Meghan McCain: Employers or the Government Should Double the Pay of Essential Workers

Seen here working from her home studio where she mistakenly thinks Whoopi Goldberg can’t burst through a window and tell her, “GIRL, please stop talking,” Meghan McCain recently opined over the weekend that she’s offended by people saying that they hope pregnancy will make her, well, less of a Meghan McCain.

But in an odd twist, it appears that foolishly being fertilized by Ben Domenech’s seed has softened the beer heiress and frequent MY FATHER™ screamer. During a discussion on Amazon and Instacart delivery drivers going on strike, Meghan not only demanded that employers double the pay of essential workers, but if they don’t, the GOVERNMENT should step in and do it. “Hardcore conservative” Meghan McCain said that!

Via Decider:

McCain noted that she’s been especially reliant on delivery workers because her pregnancy puts her at a higher risk of experiencing serious COVID-19 symptoms. “I’ve been railing about this for weeks,” said the outspoken conservative. She agreed that these employees should receive a pay increase, but said that “if corporations aren’t going to have a conscience enough to take care of these workers,” then the responsibility falls to the federal government. “If we have to do another stimulus and aid package for essential workers, that’s what we have to do at this time,” said McCain.

While she admitted that she’s “normally the last person on planet Earth that wants the government to give any kind of financial handout to anyone,” the pandemic has created an environment where that becomes necessary. “Everyone from truck drivers to janitorial workers to anybody anywhere who is out still working in this kind of environment should 100% be given hazard pay,” said McCain.

What’s notable about Meghan’s stance, besides a shockingly un-capitalistic concern for the working class, is that it puts her at direct odds with White Power Pinocchio Doll Ben Shapiro, who is often Meghan’s favorite leprechaun source for right wing horseshit. He’s practically up there with her husband’s dumbass website.

Of course, Meghan’s surprisingly correct call to better compensate essential workers had to include a derogatory aside about “handouts” because, make no mistake, when this whole nightmare is over, you better believe she’ll be right back to stroking the free market like slavish devotion to wealth didn’t bring us Trump and this whole mess in the first place. We can’t go learning lessons that might lead to higher taxes and/or lower profits just because we could see more deaths than all of World War II. Let’s not overreact!
