  1. 10-21 8:15am Tommy, Ebola

    Tue, 21 Oct 2014

    You know David and I'm not in but it successful heart surgeon at blows save people's lives in the lateness Mattel girls. All yells out tell a single lady does Bartok yet exactly I'm sorry I'm just a simple country long way here but I Italian. Mum. First of its hard to keep realize street yeah this idea how about CEO of your massive company that. Yeah. See you liked one. Of new York new high tech company news hi tech startup idea and yeah. But already you've had offers from Google and you know about this about new startup now IPO. Only drew eight billion and we were open from Portland that's a yeah. That'll get your day and ailments he says light ripening camera with a fender that duct taped. Let's just say security and security reasons there's of people and ideas they can exactly you're out. I admit seriously and visible thing with what concerns me and I get a text here about the new protocol. Unable healthcare workers gonna have to undergo special training to demonstrate companies seen using protective equipment use of the gear. Now including coveralls and single use disposable hoods must be overseen by a supervisor. To ensure proper procedure those procedures are followed when caring for patients with people. And I guess that the question and I hand is you have to be health care professional to shoot these new protocol I would think. Protocols I would think you would be. And and the the gentlemen we can oranges now and says it's 67 hours of training it meaning he'll watch him one date to make sure they know about it. To do it and and I I always break things down to duck it would Howard to do this it's a great idea how are we going to do this because they are on the Frontline. En us that's all the Oxford street doctors and health care workers health care workers. Noting that if you are health care worker. I mean you know you can have the best of intentions but. Can you afford to go unless I'm missing something here can you afford to go to West Africa take whatever time it does do the training. Risk getting. And then after you do get back you look 121 days. In quarantine and believe that's what would happen if you go over there if your health care professional. Well I don't think a nurse can afford to do that you. Aren't all unless they brought I think there's probably going to be a monetary incentive. You know to get people ago I think you would have to you and if you're a medical health care professional I would like I'm not that there's got to kind of like a tortilla. About would you go. And Kenya afford to do that because I don't think a doctor unless these independently wealthy enough the in hi he got up and millionaire tonight give up his practice gasoline and he's got patience there she's got a patient cedar. So I'd like to talk TO about this welcome back maybe. Donna Edwards can channel light on this bit of a doubt because she's an organizer for benefit concert. For people research and only too well I don't know we'll see tell me if your health care professional. On here for amicus I don't know of anybody who can do that and where they gonna come from the need these huge. But how many people can actually. Afford to take that much time on their lives and on their bank accounts coming back and flinched at a W I Tommy Tucker got a real beautiful listening fall morning. Gotta take a couple of seconds enjoy that at least before you begin the grind. Clear cool low humidity to day highs around seven the 67 eaters so and then. Wins in the northeast five to attend a make it feel even cooler than that same for tomorrow. Maybe it's hand warmer than Thursday highs of 76. And Friday highs around 79 but clear and Brian. Is beautiful Donnie Edwards joins us right now she is the organizer for the benefit concert for people are re search. And relief that Tulane University morning Donna. I. Ansari. I'm doing well and you. Before we go down the wrong road. Our US health care professional or you just involved in promoting concert. I popular did it at his age and biomedical science diet program. And and I am embarked in court maybe put a battery. IT and the reason I ask you this and you may now wanting to get involved but. I you know I just wonder when it comes of the call for health care workers to help the people in West Africa. And teach them did the proper protocols. Who could afford. Be it a nurse or doctor I don't know what other healthcare professionals they want to guess biologists. To take that time off and go. And and risk Ebola then if they get it they're not coming back to the United States to be treated I don't think and 21 days minimum quarantine when you come bank. And understand who could afford to do it is. Great and I like your day by. We agree that the mayor and how care workers still actually sacrificed their time. I do you got a god bless him I just I don't know. Who could do it I guess when I'm sane. It is people and I guess it. Here they are basically zero. They era. In there Akron right there I