I object to the minimum wage being raised as well. It's not supposed to be enough to live "comfortably" off of. It's supposed to be a starting point in kids employment!
At one time is was until every floater and his mothers brother started to come here and expect to support 10 people off of it.

Nowadays the young adults can't even get a a job at a place like McDonalds because all the 40 year old Haitians took them!!!

Even 25 would be too long.

I think Jiffy-Lube is well within their rights as an employer, to establish and enforce a grooming standard for their employees. Apparently, they need to test for drug usage as well...
As a customer, I certainly wouldn't want some pothead working on my car.
Absolutely. Anyone under the influence should be working on autos or anything else. What they do on their own time, however, is their business.

I still cant believe that people still have to call us RASTAS dirty people or always have to associate marijuana with anything that we do that's like saying all priest are child molester or that all blacks are thieves or all whites are racist but yet let there daughters dress like sluts and there sons in women pants and listen to this so called music and watch t.v shows that promote the use of hard man made drugs violence and same sex relationship and then want to look down on us for having dreads or a big beard yes times have change but the word of god will always be so before you judge us take a good look at your self and what you have done to think that your so much better than your fellow brothers and sister that you place judgment on
