum wage hike, fast food restaurants are realizing lower profits due in part to a lackluster economy.

In October, for instance, McDonald’s said third-quarter profit fell 30 percent as U.S. sales slumped for the fourth straight quarter.

This Illegal Alien Just Made a Ridiculous Demand to McDonalds

Obama’s America: Entitled illegal alien Maribel demands more money from McDonalds

by Brian Hayes | Top Right News

Last month, Barack Obama announced a blanket amnesty for 5 million illegal aliens — mostly so-called ‘Dreamers’ — those who claimed to have been brought her illegally as minors, and also their parents who broke the law.

Now that their criminality has been excused — and even applauded — by the White House, their arrogance and sense of entitlement has never been greater. They have zero concerns about being deported, and feel free to demand higher wages in public, and even lecture us on “democracy.”

As The Daily Mail reported-

A single mother of two from Los Angeles working as a McDonald’s server has boldly taken on the fast-food giant as part of a growing labor movement demanding higher wages.

Earlier this month, the woman known only as Maribel went on a strike against her employer.

In a video released by BuzzFeed last week, Maribel recounts how she was brought to the US from her native Mexico when she was only 7 months old. Her mother also works at McDonalds, despite her years of criminal illegal violations.

Maribel currently earns $9.35 an hour, which she says is not enough to support her one-year-old son, Brandon, and two-year-old daughter, Kaitlin.

‘I need fifteen to buy my babies diapers, their wipies, their clothes,’ she explains. ‘Its hard with nine dollars per hour — you can’t do that. It’s really hard to pay rent.’

She goes on to say: ‘If I pay my rent, I leave my kids without their diapers.’

Earlier this month, Maribel joined a large group of fast-food workers calling for $15 per hour and the right to unionize.

‘We’re gonna go show them that we’re not scared, that we’re here to fight for what we deserve,’ Maribel says in the video on the eve of the strike.

On December 4, Maribel led a group of protesters on a march to her McDonald’s eatery in South Central waving signs and chanting slogans like ‘this is what democracy looks like!’

You can watch the video here.

As blogger Derryck Green so aptly put it:

Notice that Maribel is a single mother of two and an illegal immigrant who makes more than both the federal minimum wage and the California state minimum wage. If she’s having trouble making ends meet, Maribel should’ve thought through beforehand that her income wasn’t enough to support her reproductive productivity.

Therefore she’s demanding McDonald’s (which would pass that increase on to consumers) pay her more, in essence, to pay for her bad decision of having (illegitimate) children, without the means of supporting them. Again, not because she’s earned it, but because she needs it.

Someone needs to tell Maribel- and the other striking employees- that if her capabilities merited $15 an hour, then she would be making… wait for it… $15 per hour.

This whole charade is going to backfire as McDonald’s and other companies wisely transition to automation, putting thousands of people, legal and illegal, out of work because the greed and narcissism of people like Maribel have become too costly and not worth the trouble to employ.

So this illegal alien is demanding $15 an hour to flip burgers, and lecturing Americans on “democracy” — while those Americans NEVER voted to permit millions of illegal aliens to break our immigration laws with impunity. It is only because of an illegal amnesty decree by our would-be Emperor Obama that this lawless arrogance is on full display.

Best-Selling Author Brad Thor: ‘I Would Rather Vote Third Party Than Vote for Jeb Bush’

Best-selling author Brad Thor isn’t reacting favorably to establishment Republican Jeb Bush’s announcement on Tuesday that he is highly considering a 2016 presidential run, following in the footsteps of both his father George H.W. Bush, and brother George W. Bush.

The younger Jeb, a big government Republican who Michelle Malkin referred to as the “Waterboy” for the crony capitalists at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is both pro-Common Core, and pro-amnesty, referring to foreign invaders who enter and stay in the U.S. illegally as guilty of only committing “acts of love.”

In response to Bush’s announcement, Thor tweeted to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and the GOP, “let me be perfectly clear. If Jeb Bush in the nominee, I will never vote Republican again.

Thor, who has published several New York Times best-sellers, followed with several additional tweets, often using the hashtag #NoMoreBush, told Breitbart that he would rather vote for a third party candidate than for Jeb Bush.

“I would rather vote for a third party candidate than vote for Jeb Bush,” he said.

Thor pointed out that the GOP has a long history of trotting out squishy moderate candidates with the assurances that they are the “most electable.”

“The party told us in 2008 it’s McCain, trust us. Didn’t do it. The party told us in 2012, it’s Romney, trust us. Didn’t do it. The GOP sucks at winning elections for President. So they get the guy they want, the donor class wants, and they lose,” Thor told Breitbart.

ARIZONA SHERIFF: OBAMA AMNESTY WILL APPLY TO 20 MILLION ILLEGALS

DHS memo will allow President to bypass his own dictates

by STEVE WATSON DECEMBER 16, 2014

A County Sheriff in Arizona has warned that the President’s executive order on immigration could see as many as twenty million illegal immigrants provided amnesty.

Appearing on Your World With Neil Cavuto, Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu pointed to a memo written by the Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, which cited the 20 million figure.

“The fact is it’s not just the 5 million that President Obama promised.” Babeu explained.

“We learned that Jeh Johnson the Secretary of Homeland Security, put out a six page memo, and he said that anybody who’s been here since January of this year, anybody prior to that date, they are allowed to stay here. There will be deferred action,” Babeu added.

“This number that President Obama promised would be 5 million is now 20 million illegals.” the Sheriff urged.

Obama’s stated intentions for an executive order on immigration was originally slated to cover just illegal immigrants whose children have citizenship or green cards. However, the President has been touring the country telling groups of immigrants, including those in the US illegally, that his immigration-law rewrite means they will be able to stay.

“What we’re saying essentially is, in that low-priority list. … You’re not going to be deported,” Obama told one such crowd in Tennessee last week.

It is also unclear at this time whether or not Obama has even signed an executive order.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, of Alabama told watchdog group Judicial Watch last week that “We don’t even have a really significant, direct, legal direction that we can ascertain, precisely what the president is doing. It’s a stunning event in my view.”

“I guess they just whispered in the ear of (DHS Director) Jeh Johnson over at Homeland Security, ‘Just put out a memo. That way we don’t have to enforce the law.’” Sessions added.

Sheriff Babeu has been attempting to garner media coverage regarding the memo for the last three weeks, having put out a press release stating that the DHS memo is “basically instructing all federal agents and officers that they will not enforce immigration law,” and that “the release from prison has already started,” according to ICE officials he has been in contact with.

Babeu told Cavuto that the situation on the southern border “is going to get worse,” adding “It’s a big neon sign flashing … that make it to the border and you’re home free.”

Here is the DHS memo in full, with Babeu’s press release:
