Re: “From Can to Can't

I see a fundraising opportunity for scout troops or schools. I like the idea of recycling, but the time and hassle for getting back a couple of bucks just ain't worth it. Set up a monthly pickup day, and I will put a bag of cans on the curb. Free nickels await!

Re: “I, Anonymous

I put dark glasses on my dog. We go everywhere. Anybody asks, I say I am his service person. Works.

Re: “Bare Minimum

If there is a mandate to double the starting wage in my business, here is a likely scenario. Those starting jobs are now more desirable. From the larger pile of applications on my desk, I will choose the candidates who have experience in my industry and are worth that higher wage. It is unlikely that I would hire a high school kid or other low skilled worker. Those folks, unfortunately, have been priced out of the market.

Municipalities considering higher starting wages should look carefully at the economic consequences of doing so. It is quite possible that the folks they are trying to help will have fewer chances to enter or even to remain in the job market.

Re: “A Request for Rush Hour Traffic Slowpokes

I am retired. Tailgate or be otherwise rude, I slow down. Must say I do enjoy reactions in the mirror. A favorite hobby!
