Boards of state's large firms lag U.S. average in diversity September 7, 2014 at 3:40 p.m.

And? The UofA leadership is pretty much white male too.

LR police arrest 11 in McDonald's wage protest September 4, 2014 at 8:46 p.m.

Typical FSM. Where's the rest of it? Oh, here it is: "Nine of the 13 states increased their minimum wages automatically in line with inflation." How much, do you suppose, minimum wage increased in those 9 states? And is that ANYWHERE comparable to the $3 increase in the CBO report?
.
"I wonder how other countries are able to pay a higher minimum wage, along with health benefits and vacations?"
.
You wouldn't if you'd ever BEEN to one of those other countries. Go buy something and see how much it costs.

Obama: Country deserves a raise September 3, 2014 at 5:12 p.m.

The data just doesn't seem to indicate minimum wage is a problem. The majority are <25, single, uneducated, part-time. And something like half work in service where tips supplement wage but those tips are NOT included in wage statistics.

Minimum-wage proposal lands on ballot September 3, 2014 at 1:41 p.m.

UAMS, an institution that claims to be broke, was recently offering a DEGREED SCIENTIST the equivalent of ~$11.10/hr. Is it more likely the wage will be proportionally increased or that the degree will be devalued?

Piggybacking online-sales-tax bill gains traction August 31, 2014 at 10:56 a.m.

Oh, and a quick followup if I may: exempting businesses with online sales < $1 million probably exempts 99% of all businesses that have an online presence. And this is about fairness? No. It's the Walmart v. Amazon bill. It should be ALL businesses or NOTHING. No more carved out exemptions. It's all about fairness, right?

Piggybacking online-sales-tax bill gains traction August 31, 2014 at 10:33 a.m.

So Denniston complains that he's losing because out of state businesses aren't charging sales tax and...he doesn't charge sales tax for online purchases either? And I presume he'd be exempted due to the million dollar threshold. H.y.p.o.c.r.i.t.e.

Bid to end dry counties in Arkansas to hit ballot August 31, 2014 at 3:45 a.m.

You sure? In the past, I've noticed that deleted comments still add to the comment total - might be the total in the 'most commented' sidebar rather than in the article though. I don't see that here.

Nuttin' like thumpers thumpin'.

Dayum straight. In the meantime, I'm a gonna go buy me some beer tomorrow. Don't like it? Then stay in your fookin' house.

For women's safety August 21, 2014 at 8:43 p.m.

I recall one such shelter, of which the Guv's wife is currently on the board, respond to a complaint of verifiable racism by forcing out the two who made the complaint (one fired for job-related deficiencies less than one month after receiving an 'exceptional' review) and falsifying employee records (which could be proven) to justify terminating the other, all without bothering to even interview the complainants. Or is that acceptable because, hey, shelters help women?

Minimum wage group turns in petition haul August 19, 2014 at 8:34 p.m.

Well, as somebody who worked min wage in high school, I certainly would have objected to making less money than somebody else doing the same job simply because I wasn't older. And besides, I'm pretty sure US law currently would forbid a two tiered system based on age.
