Re: “State board recommends $15-an-hour minimum for fast-food workers

When every fast-food place and every coffee shop is shit down due to a worker's strike, people will realize the value of those jobs.

Re: “State board recommends $15-an-hour minimum for fast-food workers

Look at the flip side of this. This $15 per hour wage is not going to people working 40 hours per week. Many are working just a few hours per day.

And also look at recent NY Attorney General cases against Papa Johns and Dominos. These franchises seem to be doing everything possible to not pay the wages currently due to their hard working employees.

Re: “Theater math

So, the criteria now is that the theater simply won't run a deficit? There is no prediction of profitability? Without profits, the theater will be stagnant. Sounds good doesn't it?

What happened to capitialism? If someone thought a new venue for the arts could be profitable, then maybe someone would risk their own money to build it. But even staunch capitalists don't make a move these days without a guaranteed taxpayer subsidy. Let's subsidize the truly needy, not the truly greedy.

We have good performing arts venues now. Take care of what we already have. A new venue would simply mean we would neglect current venues.

Re: “Local Dems are in a heap of trouble

If you don't have money, I suppose you could always try to make politics about the important issues instead of money. But that's crazy talk, I know. If you can't buy an election or a politician, then why bother, right?

Re: “City Council members not satisfied with PAC study proposal

We spent millions on a failed fast ferry, the county spends more to house animals at the zoo they they spend to help house the homeless and we let a local theater group help fund a study to see if we need a new performing arts center. Something really stinks in all his.

Re: “City Council members not satisfied with PAC study proposal

Can we guarantee people currently living in poverty will benefit from any jobs created?
