  • What's going to happen to trades with workers currently making $15 -$18 an hour? How will they handle this when minimum wage is set at the same pay?

    they will expect a raise - wouldn't you?


    this is the problem - you raise the bottom and for things to work every level above the bottom must get a proportionate raise. if you dont move others up you are going to have very unhappy workers that wonder why they should work harder if the guy that just got hired is getting the same

  • The McDonalds near us uses these.. They have 6 running. Even during peak busy time there is usually only 1 actual person taking orders. So that was 3 jobs gone right there. So 6 machines took over the job of 3 people.


    This is a never, ever when for the american people. People who are "living" off of food service wages used to be teenagers trying to make a buck until college.


    OK, since I ranted a little let me give a little background:

    My first job out of college was (1985) $14000/yr. Not much so I took a second job at Noble Roman's and a third at Zales Jewelers to make up the difference I needed.

    I worked hard and found a different first job making $26000/yr after about a year. So I did not need both second jobs. Get the picture.


    OK, OK. now start the oh the poor people who cannot (many choose not) work so many hours, well I did it and most can. My story is not unique I am no great person, but I worked hard and scraped for what I had to get better in life. I have been very blessed, very!!!!!, but I earned a lot of that blessing.

  • I refuse to use the self serve tellers. I make it a point to let the workers know when they try to get you to use them that they are killing their jobs. The saddest thing is the people that seem to use them don't work and are on government assistance.

    I can definitely relate SlingRider (Jim) when I purchased our farm a few yrs ago, the bank laughed at me wanting to buy land. They said I needed 50% cash down, I worked my regular job 10hr days Monday to Thursday and 8 on Friday then headed to another job Friday night 6pm -6 am then Saturday morning another job for 7-3 and back in for another 6-6 followed by Sunday 7-3 did this for a yr and paid cash for my farm and told the bank to FU on needing 50%. You get out what you put into life, work hard -play hard and enjoy

  • Tlaib calls for $20-an-hour minimum wage: 'I can't allow people to be living off tips'

    DAMN !!! If the Dems go much higher I may flip a few burgers myself :00008172::00008172:

    That's more than a starting teacher, cop, firefighter makes, and not too far off what I was hired at when I took my current job at the University... except that I had to have a PhD and 10+ years experience even to apply.


    "Minimum" my ass!

    The smarter you get, the funnier I am.

    Hell ! I retired in 2005 at $30 an hour and refused to work overtime.

  • I am sure with you FunCycle - the local Home Depot here has not had cashiers in quite a while - that’s why I shop at Lowes 2 blocks away. Damn grocery stores are doing every thing they can to push you to self checkout by having less and less cashiers. This combined with internet sales crushing brick and mortar buildings in sales - just exactly what do these “social justice warriors” think is going to happen when “old school capitalists” start to push back after a huge mandated wage increase?? Another liberal “feel good” idea for votes that will absolutely do more harm than good in the long run !!

    I might not be right but I can sure sound like it

    Yea, this is the new one that just opened in Charleston. The Depot near me is an older store and I have had many conversations with the employees about this. I have done the same thing in Walmart with a full buggy because there were not enough registers open for the people trying to check out. I would think that if everyone just filled a buggy up every time they walked in the door and then left it at the front register and walked out. You Reckon it would make a difference


  • This is disgusting - the amount of restraint these police officers show is bordering on amazing while making an arrest in NYC. The abuse that LEO is subjected is nothing short of a travesty. Imma say a prayer for the LEO’s I know tonite as everyone else should say a little prayer for rest also. I still respect officers even if I think they are wrong. They are doing a tough job for little pay that I would not even consider doing. Been my experience if you give them respect they will give you double the respect back. REAPECT OUR BOYS IN BLUE !!!

    How can anyone look at this and not feel disgusted! I have no words. I took my parents out to dinner last week. My Mom is 81, she said that along the years everyone says that the next/current generation is ruining the country but this time it's real. What can I say, Mom is right.

    America needs to look at this. Tough job is understated! How can these officers get up tomorrow and face this? Thank you officers!

  • Isn’t it amazing how or parents could see things coming. My dad passed 17 years ago - and predicted some of the very same things that are happening today. Sadly - he said - and I quote “I was proud of you when you became a lawyer but y’all are gonna fuck this country up beyond repair”. The law and enforcement thereof, has deteriorated and is steadily being chipped away with elected officials openly defying federal law with no repercussions . We are very close to the point of no return IMO. 2020 I believe will truly decide if we want to continue this democracy or convert to the United States Socialist Republic. Funny - seems like USSR is taken already - we will see.

    They will continue to earn their wage; and the middle class will be eliminated. upper class vs minimum wage earners... it supports the democratic socialists agenda of creating 2 classes - "Them and Us"

  • Interesting Read On Middle Class



    The largest percentage of wage earners defines the Middle Class...


    If you even the playing field for everyone... and we become the 2 class society the dems so desperately want; then society eventually becomes dependant upon the government in unspecified / unforeseeable terms for education, financial aid and healthcare..... they ultimately gain a much more substantial means of control over the choices and freedoms of the people.



    Now I remember why I quit posting on this thread... I have enough to be frustrated about without being reminded how F'd up the legislation and elected officials are.
