SORT BY Relevancy
Join James Ellias for a 20 minute exploration of the unjust moral standards behind the California minimum wage increase.
On Tuesday, November 5th, NJ voters will be asked to vote on a minimum wage increase, which will not only become law but a NJ State Constitutional Amendment.
While proponents of the minimum wage increase profess to be helping out those most in need, they refuse to look to the facts and figures that point to the completely opposite direction.
Joining us as we discuss the implications of an amendment to our NJ State Constitution and the harsh economic realities of a mandated wage increase is Matt Rooney founder of the Save Jersey blog.
We will also expose the myth of who the minimum wage earner really is; who will be hit the hardest by this increase; how the job market will be affected; how poverty will be affected and impact on the economic competitiveness of NJ.

Jane and Jon start the show telling how they have techno hazards at the atm, new phone devices and accidental texting. How it can get one in trouble and how it can happen so fast. They then shift gears and Jane discusses an article by Jim Hightower about the Marriott Inn, low wages and how they expect customers to tip housemaids for the compensation of low wages vs. just getting a raise. The debate filters out to profit v. capability of corporations giving raises based on fair market values. Bob thinks high rent cannot sustain a single family dwelling and how wages don't match rent prices. They end the show with some mixed feelings on these subjects.

EXAMPLES OF DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: 1. How do drugs give people pleasure? Drugs are rewarding because they directly or indirectly stimulate the brain’s natural reward system and cause dopamine to be released. Dr. Steven Hyman: “Drugs are much more reliable and potent than normal stimuli. Instead of running that marathon, or for a scientist, working for months and writing a good paper and getting it accepted—a lot of work for a little dopamine in the brain—people who use drugs find that they can literally short-circuit all of these natural processes.”
2. Why do some people fall quickly into addiction, while others can experi- ment and then walk away? Dr. Hyman: “You know, it’s hardly heroic that we use alcohol well. And there’s no special act of will. And this gets back to the issue of vulnerability. That is, people who will take drugs enough to potentially get addicted seem to seek them out and enjoy them. They seem to have fewer warning signs.” Dr. Alan Leshner: “It’s not true that you take a drug and you become addicted for the rest of your life. Some people do. Most people don’t. However, most people (who routinely use) ultimately will become addicted to an addicting substance.
