I don't know where you're getting all of that from. I'm asking who's in charge of your life? Is it your employer? Does your employer tell you where to buy things?
I'm actually not against raising the minimum wage. But I think it's ultimately useless. You could raise it to $50/hr but the only thing that would change is the number applied. Minimum wage is still minimum wage.
I would rather people take charge of their own lives than wait for the government to do it for them. The government is helpful but it doesn't magically solve each individual's problems.
Or well, I guess it's technically bottled already
Yeah, as a viewer it just gets kinda old seeing so many singers on a handful of shows.
Bacon and toast or cinnamon roll.
You're already paying for the habits of a 300lb guy with your premiums. I didn't say it should be nationalized either (while I'm not necessarily against it). Before health insurance became a big thing, doctors used to charge patients for the cost of the procedure plus a little extra. It was a reasonable system. We pay so much now because it's expected that insurance will cover it. Health insurance companies only act as a third party to pass around enormous costs to people who don't deserve to foot the entire bill.
Sounds like the real problem are the insurance companies.
I set up Alexa in my parent's house because they wanted one. Not sure I'm ready for one in my house yet.
Good. Then I don't have to make a grocery list.
We have drivers who run a dedicated line for YRC. One of them posted in our Facebook group that during their pretrip to connect to the YRC doubles, they found that a dolly safety chain had been attached to a 5th wheel release handle. For those who don't know: Pulling the 5th wheel release handle while going down the road would release the trailer from the truck. At the very least, a dropped trailer would be instant termination for the driver. At the very worst, an out of control trailer can end people's lives.
Some members of our upper management were able to see the post and get more information from our driver so they could follow up with YRC. It seems it was hooked there to set the driver up for failure.
Why don't they take it out on their company then? Why take it out on an unsuspecting driver?
In defense of the company, with the way freight moves around the country, it's not always possible to hire new associates right away to cover the workload. And it wouldn't really be practical if it's just a short spike in freight.
Did you overlook the bus part? Also, one-way plane tickets can be very cheap. Money from families up north can be sent south to fund tickets. Think outside of the wall for a second or two.
But what I'm saying is that we all have a limit to the amount of security we're willing to put in our homes. We determine this limit by the perceived risk of crime and how much we're willing to spend and add inconvenience to our lives. A bunker surrounded by razor wire would undoubtedly be safer than a standard suburban house, but most people, even those in high crime areas, aren't living in their own personal bunkers.
We do already have a wall at the border.
The problem with the wall is that it's useless. Most illegal immigrants come here legally by plane or bus and simply over stay their visas. A wall will not stop that.
As for my house, of course I have a lock on my door. But if a thief's motivation to get into my house is stronger than my will to pay excessive amounts of money to heighten my false sense of security, the thief will find a way.
