While the stakes for workers aren't clear, the benefits to Trader Joe's under the new arrangement are obvious. The implementation of Obamacare provides an opportune moment for the company to get in line with less generous competitors, and the savings the company finds in dropping coverage for part-timers will almost certainly outstrip the $500 it will give employees to defray what they end up paying on the exchanges.
An earlier memo to staff in May sounded a rosier note on health coverage. Bane said the company had "made a decision to make minimal and only necessary changes to your costs" for health care until Obamacare regulations were finalized next year. He also noted that the company would give workers a 10 percent discount on their monthly coverage for the second half of the year.
He did, however, inform workers that corporate contributions to employee retirement accounts would be drastically scaled back, by a third for some and two-thirds for others. Bane argued that the company's "very generous" contribution rates had been too high for the industry.
"Whole Foods and Costco (two public companies) make retirement plan contributions that are significantly less than Trader Joe's," he wrote.

I did not say the bikers were not patriotic but they are disrespectful of the districts ruling. It is only fitting that their disrespect be awarded with donations to the district's coffers by way of fines.
Islam is an international terrorist conspiracy and all Muslims must be treated with suspicion.

Of course, you lefties always favor a police state.

90 to 95 percent...and the UN said so...

"...A U.S. official cast doubt about how any deal to strip Mr. Assad of his weapons could be verified. "That is a problem," the official said. "How verifiable does it need to be? Getting 50% or 60% of the chemical weapons is not good enough. We would have to get 90% to 95%."

MOST...

"The U.N. ultimately succeeded in destroying most of Iraq's chemical weapons."

Nothing in my post was anti-semitism. Fetch-all-stupid has repeatedly posted about her holding up a protest sign identifying herself as a "petite, white, female hymie". Her words, not mine. She has also repeatedly said her allegiance is to Israel. If you have a problem with it, take it up with her.
Perhaps it is true that just as you n*****s claim the sole right to use the n-word, only Jews can use the word "Hymie."

The reich wingnuts have also conveniently forgotten Romney's position on Syria. Romney would "overturn the existing policy against sending arms to moderate elements of the Syrian opposition"... rejecting the idea that they would pass the weapons on to Al-Queda.

Further, Romney's position was ď...you donít allow Russia to determine how the U.S. pursues its interest in Syria and you donít allow Vladimir Putin to decide if youíre going to protect innocent people in Syria being killed in awful and horrific ways by a regime thatís going out the door.Ē

Yet, now, these wingnuts are applauding Putin.

The bikers aren't disrespecting anything.

The ruling not to close side roads to allow for a quick pass of the bikers through the district does not over write other laws allowing anyone to use the streets-silly.

You have major authority issues. LOL, your comment-"disrespect"

The city plans to force the mortgage holder to accept whatever the city determines as the market value of the property, which is far less than the mortgage, in essence seizing the assets of the mortgage holder.
Legal action might stick the city with the full amount of the mortgage, bankrupting the city.

Galt saw and heard the phony war hero say regime change was still the objective.
Don't confuse anything with quotes from the press spokesboy.
Galt is too f*cked up to think there might be two objectives.

One to punish Syria for the use of chemical weapons. This would be the military strikes or Syria giving up its Chemical Weapons.

The other is regime change. This is were we help the rebel forces through aid & arms.

Obama has mishandled Syria over the past few years. The good/very good options he once had to fix Syria, are in the rearview mirror. the shiter you ignorant idiot... Romney or anything else is your fairy tale.

Golf anyone? Hollywood? Vacations?? More incompotence, ineptitude anyone?? Over 100,000 Syrians killed, no problem...
