Posted on 09/08/2015 6:38:45 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Speaking at a Labor Day rally in Hampton, Ill., today Hillary Clinton threatened to imprison employers for wage theft.
Were going to go back to enforcing labor laws, Clinton said. Im going to make sure that some employers go to jail for wage theft and all the other abuses that they engage in.
And we are going to make it harder and harder to stop what should be the right of every American: to join a union and bargain collectively through that union, she continued. But, Ill tell you, weve got a fight on our hands.
The presumed 2016 Democratic candidate also endorsed President Obamas executive order mandating government contractors provide employees paid leave.
I was very proud that President Obama said today he is going to require federal contractors to provide seven days of earned paid sick leave, she said. And hes going to fight for paid family leave, something that Ive been fighting for for 30 years and were going to get it done. Its not right to treat working people as though they dont have other responsibilities.
Did she say that in one of her orange jumpsuits? Some prosecutors have flipped her perhaps?
Is there such a thing, or is Hillary just saying she'll jail anyone who doesn't pay whatever she deems appropriate?
So the Obama administration is not enforcing labor laws at all?
Sounds like Obama needs to squeeze her a bit tighter on this e-mail thing. Send a message, you know.
Somehow, I don’t think this refers to going after Pelosi’s husband.
She is going to make sure employers “go to Jail”??? She must be looking for white collar company in the orange jumpsuits with whom she can trade stock tips, discuss recipes and recount past luxury foreign travels.
From each according to his ability, to each according to PIAPS' whims.
RE: What is “wage theft?”
That my friend, is the danger — it has not been defined. Therefore, it will be anything Hillary and her cohorts decide it will be.
She only wants more people to be there so she’s not alone when she goes herself.
LOL hearing Hilary talking abut the sins of others, reminds us of the teaching of Jesus about finding specks in someone else’s eye, while you have a log in your own.
Hillary has no shame and is an embarrassment to this nation. Those who still give her over 50% approval ratings show they have no moral principles.
Bernie Sanders is an outright Socialist.
So to out lefty him she is going to go full on Red Terror Bolshevik.
...Hillary: I’m going to make some employers go to jail...
She must be ready to roll on some co-conspirators.
May Hillary Clinton go to jail.
The real “wage theft” is taxes. I suggest we arrest everyone in D.C.
“Hillary” and “jail” go together, but not in the way she’s talking about.
“Wage theft” is right up there with “voter suppression”.
Is she trying to pick her cellmates?
Well, under Hillarycare she threatened to jail doctors who didn’t obey her diktats, so.......

I’ve heard wage theft described as a situation in which employees are not paid time and a half for their overtime work, or if they are working off the clock and not getting paid at all.
What gets me about that is that these labor practices are already against the law. So what’s up with Hillary saying we’re going to “go after” this alleged problem? Is it really a huge problem? If so, it’s already against the law. If not a problem, then what’s the deal with talking about it?
Like "Micro-Aggression" it is another leftist fabrication designed to demonize or criminalize various aspects of everyday life.
