It is amazing that the restaurant industry's profit is based on a low wage low/no benefit part-time workforce, many of which are illegals, and then cheats them out of their hard earned money. The State allows less than minimum wages and then taxes the forced-to-share tips of the wait staff. On top of that the taxpayers supplement the restaurants profit by providing welfare benefits to the workers.
Thanks to some bad choices many years ago, I was once on one of the Caltrans crews that cleaned up some of those camps. No notice was given, and we got rid of everything that was there. At least they are given notice in advance now.
If you open the window during the day how will the bar maintain its darkness? Instead of a window how about an Open sign?
This is a complete scam! Follow the money. It is shockingly similar to what has happened at San Onofre Nuclear Power plant by Camp Pendelton. AG, Kamala Harris, is running for the US Senate. She is apparently making all kinds of "Sell Out" deals to advance her career. First, Harris makes a deal selling out millions of California Homeowners in favor of the Big Wall St. Banks and Hedge Funds who received sweet heart deals to foreclose on large numbers of California homeowners and turn their homes over to Wall St Hedge Funds at wholesale costs to make huge profits off the stiffed homeowners. Big Banks got paid and "made whole" through the back door since the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac home loans were covered by Federal Insurance. (taxpayer bailout). Harris and other AGs made deals with Big Banks...they saved a small percentage of homeowners and hung the majority of them out to dry because that is what Wall St Banks and the Hedge Funds wanted. Wall St. created the housing crisis and crashed the market, then they profited off the crash created by Wall St. (Of course, later as a PR move, Wall St and its partners in the right wing media tried to blame Main St. for the Sins of Wall St.) Second, Harris Sided with Southern California Utilities and sold out Southern California rate payers in the closing of San Onofe causing rate payers to pay billions and not shareholders/Big S. Cal Utilities as should have been the case. Third, Harris is selling out the victims of the San Bruno explosion and siding with the Utility SDGE. As I have read here and elsewhere, it appears that some side political deals may have been made or something very suspicious has gone on maybe involving Governor Jerry Brown, his Sister, Kathleen Brown, etc...in at least 2, and 3....and maybe 1...It is hard to tell. I am hoping Don Bauder and others can get to the bottom of these deals and shed more light on these questionable political machinations..
A lot of rich bumbs are likely drooling on themselves over that corner lot. The high school is next to City College where they have an important partnership. Leave the kids in school(s).
I think it's odd that Manchester would sell the UT after only 2 years and making acquisitions of newspapers the past year or so. My only guess is that he is hoping sell UT and retain the land. The UT's circulation has continued to drop so perhaps he figures it's time to cut his losses and sell. The other factor to consider is that Manchester has not put much resources into the paper other than UTTV which is now a online web channel broadcast only.
