Dozens take part in ‘Fight for 15’ protest in Gert Town

In New Orleans, protesters stormed down Carrollton Avenue at dawn and right into a McDonald’s restaurant as they continue to demand change when it comes to minimum wages in the city, state and nation.

“We have no state minimum wage in Louisiana, but most people are paid the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Even $15 an hour, what folks are asking for, still gets you to only $31,000 a year,” said Erika Zucker, with Workplace Justice Project at the Loyola Law Center

  1. The Tory are in a definitely winning scenario. If the referendum is defeated, they’ll be credited for keeping the United Kingdom united. If the referendum is carried, they’ll be a lot closer to an outright majority since many of Labour’s and Libdems’ safe seats are in Scotland. What I found difficult to understand is the position of the LibDems (their Michael Moore is the Secretary of State for Scotland). They got nothing to win in this deal, although it’s in line with their core value to maximise civil rights and liberties.

  2. Oh boy! It’s like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, just like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pictures to drive the message home a bit, besides that, this is informative blog. A outstanding read. I’ll definitely return again.

  3. · Oh minette, c’est si triste de te lire et ça me révolte ! Faire du mal à une petite bête consciemment c’est impardonnable.Mais lire la souffrance de ton Pépino, c’est trop dur Je suis désolée pour toi, vraiment.Mais accueillons Lilla avec plein d’amour ! Elle ne le remplacera pas, mais elle se créera une petite place aussi

  4. Se pare ca aveam aceleasi afinitati in materie de alegeri…si eu tot Campeanu am ales atunci. Imi amintesc de sloganul FSN-istilor : Nu il votati pe Ratiu ca nu a mancat salam cu soia…Sau reprosul fiindca poarta papion nu cravata…Cat de indoctrinati erau unii in a-l preaslavi pe Iliescu…Si cate femei il iubeau pe ,,frumosul” Petre Roman.

  5. June 17, 2011 btw, forgot to mention, I don’t know when they came out with the on page optimization part, but now their tool includes it (it looks like they didn’t when you wrote this). it basically scans your site for a bunch of on-page criteria (i think like 12 criteria including title tag, url, copy, etc).

  6. Good to know waiting wasn’t just my trial when working at R-News. Glad you are discovering better ways to spend your wait time than my old habit of Solitaire. I’m working on a new project – lots of interviews and research in my future. I’ll let you, et al, know more as details get worked out.

  7. We did this to ourselves. After vowing not to support the RINOs we did just that. Or we nominated such extremists as Akins that had no chance of winning.We pledged to nominate a Conservative in the Primaries but voted for the Party nominee. Or allowed that idiot Ron Paul a chance at the debates. We allowed a man like Herman Cain to be railroaded by a known shyster.We are to blame for this disaster. And only we can correct the mistake.Stock up on food, ammo, guns….it is going to be a bumpy ride.

  8. What kind of bugs me, again, is that no adult in either this case or the one in Colorado was able to get to the perp and *physically* get him down and at least have a few seconds for others to pile on, as has occurred in a couple of the airplane hijackings. Not to denigrate for one second the struggle that they must have made and the sheer courage that it took. It just bugs me.  OFD

  9. стойте стойка и будьте достойны мечты и пусть идёт эта стройка… проблем воздвигая стены, что разрушим мы СИЛОЙ ВОЛИ И ВЕРЫ !!!

  10. Ellja,kennst du die gute alte Persianer-Torte nicht? Die mit Schokolade, Butter, Nüssen und 12 Eiern? ein Albtraum für Ernhährungsberater, ein Traum für Schleckermäuler!Sacher ist im Originalrezept zu fad, nur Rum, viel Marmelade (auch in der Mitte) und Schlag können sie retten.

  11. My grandchildren will believe manned spaceflight is science fiction. And when my generation passes there will be no one left with a living memory of it. The US and mankind generally is done with it for perhaps a hundred years or more as part of a general decline into witchcraft and stupidity. "A Canticle for Liebowitz" will wind up being a documentary.

  12. Thank you for this blog. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this blog into something thats eye opening and important. You clearly know so much about the subject, youve covered so many bases. Great stuff from this part of the internet. Again, thank you for this blog.”

  14. Mary, this shrimp dish looks so delicious, only the thought og that sauce over the rice make my mouth watering 🙂 Thanks for sharing such a nice recipe, for sure I'll make this for me and my husband (which also bought shrimp, but they only have one size at the small store we do groceries shopping :))

  15. i see war brewing with the ban against okada.Okada is the main means of transportation for most soldiers and police, now when a lastma arrest/ stops a soldier ,the soldiers would mobilize and beat all the lastma boys to plum, we would now have a crisis of uniform aganst uniform on our hands again.

  16. Richard – the same thing happened to me. I am a web designer who routinely does Blogger to WordPress transfers, and I have confirmed with the Google Support Team that the problem *was* in fact caused by this script. However, I was able to get my blog reviewed and restored and I hope you were able to do the same!As with any online content, everyone please use extreme caution – it IS possible that Google may not restore your blog so be sure you back up both your Blogger template and your content before making any changes.

  17. any aztec temple design elements in los angeles architecture?Certainly: Frank Lloyd Wright’s textile block houses.My first thought was: how many days until that high school’s signature tower is covered in spray paint? Does the architect realize whom he is building for?

