Coach, how many of those recently unemployed people have you offered to sleep on your couch?
Seems only fair. Do the right thing man.
I see, Wendy's profits are WAY down, they are losing money hand over fist and need to find some way to cut costs. Those poor executives.
Oh wait, maybe you should fucking learn how to Google before you say stupid shit. They're making plenty of money. This money just goes back into their pocket to buy more yachts and hookers. This is just a continuation of the upward transfer of wealth that I've been talking about for like a decade. But you assfucks just keep trying to blame it on the victims who are just trying to feed their kids.
So, what's your plan, Shaun? Just gonna let those kids die in the street? Or are you going to give MASSIVE tax-supported subsidies to multi-billionaires to support those people they de-employed? Hm? That's pretty much your two option.
I mean, of course, there's always the option of taxing the billionaires, but jeezus we can't do that. Those are the job creators, remember what your Lord Reagan said. REMEMBER THE TRICKLE DOWN!!!

Judge strikes down Miami Beach’s minimum wage increase
Miami Beach’s new minimum wage law, which aims to raise the mandatory citywide wage to $13.31 by 2021, was struck down in Miami-Dade circuit court Tuesday, setting the stage for an escalation in the legal showdown between Tallahassee and City Hall.
The Florida Retail Federation, Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association and Florida Chamber of Commerce filed suit against the city in December over the city law, arguing that it is preempted by state law. Later, state Attorney General Pam Bondi filed a motion to intervene to defend the constitutionality of the state preemption law.
On Tuesday, Judge Peter Lopez invalidated the ordinance, ruling in favor of the alliance of the state and the statewide business groups, which insisted the requirement would be devastating for local businesses.
R. Scott Shalley, president and CEO of the retail federation, called the decision “great news for Florida retailers and the entire business community, as this ruling does not place an additional mandate on local businesses by requiring Miami Beach business owners to provide wages above what the state has previously established in law.”
Miami Beach’s attorneys said they will appeal immediately.
$8.10 is Florida’s minimum wage, as of Jan. 1 this year
Florida’s minimum wage went up from $8.05 to $8.10 an hour on Jan 1. Lauded by labor unions and derided by business interests, the Beach’s ordinance mandates the new citywide minimum to be set at $10.31 on Jan. 1, 2018, and then increase by a dollar a year until 2021. The effective date of 2018 was purposeful — attorneys anticipated a legal challenge and wanted to give the city time to sort it out.
