Re: Wendy's and minimum wage

Re: ACA: no such thing as "settled law"

I believe we are talking about an estimated $150 million/10 years. I don't see how congress can micromanage items like that. Isn't $1.5 million/year something live 1/100,000,000 of the budget? No wonder our congress doesn't work. And aren't they in [more]

Re: UC Berkeley greets $15 min wage with job cut

Another area that will be hard hit is caregivers. Currently caregivers earn close to minimum wage - $7.25/hr or maybe $8/hr and a $15/hr minimum wage would more than double or nearly double the cost to those being cared for.