  18. the oz navy are a bunch of gay wankers who would piss their pants at the sight of action…as for 23 which is now 27 we dont need hundreds of people behind us to feel powerful just a nice 1 out will do us…it just shows how cowardly you are buddy you aint shit by yourself slap yourself

  19. Don’t shrug off a coup that easily – if the Liberty League hadn’t picked the wrong general in 1934 to lead a military coup againt FDR, they probably would have succeeded.Instead, Butler reported them to Congress, who held hearing then immediately buried it “because the country couldn’t handle it.” (Sound familiar?)And why they chose Smedley Butler instead of MacArthur, Patton, or Eisenhower is still a mystery.

  22. "Estão fartos de falir", cara Lesma Morta. Olhe que eu acho que isso é mentira. Se não é, desafio-o a dar-me um exemplo que seja de um estabelecimento que tenha falido na zona. Se não conseguir fazê-lo vou ter que tomar a sua afirmação como uma mentira pura e simples.Permita-me ainda cumprimentá-lo pelo domínio semântico, lexical e ortográfico da língua portuguesa patente na sua resposta.

  23. Hi Friends,Is that valuable to do Part-time Master of Science – Technology Program (mechanical system design)from the Manipal University. I beleive they conduct week end classesIf not could you please say which colleges in Pune offer part time ME\\MS programs for Mechanical Engineering Design streamThanks in advance!Antony Benny M

  24. Fantastic input Jake.For my mileage, I feel like I have a pretty finite amount of influence that I get to exert, and I don’t want to let disagreement about peripheral issues (such as governance) preclude my ability to exert influence on the eternal.The flip side, however, is that I don’t get to weigh in on some of the issues that I do feel passionately about. I will have to continue thinking about this and developing my level of engagement. This is definitely a moving target for me.

  25. perseusApril 1, 2012Problemele patologice fac exceptie. Imaginatia trebuie supusa testului realitatii prin ratiune. Sa nu uitam totusi ca in timpul in care a trait EGW, ea nu era decat unul dintre auto-proclamatii profeti.VN:F [1.9.21_1169]please wait…

  26. Yes, I am willing to play full out. As for my story of being in the depths, let’s just say without going into too much detail that a failed relationship fails for a reason and sometimes, they are not meant to be restored. I’ve discovered some amazing things about myself in the process. One being my worth does not come from someone’s screwed up thoughts about me and I can choose to reject thoughts and people that are meant to constantly bring me down. I say it a lot, and I mean it…Onward and Upward. No looking back or living in the past. Living in the moment IS the best living I know.

  27. Thank you for all your hard work on this web site. Debby enjoys doing internet research and it is easy to understand why. My partner and i hear all concerning the powerful method you present insightful things by means of this web blog and cause contribution from some others on that concern so our own daughter is without a doubt discovering a whole lot. Take pleasure in the rest of the new year. Your conducting a remarkable job.

  28. JayIn the spirit of public education, we both win prizes. What the TPA does is control the cost of government (was “givernment d Freudian slip?)to the taxpayers and thereby “incenting” (I hate that word; incentive is a noun) government to control its costs.

Werkzeuge, mit denen er arbeitet, ? Danke !

  31. Just throwing in my complaint! We have had rich snippets installed for almost two months and still not included in the recipe search results. Our site is recipetips.com and we think everyone should be included in this. Google seems to have hand-picked only a few of the larger sites. The rich snippets tested fine with the rich snippet testing tool. I haven't seen any response from Google on this.

  32. Natural haver jogadores em fora de forma……..Insua, pela sua fisionomia, o tipo é um bocadinho para o forte, logo, necessita de mais tempo pra chegar a uma forma razoavelo Jeffren hoje gostei, a forma começa a aparecer, euquanto teve pernas, mostrou algumas coisitas, falta mesmo essa forma chegar pra vermos o Jeffren q tanto ansiamos ( isto se os dentes ja estiverem em condiçoes )

  33. This truly touches my interest deeply. I by no means had visited a type of weblog which has the description of your website. The internet style actually say’s the whole topic of the blogger. Thanks for sharing this impressing post.VA:F [1.9.17_1161]please wait…

  34.   您好,已在 IE7 測試精簡版,也是需要保存 mhtml 才能使用。我已刪除 IE7 的所有 Cache 做測試、IE7 的設定是預設的、也沒有感染過任何的病毒、沒有增加過任何的 Add-ons。因我本身用 Firefox。  將檔案移去其他的子目錄後,就不能使用。

  35. Did you consider that the reoccurring back problem could come when you were under stress. Though it might be something you think you want to do, sometimes I wonder if our bodies are speaking up and saying, forget about it, you’re not doing that.I thought someone should say this. You have to be true to yourself and we will wait.

  36. I just love your artwork. I would be proud to hang this beautiful piece in my home. My favorite thing to reuse is junk mail. I keep envelopes that have interesting “insides”. They can be used to as backgrounds or can be punched to make some cute flowers or whatever. Thanks for the chance to win this great stamp art.

  38. , I do think it’s important to have your own space. We have the luxury of 5 rooms on the second floor, so in addition to bedrooms, we each have our own non-sleeping rooms. I have a room with books, an easel for painting, a guitar I’m going to teach myself to play one day, heirloom trunks full of my treasures and mementos that is *my* space. He’s got a room that is disgrace IMO with all kinds of stuff strewn about- tools, old camping gear, clothes that may or may not fit. I just shut the door so I don’t have to look at it, I don’t clean it, and he stays out of mine.

  40. The root of your writing whilst sounding agreeable initially, did not settle well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while.
