600 Economists Now Back A $10.10 Minimum Wage

Via: Huffington Post

It’s about time to raise the minimum wage, at least according to 600 economists.

The group, which includes SEVEN Nobel laureates, attached their name to a letter released earlier this month by the Economic Policy Institute urging lawmakers to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. In the two weeks since the left-leaning think tank first published the letter, the list of signatories has grown from 75 to more than 600.

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would LIFT about 5 MILLION AMERICANS OUT of  POVERTY, according to a study released earlier this month by University of Massachusetts-Amherst economist Arindrajit Dube, who signed the EPI letter.

Sochi Mayor Says There Are No Gay People In His City

Via: Huffington Post

The mayor of Sochi is under the impression that there are no gay people in his city.

Anatoly Pakhomov spoke with the BBC ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics and discussed how gay people would be treated in the Russian region with the country’s “homosexual propaganda” law in place. Pakhomov said gays are welcome at the Games in spite of this, so long as they “respect the laws of the Russian Federation and [don’t] impose their habits on others.”

He claimed gay people do not have to hide their sexuality in Sochi.

“No, we just say that it is your business, it’s your life. But it’s not accepted here in the Caucasus where we live. We do not have them in our city,” (See Photo) he said.

He later admitted that he isn’t absolutely certain there are no gay people in Sochi. “I am not sure, but I don’t bloody know them.”

personal thought:

There’s NO question Mayor Pakhomov will do well in the South Carolina GOP primary.
