I love North Carolina’s General Assembly. This Republican dominated body know how to get the libtards in a frenzy. Since the 2010 elections, our legislature has stood before the national and local media and twerked their conservative agenda right in their faces. And I love every minute of it.
The latest fan dance is called the paperboy bill. This piece of legislation is in response to an article published by McClatchy owned papers back in September 2014. I actually blogged about it. Here is an excerpt from Heat Street:
“We appreciate our state’s news media for shedding light on the far-too-common practice of employee misclassification in North Carolina,” said Trudy Wade, a NC Republican, in a statement. “Surely the same industry that brought the problem to our attention will recognize this inconsistency between what they report and editorialize on and what they practice, and support this important reform to protect their own hard workers.”
And what does the paperboy bill do?
According to the News & Observer, state senators say the paperboy bill will close a loophole used by newspapers. The bill only applies to “carriers,” the people that deliver print newspapers.
The bill, if it becomes law, would be costly to the state’s struggling newspapers who, like most employers, are loath to add to their staff rolls.
Most liberals loath living under the standards they force upon others.
