Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Missouri legislators passed a base pay rise, but after that the Chamber of Business can be found in to kill it. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Jayar Jackson, and also Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, talk about. Inform us what you believe in the comment area listed below.

" Yet on Friday, leads of her ever obtaining the raise she so desperately needs dimmed better. Republican politicians in the state us senate pushed with a billin the last few hours of the session that blocks the St. Louis minimum wage boost. If Gov. Eric Greitens (R) signs it, the city's base pay will revert it back to the state's flooring of $7.70 a hr in August. The governor could not be immediately grabbed remark.

" They maintain having fun with it and also taking it back," Douglas stated of the legislature's vote. "Each day I'm striving, as well as it's so tough to pay my costs. Then they inform us that we do not be worthy of a raise."

Not everyone in the state legislature got on board with blocking the pay boost. Sen. Jamilah Nasheed (D) was one of the legislators who organized a two-hour filibuster versus the legislation when it was first considered on Wednesday. "It was the appropriate thing to do," she said. "I aren't sure anybody in the St. Louis location that could live off of $7.70 an hour … It's just inhumane."" *.

      J Briggs, I would think the minimum wage would effect you greatly. Or are your state benefir paying your way? Normal decent humans who are fighting for your right to get minimum wage, well we aren’t living on that wage. We’re trying to help people, like you, in need.

    You get the government you vote for. By the way Jimmy Dore, tell me again how Democrats and Republicans are the same, considering that the Democrats did a filibuster to protect their workers. Moving on.

      There are reasons more than being evil for not wanting a large minimum wage. This is not a black and white issue. Increasing minimum wages will lower the incentive to stay in school.
      I’m not against a minimum wage, nor am I against increasing it, but you have to realize that this is a patch. People will be replaced by robots or jobs will be shipped oversea.
      The real problem is that wealth generates wealth and that problem is exponentially growing. Setting a minimum wage alone will not help at all with the real issue.

      $15 an hour is middle class 1%er wage.
      How about instead we make $4 an hour livable again by abolishing as many taxes as possible?

      no, even if a person is dumb enough to choose the “hurt me” lever, that doesn’t mean they deserve to be hurt.

      and also, your children should not suffer for your stupid decisions. gop policies don’t just affect gop voters.

      and when you say they voted these GOP people in, you are ignoring the massive effect of corporate money and gerrymandering. in a fair system, perhaps those gop would not have WON.

      a lack of strong education is why people will vote for the person who will hurt them. it’s a cycle, and you have to say “you are stupid, but we will pump funds into your system regardless, so your kids don’t end up hurting themselves, too.”

      westingtyler ideas I disagree it is a valid reason. If u put your hand on a hot stove knowing it will burn u then u deserve to get burned. unfortunately they also forcing our hands on the stove as well by voting in those doushbags

    • Posted by Coyote Bongwater, at Reply

      Redneck Gamer They don’t know it will burn them. Their pastors tell them how to vote, their upbringing tells them how to vote, the lies of the republican politicians tell them how to vote. They just never learn. If they knew, there wouldn’t be a right-wing party that isn’t comprised solely of white nationalists and hyper-corrupt corporatists.

      Actually no St Louis doesn’t vote for them. That’s why they punish us because we are a spot of blue in a sea of red

    And is Missouri a red or blue state? because this could be a self inflicted wound? Yup, they voted for Trump, so this is a self inflicted wound! 

    • Posted by Allyson King, at Reply

      I’m from Missouri my whole life and we are so split but mostly go red

    • Posted by Coyote Bongwater, at Reply

      OutlawRebel117 You? I respect a lot of your comments, they’re usually pretty well informed. But we didn’t make our bed… barely more than half of the state went for Trump. The middle-class turned out in droves in favor for him here; people who don’t worry about minimum wage. Our state is not a strawman, and you should be ashamed for mocking us, the working class suffering under wage slavery. They lowered our already dramatically low wages. Our state is fire at will and right to work. We are dying, and it isn’t because of voters. It’s the corporatists in office here.

      Missouri is very red outside of KC, Columbia, and St. Louis. Springfield I believe is sorta half and half, and these are by far the biggest population centers. The problem is almost literally everyone outside of these places vote R every time :/

    • Posted by Coyote Bongwater, at Reply

      OriginalDiddy People forget that, for the midwest, our cities are very populated–and there do exist liberal-to-moderate dems in rural areas, even though they don’t fit in with these communities very well.

