Hirtle is correct. It's better to endure more Christian ads than for atheists to remain invisible.
They are not providing all sorts of perks. Some of the back of the house workers are getting turkeys that they can't even cook on Thanksgiving since they'll be working morning to midnight. Give holiday pay like everyone else or stay closed.
If anyone else can be open, they should be allowed too. I'm all for them being open! Not fair to single them out. Plus, they're giving those who work all kinds of perks!
When Target beats you in worker treatment, you've got some explaining to do. Go on strike Capital Grille workers! They won't listen until you really stick it to them.
I go out to eat on Thanksgiving. It is pathetic that this article and City Council is making judgement on this and therefore me and my values. I eat Chinese food during Christmas. I go to movies during Easter. Tonight is Chanukah and many of you will be going to bars. Please don't instill what you perceive as family values on others. Please don't write articles criticizing Darden, especially when hundreds of Pittsburgh restaurants are open on Thanksgiving. Government, please don't instruct me on what I should be doing on Thanksgiving.
The service industry generally works nights, weekends, holidays, etc and that is okay and expected. Service workers and their expected schedules are no less important than people with 9-5 jobs.
The issue is that Darden does not give HOLIDAY PAY to its employees. No incentives, no time and a half. Most, if not all, retail outlets including Target receive holiday pay.
All I can say about this is that it is RIDICULOUS. Plenty of restaurants are open, retailers choose to open. If people do not like it, get a different job. I have known people who worked for the Capital Grille and they make a lot of money for being a server (if you can support a family of 4 on a servers income there and be able to buy an investment property on top of your mortgage, I think you are doing well there).
First off, some people prefer to go out to dinner for holiday meals. Why shouldn't some restaurants be open? Toll booth workers, hotel workers, movie theater employees, police and firefighters are not off on holidays. Why are they not being singled out by the City Council?
I think there are more important things to worry about.
Lynn you stayed true to your thoughts.
You took all the fun out of my heartache, but I did find out what I came here looking for. "Motherless" was haunting me. I even tried to warm her little toes.
"The same community that helped give the world Rick Santorum now gives benefits to gay and lesbian teachers." Love this line!
I would love to marry my wonderful partner of 25 years. Still can't in PA.
There is absolutely no reason for Democrats to balance budgets or run surpluses. As soon as they do, someone like George W. Bush will run for office telling everyone that the surplus is evidence that the government is taking too much of your money and we need to cut taxes to run deficits again.
Actually Kentucky was a part of Virginia which was a commonwealth and when it split they decided to KEEP the commonwealth instead of changing it. The naming these territories commonwealths instead of states was the sole responsibility of their representatives and naming them commonwealths was just to strengthen the idea of " by the people". Mr. Adams among others lived in a strong political time and wording in that constitution meant "everything" to those representatives.
"For Toomey, meanwhile, it was all about deficits, not health care. "I cannot support piling hundreds of billions of dollars of debt ... without even a sliver of reform to start putting our fiscal house in order," he said in a statement."
Toomey was spot on. Government cannot spend our future into oblivion. When do we start spending LESS than we bring in, and using the surplus for debt? When is our "pay off" date?
waaaa, waaaa, waaa
It is very obvious that many people have already made up their minds. You and many others are against the ability of the police to leave the city and none of you have considered the reasoning. On the one side the police have said that they are put under pressure to live in a neighborhood that they patrol and that is an excellent point, the concern over public schooling while also correct is very sad. Many people send their kids to private schools so they can avoid the deteriorating school systems in this city.
The idea that the police cannot connect with the community they serve without living in it is borderline. If the police did not patrol this city more than 40 hours a week (many do moonlighting) then this could make sense, but how many of us would want to live at our job?
If your boss told you you had live at work or lose your job, would you be happy with it? No, most people would feel like they were being mistreated, yet we ask city employees to stay at work all of the time. It could help the police to refresh themselves by having the opportunity to step away from work at the end of the day.
Great guy, Darryl, and entertaining as well.
Why does Stacy Smith make so many mistakes when reading the KDKA News?
So sad when the people who don't know the difference between a family and a government go out in public and admit it.
The City Paper is nothing but liberal garbage. So you think it's a good idea to increase the debt limit? Is this how you would run your own household? So if you spend more than you make, is the solution to get another credit card? Unbelievable.
I am a government employee who audits health insurance companies. I am affected by the shutdown. Even though it affects me personally, I'm glad there is at least an attempt to have some sort of financial improvement in this country.
