I recently sued someone for fraud and was quoted $30K to $50K for going to trial and this wasn't a super complicated case...so $100K isn't so crazy. Consider an average lawyer making $330/hr and you're at $5K with only 15 hrs of work. Enough to start doing research and begin drafting a complaint at most.
but 100,000 people could certainly afford $1 to show this fucker the door.
Speaking of legalities, wouldn't the right recourse for a principal who thinks the student is intentionally violating school copyright to file a civil complaint and not to suspend them or kick them out of school? Seems like he's using suspending the student as a punishment for "not doing what I want".
they should bring back public execution or torture for this dude.
apparently it was an area of DC where you always find the upper crust
that's a disturbed, confused perspective. i can only imagine you are just provoking and don't actually believe it as you posted as a coward.
Someone doesn't want to work more than 40 hours then they shouldn't. That's their choice.
you act like it's alway a choice. you also seem to see things as black and white. sounds like you are young and healthy and have no responsibility beyond yourself.
i specifically referenced people who can not work 40 hrs or 80 hrs or 120 hrs or what ever specific number of hours they might need to work to make enough to make ends meet. i know i couldn't work more than 40-50 hrs a week regardless of my will due to health problems that were no fault of my own.
If you want people to be reasonably comfortable and secure in their lives then stop making them victims, remove the incentives that keep them from doing more for themselves
Yes, exactly, this is the idea behind government minimum wages...stop making them victims of corporations, of capitalism, and of the wealthy.
Whatev $15/hr in 2020 is like $8/hr in 1995. Think about how much you made back then. Did you think you were killing it making $8/hr in 1995? Doubt it.
It's just a bit better than keeping pace with inflation.
FYI...minimum wage was $4.25 back in 1995 but it wasn't hard to make $6/hr even at fast food.
Whoa, we could all be millionaires!!
There's two problems with this logic:
1) we all suffer when employees underpay workers to maximize profits because we, as tax payers, are subsidizing their low wages through food stamps, welfare, social services, grants, loan assistance, housing assistance, healthcare, etc.
2) it's not always possible to work enough hours to make enough money...there's only so many hours in the week. especially for people with health problem or kids, there's a limit and it's probably not much more than 40 hrs.
Lastly, I don't want to live in a society that's full of poor people. I want most people to be reasonably comfortable and secure in their lives.
I'd rather pay $200/yr tax for infrastructure or something fixed like this than feel like I'm running a tax meter every time I get in my car. I bet a whole lot of people would prefer to do the same. I know, it will never happen, this is socialism at it's worst!
why can't they roll it up as a flat rate into state/fed taxes and remove the tax on gas? no one wants to be tracked...or feel like they get taxed every time they get in their car.
we all use the roads. even if we don't use them directly, we get mail, we purchase stuff that has been shipped to stores and our homes, we benefit from fire/police services that use roads etc...and more abstractly, we hold jobs that exist largely because we have a efficient economy with good transport of goods.
Also their ecosystem is very important to their success, and it would be much harder to rapidly grow an ecosystem with $1K+ TVs that are replaced every 10 yrs rather than a $100 smart box that can be added to each TV in the house and replaced at minimum cost as needed.
People are Corporations too!
Well, you can just resell your purchased item to a third party and then they are no longer beholden to any original agreements. Oh, wait, you're not a corporation? Never mind.
