Lawmakers seek soda warning labels

"“STATE OF CALIFORNIA SAFETY WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay.” Once this law is passed, we can use this same warning and just insert whatever product we want into the warning. This will be the template for change! Who knew complex issues could be solved so easily?"

Minimum wage up $3 in Oakland; may impact small businesses

"may impact small business- really a $3 increase overnight would certainly impact any small business. Probably hurts non-minimum wage restaurant workers more than anything else, only ones making minimum wage in table service establishments are the tipped employees. That leaves the best paid people in the house getting a $3/hour raise, to the detriment of the others. Back asswards."
