Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Have it your way..NOT today…at least not at Burger King on Concord Pike in Wilmington.  Fast Food employees at this location joined in with dozens of other workers in U.S. cities to protest their low pay and benefits.

Most workers agreed that the profits these corporations earn should be used to pay higher salaries and benefits which would be better for the economy.  The minimum wage of $7.25 an hour or $15,000 a year for full time employees is not enough to support a family.  Jobs which were once held by High School students are now being filled by men and women with families who are living paycheck to paycheck.

Burger King Worldwide stated that they do not make pay decisions for their independent franchises, but feels as though an increase in salaries would mean higher priced menu items.

Federal Labor Law gives all workers the right to engage in “protected concerted activities” to complain about wages, working conditions or other terms of employment.  Therefore, those involved in today’s protests are protected and can return to work without repercussions.  The local Police was also on hand to ensure walk-in and drive-thru customers were not affected.

What is your opinion on today’s Fast Food Protest.  Should the minimum wage be raised to $9.00 an hour as proposed by The President or higher as requested by the workers?

Hello Friends and Happy Tax Day 2013!

I hope you have completed and submitted your taxes and maybe got a refund.  Ours were completed last week and thanks in part to the numerous Goodwill donations throughout the year we got a little tax break.

As much as much I love donating to GW Boutiques, thrifting there is much more enjoyable.  Last Sunday I went to Goodwill in Middletown, which by the way has been reorganized and looks great.  I thrifted a skirt, 2 tops and a pair of new floral jeans for $20.25, and submitted these photos for their Macklemore “Pop The Tag” contest.

Then on Thursday I went to GW Boutique on Concord Pike and thrifted these tops and skirts for $3.75 each and a Kate Spade purse for $4.00.  I’m going to assume it’s a designer-inspired purse and if you know how I can determine that, please let me know.
