Service workers saying 'I quit' are pushing up wages and shutting down the tradition of tipping your waiter

Matthew Horwood/Getty Images More restaurants are forgoing tips and upping wages to attract workers, according to the New York Times. It's the latest iteration of the labor crunch felt across the economy as workers quit in droves. It's also bringing tipped wages over the federal minimum wage of $7.25, something Democrats failed to pass. See more stories on Insider's business page. Nex time you go out to eat, you may pay a service charge instead of a tip. That's because the...

Budget bill reopens moderate vs. progressive divide for Democrats

By WILL WEISSERT | Associated Press WASHINGTON — One side is energized by the prospect of the greatest expansion of government support since the New Deal nearly a century ago. The other is fearful about dramatically expanding Washington’s reach at an enormous cost. They’re all Democrats. Yet each side is taking vastly different approaches to guiding the massive $3.5 trillion spending bill through Congress. The party is again confronting the competing political priorities between its progressive ...

The Eyes Of Tammy Faye Director Michael Showalter On Making A 'Religious Boogie Nights' [Interview]

"The Eyes of Tammy Faye" arrives in theaters this weekend to tell the story of pioneering televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, played by Andrew Garfield and Jessica Chastain.

Why Democrats' new plan to tax the wealthy still isn't the wealth tax the public overwhelmingly wants it to be

Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Jose Luis Magana/AP Images House Democrats' plan to tax the rich isn't quite the wealth tax progressives have long championed. The 3% surcharge proposed Monday affects income and investment gains, not net worth. A wealth tax is "the simple way" to level the playing field and pay for infrastructure, Sen. Bernie Sanders said. See more stories on Insider's business page. House Democrats are targeting the wealthy to pay for their massive i...

Chuck D Responds To Flavor Flav’s Version Of Public Enemy Reunion Stalemate

Last year, before releasing What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down, their guest-heavy return to Def Jam Records, the legendary rap rabble-rousers Public Enemy went through a weird public spat that might have been fake. After Public Enemy were announced to perform a Bernie Sanders rally in Los Angeles, longtime hypeman (and one-time reality TV celebrity) Flavor Flav loudly objected to the gig — which turned out to feature Chuck D’s PE offshoot Public Enemy Radio — on the grounds that he did no...

The Democrats are on the verge of completely and utterly blowing it for vulnerable Americans

President Biden delivers remarks. Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post via Getty Images When a new president is elected, the first midterm election is usually a loss for their party. The Democrats can easily avoid this by passing two popular bills. Failure to do so will net Republicans power after the midterms, and Biden's presidency will be moot.

‘Landmark’ labor bill still wreaking economic havoc in California

SACRAMENTO – Just for old time’s sake and because my cellphone battery was about to die, I hailed an airport taxicab during a business trip last week to the East Coast rather than my usual practice of calling for a ride using Uber or Lyft. It was a reminder of how far those gig-based transportation-network services have taken us in just a few years. I needn’t remind you of the general unpleasantness of taxicabs, with their grimy vehicles and old-fashioned credit-card readers – or how much nicer ...

Californians deserve the truth about wildfire prevention efforts

Governing a state is hard work, but governors aren’t supposed to mislead citizens, make up sympathetic stories or create rules they neglect to follow. Yet Gov. Gavin Newsom is a repeat offender of all those. His latest offense? Fudging the numbers on the state’s wildfire prevention efforts. Wildfires are burning vast swaths of California – families evacuated, habitat lost, homes, businesses and communities incinerated. Californians, assured repeatedly that wildfire prevention was a top priority ...

California needs to ensure homelessness spending is proper, timely

If it seems like there’s so much tax money being thrown at the problem of homelessness in California that no one can keep track of it, there’s now an auditor’s report suggesting that this is true. State auditor Elaine Howle recently reported on programs and agencies that are designated “high risk” because of the possibility, likelihood or history of waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement of public resources. Howle identified the state’s management of federal COVID-19 relief funds from the Coronav...

California Dreamin’: A rude awakening

Oh, California. I’m crying into my coffee, though I live back East now. Seldom have we seen the Golden State suffer. It hurts to watch. The free-spirited poets, gold miners and flower children live in lore, but the state has seen better days. A town named Paradise was lost and burned to the ground in 2018, a grim prelude to the summer’s raging wildfires. The governor recall election on Sept. 14 is the clearest indicator of California’s churn, though the discontent is about more than that. Democr...

What Sanders and Carlson get wrong about Denmark and Hungary

Ideologues at both political extremes, like Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, on the left and Fox News host Tucker Carlson on the right, have recently pointed to pet foreign countries as exemplars of what America should strive to be. Yet Sanders and Carlson are each misled by a superficial understanding of what these countries are really about. As a proud, self-described socialist, Sanders thinks Denmark is a socialist paradise. But in reality, it’s far more free-market oriented than most people g...

Sen. Sanders touts government’s virtues in Trump country

By Will Weissert and Darron Cummings | Associated Press WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Bernie Sanders has long argued — but not proved — that his big government populism can win over voters in the largely white, rural communities that flocked to Republican Donald Trump in recent elections. Now, as the chief Senate shepherd of a $3.5 trillion budget proposal, Sanders believes he has another chance to test the theory. The Vermont senator is in Trump country this weekend, promoting a budget plan packed w...
