The View co-host, Whoopi Goldberg seems VERY confused! While the average American median household income is just over $50,000a year, Whoopi decided to resort to her racist tactics and disparage slave labor by pretending that SHE worked under such conditions as slaves of over 150 years ago. Let’s be clear… slaves were considered property, they were NOT employees. They were provided food, clothing and shelter by their owners but did NOT receive wages and were not free to ‘walk off the job’. Whoopi’s conditions are a FAR STRETCH from that of a slaves conditions.
Whoopi’s unprofessional tantrum erupted after finding out from ABC executives that they were considering renewing her contract at a lesser amount of only $2 MILLION a year instead of $5 MILLION a year. While that seems like a HUGE drop it stands to reason that The View was the least-watched daytime series on broadcast television last year in the coveted women ages 18-49 demo. Even all the soap operas and game shows had higher ratings than ultra-liberal The View. But being a FAILING show wasn’t a good enough reason for people’s salaries to be cut. I guess Whoopi thinks she deserves to go on ABC welfare and they should keep paying her money that her own show isn’t making. Basic economics… you do a good job or make your show popular you get paid a certain amount, if you do a poor job or are unpopular you get paid a lesser amount.
Instead of understanding basic economics Whoopi decided being paid MILLIONS more per year than about every American is tantamount to working in the cotton fields of the South of course forgetting to mention that during that time her Democratic Party was still fighting to maintain and strengthen slavery. Her tantrum included Whoopi marching up and down the halls declaring,
“I’s a work for ABC who is my master. I’s a slave to ABC. It’s 12 Years a Whoopi at ABC.”
“I’s just a n****r following orders around here, master!”
Adding to the drama over contract negotiations, Whoopi has also clashed with the View’s new consulting producer Candi Carter, gave Whoopi an additional 30 minutes work (starting at 8:30 Hot Topics section) to earn her multi-million dollar salary.
Whoopi continued in her rant about the ‘slave-master-like’ demands that would require her to come in early saying,
“I’m contractually obligated to be here at 9 a.m. and you won’t see me a minute earlier.”
Well duh lady…. your contract is changing.
I want to ask American’s… have you had to take a pay cut since Obama has been President? Have you had to work longer hours? Well I can say the affirmative to both. I would welcome the hardship of making $2 MILLION a year but more than that I welcome getting paid the amount of money agreed to in a contract and when that contract ends I look for another contract I find more agreeable.
If I work for a company or project that is a losing company or project… I just go look for another winner and leave the loser behind. Seems to me that The View has been a losing show for over a decade and for some reason it’s still on the air, probably losing money just to provide the propaganda the left so much loves.
I guess even ABC has welfare recipients and Whoopi is just one of the untalented recipients they support.
