Las Vegas Professor shot himself in arm to protest Trump

A longtime College of Southern Nevada sociology professor is facing felony gun charges in connection with an on-campus shooting on the second day of classes.

Mark J. Bird, 69, was charged last month with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property, court records show. He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.

Inside the bathroom, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor,” according to Bird’s arrest report. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.

NYC Restaurants Slash Staff over $15 Minimum Wage

20 Jan 2019

New York City restaurants, feeling the pinch of trying to make ends meet, are slashing their staff after a state law that took effect at the end of 2018 is mandating restaurants with 11 or more workers to pay a $15 an hour minimum wage.

The legal minimum wage in New York City rose from $13 to $15 on December 31, 2018, giving workers a temporary hourly raise while forcing employers to cut those employees’ hours to make ends meet.

The wage hike is the city’s third since December 31, 2016, when the city’s minimum wage rose to $11 an hour.

The latest state-mandated minimum wage increase is being phased in across different parts of the state until 2021 when most of the state’s workers will receive a $15 an hour minimum wage.

Jon Bloostein, the operator of six New York City restaurants with 50 to 110 workers on the payroll at each, said the wage hike is “an immense cost” for his business to shoulder.

“We lost control of our largest controllable expense,” he told CBS News. “So in order to live with that and stay in business, we’re cutting hours.”

Bloostein said he has increased the prices on the restaurant menu and staggered employee start times to cut down on costs.



Previous minimum wage hikes in the city have forced restaurant owners to choose between raising their prices or closing their doors. One East Village restaurant, Angelica Kitchen, had to close after 40 years of being in business because of the increased labor costs.

Even though the city just instituted its $15 an hour minimum wage for most New York City employers, one New York Times columnist proposed that the city raise the minimum wage up to $33 an hour.

This clown wants to to see NYC shut down.

Washington Post fact checks Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.....

Ocasio-Cortez’s misfired facts on living wage and minimum wage

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... f8be1dcbe0


She gets 3 Pinocchios

I found this little bit interesting:

Quote:
Ocasio-Cortez is media-savvy and appears to have tried to preempt this fact-check shortly after we had a tense conversation with her spokesman. She tweeted: “Me: ‘I don’t think billionaires should concentrate wealth while employing people who are sleeping in cars working a zillion hours to survive.’ Next day: ‘That will be TEN PINOCCHIOS to Ocasio, “zillion” is not a number and I found someone who sleeps in a tent, not a car.’ ”



AOC is not happy when people start throwing "Facts" around.
