When any human embarks upon any injurious situation,
rather it be physical, criminal, medical, or otherwise, to cover them with a blanket is not the solution to healing.
Only truth and treament sets us free. Where is the motor-
cycle with all the gifts and support from IMPD for the real
"family" "our community" all of us who suffered this loss
of innocent life at the hands of Bisard as well as those who
have supported him during this serious vehecular accident.
The defense thereof is not to be envied.
Attorney Abdul has produced excellent coverage of this
Bisard case. The Truck incident says it all. I am totally
convinced of his guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt. I am
very disappointed in IMPD as how so many came to defend
a law breaker even if he is one of "their own". Wrong is still
wrong if everybody is doing it. Bisard killed and injured and he wrecked his truck. He is an alcoholic. He broke the law.
He qualifies for job loss, conviction, and imprisonment.

Sounds a lot like the "CONSERVATIVES" in congress.
From "Socializing Capital," by William G. Roy, p.256: " The corporate form of property was developed when the boundary between public and private spheres was fuzzy at best. The rights, entitlements, and responsibilities that the state enforced for those who controlled corporations could have only arisen for enterprises infused with a public purpose." This was the state of affairs in the mid 1800's, when the corporation idea was just starting to take off. When Delaware got to the bottom first in its incorporation law, relieving investors of much of the threat of liability, much of the requirements for a "public purpose" were dropped.
If you want a living wage, work to get a living skill.
Herman - corporations are established for the public good? Where is this law?
also, see Fran Quigley's column and comment for the 29 May 2013 article in Nuvo.
Ruth and realitycheck13 get it; plus these facts:
1) the minimum wage has not kept up with inflation - if it did, it would be about $10/hour
2) if it kept up with productivity increases of labor, it would be about $16/hour
3) corporations are established for the public good - they are to be socially responsible, even though that requirement is rarely enforced anymore
4) see Bill Moyer's interview with Richard Wolf for refutations of the economic objections (http://billmoyers.com/segment/richard-wolf… in short, more people will be better off with a higher minimum wage, because more people will be spending their pay, as lower income people spend more of their income to survive
5) as Howard Zinn (the best recommendation for him: Mitch Daniels hates his work) put it, nobody works harder than the people who perform the dirtiest, most unpleasant and dangerous jobs - janitors, CNA's, mine workers, to name a few, and they get paid the least.
Lets say that Bob works at BurgerWorld for 6 months. He's gotten a hang of the job and can make burgers twice as fast as Daehtop (guess where he spends his money;) He asks the boss for a raise, boss sees that keeping Bob around is a smart move and gives him an extra 50 cents an hour. The boss makes out far more than that, and both Bob and boss are happy. Daehtop takes a lot of smoke breaks (that *is* tobacco, isn't it?) and never really improves his quality or speed. Boss gives him the kick in the face nickel an hour raise. Neither of them is making minimum wage anymore.
Are there jobs out there that never give raises since I never seen them. And if you never have a job long enough to get a raise, thats another issue that needs to be dealt with.
The article you link to is about workers negotiating with their employers, via a strike. It mentions these strikes may influence the call for the government to raise the minimum wage, but that is a different issue from workers uniting to negotiate.
You're right! Those lazy fastfood workers should go to a for profit college and get stuck with debt and no job. Then return to making hamburgers. Or they could go to a real college, get stuck with even more debt and still no job. That is how people are get stuck working a minimum wage job for life. Plus to pay for basic needs it takes 2 minimum wage jobs survive.
Even though we like to think of minimum wage jobs as "transitions," the reality is that many people do work minimum wage jobs permanently. The reasons vary: being cut because of staffing downsizes, little to no access to higher education, etc. People talk about raising minimum wage because many people have to live off it despite the fact that it's difficult to live (healthily, at least) of of minimum wage earnings.
They also don't understand that if the minimum wage goes up, I would bet that costs for everything goes up to meet it , and they would be right where they were, and we would in effect loose money.
Shabazz scores again. Bravo.
Sweeping floors and microwaving a pre-prepared hambuger
is not brain taxing nor a 'career' job. It is temporary or meant to be temporary for reasons stated in the column.
$15 / hr is about $28,500 a year. For pushing a wrapped burger in a microwave and pouring a drink in a cup?
Give me a break!
In this country you are rewarded by hard work, talent, effort, ingenuity, not simple tasks.
Yep, Black Expo, not just for black folks anymore.
Maybe Indy should try the 'Man Up' program that seems
to be working in Brooklyn. Check out the New York Times
article, within the last week.
Way to shoot the messenger, those of you calling out the writer. The first step towards a Cure is identifying the Cause.
*He's* being played by racists, and not criminals who daily give the racists something to point out? --Anyone with half a brain realizes the actual criminals are a tiny fraction of the community and as for those who don't, let 'em go sulk under their bedsheets with eyeholes: their day is over, long over, and it's never coming back.
So in other words, Abdul, you're for the death penalty without due process. Interesting take on justice.
