quote [ A Missouri man with a long history of spouting anti-Semitic rhetoric is suspected of shooting to death a boy and his grandfather outside a Jewish community center in Kansas City and a woman at a Jewish assisted living facility nearby. ]
Police are investigating this as a hate crime. Basically he was asking people if they were Jewish before shooting them. He has a long history of racism, and advocating violence against black and jewish people.

quote [ The suits allege that McDonald's has forced employees to work off the clock, not paid them overtime and struck hours off their time cards. "We've uncovered several unlawful schemes, but they all share a common purpose -- to drive labor costs down by stealing wages from McDonald's workers" ]
Being paid minimum wage is bad enough. Being paid minimum wage, being scheduled for short shifts which maximize travel time for time worked, being shorted on time, and then being hit with uniform expenses on top of all that? Not fair at all. I hope this lawsuit succeeds and results in more equitable working circumstances.
