Re: “Trump's To-Do List

Will President Trump tweet something offensive enough to turn public opinion against him?

Apparently not.

Re: “How's That For Respect?

More important than a wage hike is FULL TIME STATUS. I agree the minimum wage needs to be raised. It is not a "living wage". However, I can make more money working full time at $9.47 per hour than I can working 24 hours a week at $13.00 per hour. Most employers in retail and food service do not hire employees to work full time. AND, if the minimum wage is increased, they will simply cut employees hours. At my last job, they were not required to give me a minimum number of hours per week. They could schedule me for 4 hours if they felt like it. Why? Why not give one person 40 hours instead of giving three people 13 hours? One reason is insurance. Companies are not required to provide insurance to part time employees. Why not just go out and get a second job? Sure, everyone wants to work two jobs and not have a life or a set schedule and pay for their own insurance. Fun times.

Re: “How Spokane Beat Potholes

"Ben Stuckart says, he hasn't been hearing many pothole complaints."

That's because people have given up complaining when it does no good. Some roads like 2nd avenue haven't been repaved for over 50 years. Just look at recent work on Sunset highway. It's worse than it was before they attempted to "repave" it. Look at Indian Canyon drive where the standard method of filling potholes is "throw a shovel of asphalt into a hole and let the cars flatten it out". LOL
