This is becoming the norm in much of the United States, thanks to unchecked, illegal immigration. Hopefully it will sink in people's heads, but it's probably too late. (Not a promo for Donald Trump).
Please, don't go back down that bogus, dead end road claiming to have an international shipping port with high paying jobs. Eureka was established in 1851. If it were profitable someone would have built a shipping operation by now. It's frustrating hearing high ranking local businessmen and elected officials to trying to pursue this. Remember when the harbor district was trying to borrow around $36 million for docks? Jeeze!
All of the above is for this area is the best policy. Aquaculture,wood products,tourism,breweries and who knows whats next. Continue pursuing the regional trail system too. More people with resources will want to set up shop here.
Never fix the problems of poverty,crime,corruption and horrible infrastructure in Mexico and Central America? Allow tens of millions of unchecked, un assimilated, undocumented immigrants to flood the United States until it becomes a replica of Mexico?
Preach slow growth, slow development, slow population growth, "Love your mother earth, don't become one", "Save the Earth", recycle, stop climate change, yet take a stance that flushes all that down the toilet?
Immigrants flee high crime, poverty, corruption and horrible infrastructure yet many of them demand that misery be allowed to follow them to the United States?
Good old karma at work. I would not accept that mildew, tsunami zone swampland responsibility for free. If I somehow inherited that property, the first thing I would do is trade it to Friends of the Dunes for a six pack of Tecate and a taco plate.
Any employee working in a skilled trade and supplying their own tools must be paid at least twice the minimum wage. The starting wage in Eureka would be $24/hr.
Also, any employee that worked their way up to $12/hr from $9/hr will not be happy when the new guy starts out at the same pay. Basically everyone will need to get a $3/hr raise to level the playing field.
How comfortable of a standard of living should one have with a job that one can learn in a few days versus a job that takes many years of on the job and school training?
I recommend watching "Oregon State Police video captures fatal freeway shooting" on youtube.com. I think it might help explain things.
I hope the peace officer gets his life back on track after he pays for his crimes.
Maybe the stupid masses of people can focus on improving THEMSELVES, rather than degrading people they don't even know.
