It seems that, with the exception of a small few, the restaurant owners affected by New York City’s new paid sick days legislation agree with it in principle, not practice.
Food blog Eater surveyed four small restaurant owners in New York City to get their thoughts about the new paid sick days law. Despite overwhelming evidence that points to the positives of the legislation, most of them disagreed with the law.
“Philosophically I completely love the idea of paid sick leave. I love the idea of a living wage,” says Monica Byrne, owner of Home/Made.
But then Byrne goes on to note that while she’s “all for getting us there” she’d prefer to do it “in a sane manner that doesn’t make it impossible for teeny little mom and pop—or mom and mom in my case—businesses to survive.”
In reality, there are thousands of workers and their families are struggling to survive while ill due to inadequate paid sick leave.
“In general I’m not against the law. I think it’s very good, especially for the back of house employees,” said William Tigertt, owner of N.Y.-based Freemans.
He then counters his own claim by noting that, “The way it shakes out, I think it will eventually end up eliminating more jobs as people try to cut back as much as they can, and do more quick service or fast casual concepts where there isn’t as much labor.”
Contrary to Tigertt’s statement, giving employees paid sick days doesn’t have a great financial impact on businesses.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, paid sick days costs employers less than 1 percent of employees average pay.
Still, there were a few restaurant owners who were in favor of the now final law.
James Mallios, owner of Amali, made the decision to give workers paid sick days over a month ago, for both business and moral reasons:
“I used to work at a job where I had sick days, and I didn’t think twice about it. Someone should be able to do that. It doesn’t make them a bad employee, it doesn’t make them a bad person, it just means their priorities are correctly aligned. And on a completely selfish level, in terms of dollars and cents, one of the most under-appreciated assets in the restaurant business is your employees. There’s an amazingly high cost to attrition.”
i didnt mean to become an angry feminist it just sort of happened because i looked out my window and woke the fuck up y’know
People like Clinton Gode are challenging state laws that deny Americans with disabilities the right to vote.
"…Arizona is one of 14 states that categorically bar people who are under guardianship or are judged to be mentally "incompetent" or "incapacitated" from voting, according to the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law. Although all but 11 states have disability-related voting restrictions, laws that impose uniform bans on people who are under guardianship or judged to be incompetent disproportionately target adults with disabilities or mental illness, including veterans with traumatic brain injury, seniors with dementia, and people with autism.”
And yet I never hear ableism being brought up in conversations about voter suppression. Funny how that works.
brown girls rule the world
I’m sorry to say this but if someone said “white girls rule the world” instead of “brown girls rule the world” then we’d have a major shitstorm on our hands.
Because when white people rule the world bad things happen
-stealing children from natives
-unfair control of land and money
-skin whitening creams
-unfair representation in the media
-bias school material (starting in preschool)
-mass incarceration of PoC
Shall I continue?
Y’all are everywhere
Y’all have made young PoC hate themselves because they’re skin isn’t white enough
So when a brown girl flaunts her beauty please do yourself a favor and don’t interrupt
I hope I live for the day white girls don’t rule the world anymore
And it’s not racism against white people
We ain’t got the power to oppress you.
Girls of any color rule the world, we’re badass
no literally only brown girls. no one else. can you read
Holy he’ll, just because white people in power have fuck up while women can’t have a little control? That’s a ducked way of looking at it. Yes, there are a lot of things that white people have done, but that doesn’t mean that we as women can’t role together. Not to attack all men, but a majority of those problems are because of white MEN throughout history, it still doesn’t mean ALL men are responsible does it? No
But white women stayed perpetuating it. White feminism in America started w/ the explicit exclusion of WoC and still does so please take your privilege elsewhere.
ummm excuse me robbing banks is my kink and if you arrest me it’s kink shaming so i think you’ll find i’m free to go officer
why do i do this to myself
white people’s reactions to that post criticising Lucy makes me so fucking angry. More than that, it makes me trust them a little bit less.
fuck that whole “yes it’s problematic but I’m still excited!” attitude towards that film because it is so much bullshit. Yeah, who cares about POC getting slaughtered and the violent linguistic imperialism BECAUSE ~STRONG WHITE FEMALE CHARACTER~. Apparently, POC’s deaths are less rage-inducing and less meaningful to white allies if a white woman is killing them instead of a white man.
To us, it’s still same white violence we see impeached everyday.
A white woman literally shoots a man in the head for not speaking English. Never mind the danger and oppression non-native English speakers face in the West, this took place in his home country. White expats are given so much fucking priority in Taiwan and China, with the way they’re catered to and coddled.
The kind of neo-imperialistic violence that this film is couching as ~female empowerment~ is really, really fucking harmful. White people have privilege in non-Western countries as well (the shit I’ve seen expats and exchange students get away with in China is astounding), to the extent that we aren’t even safe from harm in our own countries; this film not only ignores it, it glorifies it.
don’t you ever fucking forget that, because we can’t.
Part of having privilege means being able to watch and enjoy media that is harmful to marginalised minorities and still be critical of it, but when this dehumanisation is shoved in our faces, white people need to remember that this is so, so personal.
Ray Moore, Republican candidate for lieutenant governor in South Carolina, would like y’all to get serious and yank your kids out of the godless public schools. Thanks to Raw Story for finding this gem:“It’s our hope and prayer that a fresh obedience by Christian families and educating their children according to biblical commands will prove to be a key for the revival of our families, our churches, and our nation,” said Ray Moore, a retired Army Reserves chaplain and president of Frontline Ministries.
Moore told a gathering of Tea Party activists at the April 12 Liberty Rally that Christians must leave the “Pharaoh’s school system” for religious schools or home schools.
“We cannot win this war we’re in as long as we keep handing our children over to the enemy to educate,” he told the crowd.
I HATE REPUBLICANS
BRAINWASHING HERE HELLO
"Dumbledore's sexuality wasn't relevant to his character" they say, when his relationship with Grindelwald was one of the most important events of his life.
"dumbledore’s sexuality wasn’t relevant to his character"
lmao yeah romantic relationships aren’t relevant in harry potter
forget about the fact that the entire theme of the series was love and that almost every character had explicitly stated heterosexual romantic subplots somewhere in the series
but yeah romance is only relevant when it’s het obviously
And it’s not like any of Harry’s friends at school could be LGBTQIAP+
Ginny couldn’t be bisexual. Seamus couldn’t be gay. Katie couldn’t be trans. Definitely couldn’t have had bisexual Remus, in love with Sirius AND then moving on to Tonks. No way could we have had a canonly asexual Luna, or Neville, or Cedric.
All straight. Everyone in the entire HP universe just had to be fucking straight.
Except for Dumbledore.
Who can never ever ever talk about it. Ever.
bisexual ginny and asexual luna are something i now need in my life
and does anyone else ship james/sirius with a passion like me or??
please don’t refer to someone as a “lover” when they just orchestrated the rape of their partner. PLEASE STOP PERPETUATING RAPE CULTURE
