    My retirement is with TRS, the state teacher's retirement system. My payroll comes from the department I work for, not the University. I work for Transportation and parking and our revenue is generated by parking fees and the student transportation fee. We don't see any state tax money.

    Nah, there are still some unmechanized weed choppers, but all of the cotton is pulled by strippers. (the non-human kind)

    Problem isn't minimum wage. It's too many people at this minimum wage level. We need to figure something out to reduce the numbers of this group - willing to listen to mandated birth control that's reversible or reduced minimum health care for those that can't afford it to naturally weed out the weak.

    Your statement's too vague for me to agree/disagree with. You're too smart for me on this one, old man.

    Not really. Pdom indicated there were too many minimum wage people. This category isn't identified by race. It is by population.
