Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
New York, once a top job producer and wage leader, now has all of its major cities in a Forbes nationwide top ten list of cities with the largest wage cuts. NYC, Albany, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo all made the list of shame, along with smaller Poughkeepsie. High taxes and low wages? Sign ‘Puter up!
In other good news, the pathetically dysfunctional and self-parodying New York State Senate Democrats fired approximately 200 staff members when they briefly took back majority status. The staffers were fired because they were White, and hiring officials have been instructed only to hire Blacks to fill the vacated positions. You’ve heard of cops harassing motorists for “driving while Black”? Well, New York’s own legislature has now created a new crime, “working while White.” Top that, Deep South!
With apologies to Animal House’s writers, “Poor, racist and stupid is no way to go through life, son.”
