They will be too busy looking for non-existent jobs in our new Spain-like economy, Alfred. Tongue

You people never seem to grasp that things like the minimum wage, like a well intentioned but poorly designed contract law, can become a negative for the very people you seek to help when taken too far or poorly written. 

Case in point, that clause b thing in Fritzcare that Nixy baby's been moanin about for the last month.

WE seem to be speaking different languages these days, Nix baby. Tongue


We have numerous issues where scientific process is being trampled upon, my point is we need to restore the credibility of science in general rather then picking and choosing the politically hot areas of concern only to then foist upon them without any concerns for theo thers.
