  1. It’s time to rethink how businesses are established.
    if you cannot pay a living wage and keep your workers/customers safe – CLOSE YOUR BUSINESS.
    All these business owners complaining about how they got away with being the worst of the worst and can no longer get away with it makes me sick.

    1. @Censorship Is real if you can’t pay your employees a living wage, you don’t deserve to be in business, pretty simple and you don’t have to be a business owner to understand that, even though my family does own a business.

    2. @A P learn a trade. If that’s the only thing you can do. Then it’s not the employers fault. That’s on you. Make better choices in life.
      When I started I was paid 5 bucks a hour. In a trade heavy equipment operator. Stayed in for 35 years and retired this year at 53 making 75 a hour.
      So make better choices. And you won’t have to worry about it.

    3. @A P you people think just because you show up you should be paid top dollar. That’s not how it works. You don’t get trophies for showing up. Prove yourself and you’ll get paid more.

    4. @Censorship Is real You are missing what we want from minimum wage, we think if we show up, we should be paid a LIVING WAGE, as in, work 40 hours a week and be able to support yourself with the cheapest options available in your area. Cheapest apartment, cheapest food, cheapest healthcare, cheapest everything, AND WE STILL CANT DO THAT, WE CANT EVEN GET THE CHEAPEST STUFF, much less “top dollar”. You are the absolute worst and don’t even understand how it’s changed since you started in the workplace. Stop telling people your opinion on minimum wage since you haven’t been in poverty for 30+ years, and it literally doesn’t affect you.

    1. @K Lak Here in Canada it is illegal to use your medical identification for anything other than authorized medical services. Our medical ID cannot be used for taxes, credit information, voting, etc. My health card is only ever used for healthcare.

  2. Get over it Bobby, you should want to save the lives of your customers and neighbors. Do the medically responsible thing and enforce the rules!!!!

    1. @Scientific Methodologist It’s so cute how your profile means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. A year of proof for the vaccines. Grow up!

  3. There needs to be proof of vaccination in every corner of America,
    North, South, East, and West.

    1. So you can keep the 80 percent of blacks that are not vaxxed segregated? The party that never changed

  4. People are going to need security at the doors. Bouncers. Look at how people are acting right now. Violence and mania… Either way things are going to change I guess. I still will be staying home people are nasty.

    1. Only 20 percent of the black polulation vaxxed. The white liberal is happy to push segregation, again.

    1. @James Smith Are you going to volunteer and try to make me? I didn’t think so keyboard warrior..😀

    1. True and sad. But really I’m not interested in eating inside a restaurant where customers are not vaccinated. Make vaccines mandatory already.

    2. @Carrie Fox if you are vaccinated you need not worry lol🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

  5. Finally some people speaking truth to the b******* that’s going on around this country because the Democrats have their little Power Trip

    1. @Carrie Fox why? So then i can travel to your town and spread tourism money around? No thanks, im staying where Im at.

  6. Good! I wish every businesses did that. Help the cause, keeping everyone safe is and should be first priority! 👍

  7. Smart brother he see the con job this mayor is trying to pull. He’s trying to cater to the fast food industry and put restaurants out of business. And or he could be just f..cking nuts. Because really Wtf will that change? People eat fast food anyway or cook, who Tf eats dinner every night at a restaurant??? Standing Ovation to you brother.
