If it does, beginning January 1, the minimum wage will rise to $10 per hour and eventually get to $12 per hour by 2020. Voters in Flagstaff are […]
The article below is from the Arizona Chamber of Commerce in its entirety followed by an article from the Orange County Register in California. The exact same arguments can be made for California. There is almost no doubt that this will pass in California but the supporters refuse to allow questions on their websites and […]
We had a report yesterday from a dairy in the Buttonwillow area that there was a person spying on the dairy from the road. We have previously reported on this issue. The herdsman saw a van with dark tinted windows parked on the road next to the dairy fence. There was one man apparently with […]
