Re: “Push back from business community on KCMO minimum wage is underway

I own a brand new small business, and we cannot afford to pay that wage. I have invested all my savings, work 15-20 hrs every single day. I am on the line for this business, and it is stimulating local economy and local goods. When everything is all said and done, i don't even make $15 an hour, which is pretty typical for new small businesses.

Not only will we not be able to pay employees, it would probably kill our business. i suspect i'm not alone. That's going to be the effect of this: put a lot of small business out of business. As a result of less businesses, there are less people to pay $15, and more workers out of a job. It would completely backfire. I' am not saying people don't deserve a decent wage, but there are better ways.

Increase the EITC. This will be a job killer.

Re: “Push back from business community on KCMO minimum wage is underway

Any company that did those 4 bullet points would no longer get my business, and my guess is so would other socially aware individuals. So follow through with your veiled threats are your own peril KC Chamber.

Re: “Push back from business community on KCMO minimum wage is underway

Everyone should make $15 per hour. Regardless of education and ability. It can be easily funded by reducing the salary of everyone that makes more than $15 per hour. Step up Mayor James, reduce the salary of all city employees (including your own) and show your support.

Re: “Josey Records, out of Dallas, is coming to Kansas City

I don't see this as good news. I will continue to support locally owned record stores like Seventh Heaven, Mills Record Company, etc.

Air guitar is all about self expression, confidence, and all-around badassery. It takes giant stones to get on the stage and shred like its nobody's business. Air guitar is pretty much the coolest thing around and I'll be happy to lend either air drums or air bass for my shredder brethren.

Air guitar was funny and entertaining for about 10 min in the mid 1990s. Just my opinion. Discuss.

Re: “Sick days at Metropolitan Community College continue as its practical-nursing program is stripped of its accreditation

I work in the non-profit accreditation industry, though in a different field of study, so I'm familiar with some of the processes. I did some digging and it looks like this only affects the LPN program, not the RN program. In fact, the 2-year RN program is still accredited, having had their accreditation reaffirmed by ACEN in 2014. The RN Program isn't due for review until 2022.

As far as this whole "conditional" accreditation thing is concerned, Conditional Accreditation IS still accreditation. It's not unusual for schools or programs to have few areas that still need to see improvement, while most other areas are satisfactory.

Something this article doesn't touch on is the fact that there are no other LPN programs accredited by ACEN in Missouri. Anyone can verify this themselves at the ACEN website. MCC can't be the only school in the state offering an LPN, so why are none of the other accredited? If ACEN accreditation is so important, important enough for this article to have been written, one would expect other LPN program in the state to also be accredited. That isn't the case. So it may be that there is a perception, by MCC, that the value of accreditation for the LPN is low enough as to just do without it. That's not to say accreditation isn't important and doesn't have value, but if your competitors (other schools) don't care to have it, it may not be worth having that status.

And as aside, my mother is an RN and I vaguely remember her saying, not too long ago, that there's a push within nursing and the medical industry to move people towards RNs through the phasing out of LPNs. Hospitals want RNs who can do more, whereas LPNs are fairly limited to certain duties. I can't find any sources for this at the moment, unfortunately. Maybe someone else can.

Re: “Sick days at Metropolitan Community College continue as its practical-nursing program is stripped of its accreditation

Mark James was hired approximately 5 years ago and the LPN program was having problems then. Mark's knee jerk reaction was to upset the apple cart and make personnel changes as well as bring in expensive consultants. As you can see, that has all been very effective. No one should be impressed with conditional approval by the State, especially after years of working on the situation.

Re: “Bartender Paige Unger-Cline has traded mixology for motherhood and mortgages

Attitude? The only attitude I can see is someone petty enough to actually take the time to write something like that. I sat at Paige's bar for several years from her time at Blue Stem and Extra Virgin and she was nothing but enjoyable, friendly, and professional. Considering her major bartending accolades, notoriety and accomplishments (read: Paris of the Plains winner and two time Speedrack champion), I think the industry could use more people of her caliber. She will be dearly missed.

So sad to see such a talented lady hanging up her shaker tins, but I admire her focus on that precious family she and Phil have just started. Good luck on your future endeavors Paige!!
