There is another new blog post, “Family values and children as commodities.”
I just noticed that I have not received my final payout from Uber. Normally, it would have been in my account Wednesday (yesterday). By their own reckoning, they owe me $162.68 and they have notified me it was on the way.
This would have been the weekly payout and should not have been affected by their suspension of my access to Instant Pay.
I’m glad I quit working for them.
It seems that (white, male, slave-owning) Andrew Jackson is Donald Trump’s favorite dead president. It’d help a lot if Steven Mnuchin would explain just how it is that counterfeiting is a problem on the Harriet Tubman $20 bill and not the $10 or $50 bill or even the Jackson $20 bill. (Maybe he did: The Washington Post links to an article on a site that prohibits ad-blockers, rendering the site an unacceptable source.) I can’t help but suspect he’s choosing an alternative meaning to “counterfeit.”
