You read that right. The tipped minimum wage has stayed the same since 1991.

Minimum-wage protections are an issue Cain knows intimately. In his work as the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and later as president of the National Restaurant Association, Cain worked diligently in Washington and in the media to see that low-wage restaurant workers could legally be paid as little as possible, as In These Timeshas noted. In fact, Cain’s time in the restaurant business was marked by a long and largely successful battle against minimum-wage increases, and even today, some 15 years later, many of the nation’s waiters and waitresses have Cain and the restaurant lobby to thank for a federal minimum wage of $2.13 for tipped workers.

America.

Ah, yes, America, where school districts are given military-grade weapons for free while budgets are slashed for things like schoolbooks, teacher salaries, and school lunches.

What the fuck is wrong with these school districts… and what the FUCK is wrong with the federal government that thinks its okay to give away this shit to school districts?!?

The Stunning Velocity Of The Marriage Equality Movement
The direction and pace of court decisions about same-sex couples’ marriages rights in the past 15 months brought the issue back to the Supreme Court with unanticipated speed. All that remains is the justices’ decision whether to hear a case this term.
