      Every time, even NPR. Clickbait can suck it.

      Thanks for saving the click.

        At least they said it in the first sentence of the first paragraph. The real clickbate assholes hide that info deep into the body of the article.

          Good call-out. Those kinds are so annoying, and accomplish nothing. I just jump 2/3 down the page and scan for the word and leave when I found it. They got 0 impressions, 0 clicks, and wasted their bandwidth serving up the junk.

      Does Minnesota have to be so awesome, I ask rhetorically?

      Thank you, and thank you Minnesota - leading by example.

        I mean upvoting works and it comes at the top then. When I click on a link I often copy the article or the relevant section and paste it in the comments.

    “We’ve been fighting for two long years,” Badel stated, referencing ride-hail drivers’ battle to get a minimum wage law passed in the state. He said his message to lawmakers was this: "Uber and Lyft, especially Uber, notorious for their shady lobbying … should not be allowed to dictate what becomes law in this state.”

    Lobbying is 100% the problem.

    I don’t understand why companies that don’t exclusive cater to the rich want to stop the raising of minimum wage. That means more people will have the money to use your service more.

      It’s not about how much they have, it’s about how much more they have compared to everyone else

      They want the populace to be desperate and willing to do anything for the wealth they’ve accumulated. That’s what it’s about, not directly just the number they’ve accumulated, it’s the power behind that number.
