U.S. makes it harder to sue corporations over franchise wage law violations


(Reuters) - The Trump administration has made it harder for employees of fast-food restaurants or other big franchises to sue corporations when individual franchise owners violate wage laws, a step that was a top priority for business groups.

The U.S. Department of Labor on Sunday issued a rule that will make it more difficult to prove companies are liable for wage law violations of their contractors or franchisees. The rule takes effect in March, and should help franchisors who have been sued by workers in recent years for wage-law violations by franchisees.

McDonald’s Corp has faced a series of high-profile lawsuits claiming it is a so-called “joint employer” of franchise workers. The company won a major victory in October when a federal appeals court in San Francisco said McDonald’s was not liable for alleged wage-law violations by a franchise owner.

In 2017, the department repudiated legal guidance from the Obama administration that had expanded circumstances in which a company could be considered a so-called joint employer under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia in a statement said the rule furthers President Donald Trump’s effort to address regulations that hinder economic growth.

“By giving greater clarity to businesses who want to work together, we promote an entrepreneurial culture that has driven American prosperity for decades,” Scalia said.

Unions and worker advocacy groups had opposed the rule after the Labor Department proposed it last April. The union-backed National Employment Law Project said on Monday that the rule would allow companies to avoid liability even when they have some control over working conditions, and would prevent many workers from recouping pay they are owed under the FLSA.
The rule returns to an earlier four-part test under which companies are considered joint employers only if they hire, fire, and supervise employees, set pay, and maintain employment records. That would likely exclude many franchisors and companies that hire contract labor.

The Obama administration’s guidance included several other factors, such as the nature of the work being performed and whether workers were integral to a company’s business. The business community complained that approach threatened the franchise business model and would lead to a spike in lawsuits.

As we all know,labor protection laws 'hinder economic growth' and the fast food sector of the economy is vital to the nation for its low wages and contribution to meaningful GDP

Trump 'wins' again at the expense of the working classes he pretends to represent

Low unemployment isn’t worth much if the jobs barely pay


Each month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases its Employment Situation report (better known as the “jobs report”) to outline the latest state of the nation’s economy. And with it, of late, have been plenty of positive headlines—with unemployment hovering around 3.5%, a decade of job growth, and recent upticks in wages, the report’s numbers have mostly been good news.

But those numbers don’t tell the whole story. Are these jobs any good? How much do they pay? Do workers make enough to live on?

Here, the story is less rosy.

In a recent analysis, we found that 53 million workers ages 18 to 64—or 44% of all workers—earn barely enough to live on. Their median earnings are $10.22 per hour, and about $18,000 per year. These low-wage workers are concentrated in a relatively small number of occupations, including retail sales, cooks, food and beverage servers, janitors and housekeepers, personal care and service workers (such as child care workers and patient care assistants), and various administrative positions.

Just how concerning are these figures? Some will say that not all low-wage workers are in dire economic straits or reliant on their earnings to support themselves, and that’s true. But as the following data points show, it would be a mistake to assume that most low-wage workers are young people just getting started, or students, or secondary earners, or otherwise financially secure:

  • Two-thirds (64%) of low-wage workers are in their prime working years of 25 to 54.
  • More than half (57%) work full-time year-round, the customary schedule for employment intended to provide financial security.
  • About half (51%) are primary earners or contribute substantially to family living expenses.
  • Thirty-seven percent have children. Of this group, 23% live below the federal poverty line.
  • Less than half (45%) of low-wage workers ages 18 to 24 are in school or already have a college degree.
These statistics tell an important story: Millions of hardworking American adults struggle to eke out a living and support their families on very low wages.

The stronger the argument you make against them, the stronger their defense mechanism becomes. The frustration only leaves you playing their game, and places them on even footing with you... a place they have no business being.

Giuliani letter proves Ukraine scheme was about helping Trump personally and was not in the public interest





The House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday transmitted a treasure-trove of new evidence to the House Judiciary Committee.

The digital files, stored on two flash drives, include records from Lev Parnas, the indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, the former New York City mayor who is President Donald Trump’s private defense attorney.

Eric Lipton, a New York Times investigative reporter, flagged on letter in particular.

The letter was from Giuliani to Volodymyr Zelensky and was dated May 10th — after Zelensky won the election on April 21st, but before he was sworn in on May 20th.

In the letter, Giuliani makes clear that he is working for Trump’s personal benefit, not the United States.

“I am private counsel to President Donald J. Trump. Just to be precise, I represent him as a private citizen, not as President of the United States,” Giuliani wrote. “This is quite common under American law because the duties and privileges of a President and a private citizen are not the same.”

“Separate representation is usual process,” Giuliani claimed.

Trump’s lawyer went on to request a meeting prior to Zelensky being sworn-in, in his “capacity as personal counsel to President Trump and with his knowledge and consent.”

Prominent Republican lawyer described the letter as, “I would like you to do us a favor though.”
