Trump is lying about jobs program

first_imgUnited Steelworkers Union Local 1999 protests outside the Carrier plant in Indianapolis, March 23.A major source of Trump’s appeal was his promise to return “good jobs” back to the United States.During Trump’s spring campaigning, a secretly recorded video received widespread attention on the internet. It showed Carrier Air Conditioner bosses announcing to workers that the Indiana plant was being moved to Mexico and the workers were losing their jobs.Trump made news of this move a poster child of his campaign. He brought it up time and time again, saying he would call up the company and threaten them with a 35 percent tariff on any air conditioners they imported from Mexico.But that threat to impose a tariff on Carrier is unconstitutional and impossible to enforce.The company didn’t back down. It announced on Nov. 11 that it was moving 1,400 jobs from the Indiana plant to Monterrey, Mexico, by 2019. Carrier’s empty words addressing the devastation to the workers were: “We are making every effort to ease the transition for our Carrier colleagues in Indiana.” (nytimes.com, Nov. 11)The company obviously didn’t want the bad publicity that Trump poured on their heads. But a Mexican worker must work a whole shift to make what a unionized worker in Indiana makes in an hour. Since Carrier’s Indiana plant is profitable, cutting labor costs by this much will mean a big increase in profits. (Indianapolis Business Journal, Feb. 10)And boosting profits is what capitalism is all about.But there was another consequence of this attack on workers. United Steelworkers Union Local 1999, representing the Carrier workers, did not endorse reactionary Trump during the primary elections.Instead, the union backed Bernie Sanders, the only mainstream candidate claiming to be a socialist.Attacks on workers may get capitalists greater profits — but can also start workers on the road to revolutionFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Meet Kinky Boots Star Kyle Taylor Parker

first_img “Until now, I’d never been in drag or danced in heels. I’ve never done makeup. I’ve never had to think about how your hair can throw off your balance, just while walking! I have so much respect for women.” Current Role: A three-month stint in Broadway’s Kinky Boots, filling in for Billy Porter as the fierce and fabulous Lola, an outspoken drag performer who becomes a specialty boot designer. Kinky Boots Show Closed This production ended its run on April 7, 2019 View Comments “My mom works in public health for prevention and awareness of HIV and AIDS, so when I was nine years old, we started moving around a lot. I lived in East Africa, West Africa, Paris and Zurich, then ended up in Wisconsin from middle to high school.” “When I started selling merchandise for In the Heights on Broadway, I thought, ‘I’m gonna be in this show someday.’ [Choreographer] Andy Blankenbuehler would give notes in the lobby, so I’d hang around with my notebook. Years later, he was giving me notes on tour! It was a full-circle moment.” “I’m the biggest theater nerd I know, and I’ve always been obsessed with Broadway. I had a big playroom as a kid, so I would put together shows and charge my grandmother and mom admission. I’d play all the characters, so it was a very long evening.”center_img “I lost my father when I had first joined the Broadway company, so it’s interesting being back in the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. Parts of my performance are a tribute to that relationship, which was a bit unfinished between the two of us. It’s been a time to reflect and to celebrate how much I’ve grown.” Age: 25 Hometown: “Wisconsin, by way of the world.” Stage & Screen Cred: After appearing in the national tour of In the Heights, Parker made his Broadway debut as an Angel in Kinky Boots. After kicking off the musical’s national tour as Lola, he’s returned to Broadway to reprise his role. “Oprah is my spirit animal! She taught me that you can shape your whole life just by thinking positively. She said, ‘Be yourself and make the best of it.’ I try to say at least one positive thing like that to myself before I take the stage.” Related Showslast_img read more

Going into the Andale game from 2012-2015, Wellington was sporting records of 1-4, 4-1, 4-0, and 3-1. After the Andale game, the Wellington teams could muster just one win per season since.Yes, the Indians have had a habit of ruining everything for our Crusaders.This year Wellington is young and have had a tough three weeks including a heart-breaking loss to Rose Hill. The No. 2 ranked Andale team will not be any form of tonic for Wellington’s wounds.Hard to pick your poison with the Indians. They simply take it to you – always have in the past 10 years.In the three games so far this season, the Indians have accumulated 1,572 yards with 1,324 yards on the ground. Tristan Dagenais has accumulated 559 yards already this season. Taylor Richter has 335 yards. Twelve runners have touched the ball sporting Andale black.Then the Indians have passed for 248 yards.In last Friday’s games, Andale outscored Mulvane 62-51 and scored every time it had the ball. It had 564 yards in total offense. Mulvane is pretty good this year.It might not be a stretch to say that Wellington’s football team may have never been as big of underdog going into this game, than they are this week.Wellington-Andale game at a glance:Andale (3-0) at Wellington (0-3) Friday at 7 p.m.Follow the game: Internet: Live twitter blogs on this site, Sumner Newscow.

Thank you for your input. 0 Vote up Vote down amw · 202 weeks ago I don’t have stats for all the games, but based on the fact that Andale’s player Dagenais, was credited for scoring 5 touchdowns last week against Mulvane (based pm sitv.com report) I would think that one of the keys to Friday night’s game would be containing that player.
