Excerpt from Connecticut’s Hourly $10.10 Minimum Wage a 1st

Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed legislation Thursday that will raise Connecticut’s minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by 2017, the highest rate for any state in the country.
Surrounded by state lawmakers and officials, Malloy appeared at a packed Café Beauregard, the same New Britain restaurant where he dined earlier this month with President Barack Obama and several other New England governors. The president was in town to advocate for a national $10.10 minimum wage.
After signing the bill, Malloy said it was one of his “proudest days as governor” and added: “It’s time to get people out of poverty.”

As happy as I am to hear this, I can’t be the only one thinking it doesn’t go far enough. A quick look at the facts.
The raise to $10.10 is being phased in over three years from the current $8.70, a 16% increase. From the beginning of 2014 to the end of 2017, inflation is projected to rise by 6.97% wiping out 44% of the benefit by the time it’s fully in effect.
For a two-income family in Hartford that pays an average of $1350 on rent, representing 27.8% of their monthly budget, the new minimum wage, were it enacted today, would still only provide 70% of the basic cost of living. And only 65% by 2017.
Clearly, more needs to be done.

$10.10 by 2017?
$10.10 currently averages at £6.27.
The UK’s current nationwide minimum wage is £6.50, which would be about $10.46
RIGHT NOW.
This announcement doesn’t mean shit.

Yup,but because of Americas industry which produces most of it’s own electronics, cars, day to day essentials, etc. products are cheaper there then here (because the UK imports a lot)
I heard our gas/petrol prices can cause Americans to cry
So Connecticut is earning more money to spend then people on the adult minimum wage in the UK atm. If you’re under the age of 21 in the UK, you’re earning £5.40 minimum or $8.69 I think

I hear you and understand that, but I think even with those things considered, it’s not enough money because their money is drained in other areas.
I hear America’s taxes are awful.

They are and I also hear that minimum wage in some states (because I think it varies) are much much less then others and some jobs survive on tips.
Also yeah in general taxes for north america are awful, that includes Canada

Tumblr, help? I’m being cyberbullied

A while ago, I used to work for this gentleman

He employed this guy, who got fired for being sadistic, abusive and even racist towards his gentleman employer.

Telling him to "Fuck off back to clog-land ya fucking blonde-haired, blue-eyed cunt"

 ….because my gentleman employer is dutch, and was telling him to please be quiet during filming.

Because I was employed as the guy (Dave) was fired - he now holds me responsible for his firing and has sent me death threats and turned his friends on me too.

I like editing videos as a hobby.

Two months after not interacting with him at all, the videos I have uploaded have suddenly been attacked by the dislike button.

I get a few likes and no dislikes in my videos normally.

Dave, and each of his 6 friends have gone through and disliked very single one of my videos and it is so hurtful, random and petty that I cannot comprehend it.

I would like a retaliation.

But I do not have 6 friends to help me… So I ask, Tumblr, will you help me?

And dislike this asshole.

However if you find my videos to be worthy of disliking then go ahead.
