Default Restaurants Unlimited files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

Democrats strutting about on the debate stage aren't going to mention the adverse impact of their insisting on inflating the minimum wage but to the workers thay claim to protect it is very real.

Quote:
Restaurants Unlimited, a Seattle-based company that operates 35 fine-dining and polished casual restaurants in six states, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the District Court of Delaware, citing rising minimum wages in its core markets, specifically Seattle, San Francisco and Portland, Ore., as well as the company’s own expansion and a general national trend away from casual dining.
All 3 of their core markets are cities run by Democrats who are only interested in virtue signaling even if it costs workers their jobs.

According to their restructuring officer wage expenses have significantly increased thanks to government mandate.

Quote:
He said that over the past three years, RUI’s profitability had been “significantly impacted” by minimum wage increases of 69% in Seattle, from $9.47 to $16, 41% in San Francisco, from $11.05 to $15.59 and 35% in Portland, from $9.25 to $12.50. As a result, the company’s annual wage expenses were up by $10.6 million in fiscal 2019.
That's right, thanks to politicians inflating the minimum wage these workers are now unemployed. Wonder if they are grateful for the Democrats "help".

You can almost think this is the Democrats' ultimate goal...To get everyone not working so they have to suck the teat of the state...

I believe that the purpose of raising the min wage is to gain votes through virtue signaling. Having these workers now relying on the government is just an added bonus to the DNC.

My question would be, is that the intention of the virtue signaling? To put Americans on the dole? Essentially making them subjects of the government.

Hard to say as I find it difficult to separate logic in my thought processes the way that the left seems to do, so I really don't understand their motives. However, my assumption has always been that they will say anything their audience wants to hear to get those audience members to vote for them.

But after years of playing lip service to raising the min wage, it appears that local and state government officials are either being forced to do this by those same groups or are really dumb enough to believe that it will truly do some good. In either case, conservative voices are being ignored.

And I believe for the most part, it is due to a lack of critical thinking skills being nurtured in our public school systems. Some of the people that I have met that have recently graduated from inner city school systems appear to lack any ability to think for themselves and rely on others to tell them how they should think and vote. Once again, we can thank the left and the NEA for that.

So to answer your question in a round about way, yes the left is looking to put as many people on the government dole as possible as long as they are the ones in positions of authority.

The Slag term we use for screwingis based on a king's decree "Fornication Under Consent of the King. It comes from the medieval time when nobility was a birthright and all others depended on the royalty to provide everything. But had no personal rights to have anything.

It was called "feudalism" at the time the public being named "serfs." Serfdom meant a surrendering of all rights to the monarch and all activities were done at the pleasure of the King or Lord or the manor.

Today we call this socialism. It is the same thing and where the Democrats now want to take our nation.

I refuse to go. Sorry.

Decades ago, there were two Marxists who came up with the bright idea that "equality" means EVERYBODY is miserable...

Quote:
The Cloward–Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a socialist system of "a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty"

...Michael Reisch and Janice Andrews wrote that Cloward and Piven "proposed to create a crisis in the current welfare system – by exploiting the gap between welfare law and practice – that would ultimately bring about its collapse and replace it with a system of guaranteed annual income. They hoped to accomplish this end by informing the poor of their rights to welfare assistance, encouraging them to apply for benefits and, in effect, overloading an already overburdened bureaucracy."[
