  • Re: Fair Wages

     Hi Again, I work in local government, managing analysts and doing project management. I think the California minimum wage is $9.79 or something like that and as I said within SF is higher and may get raised again. My daughter just got hired at a cheese steak shop in the financial district for $14/hr but not getting many hours. My other ...

  • Re: Fair Wages

     I'm fortunate that I have a career that pays very well. I've worked for 34 years to get here, climbing "the ladder". I make $55 / hour (though that's salary for 40 hours and I often work many more hours than 40 per week and don't expect compensation for it). In San Francisco, we have a minimum wage higher than ...

  • Re: Domino's Founder Vs Obamacare

    It has gotten to the point that I feel like I need to know the political leanings of all company owners so I can be sure where I spend my money. Thanks for the heads up,

  • Re: Did your wages increase?

    I'm in the Social Services industry (though I'm an Analyst not a Social Worker) and we have gotten back the wage loss we've suffered over the past few years (furloughs and other wage reductions). I think actual wage increases will come in the next union contract because clearly the economy is coming back. I hope we can keep moving ...

  • Re: Car Vs Motorcycle

    I ride a scoter whenever I don't have to carry anyone else. The cost savings are huge. Insurance is only about $100 a year and I pay about $5 or $6 a week in gas. Compared to my hybrid at $35 every three weeks or $45 every week and a half in a regular car. If I was just me with no dependants I'd ride the scooter (or a motorcycle) all the ...

    I have to admit, when I saw the subject line I was very sceptical but it is a really cute idea!

  • Re: Children's Perceptions

    Sorry but from the way you described the woman and the boys... those boys are spoiled brats if the only reason they can find to call her lazy and reject her is no home baked bread. I say they need to be able to accept the lunch that is made for them (and she's lazy?) or they can make the bread and the lunch themselves! Ugh!

  • Re: Cioppino Anyone?

    I have not had good luck with frozen cioppino. It has always had fake crab and the lowest quality shellfish. Its funny too, the original cioppino was a poor man's (fisherman's) dish. Now its probably the most expensive dish on the menu.
