Weed legalization is on the ballot for April too TKC. This should be a fun vote.

Yes KCMO needs as many stoned space cases as it can get.

The legality of this type of approach isn't going to fly. All that needs to be done is the employers, starting with the city gov of kcmo, to start immediately paying 15$/hr to its lowest paid workers- and the rest will follow. Just do it. It does not take a law to pay your employee 15$/hr. They will greatly appreciate it and work hard for you and you will work 'em hard too. Friggin' simple.

Mot so damn simple when you, as the consumer or small business owner is forced to give your money away because some dreg is too damn lazy to further himself so he can qualify for a job that actually does pay more. This is nothing but welfare paid by everyone, except the one person who could have sone something about his situation.

Retail is already on the ropes with online shopping and diners will pass up the plaza and crossroads for Overland Park, Lees Summit and other places where they refuse to have their pockets picked. When tax revenue actually goes down lets see how much these $15.00 and hour burger sackers are going to be paying.

531, then watch the layoffs begin and politicians run for cover if this goes through, cause taxes will go UP and people will be voting out every politician

I wish they would raise the min wage to $38 an hour. These workers deserve to make this much! I would not mind paying a little extra for a burger... a Big Mac would likely only cost $12 and a 3 piece gig of chicken only $32. Soft drinks should only be $8 andthey could charge $6 to go to the bathroom. A gallon of gas would only need to be $7 a gallon. Clearly this is a win-win.
And since Sly is such genius- he could raise taxes 200 %.
He could tax KC into prosperity... this works out great... ask Detroit!

No sarcasm here...

So is this coalition of clergy going to pay all their staff $15 an hour?

Why is no one protesting the inflated cost of living.

McDonald's have automated kiosks ready. Half the workers will be laid off if this is voted in.

Certainly NOT THESE LOSERS HOLDING THE SIGNS...

But somebody is.

That's who we need to hang by the balls.

Endless marches, protests, and demands.
Murder rate rising every month.
Water bills going through the roof.
Petition drives placing one issue after another on the ballot.
Desperate misleading campaigning trying to get an $800 million bond issue passed.
KCMO spinning out of control with apparently no one at the wheel.
Meanwhile the city council and a whole menagerie of agencies just keeps shoveling tax money out the door for insiders and supporters.
It's really too bad KCMO doesn't have a city government.

Too bad nobody here ever thinks of moving somewhere else if they're so dissatisfied.

But, if you're that dumb, hey - run with it.

WTF

This whole thing, like most things in KCMO, is ridiculous. It's the adult version of "everyone gets a trophy so no one feels bad." Half of these fast food workers don't know which end of the paper bag to put the food in, but a bunch of libtards have decided they're worth $15/hr??? WTF??? On the other hand, people who start off at the low wages and show positive traits like hard work, ambition and dependability rarely fail to move up, take classes, etc. to advance their earning potential. But why reward personal achievement?

This is a pretty misleading post. Nothing happened and no one has won anything yet. This is nothing more than the judge saying not to do anything until the court reviews the arguments on Monday.

They keep saying that and it keeps going forward.

Pay the workers fairly!
