Re: “$12/hr

Yes, Jerry spelled "curmudgeon correctly", I misread it!

Re: “$12/hr

Hmm, A very biased article. I am no "anti-fair wage curmedgeon (sic)" I just think an increased minimum wage needs to apply to the whole county with a phase-in period. To characterize anyone who is not on board with Measure R this way, as Jerry does above, is missing the mark.
There are plenty of business owners this would affect that are not the fat cats--"local wealthy folks"--they are made out to be. And how are the non-profits going to make up the shortfall between meeting an increased payroll and their limited funding? Charge their clients, often on fixed incomes, more? Reduce services? Simple economics apply, and I don't see how they can maintain the same level of services.
The no on R folks may have gotten their campaign signs elsewhere, Jerry, but have you noticed that all their print material is printed locally and uses soy-based ink?
And hey people, quit taking the No on R signs down every night. I am a long-term activist and can tell you this is not some great act of civil disobedience against the big boxes and wealthy--it is disrespectful as hell. You may not agree with them, but everyone has a right to post the signs they want.
