Clowncil Ignores "Equal Protection" Clause, Targets Handful Of Businesses For Higher Wages
The City Clowncil will be hearing and reading more about that clause, because today, apparently in honor of Thanksgiving, the Clowncil enacted a real turkey.
Rather than adopting an ordinance imposing an above-minimum wage on all businesses, or on all hotels, the Clowncil adopted an ordinance that singles out one group of businesses, in one part of town, for more onerous regulation than all the other businesses everywhere else. Specifically, the Clowncil adopted an above-minimum wage requirement for hotels near the airport.
Expect at least one lawsuit to be filed Monday. The Mayor isn't going to veto this one, my babies, because the primary beneficiaries of this illegal ordinance are the illegal aliens who work in those hotels.
You think I'm kidding? Nope. Remember the protests? Remember how the police and the protesters agreed in advance who would be arrested? That was so no illegals would be arrested -- not that it would have made a dime's worth of difference in light of our old friend Special Order 40.
Anyway, a lawsuit will be filed, and the plaintiff hotels will prevail. The Clowncil will then face a decision: back away from the uber-wage, or instead make our entire City even more hostile to business than it is already. I'm guessing the latter....
