- Kim is joined by researcher Patti Kurgan to discuss VF/North Face’s decision to not accept an order from gas and oil company Innovex. The hypocrisy of such a decision flies in the face of well-informed people. North Face/VF Corporation puts out “feel-good” statements against “dirty” fossil fuel but have a supply chain that is heavily entrenched in the petrochemical industry. Sporting goods such as skis, ski helmets, jackets, ski pants, fishing rods, etc. all have petrochemicals in them. If VF is really serious about making a statement, then do not use petrochemicals in the composition of VF Corporation products, do not use cell phones and computers in the day to day activities of VF Corporation business and transport VF Products products across land via horse and wagon instead of by plane, trains and trucks.
- Sonia Riggs, President/CEO of the Colorado Restaurant Association, states what we already know—the restaurant industry has been devastated. The fabric of neighborhoods will be changed as restaurants continue to close if the unelected bureaucrats do not put a halt to their restrictions and lockdowns that are based on modeling, not factual data. Patronize local businesses, including your neighborhood restaurant, to help small businesses survive excessive government intervention.
- Jason McBride with Presidential Wealth believes the destruction of small businesses is intentional. Big business and big government have had a unique relationship for some time. Jason explains one way to protect your hard-earned money is to invest in a ROTH account. Contact Jason at 303-694-1600 to discuss your personalized strategy going forward.
- Guest Roger Hays, CEO/President of Premier Employer Services, discusses with Kim major policies that are about to be “layered on” businesses by the government. Fixed minimum increases combined with the pandemic reaction may actually lead to additional lay-offs. Family Medical Leave was passed as a ballot initiative and the creation of an expansive new Colorado state department begins. Unemployment taxes will increase as automatic wage base raises are implemented. The Pay Equity Act takes effect on January 1st.
