  3. Minimum wage IS for minimum skills! 1st I'll say I absolutely agree that servers/bartenders wages should be increased to the same minimum wage as everyone else, plus their tips - they work their a*ses off every day - I used to be one & yes, some days the tips are great, but other days they are terrible. 2nd, I have been the single mother of 3 most of my childrens' lives. Minimum wage wasn't cutting it, so what did I do? I got an Associate Degree, then got a CAREER that paid me HIGHER THAN MINIMUM WAGE, plus bonuses, commissions, & benefits because when your paycheck isn't cutting it, t

  4. Not every employee wants a living wage. Many only want to work part time. There should be no minimum wage. If employees do not like what I pay then they should look for a different job

  5. This is NOT why. I personally know this. Its due to the free money handed out and ALL the EXTRA pay in unemployment and other incentives. But keep spinning that tired old horse. Dems love free stuff.

  6. Wow, no Trump did this or that because there is no way to blame trump for any of this crap now. The blame falls directly on the Democrats and the brain dead voters that vote for them.

  7. I've been hearing this slogan a lot on social media. Obviously, one side is using this as their only defense. I wonder, what is "a living wage"? I know people who cannot live off anything less than $150k/year and I know some who live comfortably off of $28k/yr. Also, this slogan is was apparently drummed up by someone who has never owned a business. A business is not created to make it's employees rich. A business is created to make money for it's own survival, while making it's creator/owner money.

    Did he use excessive force that killed him? Yes. And he’s guilty for it. As he should be. Should Floyd; a nine time felon who held a white pregnant woman at gun point, be immortalized? Absolutely not. I don’t get that. Why would you paint murals of him and act as though he was a hero. He was a drug abuser thief who terrorized a woman. And then some.

  10. and what is a livable wage? Certain jobs are entry level jobs and if you want better pay then you educate yourself and learn a skill worthy of more money. So if they do increase peoples pay to let's say $15 what happens to those that are making $15 now or even $20. You just basically decreased their livable wage because the costs of goods will increase. Also why would anyone making $15 now using a skill stay where they are at when they can just flip burgers and get the same pay without the harder work. Every time the minimum wage is increased so do the costs of everything e

  13. Remember what emperor wolf said when asked about employee's refusing to come back to work because they were making more on unemployment.... maybe the employer's need to pay more. Really nice to say about a industry that you extremely penalized for almost a year and bankrupted a lot of, now when they are finally getting back on their feet you make a comment like that! And he was a supposed businessman? IF he truly was then he would of never made a comment like that. IMO once again it is the nazi machine we know as the DNC at work and have all their members following a playbook.

  14. God Bless you. You did it the right way. SSD was for people like you worked your butt off. But, the problem is what I have been saying here for years, the illegals get SSI. That is what is draining Social security. Social security was for people who had disabilities and to suppliment Seniors retirement. Not Illegals, and teenage pregnancies.

  15. Another problem government faces is there is no one size fits all minimum wage. Pittsburgh's cost of living is much higher than here in Du Bois as a example, so what area should you base minimum wage on? As was stated early in thread, minimum wage is for minimum skilled positions. And another item people need to get through their head is if your current employer is not paying you enough then look for another job that pays what you want to make. Employment is no different than paying something, it is between two parties agreeing on how much one party is willing to pay to the other party for ser

  16. Everyone is entitled to better themselves! Minimum wage is to find out if you're willing to work, show up on time, do what's expected.....not a career job. You start here to show you're employable. Crawl before you walk!

  18. We get it. We know what the law says. We are saying it should be murder as we believe there was intent the moment she chose to get in her vehicle stoned. That’s intent in my book. The law needs changed to reflect that. This wasn’t an “accident”. She knowingly got stoned and knowingly got in her car and went the wrong way. There’s the intent. The death penalty should apply.

  20. I wasn't a fan of Obama, but he was a good speaker and he took the high road which was very Presidential and what any President should do. I wouldn't compare Biden to Trump, though. Biden is not a good speaker most of the time. He clearly has some health issues. That is not his fault. I'm not his fan, either, but I do think he is doing well with trying to conquer the pandemic. I don't give him a good rating as far as the border and I think he hands way too much money out. 'Nuff said on that. I'm sure you don't agree. It's OK. Trump, to me, was a good speaker. Although, he

  23. And the illegal invaders keep coming by the thousands thanks to the voted for Liberal government. If your a taxpaying legal citizen of this country you MUST follow the laws of this country. If not, the law enforcement of this country will penalize you. Welcome to Liberal America where rules are broken or enforced according who you are.

  24. US Bishops are now discussing not serving Pro abortion catholics. 2 Bishops were on the morning news and both say it is a sin to support Abortion and take communion. So I guess Pelosi and Biden and friends are committing a mortal sin supporting abortion. No surprise.

    First, this post should be in the dictionary beside the word "moronic". Second. What makes YOU think YOU will see the fines? They don't post a big notice on the houses saying "YOU ARE FINED". They typically mail them to those they are going to fine. Third. You have zero idea the amount of time it takes ONE zoning officer to drive every residential street in the city, compile a list of non-compliant addresses, and then mail the fines to those that will get them. 6 days is a laughable timeline and unrealistic. Why don't YOU volunteer your time and help them out and compile a list

  30. Like before I have asked what will happen to the wages of skilled, semi-skilled labor under this increase? No one wants to address this. If I currently make (whatever amount above minimum) will I see an increase in my wages or will my wages stay the same? A paramedic makes less than or equal to $15/hr. so what about them? Do their wages increase equally?

  33. Thank you. Someone is too busy doing google searches on law to feel like he's smart to understand what we are saying. It is very sad that someone's life has such little value to our court system. Which, like I said before, is the problem. People know they can get away with murder. Sickening. DUI laws are definitely not strict enough.

  38. Then he shouldn’t be president. Simple as that. Trump was only a couple years younger. He didn’t stutter or lose his thoughts every time he spoke. Neither did Reagan. Biden is mentally incompetent to lead the Free world. The president needs to be.....has to be mentally sharp. Biden’s mind is slipping bad. Stuttering is one thing. But losing your thoughts nearly every time you speak is another. Biden does both.

  41. The more I think about this the more ridiculous it becomes. Instead of trying for a false equality in education we have to learn to value individual talents and steer kids to reinforce their natural abilities. Some kids can write, some kids are artistic, some kids are good at math and some kids can work with their hands. Why try to force them to all be equal? They aren't but their talents are equally valuable.

We should not be bringing in other people to take care of, especially when many of our own schools and businesses are still closed due to this pandemic. Our borders should not be open until everything else here is open to citizens. We should not be expected to fix all of the problems of the world at the expense of our country. There are many reasons to be against this and they do not make someone unchristian. The debt we are getting further into daily is just mind boggling to me. I fear f

    It turns out that kneeling for the national anthem, hating on public safety officers, campaigning for Democrats and getting in bed with Chinese communists really aren’t the best marketing strategies for pro sports. Refusing to play ball, as the Minnesota Twins did three days ago because of the death of Daunte Wright, doesn't endear baseball to Republican fans already angry over the Georgia debacle. Baseball can’t even think about using the old “well there’s a pandemic going on” excuse. Republicans aren’t the whole story here either. All four major sports

  49. Most who are causing trouble under the name, BLM, has no idea what they are B1tching about. Show me a demonstration by BLM that does not involved looting and destroying other people's lively hood and I will start paying attention to their B1TCH. Until then, I will continue to see them as they really are. Ignorant, non productive people who thinks the world owes them everything because they were born black in color. I was born white, in color. Will they accept me as a fellow human in their neighborhood?
