America's Terrible Fast Food Pay Has Gone Global, And Workers Are Fighting Back

America's Terrible Fast Food Pay Has Gone Global, And Workers Are Fighting Back

Commented May 18, 2014 at 20:22:07 in Business

“Repubicans have the solution for minimum wages. First, minimum wage is bad for the economy and bad for jobs or emeployment. there fore it would be better to NUT the minimum wage in half and then hire one additional person at the lower minmum wage. That will be good for busniess with more profits and productivity and good for workers by creating more jobs in stead of reducing jobs. Twice as many minimum jobs would be created and twice as many people would be working.Win! Win! Good economics. The next best thing is to do what former US House Speaker Newt Gingrich said to solve the jobs and unemployment problems is to"TAKE A BATH AND GET A JOB". It implies that worker do NOT want jobs, are not only lazy, but they are dirty and nasty! More good Republican economics!”

“I tried to contact Oprah concerning Sexual Predators of Children and regarding her call to fans to change State Laws . The cry was Enough!~ No more Children! I organized a non-profit Mothers Against Sexual Predators of Children (MASPC) in Colorado. I wrote letters to Oprah for her support of this organization and changing Colorado State laws to provide a minimun mandatory Life sentence with out possibility of parole for the kidnap, sexual assault/rage or murder of a child. No response to date. Oprah was the inspiration for this effort and development of this organization. She had even offered rewards for the location of missing Registered Sex Offenders amounting to $100,000. I think that three rewards were actually paid. This organization is currently registered as a lobbyist in the Colorado State Legislature.”

“The first extention by Pres Obama was the first mistake. This gave the Republicans ammunition to turn against Obama Care aka Romney Care,aka Patien Protection Affordable Care Act. The Republicans started yelling UnFAIR to American people. Breaks to Big Busness! An extention of Individual Mandate woud be the second mistake. Actually Pres Obama should cancel the first extention and admit it was a mistake. PPACA is the Law of the land and Pres Obam should never change it. Changes , hopefully improvements , must go thru Congress to change the ACA Law!
Pres Obama needs to clean house and get some new advisors or else start listening to them! He must have a bunch of YES men and women for advisors! That shows lack of ability as a manager or CEO. The best leaders have good men (women) around them! They need honest input and different opinions.”

Then we have that little country, France, that kicked US Toops out of the country after we liberated France in WWII. France closed all US Bases too. So much for Communist influence!

“Trial about Gun Control and allegeded racism!
This was just another attack on concealed carry permits and self defense. Any white guy who has a concealed carry permit for a hand gun and shoots a black person will probably be arrested and charged with murder! They should keep a good lawyers telephone number with their concealed carry card! This verdict will not help Illinois Citizens trying to get State Convealed Carry permits made legal. They want to ban all hand guns so that law abiding citizens of Illinois can NOT defend themselves. Big disappointment for The President and the Democrats! Congress and the President would rather attack law abiding US Citzens then tackle the issue of Mental Illness! Expanded background checks only included "adjudicated cases" or "court cases" of mental illness! Probably only 1 percent. The other 99 per cent of adults and juviniles who have been treated for Mental Illness in the past or are presently being treated ,but who have not been to court, can buy all of the guns that they can afford! . The President and Democrats lied to SandHook and Aurora theater victims and families! Gun control laws have always been a "knee jerk " reaction to crime! That is why there are over 10,000 gun control laws and most are not even enforced! A convicted FELON who has illegal weapons is seldom, if ever, charged or prosecuted for the gun crime! It is estimated that there are about 250,000 convicted felons with illegal guns!”

“Set your profile to friends only can view your info. Then, remove any and all apps, games, etc from your account as having these installed can give those apps permission to have and share your personal info. The biggest problem you will have in stopping those kinds of emails is that they already have your information. If it's the same couple addresses mailing you, just have them blocked.

Most people don't realize that when you install any app, you're actually allowing them access to just about any and all information associated with your profile. It's the reason why you have to "allow" that app to be installed and used first. Easy rule is, if it asks permission first to install then deny it. Period.”

“This country is to violent and to soft on crime. Back in the 1950's sociologists taught that "heridity and environment determine all human behavior". That gave criminals the excuse that it was not their fault. They are not responsible for their behavior or their actions. Blame their parents or their neighbors, etc..They do not recognize the existence of "free will" or "choice". Our politicains picked up the same belief. This is also due to lack of religion in this country too. There can be no sin if it is some one else's fault. "The devil made me do it" , etc. Liberal views of crimes and punishment have ruined this country day by day!”

“What a nonsensical rant.. If you could even spell "heredity" successfully, I might be inclined to believe that you possess enough intelligence to put forth a cogent argument, but alas, you cannot. Per capita, violent crime has actually decreased in the United States since the 1970's; what has increased is the availability of information with the advent of the internet and social media. I suggest you do a little research on the "liberal views of crime and punishment" that have supposedly corrupted our great Christian nation before you spew more of your idiocies.”
