He retired. And then decided to play again. He took all responsibility after that. If he doesn't play those games for the Patriots, who knows how he lives. So it was his choice. If anybody deserves to eulogize him, call Belicheck. His pimp.
Plus, you are allowed to make $58 (I think) a week, so it can't hurt to check. You can do that online without filing. If you are laid off and they eliminate your position, you are a "displaced worker", and eligible to take courses for free. I was going to take truck driver training, but found a job before courses started. This is assuming you live in NC.
Doubling minimum wage would cause thousands of businesses to close. Instead of saying "double minimum wage" you have to say "double everybodys wage". If the shift manager at McDonalds makes 14.75 an hour, and the guy making fries gets bumped to 15.00, you have to raise everyone at the same rate. Or just have a bunch of folks making fries. Why should the guy who's been there for a few years and runs the place take any of the responsibility, when people off the street can make more? And everybody that works for the suppliers is gonna want 15.00, too, so prices are going to rise on everything. Including gas used to transport those supplies.
