Here’s someone who supports the dumbest strike ever. She isn’t the most sympathetic advocate for higher wages for entry level work. See if you can spot all the reasons.

John Phillips and I did a segment featuring this video for Next Generation TV today. Look for it there later this evening.

Bryan Preston has been a leading conservative blogger and opinionator since founding his first blog in 2001. Bryan is a military veteran, worked for NASA, was a founding blogger and producer at Hot Air, was producer of the Laura Ingraham Show and, most recently before joining PJM, was Communications Director of the Republican Party of Texas.

Number one reason why she is not a sympathetic figure in the whole discussion; that shirt! Honey, if you want to be taken seriously drop the whole SEXY! business. You aren't a flirting teenager anymore. And your baby will learn to read before you know it.

Yes, and if you like your current cable package, you can keep it!

Lets see.

1) In the very first shot there is a fairly new laptop.

2) GIANT TV in the living room. I make 65k a year and I don't have a TV that big.

3) On her paycheck that she's whining about, they make the mistake of displaying it on screen. In a 2 week period, she worked 10.77 hours. If she'd been paid $15 an hour her paycheck would have been about $145 for that period. You want more money? SHOW UP TO WORK. If she'd worked 25 hours a week, she would have been paid for 50 hours and that same paycheck would have been $332 (after taxes taken out).

4) By her OWN BUDGET, she has a monthly income of $2060, and monthly expenses of $1310. So what exactly is the problem here with her income?

This is just laughable.

did I hear that right? At the end it states she wants to own her own business one day?

then she should be aware that for the 10 or 15 yrs the owner receives NO steady paycheck as any revenue generated goes back to debt payback and investment.

And how would she like it if her employees demanded more pay than what they are worth?
And the business owner is the one who's butt is on the line when the employee screws up. Is she able to take on that type of responsibility? I doubt it.

Not to sound like a scold or a liberal (BIRM) she did say that she had to drop out of school when her boyfriend lost his job, so it is possible that they bought the TV and laptop when he was making better money. But to echo other comments a) I don't have a TV that big, and b) they appear to still have cable. If things are that bad, you sell off your big TV and get rid of cable.

young newly married people usually have two or more of everything: car, TV etc. My spouses assistant took a day off to take her 6 month old daughter to the fair. Most important to her that her 6 month old takes part in everything of great value. She's sure her daughter knows what it's all about.

It MIGHT be that her employer doesn't allow her to work more hours because of Obamacare. Often, in such cases, senior employees get to work up to 30 hours/week, the less senior employees get the hours left. Many part-time employees want more hours, but can't get them, due to Obama's policies.

I do agree that she could do with a smaller (or no) TV. Cable TV is pretty expensive, and not necessary. I make considerably more than she does, and do quite well without it.

At least she is working; many of her generation don't.

You make a good point, but then what is she doing with the rest of her time? Even if we assume that the pay period is one week, eleven hours leaves a lot of free time, especially since the shack-up boyfriend (whether he is the baby-daddy is never mentioned) is now sitting at home watching ESPN on the giant TV and can watch the baby.
