Deevin Jeran, an employee at Z Pizza in Seattle, was stoked to get a
raise, from $11 to $15 an hour as part of a new law that takes effect
today.
He was happy to get a raise, when Seattle’s minimum wage went up to $11
an hour at the beginning of the month.
“I definitely recognize that having more money is important,” he told
local TV station Q13-Fox, “especially in a city as expensive as this
one.”
But that didn't last long. "Unfortunately, he’ll only enjoy that bigger
paycheck for a few more months. In August, his boss is shutting down Z
Pizza and putting him and his 11 co-workers out of work," the station
reported.
Today, across the country, workers are striking. Some 21,000 AT&T
Wireless workers were expected to walk off the job, WZVN reports. And the
protests occurred around the world as workers demanded better pay and
better working conditions, ABC reported.
But for Jeran, things are going to get worse, RedAlertPolitics reports.
"[Z Pizza] owner Ritu Shah Burnham said she just can’t afford the city’s
mandated wage hikes.
“I’ve let one person go since April 1, I’ve cut hours since April 1, I’ve
taken them myself because I don’t pay myself,” she told Q13. “I’ve also
raised my prices a little bit, there’s no other way to do it.”
Small businesses in Seattle have up to six more years to phase in the new
$15 an hour minimum wage, but even though she only has 12 employees, Z
Pizza counts as part of a “large business franchise.” As a result, she is
on a sped up timeline to implement the full raise.
“I know that I would have stayed here if I had 7 years, just like
everyone else, if I had an even playing field,” she said. “The
discrimination I’m feeling right now against my small business makes me
not want to stay and do anything in Seattle.”
The organization that pushed for the higher minimum wage, 15 Now Seattle,
wouldn’t comment directly on the closing to Q13 and didn’t offer any sign
of sympathy.
“Restaurants open and close all the time, for various reasons,” Director
Jess Spear said.
May Day began in the late 19th century, sharing the date with the
International Workers' Day, set up by Socialists and Communists. The goal
was noble: To secure the eight-hour work day and improve horrific
conditions in some factories. But the day has morphed into unions in
America demanding ever-increasing wages for workers. That, in turn, has
led to a move to raise minimum wages to much higher levels.
But it hasn't helped Jeran.
Jeran wonders about all the rallies that were supposed to be about making
life better for people like him.
“If that's the truth, I don't think that's very apparent. People like me
are finding themselves in a tougher situation than ever.”
Shah Burnham is concerned about where her employees will end up when she
does close.
“I absolutely am terrified for them. I have no idea where they're going
to find jobs, because if I’m cutting hours, I imagine everyone is across
the board.”

Death by Democrats, but hey, who cares, it's "Victims of
Communism/Socialism Day," so rejoice, suckers.
The dumb SOB will no doubt continue to vote democrat because of
the $15 that cost him his job.

Is more than you are worth.
11 years ago, while posting under this current nym, Rudy Canoza, we had a
discussion about a revised marketing claim concerning grass-fed beef from
USDA. You claimed that you had written to and received a reply from
William T.
Sessions, Associate Deputy Administrator, Livestock and Seed Program. Here
below is the post you wrote using the nym Rudy Canoza containing your
correspondence with William Sessions.

[start- Jon to me]
Eat shit and bark at the moon, Dreck - the proposed
standard has NOT been adopted. I wrote to William
Sessions, the associate deputy administrator (how's
that for a title) at the Livestock and Seed Program at
USDA that is in charge of writing the standard for the
"meat marketing claims"; his name, title and e-mail
address are at a web page whose URL I gave yesterday,
http://www.fass.org/fasstrack/news_item.asp?news_id=1152

Here's his reply:

From: "Sessions, William" <***@usda.gov>
To: <jonball@[...]>
Mr. Ball: Thanks for your message. The marketing claim
standards are still under review by USDA. Accordingly, the
standards have not been published in a final form for use. I
hope this information is helpful.
Please let me know if further information is needed.
Thanks,
William T. Sessions
Associate Deputy Administrator
Livestock and Seed Program

Subject: 2003 proposed standards for meat marketing claims

I have read about the proposed standards, and I've seen
many of the public comments sent to USDA. I cannot find
anything to indicate if the standards were adopted.
Were the standards as proposed in 2003 adopted?

