He's only doing federal workers.
And you don't think workers will be cut?

A mandated $15-an-hourminimum wage plus military defense spending cuts mean extremely valuable military contractors will be cut. The military and nation will be weakened and made less safe.
But that is what China wants and they have paid Biden and his family so well for it.

If you raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour, and open the gates to illegal immigrants, then unskilled youthful workers, including many African American US citizens, will have difficulty finding jobs.
That seems to be the plan. I was just watching Lou Dobbs now and he reported one of creepy Joe's EO's were to stop construction on the wall immediately.

Just think of how many jobs could be created if they didn't have to pay workers at all!
After millions were laid off because of the plandemic, it's probably not a good time to make it much more difficult for the unemployed to find jobs, don't you think? Only a complete fool (I am not referring to you, but economic leaders) would raise the minimum wage right now.

It seems like most of Biden's urgent initiatives for America that he is implementing will also work to kill American jobs and global competitiveness. Priorities are Climate Change, Racial Justice, and Immigration? Really?

Day 1 - weaken America. It's like Schumer said, "First we take Georgia, and then we change [destroy] America.

Cancel the Keystone Pipeline, really? Those aren't minimum wage jobs in general, but the laid off workers might be looking for some under this admin.

Laughable rationalizing garbage. People can deal with the facts and make better decisions than with Trump's lies.
There was no lie.
Yes there was, Trump ADMITED IT, ON TAPE

He told Woodward that this thing is 5 times more deadly than strenious flu and that he always likes to play it down, while telling public that it is flu-like.

Whats next? Trump didn't say that he grabs women by the pussy?

Add this to the fact that businesses now have to redo their entire salary structure. Employees who have been at a job for years aren’t going to be happy with a kid with no experience making as much or more than them immediately. Multiple dollar an hour raises across the board will destroy a lot of small businesses. Or reduce employees and hours so much they may as well be closed.

Biden didnt call travel bans xenophobic.

Yes he did. Only a moron would think this tweet from Biden, the day after the travel restrictions were announced, could be referring to anything else:

Biden supports china travel ban


so when Biden said xenophobia, he was referring to Trump's racist remarks. "China Flu", "Kung Flu", etc. its all racist dog whistling.

And they did just fine developing the vaccine.
But they're also selling it in other countries.
If your point is one about Trump admin, not really developing the vaccine but rather his team successfully DISTRIBUTING the vaccine to Americans, then it's just plain wrong. Administration failed misserably at meeting it's own distribution goals.


"By the end of this year, 20 million Americans could be vaccinated," Azar effused on Dec. 14, cheering as the first shots were administered at George Washington University Hospital. "By the end of January, 50 million Americans could have had a first vaccination."

But the Trump administration's heady optimism about vaccine development has collided with sluggish vaccine rollout, tarnishing the $15 billion-plus effort they hoped to leave as a legacy.

Only about 13 million Americans have received their first dose of the vaccine, according to federal data, a far cry from the 30 million-plus people that the Trump administration had hoped to vaccinate by now. Logistical breakdowns have plagued the process; just more than one-third of doses distributed by Operation Warp Speed have been administered, and the initiative's top military official recently issued a public apology for misleading states on how many vaccine doses they'd get.


So they didn't meet that goal, but the shots are being provided. At least we have the shots to give. In the entire world only 50 million have been given out, and we got 11 million of that total. That's besides the fact a lot of problems happened stateside. They didn't prepare to do mass vaccinations. Remember it was your people that said Trump and his team are full of shit stating we will have a vaccine out by the end of 2020. They were correct in a way. We didn't have a vaccine, we had two of them.
Wrong, wrong again.

You are not reading - Logistical breakdowns have plagued the process; just more than one-third of doses distributed by Operation Warp Speed have been administered.

"people" said that vaccine may show up in late 2020, but population will not get widely vaccinated untill the spring. Thats not bullshit, thats fact.

If they could do it on their own they would not have cut into their own profit margin by hiring someone else in the first place. If you cant afford to pay your workers a decent wage you have no right to be in business.
It's called competition, ever hear of it before?
Why yes , I have heard of competion. Businesses are competing for labor,hence paying more than minimum wage. Didnt need the government to make them do it Einstein.
He's only doing federal workers.
Oh brother. Where did you get that?? Not in the Ops post.

Oh and Fed workers are payed with our hard earned tax dollars. You want to pay some newbie $15 bucks and hour. Then pay it on your job site.
I can tell you have not been in the min wage job arena lately many places already pay far more than seven bucks an hour. I don't know of any one that would work for seven dollars an hour.
Hey, my State just went to $15 an hour minimum wage and I can see many small businesses closing. None of them can afford to pay that much and the larger companies will just pass the cost onto the consumer. Not a good idea at all.
Someone will take their place if they cant afford to keep doing business. Its real simple.
If that's what you believe you're really that simple.
True genius is the ability to keep things simple. People that have little to no clue about things try to make it complex in order to fool others and disguise the fact that they dont know what they are talking about.
Yes, you clearly are a true genuis.
So what you are saying is -- government should stay out of it and let the free markets decide??

Cool.....

Suppose that "free market" talk don't apply to Twitter tho huh
Sure it does. The second they edit content they're subject to lible laws.
How's tha Baker doing?

I'm not talking about Fauci, I'm talking about leftists who constantly said it wouldn't get done.

The logistical problem begins with shipping and storage, since the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines must be kept in the freezer. (The Pfizer vaccine requires an especially cold freezer.) But the logistical problem doesn’t end once the vaccine arrives at its final destination. The process of vaccinating thousands of people in a single location is a challenge in and of itself.

To facilitate the process, patients must register ahead of time rather than standing in line. Not only does this reduce the risk of social congestion, but it allows more efficient allocation of vaccines, which reduces waste.

Another logistical problem is the observation period required after a person receives the jab. Patients must remain socially distanced, but waiting rooms in most facilities aren’t all that big. Therefore, the rate at which people can be vaccinated is capped.

Angry politicians have made things worse. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s solution is to fine everyone. Healthcare providers that are too slow to vaccinate will be fined $100,000, while those that speed things along by giving the vaccine too freely will be fined $1,000,000. The result is predictable: 54% of New York’s vaccines are sitting idle, and some have been thrown in the trash. Apparently, fines don’t fix logistical problems.


How to speed up the sluggish rollout

Two things. First, mass vaccination programs for the general public should occur in large spaces, such as mostly idle school gymnasiums and cafeterias. Also, because so many people are working from home, there is a lot of empty retail space that could be converted into makeshift clinics.



So as we can see from this article, most of the distribution problems are local and not federal, and certainly have nothing to do with Trump administration. The vaccines are getting there (perhaps not as quickly as could be) but the real problem is the disorganization and lack of planning by local governments.
