California minimum wage is $10.50 on its way to $15, I think.
I was just responding to your saying the minimum wage is a federal thing by pointing out that California's minimum wage is much higher than the federal.

Maybe I misunderstood what you meant.

Coleman was a thief no doubt, but Kilpatrick is in the federal pen for 26 more years. Thank god!

We will see a day, probably sooner rather than later, when all fast food ordering is done at a kiosk. Then robots will be developed to cook the food and the entire store will need a staff of maybe two. So that is lost opportunity for tons of people to get a foothold in the job market.

Businesses that can't automate will either cut staff or hope that customers will pay a higher price for whatever it is they are providing. And we know how that charging a higher price thing usually works out.
thank you!
this is what im noticing. and when people with high paying jobs or good jobs chime in with this its good stuff it is not. not even 6 months and this min wage spike has been offset.
I use to go to carls jr 1 time a week for a 2 big burgers 1.25$ each now its 1.56$ thats out of the question now eating out as a whole.
my food budget of 45$ every 2 weeks became 75$ every week and going fresh only cut 15$
it is easy to point out things are not bad when you have a salary job or a job working contracts in areas that are expanding.
but when the life blood min wage job decline in the food industry grocery stores and in general the service industry it hurts people who depend on that area to make money to even survive.
truth be told.

I love my Camaro maybe a little to much. but I don't want car payments I want a beater but when I had that I was spending 400$ a month in repairs and gas alone I was making new car payments to keep a Junker going
I drive 30-60 miles a day depending on where my post is at.
I mean its all over papers around California we have a dieing service industry. http://www.sacbee.com/news/state/cal...136478098.html
I don't get how people don't look at the numbers and go were growing as a state were not!

Minimum wage is one small piece of what's killing California. Look at your taxes. Companies are finally saying enough is enough and moving to states that want them. When they move the business out of state, the jobs go with them but not many of the people. Over time this reduces the state income and they find other ways to squeeze money from those still living there. How much did CA just raise gas taxes, something over 30%. Whether you like them or not, sanctuary cities are a huge drain on the state bank account that don't generate any income in return. But, hey, it's your state.

Kommifurnia sucks. Nobody could pay me enuff $$$ to live there. What I don't like is how Kalifurnians are moving to Texas and bringing their brain dead Socialism. Take a listen to the Dr. Of Common Sense.

Back on topic-I just want to say at least the Camaro and Corvette is STILL being made even tho Detroit has become the ARM-PIT of America. Also, I had no idea Detroit was such a beautiful city pre-1950. Thank God for Canada and their manpower taking over the manufacturing of the Camaro!

Gen6 Camaros are made in Lansing Michigan. 'Fake News' Brought to you by...Liquidity, as usual.

My mistake. Well this is good news however I wished the Camaro was made in a Southern state like SC, NC or Alabama. The Tundra is made in Tennessee and BMW makes Bimmers in SC-they all do very good work in the South. The 4th Gen Camaro was made in Canada so it's easy to say Canada makes a lot of GM stuff these days.

I'm watching FAKE NEWS (CNN) now so maybe I am brainwashed like everyone today, if you can't beat them, join them.

Isn't like jeep spending a ton of cash to retrofit a factory in Detroit I remember hearing that 8months ago? And if so I hope that brings back some hope.
I remember as a kid I wanted to live in Detroit
Mostly because MOTOR CITY, all I knew was cars I wanted to work in the factory's putting cars together. To be honest I would work a assembly line again for like 10-15$ an hour 20$ would be nice but its not really needed.
To bad we can't use Detroit for like a movie set for post apocalypse moves.
Maybe just pay the people who live there for extras or to build sets.

People there are already making urban farms? Maybe teardown the trashed homes for farm land, pay the people to farm food for the remaining city left? Has to be something the country can do to revive the state and Detroit.