    How can you pretend to be Pro-Life Christians, and then cut people’s ability to live, via living wages?

      Abram Carroll Jesus never said the rich go to hell. He said itd hard for a rich man to go to heaven. This is because money bring great temptaion and greedyness.

    • Posted by Caitlyn Clark, at Reply

      Pro-Life is about controlling women. Nothing more. We know this because these same people aren’t pro-life in all other situations.

    • Posted by Caitlyn Clark, at Reply

      @BenKellis Actually, he didn’t say it was hard. It essentially said it was impossible for a rich man to go to heaven. He said a camel has a better chance of getting through the eye of a needle. So following your bible, if he can’t go to heaven, then where is he going? Hell.

    Raising minimum wage actually helps the economy. Some people need to learn some basic economics! People make more money they have more to spend. People make less money they are more frugal about spending money.

    • Posted by rouge1ful, at Reply

      Commie Thor64 thank you it’s basic economics if people don’t have enough money to spend then you aren’t buying things you could be buying or even want to buy, the economy becomes stagnant and that can’t happen because when the economy becomes stagnant it hurts it overall.

      Nate Hoffman, Seattle is a poor example to look at. One, the state of Washington has one of the highest teenage unemployment rate. Next, many factors contribute to the min. wage. Look at the top employers for the Seattle area

      Only three are government (if you count the University of Washington). The rest are private businesses and they pay well. Raising the min. wage will not influence employment that much when most of your top employers pay above that.

      Now look at Chicago who has an unemployment rate above 5%.

      Top four are all government. They do not attract major businesses and it shows with a higher unemployment rate.

      So the case of Seattle does not prove anything except that for people who point to it as an example of a higher min. wage doing well have little to no desire to dig deeper into the issue.

      The US wants to sign “free trade deals” in a protectionist world. Everyone else does it. America used to be protectionist. It’s smart. Can’t raise wages until you commit to protect major export industries.

    When Mcdonalds brought in All Day Breakfast. Most stores saw a 4% reduction in food waste because they no longer had to waste breakfast items at 11am. So these stores on average saved about $40,000 a year just by not having to waste breakfast items. Store owners could easily pay their full time employees $15/hr just with the waste savings alone.

      mark navarro That’s the major difference between a franchise and chain. A chain makes a lot versus a small franchise which employ people that is often being paid under the table. I worked for both.

      Restaurants and every other service industry negotiate with their purveyors for goods the use and sell; they pay increases as necessary, adjust pricing as needed. They are a notoriously low profit margin industry, less than 3% is average, if memory serves. Estimated increase to pay $15/hr is less than 5 cents.

    Graduate college, then go work at fast food for a career. Major in fries. Those are the jobs that remain in US. Met a chem eng that worked in rocket industry, now sells luggage. The plant moved. Many more stories like that.

    The greed is out of control. Mention profit sharing at any business and they act like you committed murder.

      +mark navarro Sure, that’s part of it, but to what extent? Focusing on regulation alone is a common Republican talking point that they love to peddle to the masses but that’s not where the story ends.
      But we can’t blame it all on regulation and which regulations are the ones that drove companies away? I hope it’s not safety or environmental regulations because those are important. Instead of throwing the word ‘regulation’ out there, they should say which ones they have issues with.

      In China people in factory jobs work 12-16 hour shifts, live in dorms near at factories, and make from 70 cents/hr to $1.85/hr. There are little to no unions and employers they can fire employees for whenever they want for any reason. They can also ask employees to come to do extra work at the factory any time after their 12-16 hour shift.
      That’s how iphones are made, even if the U.S. got rid of a lot of regulations there’s still the minimum wage to contend with and unions to protect workers. Those jobs are not easily coming back and even if they did, who would work under those conditions? Not many.

      The solutions are not that simple, Mark. Please don’t be one of those people who answer “we should cut regulations” for everything under the sun.

      Wrong, our state has been severely divided by a close margin since I was a kid in the 60’s. The rural areas here vote republican, while all of our cities, and some counties, vote almost entirely democrat. The politicians here take corporate backer money to push draconian economic policies, while promising the stupid, but well-meaning rural populations that they will help them through trickle-down economics voodoo. Don’t stawman us all into some homogenous conservative mass.

    The American minimum wage depresses me so much. Everyone deserves to earn enough money to live from their full time job, minimum wage doesn’t need to provide a flash life, but it should provide financial security.
