A.J., MisterBill, misrepresenting, it is a shame that the majority of "likes" recognize and believe that a petition is probably required to compel a labor agency in AZ to do their expected job of protecting the labor force. It speaks volumes.
Did Samy really say that Martha Stewart stole their photos?? Really?!?!?!?! That's gotta be the craziest thing yet!
On May 17 I requested that this article be corrected. I worked at Wingspan from April 15, 2008 until I resigned effective July 31, 2009, for a total of 15 months and 2 weeks.
These two are not only are they stealing the tips from their employees, they are also stealing the photos of food that they put on their Yelp page. Here's a list of what I have found so far:
Amy’s Chocolate Brandied Cherry Cupcakes…
Comes from the ModernMoms website.
Amy’s Valentines cupcakes….
Come from the Bakerella website
Amy’s Waffles with Strawberries & Cream…
Comes from a bakery in Pleasant Hill, CA
Amy’s Mother Goose cake…
Actually made by a place in Ohio
Amy’s Panini Batons…
Come from 101 Cookbooks
Odder yet, that maroon-shirted fellow is local businessman Chris Edwards from Tucson Appliance fame.
I'll bet if they did a background check on Flake we would find out that he was a cereal.
No fat people allowed.... ala A&F??
Swearing by intelligent people always seems more classy.
"Fuck" is useful as virtually every article of speech. It's got punch, a nice rhythm, sets up other words well and generally is a very important part of modern speech. The more it's used the more it becomes somewhat desensitized and "acceptable" in general, but it will probably always retain enough shock value to be effective, I think.
So, fuck yeah, use it liberally.
Had Senator Flake supported the bad idea of a background check as proposed in the deeply flawed Senate Bill, he would have done a great disservice. I, for one, view this ad by the Bloombergs of our country, as proof positive that our senator is doing his job.
Keep the faith Jeff and keep doing what is right for America and Arizona.
How about just stay off the road during high traffic times--would do PR wonders for bike riders.
Profane (profanity et al) from the Latin that which is against the sacred, blasphemy, heresy. Before we can agree on what is profane we must agree on what is sacred. By demanding all speech bow to your vision of sacred you chose to elevate your God to preeminence over all other veiws of religion, establishing a state religion and banning speech against your Gods. For the sake of my view on the 1st amendment please keep your god off of my fucking tongue.
Sorry to disagree, but Mr. Kelly's name does not appear in this add. What is clearly stated is that Mr. Flake wrote a reply to this family stating he supports background checks and then broke his word and voted no. I think this makes him the liar.
Ken Rineer, Aren't there any number of industrialized countries where firearms are severely restricted, and even prohibited that are fully functioning democracies? What are the "better policing tactics" that you are referring to?
How can we restrict firearms from criminals, when we have no way to regulate the flow of these firearms to the criminals? If we had a registry, and it included every firearm sale, as weapons are used in crimes we could very quickly identify the sources providing those weapons. Due to the incredible power of the NRA we cannot even use federal funds to research gun crimes.....given the phenomenal numbers of injuries and deaths every year, of Americans, from literally babies killing babies, to every conceivable part of American society, year after year, shouldn't we be at least researching the problem?
I am a lifelong gun owner, honorably discharged US Army veteran, father, and grandfather, and I don't want my loved ones harmed by some fool who should not have a gun.
It just seem to me that we need to do something different than what we have been doing. Listening to the La Pierres screaming 2d Amendment every time someone says stop killing our kids, has finally made me sick enough to stop and think about this. Guns don't kill people..but people would not be killing as many people if they did not have the guns...that is simple logic.
So how do we stop this carnage? I don't know that, but I do know that using the same tired logic that got us to this point is not working, and will not work.
These are feel good attacks that help Mark Kelly keep his name alive for his politcal future. It's cheap and theatrical. A back ground check would not have stopped ANY of the mass shootings in the last 10 years. Lets fix the real problems, making it easier for parents, families, judges and police to have others mental health isses checked.. BUT no we dont't want to do that. Mark Kelly, you are a joke and a walking piece of garbage. Using your wife's horrible shooting as stepping stone for you. Gutless Mark, pure gutless. You're a coward Mark, a true political American COWARD.
We have plenty of self-righteous know-it-alls, they just won't come near downtown or Fourth Avenue, for which the rest of us are extremely grateful.
Nice use of semicolon blown by misplaced apostrophe--I gather you're not in editorial, @Monkey? Oh, wait ....
misrepresenting, there is a difference between what is legal and what is right. I don't dispute that they should not be keeping the tips (or they need to notify customers what they do) and it is NOT right.
The question is whether what they are doing is illegal, as has been claimed here. I would love to have someone who has eaten there post a receipt so we can see who it says your server was. Remember that Samy was entering all the orders into the POS system by himself. What are the odds that the receipt has the correct server's name on it? I know that Mario Batali was fined millions of dollars by NY last year for sharing his server's tips with other staff. But that was a MUCH different situation. Those servers were considered tipped employees. ABC is paying a full wage that does not rely on tips to get minimum wage. That may exempt them from any problems that ensue from not giving the tips to the employees. Also think of this -- they've gone through 100+ employees (many/most of whom likely left under bad circumstances). You don't think that at least one of them went to the state labor department to ask them to investigate this?
we used to get them at El Torero on 24th? off South 4th.
@Monkey: Love that your IP address originates from TNI, however. At least when I criticize your organization, I sign my name.
