Culture Tweet of Metro worker eating on train could cost DC author her book deal - Could? It already did.

Why is nobody suggesting the rule be changed if the rule is so stupid? Why are we mad at the violator and attempted enforcer of the rule, rather than the system that keeps that rule in place?

The drivers get no lunch break? That sounds pretty illegal, so I'm gonna press X hard there...

I may of missed it, but why is this being assumed as a racial thing? I personally don't give two shits who is eating on a train/bus, and if someone does care (especially if there's rules against it) I also don't give two shits. A career being ruined for this is ridiculous.
Here's some of her recent 1 star book reviews, just from the first few at the top of goodreads, there's close to 1700 of them now.

didn't actually read the book. I just came here to let any potential buyers know that Natasha Tynes, the author, attempted to have a black woman fired from her job working for the DC metro just because she was eating her breakfast when Natasha is not allowed to.
The author publicly tried to get a Black Woman fired because she was eating, research the author before you read the book.
Shame on Natasha Tynes, her faux-liberalism and her anti-Blackness.
Natasha Tynes, the author, is a racist who targets and publicly shamed innocent workers in their commute to work for SIMPLY EATING at 9am.
This author is harmful towards Black women. She is trash, so her book is trash.
I didn't read this book nor will I ever. I just want to share that this author is harmful towards WOC, specifically Black women, and doesn't deserve your support.

The social justice crowd never misses a chance to pounce on one of their own, it's seen as a greater crime than everyday 'normie' prejudice because they think that she's supposed to know better.

I am also starting to suspect that cancel culture is at its loudest when the people doing the call-outs know that the person being called out has something to lose.

I want to know what exactly crossed this bitch's mind when she saw this lady trying to fucking eat. Trying to fulfill a basic requirement for staying the fuck alive here. Like, does she think this lady is doing it because she just fucking loves the ambiance of public transit? Fucking cunt, she's doing it because she's hungry and has no other good options. Fuck off, leave her alone.

It's not illegal and is probably more common than you think.

The law in DC:

Meals and Breaks
District of Columbia labor laws do not have any meal or break requirements for employers, thus the federal rules apply. The federal rule does not require an employer to provide either a meal (lunch) period or breaks. However, if an employer chooses to do so, breaks, usually of the type lasting less than twenty (20) minutes, must be paid. Meal or lunch periods (usually thirty (30) minutes or more) do not need to be paid, so long as the employee is free to do as they wish during the meal or lunch period. DOL: Breaks and Meal Periods.

Wow ok then. I stand corrected. I don't say this often but I think we need a federal law for this...

Uh, the hard left are the ones who support workers the most, as in actual socialists/communists who don't fall for bourgeois neoliberal "look at this filthy mud person I'm gonna call them out for woke points on twitter" bullshit. Your entire political framework needs re-working m8. Sorry to go full mad at the internet but that was one of the most astoundingly wrong posts I've ever read here. Like, who backs unions and shit that helps workers if not leftists?
Lol, if you find a modern socialist/communist that isn't a bougie cream-puff who believes in post-modernist IDpol calvinball philosophy you let me know. They are an endangered species, if not completely extinct.

You tell me which ones in this video are the pinko commies who are the workers. Hint: it isn't the same group.

I hate this thing about "black bodies". They really don't believe that blacks have "behavior", do they?
I feel like they picked that word, bodies, because they think that it conveys some kind of shared humanity between all human bodies. At least, that's the gist I got in school.
A lot of the people who use that word think it's really erudite and scientific sounding.
In reality I feel it's an auspicious expression of how these folks really think. At the end of the day, social justice reduces people to nothing more than bodies, nothing more than skin color or sexual orientation. It's fitting, for them.

What kind of socialist fights against the working class that should form the base of their support? What the fuck is this lady on? She's so disconnected from their actual needs and struggles.

Black people cannot follow rules and trying to enforce civilization on them is wrong.

But bitch should’ve just contacted the employer privately instead of whining on twitter.

Cunts like her get a brief thrill on seeing someone get in trouble because it makes them feel powerful. That’s the main draw of being an SJW.

Has what I said gotten through? That the far left are completely out of touch and do not understand the desires of the working class?

Here's another hot take. They do not wish to understand. People who have skills and employment are more privileged than whatever group they are currently championing that ranks higher on the progressive stack. In this case it was tent city heroin addicts who are burying downtown in shit, the parts that they haven't stolen for drug money that is.

They have stratified class/race/sex/whatever struggle to a ridiculous degree. The only thing that matters is tearing down others so that we can all be equally pitiful. If you are a worker and have your shit even remotely together, you are on their list. You have something that someone else doesn't so fuck you.

They only give support to workers when the issue is "punching up" against whatever the next strata is. Unless it conflicts with some other ideological hazard, of course. Like when those union guys building Dakota Access got harassed by them and equipment destroyed. Those workers had to take pretty serious security precautions because the rabid left were so against them and their work.

The only thing I see here is a class issue. Upper-middle-class bitch tries to bitch about a working class woman, who dares to eat something between shifts. That is just shit and arrogant behaviour. How dare this peasant is trying to eat something while commuting from one shift to the next?!

What makes me wonder because the race card is hurled around, how the reaction would have been if the worker in question had been white?! Would the hoard have applauded the brave and stunning author for bringing up this horrible, horrible crime of eating between shifts? Or would this already basically non-issue died a silent death, because no race card to pull here?
:thinking:
