KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS DEMANDS MINIMUM WAGE SPIKE!!!

Doing biz with city hall has always been expensive and today Mayor Q employs his authority as mayor to force Kansas City partners into a financial decision mandated by 12th & Oak and not their own budgets or needs.

Here's the damage . . .

“Humane wage requirements are linked to a reduction in crime rates and utilization of social services, and have potential economic benefits for our city,” Lucas said. “Today, I am proud of the City of Kansas City’s commitment to ensuring decent wages and working conditions for workers throughout our community. This is an important step to ensure all who work hard to maintain and improve our city also have resources to lift up themselves and their families.”

"According to the ordinance, quasi-governmental and nonprofit should agree to pay the following wages:

    Beginning May 1, 2021: $12.50;
    Beginning September 1, 2021: $13.75;
    Beginning September 1, 2022: $15.

"Also on Thursday is a vote by the Kansas City, Missouri, City Council that would increase the minimum pay rate for city employees by $1.25 per hour to $13.75.

"KCMO voters passed a minimum wage increase to $15 by 2022 by a massive margin in August 2017."

To be fair, these aren't exorbitant spikes but the gesture sends a clear message. 

MAYOR Q DICTATES TERMS TO EMPLOYERS INSIDE CITY LIMITS!!!

The precedent has been justified by local voters but could be challenged in Jeff City given the GOP Super-Majority aversion to these unilateral moves.

working with city hall has always been an expensive proposition.

I wouldn't call what most of these non-profits "work" per se.

if you think the mayor will stop with non profits, that's completely wrong. Just a look at the future for doing business inside kcmo.

Well that will certainly help the number of businesses out that you have pushed almost to the point of closing. How about you raise taxes while you're at it? Whatcha say Q Ball? Go big or go home! Fucking moron!

Creeping libtard incrementalism. Once he gets his foot in the door you are further fucked Kansas Shitty. It's never just this one little segment. It will grow. Glad I'm out of that shithole town.

NYC and KC having the same minimum wage makes complete sense! All the NYers will move to KC for nonexistent jobs.

Good move. Our restaurants and hospitality businesses are struggling already. Let's raise their labor costs so we can put the few remaining ones out of business. I wish I had learned economics at commie university, too. This way I wouldn't have to use the reasoning part of my brain. Where is that recall list again?

The best advice for anyone with a brain in Kansas Shitty can be summed up in two words:

MOVE ELSEWHERE

Why do they need a raise? They already live rent free, right? What’s next? Free tattoos?

Q ball should stick to what he's good at: driving drunk in downtown Lawrence. He sucks ass as a mayor and as a human. πŸ˜πŸ™„πŸΏ

You can always count on folks like Lucas to tell other people how to spend their money.
Meanwhile, he continues to be on the taxpayers' dime and doesn't need to have the slightest concern about where that money comes from.
The emptiest of empty suits.

they just raise what they charge the city so it comes back to bite city taxpayers

move out of there but leave your democratic leanings at the door on your way out

The Demonrat cockroaches can stay in the shithole that they made and figure out how to pay for it on their own. 😏🍿🍺

So this will definitely kill the Power and Light district. It will also kill Zona Rosa, Westport, The Plaza, Arrowhead, The Royals Stadium, Waldo and Brookside areas too. You don't have to worry about it affecting 18th and Vine or the East side as there aren't any destination restaurants there anyway. I can't believe that there are jobs within City Hall that don't pay over $13 and hour now but I guess there must be. In a city with so much wrong with the budget this is the wrong move Q-ball. Now Johnson County will again be growing as everybody goes there to have a great and safe meal at a reasonable price and the servers and chef's will find work in food places that are open, where the patrons tip, especially since the bars no longer have to have 30% of tabs be for food. Great timing Q.
