    Thumbs down No More on-Base Burger King or Barbershop!

    No more base barber and beauty shops. No more Burger King or Popeye's or pizza franchises or any other contractor doing business on a military installation.*

    He already has made noises about shutting down the commissaries. Now this?

    All because of King Barry's fiat – not enacted and signed legislation mind you – that they have to pay their*employees*$10.10 per hour.

    And, it's not just that. This means no more organized athletic program for the military and their dependents, or exercise*equipment, or support for social clubs and the like.

    I hope every single active duty and retired military reading this puts the jab to your Representative and Senator and urge them to undue this injustice. And, find out their stand on it, remembering it when you go to the polls.

    This is what I just sent my Congressional delegation:

    We already have enough problems in the military but now comes this:*

    No more base barber and beauty shops. No more Burger King or Popeye's or pizza franchises or any other contractor doing business on a military installation.

    Another of King Barry's fiats, not signed legislation mind you – that they have to pay their*employees*$10.10 per hour.

    And he already made noises about closing commissaries.

    Please, please see what you can do to stop this atrocity. Just think of the tens of thousands of low-paid military and their dependents who are going to suffer due to this.

    On-base fast food outlets get temporary reprieve from new wage rules

    The Labor Department has pulled back — at least temporarily — from new minimum wage rules that had led several fast-food restaurants to end their contracts on military installations and prompted others to possibly follow suit.

    Labor officials are “reevaluating” wage determinations for fast food workers and expect to “reissue industry-specific fast food wage determinations in the near future,” according to a departmental announcement sent to interested parties and contracting offices.
