re: NOLA's largest hotel workers unionize seeking better wages - Lima Whiskey
[quote]It is good news and about time![/quote] The market does a good job of pricing labor. It doesn’t take a lot of skill to bus a table, or scrub a toilet. That’s why these jobs don’t pay well. If individuals want better pay, they need to move up the ladder into management, or develop ski...

re: Who is middle class? Their income is lower than you might think - Lima Whiskey
I don’t think that definition is useful. If I’m writing policy, I don’t want to group middle income, but culturally working class families, with middle class families. ...

re: Good news for once: Over 5000 Israeli, Palestinian women march together for peace - Lima Whiskey
The Middle East is a resource poor region. Limited arable land. Limited water supplies. As a consequence, the local cultures have a zero sum attitude. There’s no such thing as a win win scenario. That would be suicide, to them. It’s either win everything, or lose everything....
