“I hear you on the need for a better effort towards early childhood education. Other than that I disagree. CPS is o.k. with 32 students per classroom,most Teachers would say that is too many. We get out of our Public schools what we put into them. CPS funds the schools that they choose to very well, while the average neighborhood school is on it's own.”

“1.7 billion in surplus TIF money, yet the city is so broke it had to close 50 schools. That is B.S.”

WisdomSeed on Dec 8, 2013 at 10:45:58

“I don't think they closed schools because of funding so much as they were both underutilized and ineffective. They should be making more of an effort towards early childhood education in the public arena, which would have been a much better utilization of those buildings. As it is, early education has proven to have significant impact on the ills of poverty and should be more adequately implemented across the city.”

“The heirs of the Walmart fortune never "Put in the time". They have likely never worked a day in their life. There is only so much you can charge for junk food. Any pay increase would come at the expense of Corporate profits or shareholders.”

“I remember when Daley made the argument that Walmarts were all over the suburbs, so let's have them in Chicago minus the Big Box ordinance. The next thing we knew, walmrts were popping up all over with the benefit of Tax Increment Finance dollars. What is to keep these legit MJ growers from setting up shop in Cicero, Evergreen Park, or Evanston? I have heard zero outcry from the citizens of Chicago against medical MJ growers, so why is Burke and Rahm Job making it an issue?”

“My citation shows that the average age of a minimum wage worker is 35. This time it is lightbreeze who is the loser.”

lightbreeze on Dec 4, 2013 at 07:13:12

“You still haven't learned to read, have you?

Your citation:

"The average age of affected workers is 35 years old"

"Affected workers" are not just minimum wage workers in your citation.

"Affected workers" includes "workers earning just above the new minimum wage (who would likely also see a small pay increase as employers move to preserve internal wage ladders)."

Not to mention, regardless if you fail to understand a mistake you've made twice now, even if you were correct (and you most definitely are not) your citation can't be correct when the governments' own statistics refute it.

It's mathematically impossible for the average age of a minimum wage worker to be 35 when workers UNDER age 25 make up at least half of those paid the federal minimum wage or less.

47th loses at basic reading and math.”
