Re: “Why Don't We Outsource Rich People?

I was thinking of all the concessionaires in the Great Smoky Mountains since it is closer. They are all small and independent.

Re: “Why Don't We Outsource Rich People?

I have been waiting for Betsy to comment on this...

Betsy, you should really look at the National Park Service. That is what most of this is modeled against. Concessionaires bid to run the facilities and are responsible to their upkeep and in many cases the construction. This promotes a whole string of small businesses in usually economically depressed areas (sadly the areas around National Parks and Forests are depressed due to the lack of economic development and tax income).

They do not take care of the roads and trash pickup, but hey that is not included in the state plans either.

We must protect this collective!!!!

Poor Pinkston, he still thanks hatred of people and groups willing to try to improve a dismal situation is an actual solution. Bless his heart. Status quo sucks for the people below the line there Pinky.

Re: “#MayoralChatter: Former Nashville Mayor, Governor Phil Bredesen Endorses Mayoral Hopeful Megan Barry

I usually wait to find out who the MNEA endorses in board races before deciding who to vote for (or in this case against).

Re: “TDOC Officers Rail Against New Schedule, Correction Commissioner At Legislative Plaza

This sounds more like a problem with the users of the new computer system at the state. They have a history of intentionally dragging and fouling things up in order to get back to their decades old systems, particularly in payroll. There is one switch that creates pay factoring adjustments for large lump sum payrolls but it sounds like they are not using it for you. Even then there are limits. Most employees I have ever dealt with over withhold so they can "win" a bid refund.

Filling out a new W4 with an eye toward maximizing take-home and minimizing the refund is the smart way of doing it but very few actually do that.

Re: “What We're Doing to Prison Guards is Evil and Assholish

By law overtime for public safety employs working a 7 day cycles begins at 43 hours. Not much of a HR person are you? This stuff is out there. Please review the documentation provided in the APA "Blue Book" for all laws regarding the fair and legal payment of the brave men and women working for our communities as public safety officers. I sure would hate to see these folks get hurt by treating them like clocked, non-exempt forty hour employs
