30 or more locations? Many fast food operations are franchises with a few stores. If I own say 5 units, can I be forced to pay $15/hr just because there are more than 30 units that use the same name like McDonalds, Burger King,with different franchise holders, etc? There are a lot of other jobs that pay less than $15/hr, what about those employees?

I heard the press conference on the radio at 3PM. It was pathetic. You have spokesman from various law enforcement agencies "patting each other on the back" for their response efforts when at that point only facts that could released to the press should have been heard. The time for praise can come later. I would guess that was a tactic to distract the press, but most journalists are smarter than that.

So what happens to Mr. Racette, and his 2 close associates? Are they out of a job? will they be placed elsewhere, or will they perhaps be able to take retirement? Racette was only head of the facility for 3 weeks.

When the Wal-Mart in Gloversville was moved from the town to the city, a law enforcement officer told me he was glad it was now the city's problem. GPD has a constant run to Wal-Mart mostly for shoplifters.

I am not going to try to judge weather this person should be fired or not, but it does show that the police officers did their job properly. A lot of persons under arrest try to get out of it. The fact he was intoxicated is a factor in his persistence in trying to get out of this. He was not in a clear state of mind at the time. It is not a crime to ask. He did not offer a bribe or threaten anyone which would have been a crime.

Big deal, he asked and he was refused. He did not offer a bribe, asking is not a crime.
