SeaTac $15 Minimum Wage Squeaking By In Early Returns, But Vote Count Could Last Days

SeaTac $15 Minimum Wage Squeaking By In Early Returns, But Vote Count Could Last Days

“Food costs the same, whether at a beach, a mall, or any other location. Cost of materials is always more expensive than labor in a modern fast food operation.

Oh, and outside of airports, beachfront property is as expensive as it gets.”

“What if the food place was in the desert?”

“Actually, the 2 largest costs for fast food restaurant in an airport, would be rent and food.

in an airport, lease costs are usually 10X higher than most mall locations, and often figured as a percentage of gross sales, with a guaranteed minimum.

Do the math. A fast food joint serving 150 meals an hour would be grossing about $1000 an hour. 10 minimum wage workers making $7.25/hr and no benefits, would cost $72.50/hr + FICA, call it about $90/hr. that means that the labor cost of a 6.59 meal is about $1 (9% of $6.59). I seriously doubt that the ingredients + paper products for said meal costs less than $1.50”

“It's not that the parties are written into the Constitution. It's that the winner takes all nature of elections here guarantees that smaller parties can't survive. In other countries, people vote for parties, not individual representatives, so that getting 10% of the vote gets them 10% of the legislative votes, often enough that they can join the ruling coalition.”

“This is certainly part of the reason republicans and democrats control all politics but let;s not discount the ability of the two major parties to completely eliminate the competition through rule making and the buying of influence. Also, while we are voting for candidates let's be clear, they come from two parties and smaller parties never get the chance to grow in our censored society. Again, good point.”

“Christie has too many personal flaws, including a vicious temper. He's the only prominent republican I can think of who's not an obvious authoritarian follower, and susceptible to the right wing meme of the month. I agree with you, but I think that they are headed into the same oblivion as the Whigs, unless something changes.”

“Unfortunately, the 2 party system is not going away. The Constitution is right up there with the Magna Carta for greatness, but it practically guarantees a 2 party system, and thus it requires the leaders of each party to sometimes knuckle under for the good of the country. That isn't happening now, or for the next few years until the present breed of dinosaurs is replaced.”

“I believe it is not going away any time soon but I doubt your connection to the constitution. There are no mentions of political parties in the document and many of the founders of this country actively spoke against them.”

“Good luck with that. What's we'd get is an embarassing (for the Republicans) spectacle in which the House members managing the prosecution would reveal what planet they live on (not this one) before they fail to even get a simple majority (maybe not even one vote) for conviction, and make Republicanism so disreputable that no one would admit to being a member.”

“Absolutely false that black commit 90% of the crimes in the US, they commit less than 30% of them. Don't take my word for it, take the FBIs word for it.