Thanks in advance.

Deevin Jeran, an employee at Z Pizza in Seattle, was stoked to get a
raise, from $11 to $15 an hour as part of a new law that takes effect
today.
He was happy to get a raise, when Seattle's minimum wage went up to
$11
an hour at the beginning of the month.
"I definitely recognize that having more money is important," he told
local TV station Q13-Fox, "especially in a city as expensive as this
one."
But that didn't last long. "Unfortunately, he'll only enjoy that
bigger
paycheck for a few more months. In August, his boss is shutting down Z
Pizza and putting him and his 11 co-workers out of work," the station
reported.
Today, across the country, workers are striking. Some 21,000 AT&T
Wireless workers were expected to walk off the job, WZVN reports.
And
the
protests occurred around the world as workers demanded better pay and
better working conditions, ABC reported.
But for Jeran, things are going to get worse, RedAlertPolitics reports.
"[Z Pizza] owner Ritu Shah Burnham said she just can't afford the city's
mandated wage hikes.
"I've let one person go since April 1, I've cut hours since April 1, I've
taken them myself because I don't pay myself," she told Q13. "I've
also
raised my prices a little bit, there's no other way to do it."
Small businesses in Seattle have up to six more years to phase in
the
new
$15 an hour minimum wage, but even though she only has 12 employees, Z
Pizza counts as part of a "large business franchise." As a result, she
is
on a sped up timeline to implement the full raise.
"I know that I would have stayed here if I had 7 years, just like
everyone else, if I had an even playing field," she said. "The
discrimination I'm feeling right now against my small business makes
me
not want to stay and do anything in Seattle."
The organization that pushed for the higher minimum wage, 15 Now Seattle,
wouldn't comment directly on the closing to Q13 and didn't offer any
sign
of sympathy.
"Restaurants open and close all the time, for various reasons,"
Director
Jess Spear said.
May Day began in the late 19th century, sharing the date with the
International Workers' Day, set up by Socialists and Communists. The goal
was noble: To secure the eight-hour work day and improve horrific
conditions in some factories. But the day has morphed into unions in
America demanding ever-increasing wages for workers. That, in turn, has
led to a move to raise minimum wages to much higher levels.
But it hasn't helped Jeran.
Jeran wonders about all the rallies that were supposed to be about making
life better for people like him.
"If that's the truth, I don't think that's very apparent. People like
me
are finding themselves in a tougher situation than ever."
Shah Burnham is concerned about where her employees will end up when she
does close.
"I absolutely am terrified for them. I have no idea where they're
going
to find jobs, because if I'm cutting hours, I imagine everyone is
across
the board."

Death by Democrats, but hey, who cares, it's "Victims of
Communism/Socialism Day," so rejoice, suckers.
The dumb SOB will no doubt continue to vote democrat because of
the $15 that cost him his job.
What horseshit. His job was going away no matter what. If the owner wasn't
even paying herself, she wasn't going to be in business long in the first
place.
You have evidence she wasn't 'paying herself' before the huge wage
increase?
He neither has facts nor evidence
Evidence his own cite. She was operating on a margin that wouldn't have
lasted 6 months in the first place.
Your opinion means nothing. Find some facts and get back to us.
Read the fucking article. She wasn't paying herself.

I haven't seen anyone as threatened by facts as you in a long time.

She is now operating on such a margin, in an attempt to balance her
prices (which directly influence customers and therefore income), her
wish to do as well as she can for her employees, and the sudden
massive increase in her costs forced upon her by ignorant politicians.

"Huge wage increase" -- what a joke.
$11 to $15 is a 36% increase. That is huge, especially when it
requires no concomitant increase in productivity.

Your abilities at displaying empathy are even lower than those of a
bottom-feeding bivalve.

