  • Tip pool ruling cuts restaurant costs
    Guest
    The comments made by #11 & #20 are exactly the way it is. Professional servers provide so much more than what most people relize. Comments from #12 & #14 have no clue of how it works. #14 you have restaurants in 43 other states. Well guess what if you want to be part of Oregon, you have to play by Oregon rules. It sounds like really you could afford more than two servers if you weren't so worried about cutting into your corporate profits. #12 you ...

  • Tip pool ruling cuts restaurant costs
    Guest
    Really? Why are we surprised by the ruling? It came from a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge. Just another way of pressing the liberal agenda known as "wealth distribution". I tip at least 20%, usually more, when I receive quality service because I know what it's like dealing with the public. I also believe the servers should voluntarily put in some of their tips to share with the other staff (i.e. cooks, dishwashers, etc.) because they are ...

    he a verage tip is 15 to 20 percent- the government can't take tips for what they don't know they can only take an estimate from your credit card receipts and a basic cash flow... again I will repeat myself -servers in Oregon make minimum wage really really close to the same wage to the standard cook thanks but cooks are not eligible for tips so you're 10% of tips over the night plus your minimum wage does not equal the wage of a cook in Oregon ...

    This guy's actions are out of this world. Even worse, MODA CEO's response -- whaaaa?? If this is o.k. with MODA's CEO, then there's bigger problems here. Johnson should not be at MODA in 2015. He's not fit to lead. Period.

    Everyone does not tip ! And to be required to tip out the cook 10% of my food sales when I might not have gotten a 10% tip from that table. I will already be taxed by the government on what they think I made. In some cases it feels Luke I am working for the cooks !

  • Pendleton Woolen Mills' new CEO spins company into the future
    Guest
    Received a Pendleton robe as a gift. Few weeks ago...made in china. Had several quality and sizing issues. Ended up disposing of product to Goodwill. Tried to post review but Pendleton will not allow review to be posted if it indicates their product is made in China. Clearly, they're trying to obscure the fact...shows "imported" on website. Used to love their products.

  • Lawmakers of timber-dependent counties express frustration
    Guest
    Environmentalis ts have destroyed Oregon's natural resource based economy. I am sure all of those mill workers and loggers and fishermen are delighted that the Spotted Owl is now free to be food for the Barred Owl. Meanwhile Democrats shoot the Golden Goose and complain that these counties cannot come up with additional tax revenue. How sad that this cabal of anti economic growth was re-elected by city dwellers who sip lattes and work in high ...

  • Walmart coming to Warrenton
    Guest
    I am anxious to see Walmart come to the area. We need more stores that are willing to compete for the dollars here on the Washington Peninsula and Northwest Oregon. These Naysayers are the liberal lefties that afraid of the big competition. Yes the little guy may get squeezed but if he was on top of his game he would not worry. As a retired person, I will be glad to see competition in Pharmacy and Grocery departments. We have been overpaying these ...

  • The apothecary
    Guest
    MTM is what pharmacist always did. We always did this "for free". That was the reason why a "free service" was considered a service provided by a "non-profession al" college educated professional. Everyone charges for its services, even the "pool guy" when he cleans my pool. The fact that he also sells pool equipment in his pool shop, makes him also a merchant. So he also has a pool shop and a pool service, and charges for both. Pharmacies always ...

  • PSU study: Carbon tax would have negligible impact on economy
    Guest
    Yet another 'study' enforces the predetermined ideology about carbon emissions and "global warming." Oregon does not need another tax. Nor does this study explain how a tax will change the air over Oregon when air is not static. Are we planning a dome over the state? Just another Leftist "feel good" legislation scheme to take money from the productive sector and feed the Government Pig.

    I've worked in both AFHs and assisted living facilities. The quality of care can be better in private pay AFHs, it just it depends the individual owner. Don't be impressed by a beautiful home. I can't stress that enough. Look at the quality of the caregivers and what the workload is like. Does the owner have a separate bath aid come in to give showers? Also the turnover rate for employees is telling. You really have to go over often, and don't ...

  • Crowdfunding 2.0
    Guest
    The new statewide *securities* crowdfunding rules received public comment today from three people, Bob Banks, Jarvez Hall, and myself. All comments were uniformly supportive. Both Bob and I were on the review team. This new exemption for Oregon is unprecedented in allowing unaccredited investors to invest in Oregon-owned small business and start-ups, enabling ordinary Oregonians to become local investors, not just donors-for-toot hbrushes. Rather ...

  • Reimagining education to solve Oregon's student debt and underemployment problems
    Guest
    I have never figured out why college has been the one huge investment made, often with little thought of the return on the investment of time, talent and ever increasing treasure. It's as if one shouldn't ask before plunking down $50,000 for a degree in "Ethnic Studies" whether or not there is any potential employment after graduation. How incredibly naïve as well as just plain foolish. College used to be reasonable but the costs have exploded ...

  • Uber now running in Gresham, Beaverton, Tigard and Hillsboro, but not Portland
    Guest
    Re: Uber in Oregon. I looked into this and potential drivers should be aware that a person's personal insurance coverage may not cover a person while the app is on and they are waiting for/going to a fare. Uber does not cover you until the person is in the car and the 'meter' is running. Please see excerpt from email I requested from my insurance company below. Oregon's mandatory insurance law ORS 806.010 requires every driver to insure their ...
