Hundreds of teachers show up at Statehouse to protest plan to repeal teacher tenure

All of you need to pay attention to what government and the POS politicians are doing to you and america. Just this past week my spouse that worked for 27+ years with a spotless work record was " fired at will" for no given reason. No protection what so ever. Plus you all are missing the point, the pay is the issue here, he wants you to be distracted on the root issue. The root issues is to get rid of tenure so he / they can fire "at will" with no reason. Thats why Browny signed the bill , to get rid of tenure. Corporate and heads of businesses do not answer to anyone. They can flush someones carrer via "at will discharge" . It's cases like this that show examples of how your rights are being erodded away by corporate and the POS politicans, so slow you don't even know the difference , until you wake up one day and it effects you . Sad day . I guess if they had a concious they would not sleep well at night, or woudl they HUmmmmm ...
What really needs to happen is for hundreds show up and vote these peolpe out of office. Well i guess all that would do would be to make room for the next generation of crooks , LOL ,,,

Opinion: McBudget is insult to working poor

The fact of the matter is that fast food profits are based on cheap labor, such as teens, high school kids. Now that the economy is in the trash, adults are now forced to work there to have a job, no matter what the pay is. If they did give a substantual raise to everyone, i seriously doubt if youwould pay the difference in a burege, say $7.00 or what ever for a big mac.. Corporate greed is alive and well in the u.s.a. and will take full advantage of the economy no matter who it steps on or what ever it takes. What do you have to say about that ..

City approves Menards store next to Home Depot at 31st and Iowa streets

All need to see this : All things in lawrence are KU driven, the student population = cheap wages for these businesses. If KU went away All would be in trouble. Growth is KU based, like it or not. Down town continues to shrink due to parking and accessability. I won't go down town because there is no parking. Fact. Now looking at the big picture, the swelling of new buiisnesses will do no good until the traffic system is rebuilt > Lawrence will flourish when the bypass is comepleted, if ever. Lawrence trasffic is horriffic. I try to avoid lawrence just because of the 23rd street / iowa street choke. It sucks. Until there is a complete bypass arond the entire town,, like topeka, kansas city ect. Growth will die and at best struggle. Lawrence leaders are trying to be a "Big boy town" and still hold hostage peolpe to down town business . Guess what down town will continue to shrink. Life is hard.. Get the bypass in and see things sprout... The leaders need to get better paying waged companies into town. Look at this, we don't need to ship our factories to mexio to get cheap wages, you are already bringing mexio here, berry plastics, amar, ect. sweat shop wages..
When these companys come in looking for tax abatements, oneof the stipulations should be a higher wage ( much higher than minimum). Then see what they do . You'd get more popular support and get real dollars into the community as opposed to a company coming in , reaping the tax break and then evaporiting like a fart in the wind when they expire after 5 or 10 years. It's all abnout money.
