1950Brutus - Illlinois Dem leaders urge minimum wage hike - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
AND for every hour paid at the higher rate is 5 cents more in tax revenues. Doesn't sound like much but wouldn't you like to have a nickel for every additional 5 cents they get.
pjohnf - Illlinois Dem leaders urge minimum wage hike - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Durbin, Quinn and Schakowsky are pushing the minimum wage increase as a payoff to their union buddies because as the minimum goes up the unions can use the increase to support increases for their members. And that way the unions will have more money to give to the democrats. The vicious money laundering cycle continues.
pjohnf - Strawman: Obama\'s Right--It\'s Time to Fix the Immigration System........ - Quincy, IL News - Quinc
Obama's, Reid, Pelosi's and Durbin's version of immigration reform isn't true reform but it is amnesty or as some like to call it, democrat voter registration. Unless and until the border is fully secured and the flow of illegal aliens is stopped, the madness will continue. Our inept government also needs to implement E-Verify in the workplace nationwide and any employer caught…
pjohnf - Back pay, OT pushes Illinois government’s ‘$100,000 club’ to 7,800 members - Quinc
Good grief how many Judges does it take to run the courts in Cook county? Must be a lot of crime and corruption in Cook county. Oh that's right, Cook county is run by corrupt progressive democrats so they need a lot of judges to adjudicate all the crime and corruption.
1950Brutus - Fast food workers vow civil disobedience - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
It seems it would be difficult to pay "disorderly conduct" fines when making minimum wage. Or maybe there is a government program for this?? Comparing this movement to the civil rights movement is laughable. If they want to be taken seriously they need to drop this.
