Stock is paying a 12% dividend and the reports I have read says the dividend 'at this time' is safe. I can't understand why the pps has dropped. JMHO
When democrat led gov't demands that employers pay, like $10.10/hr, what people NEED rather than what they are worth you know the country is in big trouble.
Federal gov't has spent over a trillion dollars on their education department and the educational level across the country has gone down. It would be fine if the trillion dollars bought us something, but it has gotten us nothing but a large federal department that has given us nothing but waste of money. Throwing money at a problem does not solve it. With your thinking Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas et al, the educational level .of these states should be up to the national average, but they still rank at the bottom. MO.
in health and education when these are states rights, not the federal gov't's and why is gov't mandating wages based on need instead of productivity? Our elected reps in congress should be forced to take a course on the constitution before they are sworn in.
Every economist knows wages are to be determined by productivity instead of need,, unless they slept through ECON 101.
Voters thinks about this.
You are absolutely correct. We must stop debating MW. The idiots we have elected are debating MW with the idea that wages should be paid with respect to what a person needs. How idiotic. Wages have always been determined by productivity and that is the way it should be.
Only idiots believe you should be paid based on what you need. MO today.
You are correct. We need to stop debating MW. Idiots need to understand as has been posted that wages MUST be determined by productivity not NEED. Who doesn't need more?.
If Corbat makes 6+ thousand dollars per hour, and the company thinks he is worth it, fine. As long as idiot gov't reps are not mandating (laws) this.
Keep gov't out of business.
Some day poor voters will wake up and realize they are paying high taxes so union gov't workers can live much better than they do. D of L stats, off the internet, show that the average gov't worker earns about 40% more than the average private worker. Take from those that have little to give to those that have more.
Most tattoo history comes from the South Sea Islands. Most male islanders were tattooed. Sailors that visited there thought it was a mark to tell other sailors where they had been. Then it spread.
California welfare is spending many thousands of dollars to remove tattoos because many employers refuse to hire tattooed people.
Oregon and Virginia are in the middle of charging a mileage road tax. You wonder how gov't will know how many miles you drive? Simple All new cars come with the same kind of black box airplanes have. It will tell the state's tax dept exactly how many miles you have driven. Didn't know that? The auto black box I believe it started in 2001. You just can't beat Obama and the other tax men when it comes to taxes.
I am not against any one making a bunch of money. This is what you are supposed to do here in America. What I am totally against is the gov't mandating wages. The idiots in congress & the president have no real idea of what any employer can pay or the productivity of any employee.. Keep gov't out of business.
It is stupid to try to set labor prices to what a person needs. Productivity is the only real basis for wages.
Keep in mind, as the costs of goods and services keep going up because of the cost of labor and other costs, naturally the top line of profit goes up and the rich do get richer. But Obama thinks he is fixing it with raising the minimum wage. Like the old fellow said, "he ain;t".
What most politicians and unions are trying to base raising MW on is 'a person NEEDS so much to live on" and if he is employed by some one then they should receive enough to live on. This sounds good but wages must be based on productivity and the market not on idiot politicians that demand all employers pay the 'MW'.because they need it. $10.10/hr and employee doesn't produce that much, can't keep that employee.
Keep gov't out of the private sector. Let the voters take care of gov't employees.
Just looking at the mkt cap. Less than $300 million. This company can be bought out with pocket change by VZ, DISH, T, S or even by any other small wireless company that wants to grow. MO
You must understand, the minimum wage IS THE POVERY LEVEL. Just like today: poverty is measured by the minimum wage. Raising the MW will not change FS usage. What it really does is increases the number of poor people.
When MW is raised it does take several months for welfare laws and prices to readjust. After that we are now again poverty at MW. Think a little.
No one has an answer or opinion. If one's pay does not go up then increasing MW does not make sense. A union person say at GM should get an automatic raise of $3.85/hr. Just my thinking.
If Obama gets his way and the MW goes to $10.10/hr, will the individuals that were making $10.10/hr with maybe 3-4 experience will his salary be automatically raised to $13.85/hr? Or, will his salary remain the same, $10.10 and be the new poor that will almost immediately be eligible for welfare benefits?
The way I understand the welfare law, MW is the main factor for qualifying for welfare plus family size..
Any one know?.
You do not have to like the candidates, but: Who is a leader? Putin or Obama.
The question again: Who is a leader?
it appears that NTLS will survive. I understand it has some good contracts with DISH and maybe others. I increased my holdings today.
The thing you must always remember whether you are betting in Vegas or the stock mkt, it is gambling and you can lose you butt. As my Dad used to tell me, you can gamble but never bet the rent or the grocery money. Good advice.
