    Talking NY Jets Salary Cap & Free Agency With Over The Cap.com

    in Sports

    This week we are joined by special guest Jason Fitzgerald from Over the Cap.com.  Our hosts Brandon Dowling and Joe Blewett will talk to Jason about where the Jets stand against the salary cap. Several reports this week mentioned that the Jets are in even better shape than originally estimated, because the salary cap went up and the Jets were under the cap last year. Jason will fill in the blanks and let us know exactly how much room the Jets have to work with. 


    Free agency begins on March 10th, so we will also discuss some possible free agent targets for the New York Jets.

    Should The Community Pay A Salary To Its Full Time Political Activists?

    in Women

    Organizing voter registration drives, holding mass meetings, raising funds, contacting the media, passing out literature, even sending out mass e-mails in order to organize people for mass political action, requires the time and resources to work without the pressure of wondering how ones bills will be paid. These are activities necessary to change conditions for a community, and yet, the activists who make things happen are often stuggling to survive themselves, which makes it unlikely that efforts will be successful to change conditions for those who most need a change. Why do we expect activists to volunteer their time and work for free, when those who are in control of government resources get paid a handsome salary to live comfortably while they maintain the status quo? Should there be a fund that community members pay into which would support acticvist who lobby and organize for better conditions for the people? Or are such organizations already in existence, but merely need more financial contributions form those they consistently help? How do we change the thinking of those who are in need of better public service so that they understand "freedom ain't free"? Which organizations do people trust enough to invest enough money into that can hire those who are dedicated to working for better conditions for all? The Urban League? The NAACP? The National Action Network? The Rainbow PUSH Coalition? Your local block club? Your own religious organization? Or something else? Would you help pay the salary for full time political activists who work for your interests?

    “Why am I always living paycheck to paycheck even when I get salary increases?"

    in Business

    This episode is part of our FINANCIAL FIERCENESS!™ series! This episode is, “Why am I always living paycheck to paycheck even when I get salary increases?”


    Budgets?
    Be cautious about budgets. People may create “ideal” (or fantasy) budgets. The goal is attaining and sustaining financial independence so you need to increase your income (and income producing assets) and lower your expenses. 


    The title of this episode states that there is already more income yet they are still paycheck to paycheck. Thus, we should immediately focus on expenses. Remember, the path to financial dependance (aka “broke”) is to spend more money when you earn more money. Instead, you must simultaneously work to increase income (or revenue) while decreasing expenses. Focusing on decreasing expenses, you must do the opposite of the inclination (i.e., I got a raise so I can get the bigger satellite package, etc.). 


    Money Days?
    This is my term for when I go through all of my expenses and cut costs (or increase my money that I have possession of). I take all of my required expenses (utilities, etc.) and my desired expenses (cell phone, etc.). I usually take 1-3 of the total list on each Money Day and do the following:
    -Call the vendor.
    -Have a timid demeanor.
    -State, “I am not able to afford this. Will you please help me lower my bill?”
    -I tell the customer service agent that I don’t want to cancel my service but I am just unable to afford it. If they do not make any acceptable reductions, I will then go to the cancellation department (usually an agent trained in retention of customers who will be able to offer better savings to me).
    -Add up all of the money that I have saved each Money Day!



    I have paid myself money that I was giving away and I am now moving closer to attaining and/ or maintaining financial independence!

    Can You Place an Employee on Unpaid Suspension

    in Legal

    Some employers discipline their employees by docking their pay or putting them on unpaid suspension for violating workplace rules. However, such a policy can create big problems if the employee whose pay is reduced is exempt from such suspensions because he or she is paid on a salary basis and generally exercises a certain degree of responsibility and discretion in doing the job. In this show, Bill and Rick discuss when salary deductions are applicable and how unpaid suspension exceptions apply.
