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!”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
