Obama Touts Minimum Wage Hike Plan In Connecticut
It's common sense, that's all http://marcmdbr.wordpressy.pl I'm trying to say. It's just common sense, Obama said in a campaign-style speech to about 3,000 people at the Central Connecticut State Kim Kardashian University, just outside of Hartford. After the speech, he was set to fly to Boston to speak to two fundraising events for the Democratic National Committee. Obama has proposed raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, up from the current level of $7.25, which he said would lift wages for 28 million people. Three-quarters of Americans agree it should be hiked. It would immediately raise millions of people out of poverty. It would help millions more work their way out of poverty. And it doesn't require new taxes, doesn't require new spending, doesn't require some vast bureaucracy, said Obama. Connecticut already has raised its state minimum wage above $7.25, and Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy is seeking to hike it again to $10.10.

Australia V Ecuador: Five Things We Learned
Thats not to be critical of Bozza, because just about home everyone watching was thinking the same, but early in the second half tweets declaring Australia could achieve the impossible in Brazil were hastily deleted and notes for Five Things Weve Learned columns were ever so slightly altered. Australias first-half display showed the way forward in the medium- to long-term, but regrettably the second half showed what it might be like in Brazil. In the first half Australia were given time on the ball and played a very intelligent brand of football, keeping possession well. But they struggled when Ecuador lifted the tempo and the Socceroos were never able to get their foot on the ball and take a breather. Spaces opened up and Ecuador got one back. continue From the kick-off Australia tried to keep the ball but played their way into trouble, went long to relieve the pressure, but turned over possession and within the blink of an eye Mitch Langerak made a rash challenge and was sent off. It all went horribly wrong for Australia, and in Brazil they will read here have to improve at taking the sting out of games.