You have evidence she wasn't 'paying herself'
Yeah, in the cite up above dumbfuck.
Beforehand, Clammikins.
Sorry, Spammy -- that would involve me taking you seriously.
But anyone can read the article. Anyone who can read, that is -- which
unsurprisingly seems to leave you out.
You're a shitbag, Clave.
11 years ago, while posting under this current nym, Rudy Canoza, we had a
discussion about a revised marketing claim concerning grass-fed beef from
USDA. You claimed that you had written to and received a reply from
William T.
Sessions, Associate Deputy Administrator, Livestock and Seed Program. Here
below is the post you wrote using the nym Rudy Canoza containing your
correspondence with William Sessions.

[start- Jon to me]
Eat shit and bark at the moon, Dreck - the proposed
standard has NOT been adopted. I wrote to William
Sessions, the associate deputy administrator (how's
that for a title) at the Livestock and Seed Program at
USDA that is in charge of writing the standard for the
"meat marketing claims"; his name, title and e-mail
address are at a web page whose URL I gave yesterday,
http://www.fass.org/fasstrack/news_item.asp?news_id=1152

Here's his reply:

From: "Sessions, William" <***@usda.gov>
To: <jonball@[...]>
Mr. Ball: Thanks for your message. The marketing claim
standards are still under review by USDA. Accordingly, the
standards have not been published in a final form for use. I
hope this information is helpful.
Please let me know if further information is needed.
Thanks,
William T. Sessions
Associate Deputy Administrator
Livestock and Seed Program

-----Original Message-----
From: jonball@[...]
Sent: Wednesday, September 07, 2005 11:38 AM
To: Sessions, William
Subject: 2003 proposed standards for meat marketing claims

I have read about the proposed standards, and I've seen
many of the public comments sent to USDA. I cannot find
anything to indicate if the standards were adopted.
Were the standards as proposed in 2003 adopted?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah you will. You're an old man who hasn't looked after himself. I wouldn't
go around goading people if I was as small and as puny as you are, liar Jon.
You ought to be very careful.

You certainly have no means to hasten my death.
Are you really serious, weed? you're just over 5 feet tall and 64 years old.
You'll be 65 on December 2nd. You've got to stop threatening people and
goading them to come after you. You're pathetic.

Deevin Jeran, an employee at Z Pizza in Seattle, was stoked to get a
raise, from $11 to $15 an hour as part of a new law that takes effect
today.
He was happy to get a raise, when Seattle's minimum wage went up to
$11
an hour at the beginning of the month.
"I definitely recognize that having more money is important," he told
local TV station Q13-Fox, "especially in a city as expensive as this
one."
But that didn't last long. "Unfortunately, he'll only enjoy that
bigger
paycheck for a few more months. In August, his boss is shutting down
Z
Pizza and putting him and his 11 co-workers out of work," the station
reported.
Today, across the country, workers are striking. Some 21,000 AT&T
Wireless workers were expected to walk off the job, WZVN reports. And
the
protests occurred around the world as workers demanded better pay and
better working conditions, ABC reported.
But for Jeran, things are going to get worse, RedAlertPolitics
reports.
"[Z Pizza] owner Ritu Shah Burnham said she just can't afford the
city's
mandated wage hikes.
"I've let one person go since April 1, I've cut hours since April 1,
I've
taken them myself because I don't pay myself," she told Q13. "I've
also
raised my prices a little bit, there's no other way to do it."
Small businesses in Seattle have up to six more years to phase in the
new
$15 an hour minimum wage, but even though she only has 12 employees,
Z
Pizza counts as part of a "large business franchise." As a result,
she is
on a sped up timeline to implement the full raise.
"I know that I would have stayed here if I had 7 years, just like
everyone else, if I had an even playing field," she said. "The
discrimination I'm feeling right now against my small business makes
me
not want to stay and do anything in Seattle."

You have evidence she wasn't 'paying herself' before the huge wage
increase?
He neither has facts nor evidence
Evidence his own cite. She was operating on a margin that wouldn't have
lasted 6 months in the first place.
"Huge wage increase" -- what a joke.
OMFG -- I just realized that you clowns don't even read your own propaganda.
