4:27 am
summer. >> and then, i send an e-mail and let's set up time to talk. >> her teams work hard but also know what they want. >> i think because we foster a pretty social high-vibe environment here, that is appealing to them. however, it does not mean that there is an option to pay them less or dump more hours on to them they are coming in they are looking for work. but they're -- they are making asking in what they are looking for. they want flexibility. they want to be able to take summer vacations and they know they can get competitive pay so there's been something that's been very apparent >> reporter: at the east coast wings and grills location, teens were key at the height of the pandemic in september, 2020. >> for me, it was not an issue to have 16-17-year-old -- and i believe she had not even turned 18 great -- but to -- to earn what post-pandemic or pre-pandemic would have been a high rate of -- of pay in southeast let's say, at 12, 13, 14, $15 an hour.

4:31 am
of world war ii. but first, the british prime minister boris johnson hangs on by a thread. johnson narrowly surviesked a no-confidence vote from his own party. today's vote was triggered after dozens of his fellow conservative lawmakers submitted letters questioning his leadership here is the moment that a party official announced the result in parliament. >> i can announce that the parliamentary party does have confidence -- [ cheers and applause >> 148 voted against him the prime minister needed a simple majority to remain in office -- 180 votes or more. that means he survived by 32 votes. in other words, 59% of lawmakers say they support johnson 41% say they have no confidence. after the vote, spoke to our sister network sky news in the uk, he described the vote as both convincing and decisive. >> what it means is that -- is
4:32 am
as -- as a government, we can move on and focus on the stuff i think really matters to people. >> well, under current rules in the uk, johnson cannot face another leadership challenge for at least one year. but today's vote does deliver, yet, another significant blow to his authority and wounded reputation the prime minister sparked outrage across the uk for the scandal known as party-gate. investigators found that he and his staff repeatedly hosted boozy parties at number ten towning street while the country was under restrict covid lockdown during that time, the government in the uk ordered people not to socialize at all or visit their d dying loved ones he takes full responsibility for the parties but refused to step down now, a growing number of conservative lawmakers say they feel the prime minister is a liability for the party. a look at tomorrow's front pages in the uk. the i writing "wounded johnson
4:33 am
in peril." and the daily star, "carry on, pinocchio, fibber pm survives to live another day." will fred frobt joins us now wilf, bairs barely gets by. >> barely gets by but the important thing tonight is he did win that vote in confidence in him and as you rightly said, now can't face the same vote for at least another 12 months so certainly, fights to live another day. though, as you correctly imply, when 40% of your own team suggests they have no faith in your leadership, your authority is hit very hard and reminder, shep, when theresa may faced the same type of vote in 2018, she won it with a higher percentage than boris johnson has done tonight. but five or six months later, was ultimately pressured and forced to resign because she had been so wounded from that process.
4:34 am
the slight difference with boris johnson? he is seen as more stubborn, more resolute, dare i even say, more self-interested so the ball for him to resign on his own accord probably higher than for theresa may. >> you know, those who voted with the prime minister, what was their argument for keeping him? >> so the thing we have heard a lot of both today in the run-up to this vote but also in the last couple months is they remind people that two and a half years ago -- relatively recently -- he led the party to a massive majority in the general election and therefore, his own mp should allow him to get on with the job and not fill themselves with these "game of thrones" leadership-type battles just within the niche of the conservative party inflation, slowing economy, and of course the war in ukraine the one thing that is not really mentioned today, but certainly implied and probably helped him gain a few extra votes is there is no clear, obvious successor there is no clear front-runner
4:35 am
so even if people didn't necessarily vote today because they have huge faith in him, they might have done because they didn't know what would come next now, of course, all of those reasons aren't suggesting enduring faith in him personally but were enough to save him tonight. >> live from london, great to see you and thanks here at home, the leader of the far-riproud boys indicted wh the capitol insurrection, along with four other members of that group. the charge seditious conspiracy for their actions on january 6th and before according to prosecutors, the members coordinated their attack in the weeks leading up to that incident discussing strategy, weapons, and training the indictment notes several communications, including one from january the 3rd, during which one member asked "what would they do if one million patriots stormed and took the capitol building shoot into the crowd i think not. and someone responded, "they
4:36 am
would do nothing because they can do nothing." the members indicated today -- or the ones who were indicted today -- had previously been charged with conspiring to obstruct the 2020 election certification. now, they join members of the oath keepers, as the only january-6th defendants to face the sedition charge. it is, by far, the most serious charge leveled in this investigation. it requires prosecutors to prove that they intended to forcefully overthrow the united states' government democrats on the house committee investigating the insurrection at the capitol want americans to see what they have learned. congressman jamie raskin said today, watch the hearings. the hearings will tell a story about what took place that day the first is set for thursday night. according to a new nbc poll, convincing the american public of what they found may be a tall order. as 45% of those surveyed say they hold former-president trump solely or mainly responsible for the attack
4:37 am
that is down from 52% last january. it suggests public opinion has softened over the last year and a half the committeee says there will be new evidence and witness testimony. lawmakers say they will show the attack on the capitol was a well-organized conspiracy. you can watch the prime-time hearing live thursday night beginning 8:00 eastern right after the news here on cnbc. twitter taking heat from all sides, again an investigation in texas. state attorney general ken paxton launching it over the company's reporting on bots and fake accounts. and then, there is the man looking to buy the social-media company. elon musk turning up the pressure over those same issues. the bots he is now threatening to pull the deal if he doesn't get the information that he says he wants. in a letter, his lawyers sending a clear message today to twitter's general council. this is a clear breach of twitter's obligations under the
4:38 am
merger agreement twitter responded saying they have already shared information and will continue to do so twitter's stock was down again today, closing about 40 bucks a share. musk's all-cash deal, priced at 5420 cnbc contributor casey newton now -- founder and editor of platformer casey, is this really about bots or just not worth what he asked for it >> we knew this was coming elon wanted to weasel his way out of this deal for a while now. he has been using this phony pretext of bots but now, his lawyers have a slightly more legally credible way of maybe making it happen. >> exactly now how claiming that twitter has not held up its end of the deal by -- by being transparent about everything >> that is exactly right the deal has certain covenants in it that basically said, hey, if we are going to get this done, we are going to agree that we are going to behave in this
4:39 am
way. and so, his lawyers are saying twitter has refused to disclose some unspecified information about, you know, data that would help them determine how many bots on the platform but in reality, they can just keep asking questions forever and if twitter doesn't answer every single one of them, they will be able to throw their hands up and say, after, twitter is not cooperating, we won't be able to get the deal done. >> it is all a hot mess. what does this do to a struggling twitter >> of course, twitter has every incentive to fight for the deal it got, which looks amazing in retrospect no one on earth thinks twitter is worth it. unfortunately for elon musk, that is the deal he signed so i think it is going to drag out. >> casey newton, you are the best thank you. tourists versus locals it is a tale as old as time really the newest version is happening in montana where people from all over are headed, many inspired

4:44 am
