Minimum Wage, OT Rules Apply to Home Health Workers, Court Rules
Fri Aug 21, 2015
Those working to take care of the elderly need to make a decent wage because it is a very trying job. The burnout must be enormous. Perhaps a higher standard of workers will be encouraged to take these jobs. BTW, this is true of childcare as well.

In reply to: MoreJustice #7.1The Swiss also pay 30 percent of their healthcare costs. Also if you want to live there you can't unless you marry a Swiss, work there, or somebody in your family is Swiss. Also bring your checkbook. To get residency is very expensive.

Sun May 24, 2015
Employers hire when that new hire can pay for itself. So let us say you start a bake shop. At first you do all the work. When exhaustion takes over because demand is increasing, another human is hired and thus the profit is shared. We started with 1 employee. We now have 30. We had no choice.

In reply to: MLNW-1795048 #1.21 invading Afghanistan to take out the camps, was the right decision. However nation building by both Bush and Obama is futile. Invading Iraq to take out a dictator was wrong no matter the intentions. Bush was naive again to think democracy was possible.

In reply to: Janeyre #1.5 I live in an Amish community. You can interact with them all you want. I know people that drive for them. They aren't requesting a darn thing from society including healthcare. If their house burns down the community builds another.

It seems many working at NBC, knew Brian embellished. They just rolled their eyes. Did they know he was lying? My goodness they are in the news business. For heaven sakes check the facts. Apparently Brokaw disliked him.

Fri Oct 24, 2014
In reply to: allens #1 It seems that fever comes on quickly with little warning. I assume these workers took every precaution, and yet are getting Ebola. How? Therefore it would seem those returning from treating Ebola, need to be quarantined.
