June 7, 2013

Actress and singer Bette Midler’s pet project, banning all plastic grocery bags in California, came to a screeching stop after a last-minute plea by a LA lawmaker.

A star-studded lobbying effort crashed and burned after state Sen. Kevin de Leon, stood up and told fellow lawmakers that the ban could put up to 500 immigrant women out of work in his district.article 2337155 1A3052F1000005DC 636 634x532 Bette Midler PLASTIC BAG BAN MELTS After Last Min Appeal 500 Women Lose JobsMiss Divine didn’t take the news so devine, throwing a total hissy fit after lawmakers failed to pass the bag ban,

‘I’ve been bombarded by phone calls by folks who live in Malibu and stars who live in Hollywood,’ de Leon told the Times. But his constituents, he said – along with their jobs in plastics factories – had to come first.

 
It’s kind of a hard call to make when the ban means folks will be losing their jobs.. Especially a bunch of our sisters.. But let’s face it, nothing is going to change until people stop using the bags and start taking your own bags like I’ve been doing lately.

What do you guys think?
