Partial Victory For Colorado Democrats On Minimum Wage

Featured Image -- 3243

Originally posted on CBS Denver:

DENVER (AP) — A Democratic effort to raise the minimum wage in Colorado notched a partial victory Tuesday when the House voted to allow cities to raise the wage if they wish.

But the Democrats didn’t have enough votes to adopt a ballot measure to ask voters about raising the wage statewide.

The bill allowing local governments to raise the wage passed 34-30 on party lines, with all Democrats in favor and all Republicans opposed.

The second bill required a two-thirds vote because it would potentially change the state constitution. Republicans had enough votes to block the effort.

Even the passage of the local wage hike bill is a temporary win for the Democrats. The bill faces certain doom in the GOP Senate.

Colorado current minimum wage is $8.23 per hour.

Pre Game Playlist: “Spitting A Few Bars” With Jets Safety Calvin Pryor

New York Jets safety Calvin Pryor has one playing style, but many different styles of music.

?I would describe my music taste as a mixture,? Pryor said. ?People think I?m a rap guy, but I?m more of an R&B guy.?

Artists like Trey Songz and Chris Brown are a couple of Pryor?s favorites.

One hidden talent Pryor possesses that many do not know of is his ability to rap.

?I can spit a few bars if I?m in the studio or in the booth,? Pryor said.

Songs like ?Faneto? by Chief Keef and ?Big Daddy? by Nicki Minaj are two songs that get Pryor pumped up, especially before going to the club.

Pryor will rap along to those kinds of songs, but don?t count on him dancing to them.

?I won?t consider myself a dancer, but I go out to night clubs a lot with my friends,? Pryor noted.

“The Dress” Appears In Salvation Army’s Domestic Violence Campaign

Via NYDailyNews

The dress that fractured the Internet is now being used to heal.

The Salvation Army is using the now-infamous, arguably colored apparel to send an undisputable message about domestic violence.

“Why is it so hard to see black and blue?” the international movement’s South African arm tweeted Friday, along with a striking photo of a battered woman, wearing the now-distinct gold-and-white dress.

The beaten blonde is covered in black-and-blue welts, representing one out of six victims of abuse, according to the Salvation Army’s campaign to end the mistreatment.

“The only illusion is if you think it was her choice,” the message reads.

The ad has gone viral since it was posted Friday morning.

“We have been absolutely bowled over by the interest in this advert and the way in which it went viral,” said Carin Holmes, a Salvation Army…
