WDT: Schumer on the North Side

    When you are out of the loop, you are out of the loop. Senator Chuck Schumer was just up the street this afternoon at NY Air Brake.
     The Senator greeted workers and talked $15 wage with the management.

Mr. Hawthorn is trying to tell the senator $15.00 hr is going to hurt his bottom line ? When workers finally receive the full $15.00 by 2021 they be lucky to buy 2 hamburgers and a coke for that wage. He should lay off a little dead wood on the management side of his business if he is so concerned about the company.

What a complete butthole that guy is. Dishonest, power hungry, elitist scum. Only there because NYC votes party line.

Wonder if he stopped by to meet Mr. Butler?

Of course Hogthrone screwed the workers in the last contract, then gave The Urban Mission a big donation.

“I support raising the minimum wage, absolutely, but I do think you have to take into account specific situations like this one,” he said.
What's so special about their situation? That they can relocate???

Chuckie ! no cutting the minimum wage in norther New York Because Mr. Hogthorn is threatening to move the Airbrake out of state. They have been blowing out that hot air threat for over 25 years, Why are they so special and all the rest of the businesses in the area have to pay the wage increase.
