Super-wealthy SJWs not wanted…

Stick to worrying about your agents fighting for your own MASSIVE salaries.

From NY Post: Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon, Natalie Portman and more than a dozen other A-listers were told to shove it by 500 restaurant workers in New York who signed an open letter to the actresses.

The missive is a response to a letter that the Hollywood elites sent to Gov. Cuomo asking him to raise the minimum wage for tipped workers.

“You’ve been misled that we earn less than minimum wage and that we’re somehow helpless victims of sexual harassment,” the restaurants’ workers said in their letter, which was organized by Maggie Raczynski, an Outback Steakhouse bartender in Clifton Park, NY. “Thank you for your concern. But we don’t need your help and we’re not asking to be saved,” they wrote.

Cuomo is considering raising the minimum wage for tipped workers, which is as much as $8.65 in the city for restaurant workers, to be equal to the regular minimum wage, which is rising to $15 by 2020.

“The cost of food is going to go up and the number of servers is going to go down,” Raczynski told The Post.

  1. I am still waiting for these pontificators to put their money where their mouth/opinion is. That is…. for one of them to walk on the set of their latest project (for which they are being paid multi-million dollars) and tell all the participants that they are sharing their mega-buck salary so that all get an equal recompense. … still holding my breath.

    • phoenix . . . . I rather think that will never happen. The elites like to be at the very top of what they consider to be society. Somehow they feel qualified to direct us peons. Quite a contradiction since there are rather few in the acting profession who have a higher education, they got into acting since they were unable to find suitable work actually doing something for society.

      • They got into acting because they come from the ‘right stuff’ aka the right blood lines.

      • They like to play “intercessor”. It goes with their image of themselves as representatives of the downtrodden while being above it all. There is a big difference between a saint, like St. Francis and a hypocrite, like a Hollywood actor.

        For the life of me I don’t understand why people find these creeps so fascinating. I suppose they live vicariously through them.

        Or, more likely, they got into acting by performing sexual favors…..

  2. It’s a well known fact that most of these ‘A Lister’s’ aren’t even good Tippers!

    Political party differences

    Republicans and independents are the big tippers. The poll found that 57 percent of independents and 59 percent of Republicans typically leave an average restaurant tip that exceeds 15 percent of the bill. Only 46 percent of Democrats could say the same.
    Republicans and independents are also more likely to tip hair stylists and coffee shop baristas compared to Democrats. All three tip hotel maids at about the same rate.

          I used to resist this explanation, but now I wholly embrace it after the Left provided plentiful examples of their over-the-top venomous viciousness — they’re projecting, as in psychological projection.

        • These are not logical people. In fact, they’re not even “sane”. I suspect if you handed each a brick you could convince them to beat themselves to death with it out of white hatred. They’re actually proud of their stupidity. It makes them feel like they belong to something.

  4. We have some very smart workers in New York. When wages are artificially inflated, businesses lay off staff, or they automate – also eliminating jobs. Businesses that are forced to increase wages often do away with tipping. This not only lowers total compensation, but lessons motivation.

  5. Good for Maggie Raczynski and the 500 restaurant workers who signed that letter! When will Hollyweirdos stop sticking their noses in everything and start minding their own business? The #MeToo movement still is not exposing pedophiles, who are rampant in Hellywood.

  6. I’m sure this is the latter day version of singing “The Internationale” down at the union hall. Everything we see lately ls like a cheap play. Everything is being couched politically to require people to pick one side or another. Doing so is expected to be a package deal. No substitutions.

    So one version of bullshit is pitted against another. We are currently looking at two alleged “parties” with almost identical agendas. They differ in superficial ways. One is basically claiming to be Socialist (actually Communist) while the other is claiming to be “for America” while selling out completely to Israel.

    We have leftists claiming to be fighting “fascists”. Neither of these descriptions are accurate. Either of them lead to trouble.

    I refuse to be manipulated into having to select one of two unacceptable package deals. I want the social engineering to stop. I want the endless wars for Israel to stop. I want the focus to be on doing what’s right for America, not Israel.

    I am not prepared to give away our sovereignty to some faceless “league” somewhere. We do not have to choose “globalism”. We have enough issues trying to get a grip on our own problems. We need to stop importing more problems.

    • Have you seen various recent articles (Forward, eg) with Jews bragging about today’s “antifa” being a revival of 1940s Jewish thugs who called themselves, specifically, “antifas”? The boast is that back then well known Jewish gangsters paid for thugs using bats and clubs to break up supposedly fascist anti-war marches.

      It should be obvious they’re indirectly boasting that today’s masked antifa thugs and financial backers have the same pedigree, but you never know. I wonder how other armed and masked groups can arrange for a police stand down or take it a step further as with the antifas and arrange crowd control so the victims have to run an antifa ganlet to escape with their limbs intact.

  7. Yes. This is another example of how good intentions mean absolutely nothing. These workers understand that as minimum wages rise, jobs disappear. This is because the industry affected by taxation has to survive by curtailing its labor force.
    I wish Hollywood celebrities would emulate James Woods or Ted Nugent, two men who have the common sense G.K. Chesterton always called for.

    And as for New York’s Governor Cuomo, he may not be the mental patient Jerry Brown of California is, and that’s no blessing: HE IS A THUG. Yes, the Little Do-Gooder who wants to bring back CONGESTION PRICING, after the entire Tri-State area had its bowels in an uproar for three years in a row with Bloomberg as Mayor. (Bloomberg the Citizen is STILL pushing for this massive theft!) Yes, let cab drivers and Uber drivers earn LESS—that will fix the problem!

  9. It’s not about helping them ‘get’ more money. It’s about promoting the falsity of the whole ‘minimum wage’ theory of government regulation. These restaurant workers are much wiser than these Hollywood bubble headed morons. They know what happens if the minimum wage goes up.

    Also, it DEVALUES wages of those who had gotten raises in the past. But, the communist pushing Helly weirds won’t mention that.

    Well done restaurant workers! Nice to see that there are more out there that would like to see and not hear from all the Hollywierdos about how they are there for us. no they are not! They are so disconnected that they need something to make us think they are something more than play actors.

  17. Smart bartender. She knows the higher the hourly wage, more will be taken from her tips to pay her taxes. Leave well enough alone. Making anywhere from 4.25 up gives them a take home check also.
    Sounds like these stingy actors are trying to get higher wages so they don’t feel the need to tip.
    These do gooders are laughable. I did corporate training for big restaurants for years.

  18. the comment about the cost of food going up and number of employed servers going down is exactly what happened here in Ontario when the Liberal govt raised the minimum wage to 14$ January 1. Also any that are still employed that had benefits lost them.I know a guy who told me years ago that Libtards just don’t get it, that in a competitive market besides price being deterrmined by supply and demand for it, the cost of it plays a huge role. He lent me a book called The Political Economy by Prof. Frederic Bastiat wherein he addressed all the issues we still face today

  19. Here in Ontario they raised the minimum wage to 14$ and as a business owner it’s been a disaster. Higher prices, fewer hours for staff and constant stress. It’s just a scam by the liberals to get more tax revenue. Real solution is low income people should pay less taxes.
