What ever happened to the right to hire and fire? Gone.
A 64-year-old live-in nanny refuses to leave. The family that hired her cannot get her evicted. The police say it’s a civil matter. “You’re on your own!”
She threatens to sue. On what grounds? Age discrimination.
She eats for free. She has a place to lay her head at night. She sets work conditions.
Private property in America has been under assault for a long time. Voters don’t care. But this case at least reminds us about what has been done to us by the federal government.
We live in the land of the safe and the home of the litigious.
“A man’s castle is his home!” But castles are subject to federal regulation.
The nanny has turned America’s homes into roach motels. “Nannies go in. They don’t come out.”
“But this is America!” It sure is.
