FAIR's Jim Naureckas takes us on a "guided tour" of the so-called "alt-right." Long story short: they're not just racist, but they're also not conservative -- I mean, do "rebellion" and "mischief" and "blasphemy" strike you as conservative values? Also, as quicker minds than mine have pointed out, the white supremacists' stated desire to be called "alt-right" smacks of political correctness. I mean, normally I call people whatever they want to be called, but not so much when they're being hypocrites.
Apple CEO Tim Cook says he won't bring back any of the $200 billion Apple holds offshore until the corporate tax system becomes more "fair." Of course, Apple doesn't move money offshore because it "has to" -- it moves money offshore because it can. And you can't even buy Mr. Cook's claim that "we sell stuff all over the world," when even a Senate committee tells us that Apple shifts its U.S.-earned profits offshore, and to Ireland, where its "subsidiary" won't pay any taxes at all. How do you know when CEOs are lying? When their mouths are open.
Speaking of Apple, China Labor Watch finds employee exploitation still runs rampant at Apple's Foxconn and Pegatron factories, where iPhones get made. It's actually worse at Pegatron, and you can't help but wonder if that's because the Foxconn facilities got all the attention earlier this decade. But Apple said they'd fix all this! That's why you can't trust corporations to just "do the right thing" -- you have to make them do the right thing.
National Labor Relations Board rules that temp employees can organize and bargain collectively for better wages and working conditions. Previously, corporations got over by claiming that their temp employees were only employed by their temp agency, but the NLRB ruled that temp workers are jointly employed by both their temp agency and the corporation for which they're actually doing the work, and thus can bargain with both employers jointly. If you're still stuck on the idea that temp workers work for temp agencies, remember that temp agencies and the corporations they staff work jointly on how those workers get paid, what work they'll do, and what the working conditions will be.
Finally, Donald Trump gets caught using campaign donations to buy up thousands of copies of his own book, so he can say it's a best-seller and spend none of his own money for it. It's a win-win! Except if you gave money to the Trump campaign, of course. It's not illegal, of course, to buy up copies of your own book to drive up book sales -- though, seriously, how many people have that kind of money? -- but it is illegal to do it with campaign funds. But don't worry -- Donald Trump will "fix" that, and all those other pesky laws civilizations depend on to restrain the unscrupulous, once he's President.
