The 2016 New York presidential primary highlights yet again the reckless incompetence, if not outright corruption, of the nomination process in favor of corporate establishment candidates. BUT it actually goes wayyyy deeper than that. Lee Camp explains this and more on Redacted Tonight.

An incredible moving company in California helps victims of domestic violence by moving their belongings at no charge. After starting the company with his brother 18 years ago, owner Aaron Steed was at first surprised by the calls: "I'd periodically get calls from someone — usually a woman — fleeing an abusive relationship. There were a lot of intense moments and crying... I remember the conversations pretty vividly and feeling a tremendous amount of panic and sadness. Handling those phone calls made it very real very quick. As the jobs went on, we realized we were potentially saving lives." After recognizing the scale of the need and unwilling to take money from people in such distress, the brothers decided to make free moving services for people fleeing violent situations a company policy.

The company, Meathead Movers, primarily employs student athletes and works with local domestic violence shelters to ensure that all movers are trained to handle the tense situations they may encounter during a move. One mover, AJ Clarey, described helping a woman move from the same San Luis Obispo County town where he grew up: "That hit home for me. The shelter she was working with contacted us and we discreetly set up the move. When we showed up, she had everything packed. We moved her items from one side of the county across to the other. When we finished, she was literally in tears. Without our help she wouldn't have been able to pay to get her stuff moved. We got her into a safe place with her children."

Such experiences, Steed believes, are important for his young employees and their understanding of domestic violence. "As I get older, I can't help but really value and appreciate more and more the tone this sets for my employees who are involved in actually moving these victims," he reflects. "I can't help but think and hope that it changes their perception of themselves and their ability to have a major impact to do something that can really help someone in need."

As for the survivors themselves, Meathead Movers' rapid and discreet service has been invaluable. "They're wonderful, sensitive, caring and enthusiastic," says Kathleen Buczko, executive director of Good Shepherd Shelter, a refuge for homeless women and children in Los Angeles. "They help turn something that had been associated with something that was so incredibly traumatic into a celebration of moving to their new homes and to a new life."

For those who would like to help, the company asks supporters to donate to domestic violence shelters in their own communities -- you can find listings for US shelters (https://www.domesticshelters.org/) and for shelters around the world (http://www.hotpeachpages.net/). They also encourage other business owners to get involved in helping end domestic violence at http://www.meatheadmovers.com/pledge/

Raising the minimum wage to $15/hour is a huge shot in the arm for Angelenos living in poverty.
05/19/2015

Raising the minimum wage to $15/hour is a huge shot in the arm for Angelenos living in poverty.

We did it, Los Angeles! #RaisetheWageLA has passed City Council

"Today, help is on the way for the one million Angelenos who live in poverty. I started this campaign to raise the minimum wage to create broader economic prosperity in our city and because the minimum wage should not be a poverty wage in Los Angeles. I want to thank the City Council, especially Council President Wesson, Councilmembers Bonin, Cedillo, Krekorian, Martinez and Price, for joining me in building a stronger city and I look forward to signing this legislation." - Mayor Eric Garcetti
