Re: “Reader: Lamborn should have a town hall for childish liberals, then another for the adults

Helen - Shame on you for your comment: Most of these people were females filled with emotion and estrogen rather than facts. I agreed with you that there sould be civil discourse on issues that concern us all but you have negated your point with you ignorance. Please be quite and let the adults discuss - just as you suggested.

Re: “Low-income workers just got a raise — which may or may not be a good thing

I'm confused, as per the article, "The law also boosted the base minimum wage for waiters who must make at least minimum wage when tips are factored in from $5.29 to $6.28 an hour."

But Kanatzar says "he already pays much of his staff more than the minimum, and while waiters are generally paid the minimum, when tips are factored in they're his "highest-paid employees."" sounds like this shouldn't impact him at all if his waiters are already making $6.28 or more with tips.

"Since he now has to pay waiters more, Kanatzar says, he won't be able to boost the pay of his kitchen staff as much." - Why would he have to pay them more if they are his "highest-paid employees" already with tips.

Did I miss something here?
