"Agree or not with more cash for local fast food workers" and fewer jobs.... Fixed it. You're welcome.

^^^^ Doubtful you really care about people making minimum wage either way and your economic theory doesn't stand up. It turns out that the fast food companies are too cheap to invest in robots either. Sorry but that threat was empty.

Applause given to uneducated plebes trying to turn an entry level job into a career. News at 11.

One reason DST Systems Inc sold itself is they couldn't face a mandatory $15.00 pay requirement for workers. They pay the lowest in town. I met a DST rep that travelled the whole a few years back USA and he was making $13,500 per year and no overtime. He got a $25 bonus at year end - a gift car for use on the Plaza.

I've met service workers who deserve $15 an hour and more. They are great at their jobs, make people feel welcome in the business, and keep the attitude to themselves. Most of the jobs are CRAP. Anyone who has had one would agree.
