Horror! Mother Jones exposes America’s non-ergonomically friendly working conditions

We apologize if the following story is just too difficult to read. This is a sad – very sad – report. Mother Jones has released the results of an investigation it did into the work conditions of average Americans at a Mississippi warehouse. And the results are shocking.

“And we want to start here if we could. This is very sad. It really is very tragic,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Do we have any music to go with it?”

Cue the sad and depressing music to supplement this gut-wrenching discovery.

“The audio we're going to play for you is an undercover exposé,” Glenn said somberly. “If you go undercover and take your microphones and cameras and you start to go into some of these sweat shops. You won’t believe what some of these giant corporations are asking people to do.”

“This is actual audio. We are verifying this is not Communist China,” Glenn joked. “They did get this. But the conditions are beyond imagination, and the music says it all. Here's a poor woman going in just trying to make a living. And look at what these evil capitalists have done. Thank goodness Mother Jones is there to expose the horrors of American capital.”

“If you’re driving, please pull over. If you have children, excuse them from the room,” Glenn warned. “You know, you are going to change your mind about America and capitalism when you hear this expose from Mother Jones.”

The woman speaking the clips below is the undercover reporter from Mother Jones who debunked this groundbreaking story.

VOICE: You can get in trouble for not doing enough. If I said I can't do it. So when someone comes to tell me I'm doing a bad job, and I say, ‘I'm sorry this is the best I can do,’ I will get fired.

“Can you believe if you don't do a good job you could get fired,” Pat asked exasperatedly.

“Occupy this factory,” Stu added.

But it gets worse…

VOICE: People are running around all day and doing terribly non-ergonomically friendly actions over and over and over again because you have to get down on the floor to pick up where a lot of the things are stocked, and reach up on your tippy toes. All the angles are uncomfortable. Everybody has joint pain, and knee pain, and back pain. And it's like that for 10 and a half to 12 hours a day…

Now you might be thinking, how bad could non-ergonomically friendly working conditions be? Really, really bad. Everything is not at eye-level, and she is on her tippy toes for Pete’s sake!

“I want you to brace yourself. Imagine you're in a place where they've already made you engage in ergonomically unfriendly actions. You are on your tippy toes from time to time reaching down to pick things up off the floor,” Glenn said before playing another piece of this tragedy.

VOICE: It’s funny you mention China. I asked if I could go to the bathroom during one of my first shifts on one of my first days. This isn't China. In fact if I chose to go to bathroom that meant I would have to work twice as hard when I got back from the bathroom in order to make up for the time I missed because I would be behind in my goals. It's authoritarian, and really awful, impersonal, and horrible work experience.

Listen to what this tortured individual is spending her day laboring for:

VOICE: I think having a wage is great. It depends on which obviously having a job is better than not having a job. The thing about these jobs is they will have to have somebody do them. But they don't have to do them so uncomfortably.

How horrible is it that people in this country are uncomfortably working for wages in non-ergonomically friendly work environments?

“You would never be uncomfortable doing your job. You can go to the bathroom for as long as you wanted. You would never be fired if you couldn't do the job. Just a few minutes ago I thought that's the world we lived in,” Glenn lamented.

Glenn, Pat, Stu clearly had a good time with this story, but all kidding aside, it is this type of entitlement culture that is dooming America.

“What the hell happened to you with your parents,” Glenn asked. “No, you're just dumb as a box of rocks. You're doomed to mediocrity until you destroy America!”

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?
