Gen Z job seekers should be willing to work for free, long hours, ‘willing to do anything,’ says Squarespace CMO
  • Not to mention Travelocity broke the law by allowing her to work for free while benefiting their company.

    In general, as long as an employee is engaging in activities that benefit the employer, regardless of when they are performed, the employer has an obligation to pay the employee for that time.

  • Warren Bill Would Overturn Supreme Court Decision Gutting Federal Agency Power.
  • Again, they can, but it's less likely. It really depends on how much the genuine threat of civil unrest and violence compares against whatever benefit they get from voting a certain way (which, in perfect world, would be nothing).

    Truthfully I don't think this particular ruling was incorrect or outside the reasonable extent of their powers. Do I think the timing of it was motivated by corporate and political greed? Absolutely. It's abundantly clear that the decision, popular among conservatives, was meant to serve as a Trump "win" based on the justices he put in place (again, disturbingly contrary to the intended purpose of the SCOTUS). It's also a potentially dangerous decision to make without any time allotted to get critical regulations codified by congress.

    That all being said, while I in no way trust in the impartiality of the current SCOTUS, I do think repealing a law without fairly universal bipartisan support is a decent bit more extreme than what they did here. I think there needs to be a balance between genuine, concerning possibilities and doom-and-gloom panic.

  • Warren Bill Would Overturn Supreme Court Decision Gutting Federal Agency Power.
  • In theory that was supposed to be the strength of SCOTUS, that being secure in their employment for life (or until retirement), they had no incentive to judge along party lines for fear of future prospects. However, we've seen that judges can still be both very partisan and entirely unqualified and we can now do nothing to remove them. Turns out bribery and threats still work on them

  • Warren Bill Would Overturn Supreme Court Decision Gutting Federal Agency Power.
  • I honestly agree with the decision in a vacuum, but in reality I can't help but feel the decision was made very much with corporate interests in mind. Yeah congress should've gotten their ducks in a row long before now, but the real winner here is corporations, not constituents.

  • Warren Bill Would Overturn Supreme Court Decision Gutting Federal Agency Power.
  • Here's my understanding as a layman, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    SCOTUS could block the creation of a law if it was deemed unconstitutional, but even with a conservative SCOTUS, it's unlikely they would in this case. As in many cases, SCOTUS didn't overturn a law here, but rather changed their decision on the interpretation of the law, specifically the Administrative Procedure Act. If congress passes a law that explicitly delegates certain powers to agencies, or codifies regulations that had previously been defined by an agency, that would be harder to fight since the APA, as far as I can tell, does not prohibit it. Warren's bill is basically saying "if we can't implicitly delegate power to agencies to create regulations, we should at least be forced to quickly review suggested regulations to prevent them from getting stuck in congress."

    Again, this is just my understanding as a layman. IANAL

  • Far-right trolls have launched a racist crusade against Kamala Harris
  • People have called her and Biden "Joe and the Hoe", have implied she slept her way to the top, have called her a diversity hire, have invoked the heritage project to oust her. So yes, they've gotten racist and sexist very fast.

  • Look you've just to got read the prologue that was a limited edition IHOP giveaway in 2015 and the story is awesome
  • I have the opposite experience, I only watched it a couple years ago and thought the hype would totally kill it for me, but I actually ended up really enjoying it and EoE in particular stuck with me. I loved the idea that love is born of the risk we take of truly being known by other people.

    I will say that the quality of the Netflix dub probably helped a lot. I know they changed some translations which kinda sucks, but overall the voice acting is so much better. No hate to Spike Spencer, he's obviously a very prolific voice actor, but I think his performance of Shinji is at least part of why people thought he was so whiny. We were originally going to watch through the rebuild movies dubbed, too, but it was so bad we decided to switch to sub.

  • Look you've just to got read the prologue that was a limited edition IHOP giveaway in 2015 and the story is awesome
  • Yeah, I can get into a series if people say to skip the first couple episodes/seasons because it takes a little to figure itself out (like how you can skip the first season of Parks and Rec and miss nothing of importance), but weird watch order is not something I'll bother with.

  • Look you've just to got read the prologue that was a limited edition IHOP giveaway in 2015 and the story is awesome
  • I wouldn't bother with anything weird, just watch the series through and then the movies in release order. It might not be "optimal" but I don't think it needs to be. You can skip Death, though, since it's just a recap (there was originally a year between the end of the series and EoE)

  • Oh man, the first dog I ever got for myself was a rescue at around 2 years old so we didn't get much of a puppy phase. I was thinking "I remember my parents' dogs chewing things up for years before they settled down, I guess it just seemed that way because I was young."

    Then we got a six month old rescue and holy shit, he's a menace. A very cute and sweet one, luckily for him, but also smart, stubborn, and playful, which is dangerous combo. Thankfully he's improved a lot over the past year or so and we've learned how to not give him attention when he's being bad. It's really satisfying to see him learn and grow and start to chill out, but by God I don't know if I'll ever get another puppy. Still love him to bits, though. Great napping buddy.

  • I like my dog's energy because she motivates me to move at least a little bit each day. Of course I'm not gonna get a husky because no amount of motivation would let me keep up with them, but a good energy match in a dog is heaven to me.

    I like cats too, but I feel like I just don't "get" them as intuitively.
