Pa. woman sues McDonald's store owners over prepaid debit card used for wages
Natalie Gunshannon worked at a Shavertown, Pa., McDonald's location when she learned that the franchise required employees to accept payment on a J.P. Morgan Chase payroll card. But the card, she contends, imposes fees on virtually every transaction, creating a monetary and physical barrier to her hard-earned cash.

Natalie Gunshannon holds a copy of a lawsuit filed by her attorneys against a McDonald’s franchise owner. The single mother, who worked briefly at a northeastern Pennsylvania franchise, said she was suing the owners after she was given a fee-laden debit card and told that she must use it to access her earnings.
She asked for paper - but all they offered was plastic.
A Pennsylvania woman is now suing the McDonald's franchise that refused to pay her by check and instead insisted on employees using payroll debit cards.

"I'm looking for the pay I am owed and for them to understand there has to be an option," Natalie Gunshannon, 27, told the Citizen's Voice newspaper.
Gunshannon worked less than a month at the Shavertown McDonald's location when she learned that the franchise required employees to accept payment on a J.P. Morgan Chase payroll card. But the card, she contends, imposes fees on virtually every transaction, creating a monetary and physical barrier to her hard-earned cash. Among the costs, according to her lawsuit:$1.50 for an ATM withdrawal,$5 for over-the-counter cash withdrawals and $1 to check the balance. There's even a charge to pay a bill online or if the card is lost or stolen.

"When they work hard and earn their wages, why should they have to pay fees to collect their rightful wages?" her attorney, Mike Cefalo, told the Wilkes Barre Times-Leader.
Gunshannon, a single mother, made $7.44 an hour during her three weeks at the fast-food chain. Minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Coupled with the fees, Gunshannon says she was not making enough money. And when she asked to be paid another way, the franchise's owner allegedly told her the card was the only option.

"I need to receive all the money I earn," she said. "I can't afford to lose even a few dollars per paycheck. I just think people should be paid fairly and not have to pay fees to get their wages."....
Geez don't print this too much. The liberals will get ideas. They will want to put food stamps in the form of cash instead of on a card.

And I've also suggested you live in your motherland as well. We don't need you demanding that we support other foreign nations.
My mother land is Russia. That is where my relatives immigrated legally from. Putin is a better leader than O'bama these days. Maybe you are correct, they don't put up with moslem bull crap either.

At a minimum in 2012, Dennis Kucinich and Tim Holden.
Probably others.
Kucinich was mostly the victim of gerrymandering, the district was redrawn, Kucinich didn't stand a chance against Kaptur. Not sure about Holden from your area, was the PA 17th congressional district redesigned?

top ten states receiving farm subsidies

9 Arkansas $10,816,848,467 3.7%
10 California $10,341,252,547 3.5%

and I'm willing to guess that in those liberal states, the subsidies go to conservative rural counties that vote conservative

Interesting report, which I'm pretty sure you haven't read, only copied some conservative talking points
so from the little I've read, there has been a problem with the process since its inception in 1996 (Republicans controlled both Houses of Congress and enacted the change to the tax code)
upon complaints by 2 IRS employees, the IRS launched an investigation.
the number of ITIN's being turned down has increased since CY 2008
the IG reported there are serious problems
7 of the 9 recommendations of the report have been adopted by the IRS.
so what have we learned
there is a problem with the tax code, has been since 1996. nothing was done to fix the problem until the Obama administration.
BTW, I wouldn't give credit to the White House politicians for correcting the problem, I'll bet is the career bureaucrats....
oh, and I'm pretty sure the same problem was happening under the Bush administration, only they failed to investigate it
It was fixed? LOL. I can hardly wait to see what 2012 looks like. How long has O'bama been in office? never?

my girlfriend immigrated from Russia, she hates putin as does every other Russian I know. he's a brutal dictator. many believe that those Chechenyan terrorist attacks in Moscow were false flag operations.

Conservative members of Congress would gladly vote for across-the-board spending cuts, including elimination of all tax credits and subsidies.
Of course, that would include eliminating the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Obamacare premium subsidy, as well as the tax credits and subsidies that you dislike.
then how come they didn't propose gutting farm subsidies on the latest farm bill????

actions speak louder than words...republicans were all for cutting food stamps, but not a one mentioned cutting farm subsidies

Gee, you do realize that "PRIMARIED" has become a verb, Like Sen Luger was PRIMARIED by a tea party candidate.
when was the last time you saw a Democratic incumbent lose his seat in a primary election because he wasn't liberal enough or didn't toe the party line lock step
"Primaried" only applies to the Democratic party because there no longer is a Republican party, just a anti-Obama party, hating him is all they agree on. In 2014 the last remnants of the former Republican party will self-destruct. Bless the tea baggers!

I always find it amazing that the conservative right demonizes illegal immigrants, complaining of how much of a parasite they are on our society, but they never mention the people/industries that hire them and make a pretty penny exploiting them.
Myth One: Assuming all illegal aliens are employed? The number is unknown and probably small due to myth 2.

Progressives confuse aliens entering the country with work permitted green cards. These individuals are not illegal aliens unless they don't leave after card expires.

Myth Two: Not realizing it is already illegal to hire illegal aliens.
