COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

@24AheadDotCom Don't know the specifics about McD's but there's overwhelming support from the business community for CIR as a whole. Cont.

@24AheadDotCom There's no "angle". It simply makes economic sense. Great report on small business support of CIR: http://t.co/Ef6l6PH9EO

From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom seems like we need to address the issue of raising the minimum wage.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom especially since "[McDonald's] cannot even provide their workers with adequate wages to support their families."
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Maybe we do. But raising wages works better with a restricted labor supply.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Increasing labor supply then increasing minimum wages is like printing money then imposing price controls.

Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom I know I'm digressing but personally, I think that states should determine their labor supply needs.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom why is the fed. Govt. responsible for capping work visas without knowing a state's labor needs?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @beckytallent ...prisoners won't work there. So import those who will rather than demand better conditions (2/2).
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom The same reason it is responsible for determining what a low-skill worker's time is worth?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom determining the number of migrant workers a state needs is different than determining a national min. wage.

.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom So you think that Arizona's SB1070 should have been upheld in its entirety?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Can a state determine that it does not need or want immigrant labor and keep the immigrants out?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom not sure where you got that from my comments. And no, it should have been deemed unconstitutional.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom especially the part that was upheld. The "reasonable suspicion" detention portion. It invites racial profiling

@MontanoJM @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom States absolutely have the right to model laws on federal law and enforce.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@pyconnor @Glaivester @24AheadDotCom and SCOTUS has the right to deem those laws unconst. Esp. if they're given to rampant discrimination

.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @pyconnor My point: you claim to think that states should determine how much immigration they need, not feds.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom @pyconnor However, you change your mind when the states determine they want LESS immigration than feds.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom What about a state deciding not to honor federal green cards? Is that okay too?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Under your system, if a state thinks it has too many workers, can it prohibit hiring non-citizens?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Or can it prohibit hiring particular classes of non-citizens (e.g. guestworkers, non-permanent residents)?
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom I don't think you understand the difference between work visas and green cards.
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom Why can it force them to permit foreign workers without knowing its employment needs?
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom You're right, I meant work visas.
Joseph Montano's avatar
From @MontanoJM
@Glaivester @24AheadDotCom interesting concept. I would say that state-based visas should be issued in addition to the fed. Gov visas issued
Glaivester's avatar
From @Glaivester
.@MontanoJM @24AheadDotCom You mean states should only be given the ability to determine labor needs when they say they need MORE.
