Big Real Estate’s No on Prop. 21 Campaign Keeps Trying to Trick and Confuse California Voters

Yes on 21 campaign files a cease & desist letter with several broadcast television stations over a “False and misleading No on Proposition 21 TV spot featuring Gov. Gavin Newsom entitled `Go Backward'”

Once again, the Yes on Prop. 21 campaign is fighting back against Big Real Estate’s constant lies and deceit in its multi-million-dollar effort to kill Proposition 21, a November ballot measure that will allow cities to enact or expand rent control policies that limit rent increases and help keep families in their homes. Wall Street landlords Blackstone Group, Essex Property Trust, and Equity Residential, among other publicly traded real estate investment trusts, are the leading contributors and decision makers behind the No on Prop 21 campaign.

“The real estate industry has long been known for doing whatever it takes to make bigger profits. So, we’re not surprised that Wall Street landlords are up to their dirty tricks

Google contractor accused of offshoring jobs in retaliation for union campaign

Google contractors who recently unionized say their jobs are being slowly shipped to Poland. On Thursday, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) filed a complaint laying out the allegations against HCL America, an engineering and IT contractor that works with Google in Pittsburgh.

Obtained by Motherboard, the complaint argues the jobs are being outsourced in retaliation for legitimate union activity. In particular, the NLRB says the conduct took place “because employees formed, joined and assisted the Union and engaged in concerted activities, and to discourage employees from engaging in these activities.”

None of the affected workers are legal employees of Google, but they specialize in engineering and IT tasks for HCL. The contractors voted to unionize in 2019, organizing under the United Steelworkers union. According to the complaint, the company has failed to bargain with the newly formed unit and has transferred work previously undertaken by the team to

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (KABC) — Police in Florida have released bodycam video of their takedown of Brad Parscale, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump.

In the video from Sunday, police in Fort Lauderdale can be seen and heard talking to Parscale, and then, when they say he disobeyed their orders, they tackle him.

The standoff started after Parscale’s wife fled the home and asked for help from a real estate agent showing a nearby house, officials said. They called 911, and officers responded.

According to police, Parscale’s wife called to say her husband possibly shot himself.

It turned out, he had not, though she told them he had been making suicidal comments recently.
