It’s not that they can’t. They rely on fake numbers to give the rubes a reason to believe that Democrats Are Lying and This Is Fine.

My first paying job was at Douglas Aircraft in El segundo in the summer of 1965. It was a union shop and the pay was 3.40/hr, a fortune for a 16 year old at the time (minimum wage was 1.25/hr. iirc). I made enough in 14 weeks to pay for my first car, buy my mother a fancy china cabinet, and pay the aircraft rental for my first flying lessons.

CL’d from the last thread.

I sold rocks, minerals, railroad spikes, insulators etc. when I was a little kid. It was like an enhanced lemonade stand. I also sold God’s eyes door to door. Did a fairly solid business with both. I was maybe 8 or 9.

re: #16 Jack Burton, Gunner on Death Star of David

I just wish the Democrats had started with the actual number it should be (north of $22 an hour) instead of throwing a compromise out to start with. That’s not how you negotiate.

To elaborate on these numbers:

The peak in real adjusted for inflation dollar value of the minimum wage was in 1970. It was $1.60/hour.

Simply adjusting that for inflation and taking nothing else into account is $11.07/per hour now.

I can’t find the numbers for a worker productivity increase since 1970 right now, but even if we just figured the productivity increase since 1980, it would $18.71/hour.

So already the $15 is a compromise, but not an unreasonable one.

The $22 figure I’ve seen multiple places before and I believe it was being stated as valid for inflation+productivity a few years ago.

No, I didn’t start flying till that fall after I went back to Edwards when school started. We flew out of Mojave. It was an interesting place even then, but not as much as it is now. I have flown out of Hawthorne though, but not since Spacex moved in. I like it, as well as Zamperini in Torrance (great museum there) but both are very confined and uncomfortably close to LAX.

That’s a point Republicans ignore: Many businesses would benefit from higher wages at the low end. Greed Old Party policies allow fatcats to make thousands of times as much as working people but they won’t buy thousands of times as much food, or thousands of times as many refrigerators.

This mac -n - cheese recipe is not very difficult, and is fabulous. Maybe you could toast the panko in a bit of butter, and bake longer to get browned and melted cheese at the edges, but going strictly by the recipe gives great results - I would try that first (that is all that I have done so far).

The central underlying fact of my public life is the realization that a kid from the kind of background I had could not do what I have done. Living costs are too high, wages too low, and college is exhorbitant. Tax cuts limit revenue even as income disparity puts massive pressure on what resources are available. Republican policies are the reason and it has been quite deliberate. Strangling opportunity is one of their primary goals, so only the self-declared “right people” have it.

OK, I read this in Spanish, but am providing the English translation for anyone who is interested.

This guy, Naasón Joaquín García, is the head apostle of La Luz del Mundo. He was arrested in California in 2019 on various sex abuse and trafficking charges. Last I heard, he was being held on $50 million bail (that is the number) while his trial is delayed due to COVID-19. (Charges had to be dropped and refiled but there are a LOT of them.) The article has lots of pictures and background on the organization, but it’s also got some fairly vivid descriptions of rape and child sexual abuse (at least in the Spanish version). So yeah, fair warning.

Some websites are using a hack that thwarts anti-tracking countermeasures by exploiting the tiny icons that sites display in users’ browser tabs and bookmark lists (favicons), according to a study by University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC) researchers. The researchers said most browsers cache images in a location independent of those that store site data, browsing history, and cookies; sites can load a series of favicons on visitors’ browsers that flag them over an extended period of time. The UIC team said any website can deploy the attack workflow without user interaction or consent, even when popular anti-tracking extensions are implemented. In addition, the hack utilizes resources in the favicon cache even with incognito browsing engaged, due to improper isolation practices found in all major browsers.

re: #15 Rightwingconspirator

My first paid job was wrenching as an apprentice mechanic. The next Summer I went to work for the family firm in jewelry mfg. Better than the minimum, but not by much lol

My first paid job was pumping gas, changing oil and mounting tires at my dad’s service station when I was 14-15. The money was going to pay off a drum set my dad had bought for me. He let me quit before the drums were paid off and I think it’s because I was picking up ‘language’ at the station that my mom didn’t like at all.

I liked how Katie kept asking DeJoy about what it was that he liked best, what was most valuable, about the USPS when she knew he hates everything about it.

My first paid job was washing dishes. I forget how much it was an hour because what I do remember is that my first paycheck BOUNCED! O_o It cleared several tries later but the restaurant was not long for the world.

The next job was between my junior/senior year. Dishwashing again but at a summer camp for rich kids. The pay was meh, but food & board were included and the bennies were great. All the stuff for the kiddies was up for grabs when they weren’t using them. When I’d get done with morning dishes, I’d use the rifle range for an hour or two and after lunch dishes, I’d go sailing on the lake in their sunfish type sailboats. After supper me and the rest of the teens working there would play DND & Traveller. A short walk downtown was a bookstore. All in all a great summer.

Mike Pence knows if he ‘keeps his mouth shut’ the Capitol rioters won’t bother him again: GOP ex-staffer

Pence finds that proposal acceptable.

Close ally of Marjorie Taylor Greene among those in Capitol mob

Greene and Aguero have worked closely together over the years on causes such as immigration and the border wall and have attended pro-Trump rallies together. In many since-deleted videos saved by CNN’s KFile, Greene repeatedly calls Aguero “amazing” and a “friend.” On social media, Aguero has called Greene “one of my closest friends.”

“A message was sent,” Aguero said in the video streamed live on January 6 while walking away from the Capitol on Pennsylvania Avenue following the riot. “These politicians are not going to continue to get away with the abuse as they’ve been doing. We will continue to press on these individuals.”

“The National Guard has just been called in,” he continued. “A woman was shot in the face earlier. There was blood all over the floor. I recorded it for y’all. I could not go live during the whole event because the signal was either jammed purposely or there was just too many, too many people out there. Guys, I was able to make it inside the chambers and I have footage that I’m going to provide for you guys as we made our way in there.”

Congress held its first hearing on the Capitol riots on Tuesday, in which law enforcement officials testified the attacks were likely coordinated.
