If Ford knows people are committing crimes, aren't they legally required to report it, otherwise they become an accessory..?
They didn't say anything about "crime". Ford probably knows only your location and speed you were going, i.e. they know if you are speeding and breaking the law. Most likely they put in that system, so that people who get into accidents cannot claim it was Ford's manufacturing defect that caused the accident.
... Anyway, I'm not aware of states with 10% sales tax - usually it is about half of that, and the highest seems to be 7.5% in CA. To get to 10%, I have to scroll down the list and find the highest state taxes and combine them with the highest local taxes.
In Illinois it is 6.25% which can have an additional 8.25% tax for "prepared foods", bringing total tax to 15.5%. Alaska has flat 12% sales tax for everything.
There is about a dozen states that have sales tax of over 9%. This is just state sales tax without additional city/county specific sales taxes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sales_taxes_in_the_United_States
China's Single's Day on November 11, which started out in the 1990s as a protest to Valentine's Day.
Considering the fact that Valentine's day is a Hallmark holiday to get people to buy trinkets, how is setting up another Hallmark holiday to get people to buy even more trinkets a protest?
By protesting in this way they want to draw attention to single people, who feel left out during usual holidays, especially during Valentine's Day. People participating in this so called protest are trying to show that they are an important demographic, who wants to be mentioned during other holidays and during marketing campaigns.
The judge will ask the cop how fast you were driving, he'll say 88mph, you'll say 65mph, and the judge will believe what the cop said.
Supposedly cops are trained to gauge your speed using nothing more than their experience, training, and a stopwatch. Cop's testimony is usually the main "evidence". Radar data is secondary supportive evidence. From my experience in traffic courts, cops always have printout from their radar. On top of that, judges often start out their initial question towards you with words that basically mean "why should I believe you instead of this respected police officer?"
Presumably every driver has the skills to park because they passed a driving test. Maintaining those skills is a different matter, but that's an issue for all drivers, not just ones who choose to let their car park for them. I'd love the feature, personally.
Some states do not require you to park to get your driver's license. In some places just driving on a dirt road for 5 minutes gets you your license, which later can be changed to another state's license without another test.
Folks at Seagate also want to eat.
PAY MORE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wish I had mod points to vote you higher.
It seems like 80-120k is a decent salary range; however, it is not high enough to pull someone from another company who's got a decent job that they like. Part of CEOs' high pay is a "talent retention" bonus, since companies are worried that skilled CEOs will go somewhere else. In IT, on the other hand, very few companies pay "talent retention" bonus, because nobody is worried about IT workers leaving for another company. It all must be due to good market conditions for employers, which is directly opposite of their need for more qualified IT workers.
It will take more than a few months to get fluent in all of these.
It will still take less time that finding an H1B worker and getting his paperwork approved.
They've no fixed value like $100k, but must prove they're paying more than the average pay for that job.....
Right now companies just have to prove that they are capable of paying it. They don't have to prove that they intent to pay it. They don't have to prove later in the future that they are paying it. You don't have to be a highly paid lawyer to see ways around this requirement.
If one company claims there is a shortage of domestic workers, and offers $60k to hire a foreign worker; a 2nd company claims the same and offers $90k; and a third claims the same and offers $120k; which should get the slot?
Unless there is way to verify that those wages are actually being paid for duration of the H1-B employment after work visa has been granted, then there is no point in competing or asking them to pay a certain wage.
Right now there is also such a thing as prevailing wage for a particular job type, but companies have ways around it. They apply for H1-B and for Green Card using high salary/wage numbers, and later use some legal tricks to sidestep this requirement and pay less.
The Duracell Bunny campaign was launched in 1973 and predates the Energizer Bunny, which was created in 1989.
An H1B can't be paid less than the prevailing wage for a position of the same type.
I wish it was that way, but lawyers at my company were much smarter than I was, or maybe they had more balls. I was paid below the prevailing wage on the approved PERM application. Before it got approved and after - nothing changed.
