Delta MEC, a unit of the Air Line Pilots Association, said the agreement - which still needs approval from Delta's nearly 13,000 pilots - will cut monthly minimum guaranteed hours by 5%. In September, Delta reached a tentative agreement with the negotiating committee of its pilots' union to reduce the number of furloughs by 220, bringing the new total number of job reductions to 1,721. The airline industry has been hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak as travel has been restricted amid the pandemic, with Delta and other airlines focusing on cutting costs, boosting liquidity and restoring customer confidence.
During his interview with Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) just a few days before she could become the first woman of color—or woman, period, for that matter—to be elected vice president of the United States, Trevor Noah asked her a simple question about her name that elicited a deeply thoughtful response. “Your name,” the Daily Show host began as his guest began to crack a smile. “Why does it seem like it becomes harder to pronounce your name the more conservative a person is? Because I’ve noticed that there are some people you’re worked with in the Senate who don’t seem to know your name.” Noting that “any immigrant” or “child of immigrants” has a similar story, Noah asked, “How does this make you feel when you see people fighting about your name?” As she often does in interviews, Harris was laughing genially during the question, but then she turned more serious than usual as she began to answer. “Well, that’s an interesting way to ask the question,” the senator replied. “Because when I see the people who have had the experience of having been given a name from their family, which is one of the greatest gifts that a family can give you—it’s the first gift that a child, when they enter the earth, receives from their family.”“It is usually informed by tradition and love and the hope and aspiration the family has for that child,” she continued. “It is something precious and sacred. And it is a part of their identity. And when I see people fighting for the right for that to be respected and treated in a dignified way, I applaud and salute that.” Then Harris turned to the people on the other side of that fight, which as Noah alluded to include her Senate colleagues like Republican David Perdue of Georgia who was widely criticized earlier this month for mocking her name during a Trump rally. Similarly, Tucker Carlson who has spent months purposefully mangling “Kamala” on his Fox News. To those men and anyone else who wants to “play childish games” she said the idea that the “highest elected leaders should conduct themselves like they did when they were children on the playground” ultimately “speaks poorly of their appreciation for the responsibility and the role that they have.” “And I think it’s a reflection of their values and maturity,” Harris concluded.

7-Eleven repays $173m to workers after some franchisees falsified records in underpayments scandal. Stores have also improved payroll systems after case used in campaign that led to tougher penalties for ‘wage theft’
Amy McGrath, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, said Thursday that she is confident voters want to bring about change as they head to the polls this week, despite facing long odds against Sen. Mitch McConnell. McConnell, the Senate majority leader and a 36-year veteran of the Senate, wields significant power over the Congress and frequently touts that he is the only senior leader in Congress not from New York or California. McGrath told ABC News' Lindsey Davis Thursday that she believes voters can tell that McConnell is too entrenched in Washington politics to get things done for Kentucky.
With just five days to go until the 2020 presidential election, Seth Meyers held nothing back in his assessment of President Donald Trump’s closing message Thursday night.“Now a lot can still happen before the election, and polls can be wrong—as we’ve learned before,” the Late Night host said. But as of now, Joe Biden is maintaining his massive lead over Trump in the national and swing state polls. “The Trump campaign knows they can’t campaign against Joe Biden,” he added, “so they’ve decided instead to campaign against reality.”In response to Dr. Anthony Fauci calling the Trump administration’s inaction on the coronavirus an “untenable situation,” Meyers said, “It’s only an untenable situation if you’re a sane person capable of empathy and compassion and not, you know, a sociopath who dances at his rallies during a deadly pandemic like a hungover Little League umpire calling strike three.”“Trump keeps showing a flagrant disregard for human life by holding giant superspreader rallies in hot spots and by pretending that the pandemic is over and that the virus just isn’t that deadly,” Meyers said, playing footage of the president boasting about how “immune” he is and threatening to kiss all the men in the crowd.Then, after showing viewers another bizarre rant in which Trump imagined how people in California must be somehow eating through their masks, Meyers said, “He sounds like a doctor giving a TED Talk after a massive head wound.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
