I’ve said before and I’ll say it again: Politicians are some of the worst people on planet Earth.
I don’t care if you’re a Republican, Democrat, Independent, Libertarian or whatever, they are all out for themselves and don’t mind using you or I to achieve their goal.
For example, apparently, McDonald’s workers in Detroit are striking for $15 an hour and better sexual anti-harassment measures.
Now, anyone who believes they deserves $15 bucks an hour to say “do you want fries with that?” is out of their freaking mind. There are plenty of jobs where college graduates don’t even make that an hour.
And to demand such a wage from a fast-food company is ridiculous. Fast food isn’t meant to be a career. Don’t like what you’re being paid? Get another job, more education or better yourself in someone or another. Making such ludicrous demands is exactly why companies are going to automation and robots, they are cheaper in the long run.
Now, why do politicians suck? Well, they leach and glob onto a cause or a movement simply because it’s popular and it may help them gain a few votes here and there.
No one should go to work and be harassed, sexually or otherwise. If someone is being harassed, they should have a right to defend themselves and go after the company, if they fail to protect the workers. But for former Vice President Joe Biden to post a video and act as if he’s been with them the whole time on the front lines, is absurd.
He’s victimizing them again. He’s simply using them because they are in the news to his political advantage. It’s sick, disgusting and is exactly the type of thing politicians do all the time. This is just one of the more blatant examples of a politician being a politician.
