Re: “Black Bean Co.

Although I love the BB Co., they tend to be inconsistent with ingredients, and for the price you pay for their food they truly need to stay on top of things and deliver what customers order. I love that James Islanders can get healthy food on the go that's super tasty. Best wraps on the island since the Daily Dose.

Re: “Bohemian Bull

There were 3 of the 7 of us there, and we were ordering carafes of mimosas. We weren't sipping on water, and even if we were, too bad. With a group of 7 people, people are going to order and you are going to make money. If a business wants my money, you can damn well seat me and those who are present with my party while we wait on the rest to arrive.

Re: “It will take more than goodwill to heal this state

"a prosperous workforce spreads and magnifies the prosperity."
So you agree - a prosperous workforce is an educated and valuable workforce, not a briefly (until prices quickly catch up) overpaid minimum wage workforce.

Re: “It will take more than goodwill to heal this state

Dear, trollslayer. They all said Henry Ford was mad when he chose to pay his workers $5 a day, enough so that they could buy the automobiles they were building. Result, a boom not a catastrophe. Similar wage improvements have had similar results.

There are many medicines that may have negative side effects but we weigh the risks and the benefits and, far more often than not, we take the medicine and enjoy the benefit. I draw that analogy before I mention unions but thanks to unions and unionization, we have all benefitted with a richer, freer and productive life and society.

We didn't get televisions and computers because of cheap labour on Asia, we got them from good wages in America. That corporate hogs seek to fatten their profits by milking the cow from both ends, doesn't change the reality that a prosperous workforce spreads and magnifies the prosperity.

Re: “It will take more than goodwill to heal this state

"figured a man of your rhetoric would be touting more investment in education."
Warwit has the right idea here; the way our of poverty is not minimum wage increases but rather education to learn a skill that is actually worth something.
It is unfortunate that both political parties now have to resort to bribery to keep their bases happy; the Republicans through ruinous tax cuts; the Democrats through price and inflation increasing minimum wage hikes.

Re: “Stegelin: The Trump primary

He lumped all South-of-the-Border immigrants as Mexicans, and said that only the criminals, rapists, murderers are coming. He did add a caveat that some might be good people. Might. Maybe he can run for British parliament next under the UKIP.

Re: “It will take more than goodwill to heal this state

Increase wages; increase prices. Who gets hurt most by the price increases? Why those who are just getting by to start with.
You know, those who just received the minimum wage hike.
There is a word for this: It's called inflation.

Re: “It will take more than goodwill to heal this state

I have 800 words to make my point and my space was used up. Yes, we need more investment in education -- a lot more. We need a progressive tax structure -- rather than the most regressive in the nation -- to pay for that education. But we also need a pay raise in this state, something that would give people a little hope, that would allow them a little breathing space, that would ease the stress and tension of just paying the rent and buying the groceries. People who are living from hand to mouth are angry, intolerant, easily frightened, easily manipulated. Of course, a lot of people like it that way, but it does not make for good governance or a good society.

Re: “It will take more than goodwill to heal this state

God, you had to go and ruin an otherwise well thought out article by all but suggesting a minimum wage increase as the ultimate solution. As if the rate at which low-skill labor is compensated really matters in the grand scheme of things. I figured a man of your rhetoric would be touting more investment in education. Although I realize that puts you in a predicament where you can't blame the white man for everything since a great deal of that must start at home.

I can get on board with most of your high-and-mighty brand of intellectual elitism in this piece. But "raise the minimum wage so black people can thrive" is about as superficial as it gets on CCP.

Re: “EMS chief placed on administrative leave

This is our county EMS Director talking about good people. I know them and have worked side by side with them over many years. One has been Paramedic of the Year at least three times in the past 15 years and is one of the best supervisors I've ever worked for. She works hard for the crews on the street. Everyone knows that goes against upper management at times. The other person had received compliments from over half of his patients. To be berated and humiliated publicly by your very own boss is unacceptable. EMS deserves leadership that supports its workers. Three of the people talked about are in retaliation for the county lawsuit for pay discrepancies. The Charleston County EMS administration has been unethical, retaliatory and down right mean to the people working the street for years now. It's time to put a stop to it.
