    Default Right-to-work amendment passed in Alabama Senate

    I don't think any of us would find this surprising.

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The Alabama Senate has passed legislation reiterating Alabama’s position as a so-called “right-to-work” state.

    Senators on Thursday passed the amendment 25 votes to 9. Alabama voters will now have the chance to approve the amendment at the ballot box.
    Alabama law already has the prohibition, but Republicans said adding the amendment to the state Constitution will give businesses additional assurances.

    In a debate on the Senate floor, Minority Leader Quinton Ross, a Democrat, called the amendment “asinine” and a waste of time and money. Ross says lawmakers have more important issues they should address.
    I agree with Minority leader Quinton Ross.

    Governor Blocks $2.85 Minimum Wage Increase After Giving Staffers $73,405 Raises

    Too early in the morning to read this stuff!
    When the city Birmingham, Alabama voted last month to give its lowest-paid workers a $2.85 raise, Republican Gov. Robert Bentley signed a bill banning Alabama cities from raising their minimum wages at all. Now, news has emerged that Bentley recently gave four of his cabinet members $73,405 raises — an 80 percent increase from the $91,000 salaries they were making previously.

    One of the beneficiaries of the raises, Alcoholic Beverage Control Board Administrator Mac Gipson, argues his previous $91,000 salary wasn’t sufficient to attract the best talent from the private sector. But an author of the bill that gave Bentley the authority to raise cabinet members’ salaries in the first place says the 80 percent boosts are “outrageous.”
