What's going on, Albuquerque?

It's great to hear that Szeman is finally going to comply, but not so great to hear that patrons (I think) were coming in to support him not paying the servers more. Yeesh...
About the Lottery scholarship - it probably needs to become more need-based, thangrade-based - I know lots of well-off families whose kids got their tuition paid for, then skipped to different states once they graduated.
So... these new wages for servers means we don't need to tip anymore?
So the lottery recipients who don't graduate, one of our genius lawmakers thinks the State is going to be able to recoup the money from them? I mean, there's only five of those $90,000 PRC slots and I haven't heard that those proposed elected Regents will be paid positions.

Yes, that's exactly what it means. (Shakes head.) Really, if you want to be that guy, by all means, make your point by screwing over your server.
That's right, Granjero. $3.68 per hour is a whole buncha money--those servers don't need your tips! Why, most servers probably work, what, 20 hours a week? So they'd be hauling down a whole $73.60 a week before taxes, which is a screaming $295.60 a month!
Oh, and seriously? The apartment complex dwellers can't think of ANYTHING to do with their trash other than throw it in the ditch behind the complex? Definitely that's the laziest solution, but the only solution?
I think the more appropriate question to ask would be:
"If these people were coming to support an employer breaking the law by underpaying his servers, then are they going to tip generously while they're there?"
I have my suspicions about it, but I'll let you ponder it amongst yourselves...
