You read that right. The tipped minimum wage has stayed the same since 1991.

Minimum-wage protections are an issue Cain knows intimately. In his work as the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and later as president of the National Restaurant Association, Cain worked diligently in Washington and in the media to see that low-wage restaurant workers could legally be paid as little as possible, as In These Timeshas noted. In fact, Cain’s time in the restaurant business was marked by a long and largely successful battle against minimum-wage increases, and even today, some 15 years later, many of the nation’s waiters and waitresses have Cain and the restaurant lobby to thank for a federal minimum wage of $2.13 for tipped workers.

When Utah residents saw 22-year-old Darrien Hunt carrying a toy sword, they called police who shot and killed him. But when 22-year-old Joseph Kelley carried an assault rifle to a JC Penney store in Utah, he walked out without a scratch on his body. They were both the same age. Both in the same state. But only one was considered “suspicious.” And you still believe America is color blind?
The guy had a blunt sword, part of a costume. Was leaving a cos-play event.
Utah is horrible.
Remember this on election day 2014. #midtermsmatter #voteblue
Gun nuts don’t care if there is inherent racism in their favorite weapons. After all, how else would they want to murder “savages”? Besides with smallpox blankets, of course.
