And Now, Another Word From Mental Giant Matt Yglesias

A leftard’s thinking man.

Matt Yglesias economics correspondent at Slate‘s Moneybox. And an iconic example for leftards everywhere!

Matt penned an article critical (and arguably justifiable) of Apple.  So, how does he promote his critique of Apple?

He’s so repulsed by Apple he’s going to use his Mac to tell the world how repulsive they are!!!!

Damn!

    Sorry, I disagree. THe employees do not have to submit to the “search”. Like everyone else in a free society, they are free to find a company that either pays them for searches, or does not conduct them.

    Matt Yglesias is simply being an incompetent idiot and a hypocrite at the same time.

      Well, in the US, we have laws. If they’re going to oblige your time, then they have to pay you. It isn’t the searches, it’s the time. And, I would think, easily won in a class action suit.

      • PhilJourdan says:

        Actually no. It is no more “winnable” than saying companies must pay for your uniform. Since it is not “work time” (in that they are not performing their job duties) it is not a legal matter, but a contractual one,

      • suyts says:

        I don’t know Phil, I’m pretty sure this has already been hashed out in the courts. Unless the employees specifically signed a contract stating they’d give their time away at the behest of the company, then they probably have to pay them. Else wise, the company is in violation of their contract for the hourly wage they said they’d pay the employees.

    The senators cited a recent interview in which Secretary of Education Arne Duncan described DoED’s role. The senators noted that “[g]iven that the Administration spent the last several months warning of alleged catastrophe from cutting approximately $85.3 billion out of a $3 trillion budget as part of sequestration, it is particularly surprising that unrelated resources, which previously could not be reduced, are now being used to implement or promote the health care law.”

    GOOD QUESTION!
