Two years ago, Target said it would raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour by the end of 2020. The move won praise from labor advocates and put pressure on other companies to also move to $15. (Snip) "I got that dollar raise but I'm getting $200 less in my paycheck," said one, Heather, who started in November at a Florida store working around 40 hours a week. She's now below 20 some weeks, she said. "I have no idea how I'm going to pay rent or buy food." Hours for workers in retail are notoriously unpredictable and often

Comments:

Surprise! You got your raise and Target got praised by liberals. Now go find a better job.

I’ll do the math: 40 hours x $10 = $400. Then $15 per hour X 26.6666666 hits = $400. Same money, but now you have 13.33333333 hours a week for another part time job.

Well now, who could have seen this coming? The mastermind libtards and any of their ideas always, ALWAYS will be a loser. So now that Target is at $15, do I hear $20? $20?, $20?, who's got $20?

Leftist cannot grasp that the money to pay employees has to come from somewhere and is NOT unlimited. They have never even run a lemonade stand, or a paper route, and yet they are all ready to tell business people how they must run their businesses. Idiots who think they have all the answers, and the reality is they didn't even understand the question.

These poor kids have no clue about real life. I remember the supervisor at McDonalds telling the reporter she needed at $15 an hour to survive. Well duh, go find a job paying that. Your employer tells you what he will pay, you don't get a job then demand what you want. This generation has so many hard lessons to learn,.

Don't worry, it's exactly how the Democrats planned. They then get to offer all sorts of government programs, which in turn ensures those who work at those departments aren't in jeopardy of losing their jobs due to too FEW people who need the assistance. Sadly, it's seldom assistance, but ends up becoming too hard to leave since it would take $25 per hour, or more, to have the same "benefits". And, they have another voter secured since Republicans talk about cutting X programs, or "taking away" the benefits, per Democrat talking points. Unfortunately, the company, Target in this case, finds it harder to have regular workforce due to the lack of hours, to assist customers, which pushes them towards even more automation to make up for the shortfall.

This can't have been their first rodeo. The age old labor trick is to raise wages and lower hours. Next trick is to raise wages and raise insurance premiums at the same time.

If $15 is the minimum wage, it might be worth recalling that minimum wage was instituted as a valuation of a new inexperienced hire, i.e. a teenage student's introduction to the labor force and its demands, not as a sustaining family wage.

Just more liberal BS, like when Obama fiddled with the definition of 'Full Time' and the medical benefits. Plus you're working fewer hours, don't qualify for any medical benefits but the employers expect you to get the same work done. Yeah... same BS.

Here’s the real math: in retail store that uses, say, 1000 hours a week at an average salary of $10/hr will spend $10,000 on payroll. That same $10,000 will buy only 667 hours of payroll time at a rate of $15/hr. A store which is open seven days a week for an average of 10 hours a day requires a fairly good size crew, both full-time and part-time, to meet customer demands and have employees in the stores in larger quantities during peak hours. If the above mentioned store does indeed need 1000 hours to meet its weekly demand for proper customer service, that store needs to spend an additional 333 hours at $15 an hour to get back up to 1000 hours. That would raise payroll dollars by an additional $5000 bringing the total payroll expenditure for a week up to $15,000. If a store can only afford 1000 hours a week at the rate of $10/hr. Now customers then have to choose whether they want to pay more for all the items they buy or settle for very poor customer service. Most customers would not settle for either and would shop elsewhere. If enough customers shop elsewhere the store goes out of business and now nobody has a job. Ironically in this imaginary store, some of those $10 an hour employees are indeed worth $15 an hour. But also some are worth $5 an hour and they too will go to $15 an hour.

An organization deals with three components - land, labor, and capital. It has no control over land and capital, but labor costs are controllable, even if the employees are unionized.( Organizations typically want long, multi-year labor agreements, with no strike clauses. Unions worry about being locked in on wage rates over a long period of time. Part of my labor relations experience included labor mediation, so I speak from having been out there in the real world.) Managers, especially in retail, are evaluated, in large part, by their demonstrated ability to control labor costs. Welcome to the real world.

Maybe they are working at the wrong store. I have been in Target maybe twice this year. Because of their political and PC views, it's never busy. Something has to give. Careful what you wish for. I don't go to Walmart very often either. Yesterday, there was one regular register open and they had added a ton of self serve registers during the big remodel. Seems all stores have to look alike now. CEOs in all their wisdom recreating the wheel to justify their salaries, never consider customers and their needs.

FTA: Cities like San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Chicago and others are passing "fair workweek" legislation. In some cases, laws require businesses to offer their existing part-time workers more hours when they become available before hiring additional staff. Democrats have come up with new mandates to "help" the workers who are suffering due to the Democrats $15/hr and healthcare mandates. Just great.

Heading into Tuesday's Democratic debate, Bernie Sanders has a special post-heart attack burden: to prove he's healthy enough to serve as president, a new poll shows. In the HuffPost/YouGov survey, released Monday, 42% of Democrats said the Vermont senator's "physical condition is not good enough." Sanders, 78, was hospitalized in Las Vegas recently for three days after experiencing chest pains following a campaign event. The doctors discovered he had suffered a myocardial infarction when the senator underwent surgery to receive two stents. In the survey of 1,000 people from Oct. 8-10, 26% of Democrats said his health was good

Billionaires may have much more to fear from a Bernie Sanders presidency than they do from an Elizabeth Warren administration, according to two economists advising both candidates. That’s one of the conclusions of a new interactive website developed by University of California, Berkeley professors Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman. If Sanders had his way, they calculate that the 400 richest Americans, on average, would have an effective tax rate of 97.5%. That includes not only their income, but also a wealth tax that whittles away at the family fortune. The 97.5% average effective tax rate under his plans compares with

A new report by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee reaffirms what the White House refuses to accept: Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help then-candidate Donald Trump and to hurt his presidential rivals. The findings are alarming for the breadth of Russia’s operation, the Kremlin’s direct involvement and the ongoing threat posed by foreign meddling to American democracy. But perhaps more than anything, the report amounts to a bipartisan rebuke of the White House’s own disinformation campaign to shift the blame away from Russia. The committee, chaired by Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., released a second report this week that furthered the findings of America’s intelligence community

Additionally, he made a public promise that if his father, Joe Biden, wins the presidency, he will "forego all foreign work." Quite a lot to unpack here. Firstly, he's missing the point entirely. While President Trump's Ukraine phone call shined a bright light on Joe and Hunter Biden's corruption, the outrage was never about him working for a foreign company. It was about how he got those positions in the first place — with his father's power and status in the U.S. government.
