Re: “Durham Commissioners Back $15 Minimum Wage and Paid Parental Leave

Business likes to scream about paying $15 hr.....But if they cant afford to pay their employees decent wages then they dont belong in business.....Most just hate having to pay anything...

You say "Dickie Thompson, who unsuccessfully motioned to adopt the rules." but what were the other votes?

Re: “The Morning Roundup: A Charlotte Update, Trump Denied in Greensboro, and Radio Drama in Fayetteville

So the leadership at ECU is more concerned about money and publicity? It became an issue when ESPN radio in Fayetteville said they will not carry our game? ECU has the MOST loyal fans of any in NC. That University officials will punish students for their right to protest QUIETLY is disheartening. Anita Daniels, ECU class of '84.

Re: “Durham Commissioners Back $15 Minimum Wage and Paid Parental Leave

Ronald, you're obviously confused about what this article about (did you actually read it?). This only affects people who work directly for Durham County. In fact, everyone's favorite bill - HB2 - specifically outlawed counties and municipalities from forcing a minimum wage different from the state's onto companies. Not only is the county a not-for-profit entity, but this is analogous to a board of directors of a company discussing wages at their own company. Take your rant somewhere else.

Re: “Durham Commissioners Back $15 Minimum Wage and Paid Parental Leave

This simply shows how totally ignorant these commissioners are. That they know little about politics is overshadowed by their complete lack of knowledge about economics and how free enterprise works! Businesses work for a profit. By raising the nearly doubling the minimum wage, you are forcing businesses to cut corners to keep their profit margin. If they cannot make a profit, why should they stay in business?

This drastic increase in wages will cause the very employees whom the commissioners intend to help greater hardships. There hours will be cut and, when that doesn’t work (and it will not) to save the “profit-margin”, some will be laid off. Please tell me, commissioners, how does raising ones wages, to the point that the employer can no longer afford to employ these minimum waged employees, help them?

Re: “The Morning Roundup: A Charlotte Update, Trump Denied in Greensboro, and Radio Drama in Fayetteville

Coldest regards to radio un-free WFAY and to administration of ECU. Reading the riot act to band members and a refusal to broadcast a football game over a protest by some students makes me wonder why those self evident truths I learned about are not as important as knowing that those folks in "charge" remain true to the evils of censorship. Protests in many forms are as patriotic as any song,. as American as any oath and as topical as any holiday celebrating freedom. For those uneducated, like myself, please send me a list of rules to follow beyond those written by the rich hyper-educated elitist slave owner signers of our Constitution. Glenn Maughan.

Re: “Korean Fried Chicken and More at Durham's M Kokko by Chef Michael Lee

Hey ZZ, stop trolling. Allie wasn't commissioned for this pic -- she was eating lunch at this restaurant & took a picture of her lunch. She posted it on Instagram, and the Indy thought it looked cool.

BTW, you can check out her portfolio at www.alliemullin.com, she's the real deal.

Re: “Korean Fried Chicken and More at Durham's M Kokko by Chef Michael Lee

Sounds great....but the picture here by Allie Mullin, WTH?!?!!?
Why is the empty spot on the plate facing forward? It makes the plate look empty!
Why is the ketchup on the plate in the front, are they known for their ketchup in a ramkin or are we featuring the sandwich and side??
Why do you have the bun with the thumb print facing forward?? You could have simply rotated the bun so the hole doesn't show!
What a sloppy picture, take some pride in your work Allie because the one your provided here makes the plate look terrible!

Re: “Wake County Sheriff: Parents Should Be Notified When a Transgender Student Uses the Bathroom, Like Head Lice

Transgender students who have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria deserve to have their medical privacy intact.

Donnie Harrison does not respond kindly. It's because he is not a kind man. Many people know this.He knows it has to do with HB2. He prefers not to tell the truth.

Re: “Wake County Sheriff: Parents Should Be Notified When a Transgender Student Uses the Bathroom, Like Head Lice

A consistent policy is a good thing. School systems should consider using the South Park method of three restrooms: "Boys", "Girls", and "Other", where "Other" is the creepy transphobic people who sexualize children and restrooms.

Maybe we should move to down under and start biting there, so when he scratch himself there, he remembers his words comparing us with those critters!
