Trump’s Labor Board Nominees On The Cusp Of Confirmation After Committee Vote

The Daily Caller | 7/19/2019

Warren also slammed Emanuel for spending decades at Littler Mendelson and other law firms that she characterized as some of the most notorious union-busting firms around. After the hearing, Warren took to Twitter to further air her grievances.

“Appeasing Big Labor is clearly a higher priority for Sen. Warren than supporting individuals who are committed to spurring job creation and helping Americans get back to work,” Jeremy Adler, communications director with the Republican firm America Rising Squared, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Much to her chagrin, these nominees will reform the NLRB so that it no longer stands in the way of growth and opportunity for workers across the country.”

A Whirlwind Week for the Fight for $15

Inside Sources | 7/6/2017

Study Emboldened Critics

The University of Washington study, at the very least, has likely emboldened critics. Jeremy Adler, communications director for the conservative nonprofit America Rising Squared, sees the past week as reinforcing the concerns critics have been expressing.

“The past week’s developments have crystallized the fatal flaw with the so-called ‘Fight For $15,’” Adler said in a statement provided to InsideSources. “Their SEIU-funded effort is centered around the idea of helping workers, but as the ‘very credible’ U-Washington study showed, their push has actually hurt workers.”

Washington Examiner | 7/3/2017

Study: Seattle’s Minimum Wage Hike Hurting Low-Income Workers

LifeZette | 6/27/2017

Calculated for the year, that represents a total loss of $1,500 in earnings — a serious and significant reduction in income for a low-wage worker.

“This important study ought to be a big wake-up call that the ‘Fight for $15’ minimum wage effort is actually hurting those they say they want to help — reducing incomes and eliminating economic opportunities for low-income Americans who need them most,” said Jeremy Adler, communications director of America Rising Squared, a conservative political group on the forefront of the minimum wage debate.

A Tale Of Two Minimum Wage Studies

InsideSources | 6/26/2017

Economists have come to various conclusions on whether the $15 minimum wage is good policy. The University of California, Berkeley, found in a study June 20 that the Seattle policy helped to increase wages while having little impact on employment. Studies elsewhere have found employment loss can be severe, especially for low-skilled workers.

“This important study ought to be a big wake-up call that the ‘Fight for $15’ minimum wage effort is actually hurting those they say they want to help — reducing incomes and eliminating economic opportunities for low-income Americans who need them most,” Jeremy Adler, communications director for the conservative nonprofit America Rising Squared, told InsideSources in a statement.

Report: $15 Minimum Wage In Seattle Killed Jobs

Washington Free Beacon | 6/26/2017

Labor watchdogs said that the study should serve as a “wake-up” call to those who have led the campaign to drastically overhaul the minimum wage.

“This important study ought to be a big wake-up call that the ‘Fight for $15′ minimum wage effort is actually hurting those they say they want to help—reducing incomes and eliminating economic opportunities for low-income Americans who need them most,” America Rising Squared spokesman Jeremy Adler said in a statement.

In Search of a Star: Desperate Democrats Turn to Losing Candidate Under Age 40

Breitbart | 6/20/2017

But there is no evidence yet that Kander can somehow translate his young energy into electoral success in a serious national election.

“The Democrats’ bench has been so depleted that their candidates are now forced to share the stage with political losers like Jason Kander,” Missouri Rising Communications Director Jeremy Adler says. “Newsflash to the former Missouri Secretary of State: you have to actually win high-profile races if you want to become a national figure.”

Speaking of which, Kander appeared in Georgia on Monday to rally for Democrat Jon Ossoff, who is running against former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel in the 6th congressional district for Dr. Tom Price’s seat. Price was appointed by President Donald Trump as Secretary of Health and Human Services earlier this year. Ossoff has run his campaign on Bernie Sanders ideas and received the Independent, progressive Vermont senator’s endorsement earlier this year.

As America Rising put it:

Kander’s appearance in Georgia today is great evidence for the problem Democrats are facing in a nutshell. Because their party’s bench is so depleted, their candidates are now forced to campaign with political no-names that carry no weight and are more famous for their losses than anything else. For the sake of his own presidential ambitions, Kander better hope he doesn’t transfer the losing gene to Ossoff before Tuesday.

The Daily Caller | 6/9/2017
