  • Average worker's pay has actually risen much faster than average CEO pay

    American Thinker ^ | 09/14/2018 | Jack Hellner
    On a continuing basis, Democrats, including the media, are playing the race, sex and class cards while they pretend they want to unite the country.  One of the talking points is the bald-faced lie that CEOs make over 300 times the average worker and their pay is rising faster than the average worker. There are around 250,000 CEOs in the U.S., but somehow we only hear about the top few hundred. In 2005, the median worker made $46,242 and the average CEO made around four times that amount, or around $180,000. In 2017 the median worker made a record $61,372...

    “Without you, I’m nothing.” A version of the latter is frequently uttered by movie stars and athletes to their fans. Absent the individuals who buy tickets to their games and movies, or who watch them on TV, these celebrities would be largely unknown. And they would earn very little money by extension. Celebrities of the film, television and sports variety, along with businesses more broadly, well understand that consumers conduct a daily vote with the fruits of their labor. Without them, they’re nothing in the figurative sense. What’s obvious to those who’ve won customers in the competitive markets is frequently...

Users also must pay a monthly fee of about $7. *** Here is the really funny part ***city officials will talk first with labor representatives about assurances that the city will not use the plate technology as a monitoring device on city employees.

    It came out that Turkey hasn’t paid the salaries of the gangs it lets loose on Afrin for two months, saying “The spoils of war you got from Afrin will suffice you for a year”. Reports suggest that disturbance erupted among the gangs Turkey derived from Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Al-Nusra, as Turkey hasn’t paid the salaries of some of these gangs for the past two months while they attacked and invaded Afrin. Although the pay cut is said to be related with the economic crisis and rapid increase of Dollar in Turkey, it has been learned that the Turkish state...
  • Want to empower women? Stop talking about gender pay gap

    If you want to empower women, stop talking about the mythical gender pay gap. ... It’s important to understand how the left is twisting numbers for political purposes, but it’s also vital to rebut the destructive message they’re sending. The subtext of Equal Pay Day is that women can’t. No matter how hard women work, no matter how smart they are, no matter their choices, women can’t earn as much as men. Try your hardest, sister, but your gender will keep you down.

    President Trump on Thursday repeated his call to arm teachers to prevent mass school shootings — saying that as many as 40 percent of a school’s educators could pack heat and get bonuses for their efforts to keep kids safe. “I want certain highly adept people, people who understand weaponry, guns … [and] a concealed [carry] permit” for teachers to carry guns on school property, the president said during a White House sitdown with members of his cabinet, lawmakers and Mayor Christine Hunschofsky of Parkland, Florida. Fourteen students and three staffers were gunned down at a high school there by...
  • Iceland Just Made It Illegal To Pay Men More Than Women

    A European country has become the first in the world to make it illegal to pay men more than women. In Iceland, firms that employ more than 25 people must now obtain a government certificate demonstrating pay equality, under new rules that kicked in on 1 January. Those who fail to show equality will face penalty fines, according to broadcaster Al Jazeera. The law was announced on March 8 on International Women's Day 2017 as part of the Nordic country's drive to eradicate the gender pay gap by 2022. It comes after the UK reported a 16.9% pay gap between...

    Watch out, publishers: a nightmare scenario for Facebook may soon be a reality.    The social network last week officially launched its secondary news feed called Explore. The feed generally features posts from Facebook Pages users don't follow. News Feed, meanwhile, hosts posts from friends and Pages users do follow.But that's not true for everyone. In six markets, Facebook has removed posts from Pages in the original News Feed and relegated them to another feed, Filip Struhárik, editor and social media manager at Denník N, wrote. That means Facebook's main feed is no longer a free playing field for publishers....

    The director of the Michigan State Police shared a meme only to become one. Colonel Kriste Etue posted a popular Breitbart News Facebook page post on her personal Facebook page in late September that called the NFL national anthem kneelers “anti-American degenerates.” In response on Thursday, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, who called the post  “innapropriate,” docked her five days’ pay. After the Breitbart News Facebook page posted the message on September 24, the Huffington Post noted that conservative news site had “published the top post on the social network by any major American publisher” that weekend. It boasted a greater reach than any such post in...

    African Americans were worse off financially in 2016 than they were in 2000. The median income for an African American household was $39,490 last year, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released last week. It was $41,363 in 2000. (Both figures are in 2016 dollars, so they have been adjusted for inflation). African Americans are the only racial group the Census Bureau identifies that has been left behind. White, Asian and Latino households have all seen at least modest income gains since 2000.

    “If you want more of something, subsidize it…”—Ronald Reagan “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”—Winston Churchill While President Donald Trump has vowed that United States authorities will “destroy” the gang MS-13 as part of his crackdown on crime, the Sacramento City Council voted unanimously last week to pay gang members $1.5 Million to not kill people. The controversial program the city plans to adopt, Advance Peace, claims it “interrupts gun violence in U.S. urban neighborhoods by providing transformational opportunities” to gang members involved in weapons offenses… paying them not to terrorize and...

    Gov. Jerry Brown and state politicians will receive a 3 percent pay hike starting in December, their fifth raise in as many years as California’s budget picture continues to improve. The raises, approved Monday by the California Citizens Compensation Commission, come on top the 4 percent salary increases that kicked in late last year. Brown’s pay will climb from $190,102 to $195,805, while rank-and-file lawmakers will go from $104,117 to $107,240. Salaries for other statewide politicians like Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Treasurer John Chiang also will rise. The raises, which came amid five years of...

    CARSON CITY — There’s one thing everyone can agree on: It’s nice to get paid. The problem for lawmakers is that voting yourself a pay raise is a good way to end your political career. The mailer writes itself. Nevada legislators, though, are considering an ingenious — or devious — solution to raise their salaries. Assembly Joint Resolution 10* is a proposed constitutional amendment passed by the Legislature in 2015. Nevada’s constitution requires the Legislature to pass constitutional amendments in two consecutive sessions before sending it to voters in the next general election. Setting salaries of elected officials “unfortunately politicizes...

In an internal memo obtained Friday by The Associated Press, Delta Air Lines said gate agents can offer up to $2,000, up from a previous maximum of $800, and supervisors can offer up to $9,950, up from $1,350.

    Iceland's parliament is examining a bill that would require companies to prove they offer equal pay to employees. The law, which is set to become a world first, aims to close the wage gap between men and women. Companies face auditing and possible fines if they do not comply. Iceland was ranked first in the World Economic Forum's 2015 Global Gender Gap Index, followed by Norway, Finland and Sweden. However, according to Iceland's statistics for the same year, the unadjusted gender pay gap remained at 17%. The bill, which was presented on Tuesday, is supported by the centre-right coalition government...
