WASHINGTON, April 18, 2015 — Hillary Clinton is on the road and riding off to Iowa in a Chevy Explorer conversion van. It’s part of her “listening tour,” in which she hopes to convince the gullible little people that she is “just like them.”
After all, Americans do love their normaloid Messiahs.
At one stop, Hillary “posed quickly for one selfie, barely slowing her gait and reached out to coo over one baby before the van’s double doors slammed behind her,” wrote POLITICO’s Annie Karni.
Hillary is stopping at fast-food joints to push “for an increase in the minimum wage,” said a Clinton aide.
Charles Wright, the manager at the Chipotle restaurant in Maumee, Ohio, told Bloomberg that Hillary left no tip.
Why leave gratuities when you believe it’s the government’s job to raise all boats… minimally?
Rich, aloof, with barely enough time to pose for selfies, Mrs. Clinton wants to represent a dying land of minimal opportunities.
A study by the National Employment Law Project found that 42 percent of Americans earn less than $15 an hour. And the fast-food service industry is one of the fastest growing employment sectors in the nation.
That is, unless you happen to be a head-shrinker.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that “industrial organizational psychologists” will lead the employment field in the U.S., increasing by more than 53 percent in a decade.
And if the Workplace Bullying Institute is to be believed, “72 percent of the American public are aware of workplace bullying,” while “72 percent of employers deny, discount, encourage, rationalize, or defend it.”
Hurray for the new America! A land of little upward mobility, increased workplace bullying encouraged by employers whose sadism rises as high-paying opportunities contract with the economy, and of millionaire demagogues campaigning for president who champion a $15 an hour minimum wage that are too cheap to leave a tip.
The profound neurosis of a nation that would elect the embodiment of societal collapse its next president will be in desperate need of industrial organizational psychologists, provided these shrinks are willing to accept $15 an hour.
