I would never wish ill will on her but if she can't do the job she needs to go. I would not be surprised if she is holding out because the GOP controls the senate.

Why do I see unions coming next for all restaurants.
Bingo! It's how the left works. Create a problem, then demand the same perpetrators be charged with fixing it.
Example: Out here in Ca the teachers went on strike, the Union claimed they need more bilingual teachers and classrooms are over crowded, problem is, they're over crowded because of Democrats,, for two reasons, letting in illegals, and they have fought against charter and home schooling.

See how that work? :sneaky:

Excellent short video.

In Boulder, Colorado, a new law took effect which bans not only the sale but possession of certain types of “assault rifles” and accessories. Falling under the shadow of that law was Denver Post columnist Jon Caldara, who owns an AR-15 style rifle. Rather than going and meekly turning in his firearm to the police, Caldara took to the pages of his newspaper and to YouTube as well to inform the government that he could not in good conscience comply with the order and would not be surrendering his rifle. It wasn’t quite a “Come and get ’em” message, but the impact was the same.

Jon Caldara, Denver Post columnist and Independence Institute president, published a video and column declaring he would not surrender his firearm despite a newly implemented Boulder regulation requiring him to do so.

“At the beginning of January I became a criminal in my tolerant hometown of Boulder,” Caldara wrote for the Complete Colorado.

On Jan. 1, Boulder’s ban on so-called assault weapons went into effect. Caldara said he is in violation of the law now because he owns a rifle with a pistol grip that accepts detachable magazines—a commonly owned style of rifle in the United States—and the city’s ban makes possession illegal of it unless residents submit to police inspection and certification of their firearm. He said he is a law-abiding father of two who won’t submit to police investigation and simply wants to be left alone by the city.

Stupid libs, they just don't grasp economics. :lol:

The legal minimum wage for New York City employers with 11 or more workers rose more than 15 percent on Dec. 31, 2018, to $15 per hour from $13, giving fast-food, retail and other employees a bump in pay. But some New York City restaurant owners say the latest minimum wage hike is forcing them to cut workers' hours just to stay afloat.

It's the third rise in the city's base wage since Dec. 31, 2016, when it went to $11 an hour. The latest increase is part of a plan that phases in minimum wage hikes across New York state, with amounts and effective dates varying by region and industry. It's not just a New York phenomenon, however: Minimum wages rose in 20 states with the new year, forcing businesses across the country to grapple with higher payrolls -- and compete for workers with giants like Amazon that are already offering $15 an hour.

Jon Bloostein operates six New York City restaurants that employ between 50 and 110 people each. The owner of Heartland Brewery and Houston Hall, Bloostein said the effect of the higher minimum wage on payroll across locations represents "an immense cost" to his business.

"We lost control of our largest controllable expense," he told CBS MoneyWatch. "So in order to live with that and stay in business, we're cutting hours."

Bloostein said he has scaled back on employee hours and no longer uses hosts and hostesses during lunch on light traffic days. Customers instead are greeted with a sign that reads, "Kindly select a table." He also staggers employees' start times. "These fewer hours add up to a lot of money in restaurants," he said.

Bloostein said he has increased menu prices, too. "So as a result [of the minimum wage hike], it will cost more to dine out," he said. "It's not great for labor, it's not great for the people who invest in or own restaurants, and it's not great for the public."

A New York City Hospitality Alliance survey of 574 restaurants showed that 75 percent of full-service restaurants reported plans to reduce employee hours this year in response to the latest mandated wage increase. Another 47 percent said they would eliminate jobs in 2019. Eighty-seven percent of respondents also said they would increase menu prices this year.

These types of cost-cutting moves coincide with a U.S. Labor Department report released last Friday showing full-service restaurants in December raised prices the most since 2011, to cover soaring labor and food costs.
Ginsburg Cancels Late-January Appearance As Skeptics Demand Proof-Of-Life

While her exact condition is unknown, "top cancer surgeons" told CNBC they expect the 85-year-old Justice to be back on the bench in less than six weeks after fracturing three ribs and undergoing surgery to remove two cancerous nodules from her left lung over a two-month span.

Ginsburg's January 29 appearance was announced on December 20 - one day before her lung surgery. She was released from the hospital four days later. On January 7, Chief Justice John Roberts said Ginsburg was "unable to be present doay," adding that she would still participate from home. A court spokesperson said earlier that day that Ginsburg would participate in cases "on the basis of briefs, filings and transcripts."

Weekend at Ruth's?

Ginsburg's absence from the bench - and now her late-January event cancellation, has stoked rumors over social media that the oldest Supreme Court Justice is actually dead, with doubters demanding proof-of-life under hashtags such as #WeekendAtRuths, a reference to the popular 1989 film Weekend At Bernie's.

Chris Hansen, From 'To Catch a Predator,' Arrested in Connecticut, Accused of Bouncing Checks

Chris Hansen, the former host of NBC’s “To Catch a Predator,” has been accused of bouncing checks and failing to pay for thousands of dollars worth of marketing material, according to police in Connecticut.

Stamford Police Sgt. Sean Scanlan confirms Hansen, 59, was charged Monday with issuing a bad check and for failing to pay $13,000 worth of marketing materials he received from a local vendor.

Scanlan says Hansen was released after signing a written promise to appear in court.

Police say Hansen agreed to make a statement at the Stamford police station, but never showed up.

It was not immediately clear if Hansen retained an attorney who could comment on the accusations.

News 4’s attempts to contact Hansen were unsuccessful.
