University receives award for ‘Tunnel of Oppression’ event

The university describes the “Tunnel of Oppression” as an array of rooms that participants walk through as they read posters with “educational materials on racism, sexism, religious discrimination, classism, homophobia, veteran status, and genocide as well as ableism, discrimination toward people with physical or mental disabilities; lookism, discrimination based on appearance; and transphobia, discrimination toward transgender people or gender nonconforming behavior.”

After students emerge from the tunnel, facilitators lead discussions to help them reflect on their experience.

So it’s the SJW version of the Marine Crucible?

Job loss from minimum wage hikes quantified – news not good

From Paul Jacob at Townhall:

Activists and politicians have been pushing big increases in the minimum wage in cities around the country. Seattle, Washington, has been one of those, establishing an $11.00/hour legal minimum in April of 2015, then raising that minimum by two dollars in 2016. The City of Seattle commissioned a study of “the wage, employment, and hours effects of the first and second phase-in of the Seattle Minimum Wage Ordinance,” and it shows clear results.

While the first hike had somewhat ambiguous results, the second hike led to a 9 percent reduction in hours worked at wages below $19/hour. That is a major finding.

And there’s more. More.

Reality check: You bet there’s more. Laid-off minimum wage workers will be in the increasingly dangerous position of not being needed at all, as opposed to simply having a low social status but being needed.

Help wanted: University seeks social justice warrior

From Jennifer Van Laar at Townhall:

Parents ponying up the $42,910 annual tuition at the University of Scranton will be pleased to know that the school is looking to hire a “Director of Cross Cultural Centers” to promote feminist and social justice theories through its Jane Kopas Women’s Center and its Multicultural Center.

The Director would oversee the day-to-day operations of the Centers and their staff, “who work together to develop, implement, and present programs that promote inclusion, multiculturalism, and equity, within a framework of intersectionality, social change, feminist and critical race theory, and mission of the University.”More.

Reality check: Why do parents pony up? Probably because they believe that the restoration of progressive government will enable secure, well-paying jobs wielding considerable power, making the tuition an excellent investment. So let’s not assume they are dumb.
