I have always felt servers should at least be paid minimum wage. TIPS should never have become 'mandatory' for a server to make enough to survive on. Charge me for the food, and if the service warrants it, I will tip.
Just like Dallas, modest and a bud's bud. He forgot to mention how fantastic his DBO's (Dallas Baker Originals) are!!
Is this more in the city or rural/outlying areas of charleston? How would you get good "city servers" out there?
Is the author saying white folks need to hang out with black folks more often? How about a River Dogs game, or a high school sports event? The 4th of July Celebration at Riverfront Park in North Charleston is an event that has all ethnicities cheek to jowl having a grand time together. How about the Coastal Carolina Fair? (Probably too low brow for the author) or the Holiday Parade down King Street? Everyone comes out and everyone comes together for these events. I don't get the author's point. A bit preachy and a bit elitist IMHO.
So well deserved. Bravo youngblood.
Thank you for this! As one of those women wearing a sexy/slutty costume, the highlight of my night was when a guy on the dance floor treated me with respect (when my skirt started to ride up at one point he even tugged it down for me). I dress that way because on the rare occasions that I go out I love my body and the way it feels when other people appreciate my looks, plus I get overheated really quickly when I dance if I cover up more.
I know that some people are going to judge me for my outfit, but the worst is the guys who think it is OK to touch me wherever they want. If someone grabs my chest or puts their hand up my skirt, I walk away (and every time I go out, at least one guy will try this). The man who treated me with respect? He got my number.
But restaurant owners are not paying the correct amount with these skeleton crews. Law states that servers to be paid 2.13 hour while serving. If doing other duties they must pay true minimum wage of 7.50 I believe. But owners are saying this is fill work. It is not and still many employees are doing it because employers say so. There really is no resason not to pay an actual fair wage. I know friends of mine who own restaurants in other parts of the country pay 15 or more per hour, they have removed the tips from being accepted at their restaurants. Or some still use tips and pay a 10 or 12 dollar wage plus tips. They are making money and have less food waste, theft, and happy employees
This makes sense. Roof is a white man. His mental competency must be called into question. If he had been another skin color or non-Christian religion, he would just simply be a cut and dry terrorist.
There is no legitimate benefit to killing this person, or anyone convicted of any crime. We get it wrong too often (I think Roof is guilty), it is too costly, and it serves as no deterrent.
Looking forward to the mass exodus from Hollywood to Canada
"Don't worry artrogue, you will have at least four and probably eight years to call for her impeachment."
Your usual level of accuracy here. Consistency means a lot, though, and your record is solid there.
Congratulations on voting for more taxes to fund projects that the city cannot afford to maintain. Excellent work.
Leave it to the Democrats to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory on the national level. I wish I could say it's surprising but they are very good at it.
Republicans: Congratulations on your victories and strong voter turnout. You guys won everything, so...you realize you actually have to govern now right? No more boogeymen, no more liberal media bias, no more yelling platitudes. You have to actually get shit done for this betterment of this country. Good luck.
I am disgusted with Folly and Main Roads continually being bypassed for improvements, including the completion of I-526, while the rest of the county gets their pet projects built. NO to the referendum and bond!
ALL LIVES MATTER. More importantly, VETERAN'S LIVES MATTER!
Stop the divide.
Wear what you want because it is your Freedom of Expression.
Wearing red is mine.
And as for comparing the movement to Medgar Evaers and others, if you lived through that movement as I did, you would compare BLM to the Black Panthers rather than Evers, et al. They use the same tactics as Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, not Evers or the Moores. Newton's ideas were "watchdogging" the Police and heavy manipulation of a sympathetic media, sound familiar?
I'd like to see the picture
Ima, the odds are very high.
Thank you Rev. Rutledge. You're a role model, a man of courage and grace. I too will be wearing my #BlackLivesMatter shirt to the polls tomorrow. I too am never prouder than when I think of those who fought to expand rights. I am hopeful that we can learn again in our country how to disagree without violence or name calling, that we can disagree respectfully. This election has been a difficult experience.
So you're going to wear a Black Lives Matter shirt to your polling place and I'm wearing Pink Floyd. How much more of a difference will you make? What are the odds that you'll show a real courage of conviction and wear it where it will really make a point... say, maybe, your pulpit.
