NYT warns the ‘workers’ that Trump really doesn’t have their best interests at heart

Article:

 

 

There is something actually touching about the profound detachment of the New York Times from blue collar America, once you get past the condescension and perceive the underlying naiveté of the know-it-alls. Steven Greenhouse, the longtime labor correspondent uses the Labor Day weekend Sunday Times to ask, “Is Trump Really Pro-Worker?”

 

I love it when progressive intellectuals throw around the word “worker,” as if it were 1917, not 2017. It reeks of nostalgia for a lost vision.

 

The arguments he marshals are what you’d expect Times readers to value. The graphic deployed by the Times actually depicts Trump as factory effluent, from a circa 1917-looking factory:

…this Labor Day, his first while in office, it remains unclear whether Mr. Trump’s initiatives have done much to help workers, whether blue-collar or any other collar. It is clear, however, that he has taken several steps that will hurt workers, most notably his decisions to delay, weaken or erase Obama-era workplace regulations. For instance, his administration has postponed rules that protect workers from dangerous silica dust and beryllium.

This is obligatory:

 

Environmentalists warn that these moves [loosening coal restrictions] will accelerate global warming and despoil coal country, and many economists predict that these moves will add few coal jobs. Coal-mining employment peaked at more than 800,000 in the 1920s and has slid to around 50,000 — one-eighth the number of Home Depot jobs — largely because of more efficient mining technologies and the increased use of cleaner energy substitutes like natural gas, solar and wind.

 

Completely missing: employment data. There is, in fact, an elephant in the bathtub with the Times, and it is being ignored.

Around here the signs for roadwork are politically correct, even here in Podunk: Workers. Not the old Men At Work, or Workmen Ahead, just Workers. Probably the only signs you can buy now. I was strongly tempted to put up a bunch of sighs after them:

 

Workers

 

Of The

 

World

 

Unite!

 

Burma Shave

 

But as for the NYT's concern about workers, how are they treating their layoffs?

Why is this news. Everyone, except his most fanatic supporters, know that Trump is only out for himself. He is a politician and all politicians are narcissists and out for themselves.
