Cause bakery workers don't need a living wage?

Typical corruption.

McDonald's and the other fast food places should start baking some crappy bread. Would cut their labor costs by 20% even if they never sell a single loaf.

"Republican Supreme Court"

They MADE Newsom accept this money in exchange for exempting the donor from paying a living wage.

I bet Repubicans everywhere are ecstatic about this exemption. It's a perfect example of the type of deals they are for. Guess the heat's off of Newsom now from the fascist right. Bravo, Gavin!

One of the problems for you is that once your entire party becomes the cult of a corrupt criminal con man, you lose the ability to complain about any of those qualities.

You stupid cult members can't admit trump is corrupt when the evidence has buried his fat ass.

#23 - Yep, a bunch of liberals yapping whataboutism and deflection when one of their top white liberal stars gets nailed exempting someone who makes him rich from paying people a fair wage.

These voices are horribly annoying. A bunch of limp wristed freaks quite honestly.

Would you like some cheese with that whine?

Limp wristed snowflakes that somehow managed to beat the stuffing out of your hateful violent lying creepy supposedly "tough guy" in the last election. A "tough guy" who can't handle losing and who has whined for 3 years that the election was STOLLEN!

Sorry for the interruption to your whining.

You can now go back to touching yourself.

Not that it matters but if you replaced the name "Newsom" with "DeSantis"....this thread would be 200+ posts.

And Donner would be 15 of those posts.

Reading this thread ...

Defending Newsome is more important than the workers making a living wage selling bread.

Can you show me where I even remotely defended any of this?

I like Gavin but I have been concerned about many things he has said or done. This is concerning to me too.

Having said that none of it even comes close to Trumpy and the Gang's blatant criminal behavior.

Since this only affects Panera, workers who want $20/hr can simply find jobs at literally any other fast food restaurant.

Meanwhile, Panera workers in California will make $16/hr. More than double the $7.25 Federal minimum wage in Red states that don't even have a State minimum wage.

Anyway, the optics are still bad. Did Panera shares go up? That's all that matters.

And now Newsom's office calls allegations about Panera Bread franchisee absurd,' says company is not exempt from law.

But Newsom denying it doesn't really change the text of the statute.

"Under the law, the California labor commissioner will ultimately enforce compliance and could be responsible for making final determinations on which chains are exempt."

I'm pretty disappointed. I was looking forward to Newsome emerging as a dark horse candidate to save the day from both Trump and Biden. Hopefully he will recover from this scandal and find his way to the White House through whatever convoluted mechanism the powerful have created. Having said that (which also means "BUT"):

"3 Words: Republican Supreme Court"
"I love how republicans act so scandalized by newsom's corruption when it's weaksauce compared to theirs"
"One of the problems for you is that once your entire party becomes the cult of a corrupt criminal con man, you lose the ability to complain about any of those qualities."
"This is how big business operates in America. Not much different than China or any other third world country at this point."
"Scroll up trumper. Newsom is corrupt. And any republican who claims to be offended by that is full of ---- because they worship the king of corruption."
"I can admit newsom is corrupt for this little bit of corruption."
"I like Gavin but I have been concerned about many things he has said or done. This is concerning to me too. Having said that none of it even comes close to Trumpy and the Gang's blatant criminal behavior."
"Stupid cult members can't admit trump is corrupt when the evidence has buried his fat ass."
"Meanwhile, Panera workers in California will make $16/hr. More than double the $7.25 Federal minimum wage in Red states that don't even have a State minimum wage."
"Republican pretending to oppose corruption. Hilarious."

I'm still learning here, but would any of the above be considered a "whataboutism"? Asking for a friend
