“How did the patron know the waitress is gay? If the patron objected to her lifestyle enough not to tip, why didn't they request to be seated elsewhere? Weren't they afraid to drink from a glass the waitress touched; eat from a plate she held?”

“It seems that, of the three, Miss Knight had the weakest support system upon leaving the house from hell. This would make her the most vulnerable to the media's attempts to exploit her experience. Dr. Phil is no longer in the practice of healing, he's out for the ratings. It feels like, this time, he's crossed the line. Would a doctor recommend a televised interview as part of the healing process? I hope it is a cathartic experience for Miss Knight and that this interview doesn't blow her opportunity to write and sell the book which would allow her the resources to truly heal and recover.”

“I thought he lived in Mississippi but driving through, no, I wouldn't expect him to change his route. I am not blaming the victim. Every state in this country has its own flavor and culture. The bible-belt is notorious for its poor treatment of individuals of color and whose religious beliefs do not fall inline with their own.  The judge did not paint with a broad stroke - he made an insensitive crass comment regarding the man's religious attire. Would he say something similar to a Jewish man wearing a yamaka? Probably. The judge is a good ole boy who was voted in by people who think these type of comments are acceptable. As for crime areas, absolutely, stay out of them if you have a choice. If you do go in don't drive a new car without expecting your tires to be stolen. And when they are, go ahead and file a police report but don't wait around for their safe return.”

“Why is he in Mississippi? I understand we have a right to live anywhere but I'm white with blue eyes and I wouldn't live in Mississippi...or Alabama. There are 50 states, why did he and his family choose this one? If this is the response of a judge, I cannot imagine the kind of ignorance he and his family must face on a daily basis from Mississippi's less educated citizens. I und wish the ACLU the best as they take this on but in the mean time, I think a relocation fund would be more helpful.”

Alhumdolillah on Sep 29, 2013 at 07:49:18

“He is a truck driver. He was driving through when he was pulled over. Should he have chosen a different route? You just painted the Mississippians with the same broad brush as the judge did. Are you suggesting that instead of fighting crime, we should avoid a high crime area? It is true that there are fifty states. But it is still one country ruled by one Constitution as law of the land.”

“I believe and applaud the original sentiment and determination of a young girl wanting to help and vowing to set up a lemonade stand. After that, Dad is the CEO of the company. HALF OF THE PROFIT goes to charity...not only is he exploiting his child's spirit but he's using child slavery to encourage well meaning people to make what they believe to be a donation to stop this horrid practice. Pay what they want - I'll give $20 to stop child slavery. Oh, wait, on top of Dad's salary, which is part of the cost, he's pocketed half of the profit on that $20 lemonade. (I know I sound cynical but this is totally ironic and just wrong.)”

“Hello: Thank you for taking the time to post--and for caring so much. I can feel it in your words. And I might have the same initial reaction as you. First, this has been Vivienne's idea from the beginning. We did not expect, or necessarily always love, the idea of setting up a lemonade stand for 365 days rain or shine. It was honestly harder than it sounds. That said, we did, because we believe in Vivienne. We love her and we wanted to see what would happen if we followed her all the way and didn't just dismiss her dreams. We chose the for-profit Social Purpose designation because it allows us to hire good people, pay them well and hopefully have a much bigger impact on the issue. This video really shaped our thinking on it: http://www.ted.com/talks/dan_pallotta_the_way_we_think_about_charity_is_dead_wrong.html. I understand if you never believe in us. But I hope my response clarifies some things. Thank you. ~Eric (dad)”

“The fast food business model depends on teen and retired part-time workers. It wasnt until the recession when our full-time manufacturing, call center, and technical jobs went overseas that a job at McDonalds was needed for anything more than gas and movie money. If you want a grass-fed burger served by a person earning a living wage dont go to a drive-thru and expect to pay more than a dollar.”

Subway Founder Fred Deluca: Minimum Wage Increase 'Will Cause Franchisees To Raise Prices'

Commented Feb 28, 2013 at 12:51:30 in Business

“Of course the price will go up. That's business. And all of the minimum wage workers who, I'm betting make up a substantial percentage of Subway's customers, will have more money in their pockets to pay the price increase. Increase of $1.75 per hour + 10% employer costs = $1.92. $1.92 divided by the number of sandwiches, chips, drinks an employee can sell in an hour. Let's say, 30 products per hour/per employee - the price of each will go up 6 cents per item. I wish these companies would stop threaten us with their pseudo-economics.”

usmc ok on Feb 28, 2013 at 13:10:59

“I wish you understood economics.

Subway isn't a stand alone entity, they are subject to market forces.

The cost of the minimum wage salary increase is not the only factor. The manager/assistant manager salaries will also need to increase to reflect the appropiate level of responsability. The cost of the ingredients will increase. The overhead will increase. It's a lot more complicated than you are putting it.”

“Depends on the job function. Programmers work great from home. 2 days in office to plan and collaborate and 3 at home to get the work done.Telecommuters don't use as much PTO as in-office workers, don't get sick as often, work longer hours, and have lower salary requirements (transportation and business attire accounts for substantial savings). If Yahoo cant monitor productivity than that factor alone may explain their business issues but I'm guess this is a means of trimming the workforce without layoffs.”

I'd bet this will cost him more patients than it will negatively affect her employment opportunities. He has also publicly dishonored and insulted his wife.”
