    Too bad, because that's the world your party imposed on us: corporate political bribery is protected speech while labor has no rights.

    My point was retail has changed. KMart has shrunk. Amazon has grown.

    Dogecoin just passed $2B in market capitalization.

    It had broken $1B on January 4th.

    It is a parody.

    Buried in the tax bill was a provision to allow oil exploration in Arctic Reserve, followed by announcement of expanded oil / gas leases on most of US continental shelf.

    US looking for permanent source of revenue that does not rely on taxation. Hundreds of billions of potential lease / royalty income in years to come.

    Interior Department also tasked to charge market prices for grazing rights and timber harvests.

    That will make it even harder for the Bundy's to not pay for their grazing bill.

    And the backwoods McDonald's in the town I was working last summer refused to participate in the "Any Size Drinks for $1"promotion. The McDonald's at the Oasis on the Illinois Tollway does not participate in the "Dollar Menu" promotions.

    Remind me again how one franchised location's owner refusing to participate in a corporate national promotion is caused by $15/hr?

    Especially when those getting $8.25/hr in Illinois aren't participating.




    Also, I thought it was automated cashier/ordering machines that was killing the $15/hr job in Seattle. Can these people pick a narrative and stick with it?

    My company apparently hates OT and has cut it, ****ing a whole bunch of people off. Corporate came through a couple weeks ago, and after that, the "be off the floor by X time" speeches from supervisors came.

    We have problems with retention, and this will not help.

    As for me, I'm not bereft of job options. I could try and get promoted, look elsewhere for work, or play the long game and go back to school.

    That happens all the time. Usually around contract negotiation time or when things are tight. Honestly, thems the breaks in the hourly world.
