POTUS Joe Biden Hit The Ground Running, Busy Doing The People’s Work On Inauguration Day

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Thursday, January 21, 2021

On his Inauguration Day, following taking the Oath of Office, President Biden kept his campaign promise, signed at least 15 Executive Orders and other executive directives, all designed to protect American citizens from abuses of various types, to bring America back into accord with its international neighbors, and to begin strengthening the weaknesses created by the previous failed administration.

The first three Executive Orders were signed on camera from a room adjoining the Oval Office for such purposes.

The outcomes of the cases varied, but those that stood in court brought bad news for the company. In 2002, a federal jury in Oregon found Walmart employees were forced to work off the clock and awarded back pay to 83 workers.

And in a similar case in 2000, Walmart settled a class-action lawsuit against Read the rest of this entry »
