Charlie is not interested in moving into wireless on the penny ante scale. NTLS I believe are in his sights along with TMUS. He may have his eye on one or more others., . Charlie must have companies that have a rather large customer base.
He can acquire these small companies, consolidating and give the big boys a run for their money.
This is my opinion/guesses.
Idiot thinking is that the gov't must mandate a living wage. You must understand that wages are between labor and mgt. When gov't raises the cost of living by raising MW, everything goes up accordingly. People getting the raised MW are still the poor. The only thing gov't does is screws up every thing.
Obama says people need more money to spend. OK let's raise the MW to $1,000/hr. This will fix everything.
Thinki about it.
The CEO is making a $100 million dollars is because the B of D's decide to pay him that much. Stock holders should complain. Just think as prices goes up more dollars are generated and this CEO will be making $200 million dollars and you will still be complaining that the employees are under paid.
Wages and benefits must be determined by labor and mgt not gov't.
You don't complain about Hollywood people making $100 million dollars for a few week work.
All of the people that believe gov't must determine wages and benefits are idiots.
Simple. All thinking people realize that any gov't benefit has to be paid by someone that has a buck.
Grading Obama as a leader on a scale of 1 to 10, the best I can give him is a 2. A 2 says he is a great public speaker if he has a teleprompter and he is a great campaigner. A leader he is at the bottom of the barrel. When the SC ruled ACA was a tax and Obama said it wasn't, he should have sent the bill back to congress. MO
You are dreaming. Obama's job creation and we have about 20 million people unemployed or underemployed. This administration does not create enough jobs per month to just employ the new youth entering the labor mkt. New kids on the street are over 200,000 each month and you are praising Obama. Wake up. MO.
As old indian said, "Man speaks from both sides of his mouth:"..
When you speak from both sides of your mouth, "YOU ARE LYING".
Upper mgt dropping this big bomb, BK, on the heads of the common stock holders reeks of fraud and collusion of the B of D's and upper mgt.
In the past few week, OCZ opens a new R & D dept; they have new patents; they hire specialist engineers; Deloitte rates them 5 star; etc and all of a sudden upper mgt plans to file for BK. This definitely smells of fraud. Upper mgt will definitely have golden parachutes. MO
If I'm not mistaken a person with pre existing conditions before could find an insurer, but the premiums would be sky high. This individual can now get insurance and the premium will still be sky, but to cover this everyone else's premium will be sky high to help pay for the one with the condition.
The same thing with
Socialism at work. In a democracy this is not the way....... MO......
As intelligent citizens what we should learn from Obamacare is that when gov't does anything the cost to the tax payer is astronomical compare to what private industry would cost.
Just take a look at any gov't endeavor. Federal gov't should get out of any and everything that isn't covered by the constitution. Return to states what are states rights. MO ,
With a little luck pps can go up about a dime Friday when shorts are trying to fill their orders. I don't hold much hope that we can salvage enough to make it worth while holding in hopes of a miracle.
You must be looking at statists computed by idiot statisticians. Any time the cost of labor goes up, the cost of all goods and services goes up. Now anyone with any smarts knows when costs go up, people on fixed income can buy less.
First grade kids can understand this......,
continued. Our gov't is the people. Gov't does not address the pain they place on seniors that are on fixed incomes. Every time MW is increase it drives seniors deeper into poverty. If gov't is to be fair when they raise MW, they should mandate all pensions should be increased to compensate for the increased cost of living
Continued.... There is no problem with any employer paying their employees $15/hour or even much more. The problem is when the gov't mandates what employers pay. Gov't mandating minimum wage is most detrimental to the economy.
In 1935 US Supreme Court ruled it was legal but not smart for gov't to control wages..
It is one thing to be charitable. This means you give. It is something else when the gov't 'takes' and gives and wastes it away. Bible says give 10% to charity. The gov't takes about a total of 40% of yours for charity. You have no voice in giving or where it goes.
Time to get gov't out of charity.
Undoubtedly you did not take ECON 101 in your vast amount of education. You do not raise peoples standard of living by raising MW. What you do immediately is increase the cost of all goods and services. What this means you will have more to spend but you will be able to buy less.
When you do close the gap between the rich and the poor who do you think will do any hiring?. The only people that have ever hired anyone are the rich people. How many have you hired?
If you really want to help the poor, you should give them at least half of what you have, you really don't need as much as you have.
I doubt that the idiots wanting to raise MW are more educated than me. I have more education than the majority of the idiots.....