mean how it or eight people that are devastating speculation has. And speaking of which you you're trying to raise some money. For that effort with a concert right. Yet that Adam Lee hit two lane has passed a dairy corporate partner really act. We can have a government hospital here early at least at the age and injury accurate banner on the front lines at the Ebola outbreak. Actually did and we are obligated to quiet her factored in there international. In effort. So in order to support that we are raking and start like state in part and protective equipment. Cricket in their IP little antibiotics. Aaron for curbing back in areas action. And merely personal protective protective equipment. Wicket that our and that is a map that you see on the news. Yeah they need a lot. PPE. Actually stopped from being effective in treating the patient. I see the note here on a Presley's biggest news of personal protective suits hospital workers caring for patients. Need to suits per day at a cost of tax dollars each but is that. If there are only treating one patient. But now. Dare they're treating high and it's a patient outline I need. Put him away and asking Donnie you wouldn't have to put on a new suit each time you treat somebody different. Is at a question once you are in the war. You have to learn that you get any actor or northern new. Yes of that the need for suits as a I generally I only I can't leave their only ten dollars each. Great and Adam. There are part international and it didn't allow that. You know they're an act that these type a supply rich hacker well it is spam act being acted. I'm in so we're really seeing two sidekick and then over personal protective gear that they need. And Adam. It. It can't dollar hurt in the end it typically wiper expects let me dollar per day and we can't he act. Ulbrich and rhetoric are at or near Leo. And so it's a it's. Celebrating Sierra Leone and it happens. Friday night at the new loans house of blues. I ain't me. The ask. We hear it in a car. A general electorate. War mean. An op silent auction rate can't grab. Odd day. In right and Mary dies down. There's a lot of damage. And we're all we're doing Iraq will battle it going to be a lot of land. One down in an app but it's something important there and mind. If for whatever reason summoning as a conflict may be the era. Maybe they're on to a wedding. Maybe date they have some work function that night meted to sit around at the dog and I don't believe how can make contribution otherwise done. I simply can't that we dealt by me I teach kids Arabic site at WW. W dot they'll bite me. Back flag. Celebrating. Sierra Lee now. Aniston is the difference in the spelling and he did you will go funny dot com get there. Gated. Don't I mean it is fair game the patent idea to electorate is celebrating Sierra Leon now they're celebrating your outlook that act. I represented at the yearly. And and we spoke to. Gentlemen a doctor from Tulane that dating you guys very involved in in trying to develop treatment right. Yes that doctor Robert the airy. Is actually that. Head of the viral hemorrhagic consortium of her and hear the RE opted to beat up but I am I ain't that program. So there's really accurate how does that do it at Tulane school and that it. He's been a West Africa as in. I knew yet. Says a connection between Tulane and what's going notable and I hope we can help you at 7 o'clock Friday 9 October 24. At the house of blues a lot of fun some great items have been on an if you would just like to. Or can't go to stay home Ratajczak noted www. Go on to me. Common and I guesstimate how you'd type in celebrating at Sierra Leone will come in but its capital list Somali capital L and parading. Sierra Leo and thank you so much done and done everything you deal and and god bless mantown at stuff for the people that are over there and and to try to get somebody to go now I think you're right those are real heroes do that. Thank you gonna have a great afternoon and a great day 24 time coded traffic. He. Threat yet and I talking about a full of 43 people including five of them kids now a lot of quarantine and Dallas after 21 days of monitoring. No signs of global. A judge says eight community and you look among with grace compassion nothing's wrong with them. I'm asking you would you if you knew somebody was return and your neighborhood your workplace a year kids' school it'd been quarantined with a bowl would you say you know what. It's over they don't have it just. Come on in oh lead at DO drink gift do you do whatever. And in terms of volunteers. There's different web sites and there aren't enough and it's an out of control quickly which means the military's gonna have to go win. So I would ask you if you remember the National Guard or member. A family member of a member of the National Guard you OK with them on West African Delphi edible right now time for them and WL first news for that. Go to David Blake we continue our conversation about a bullet and would you be concerned if if your neighbor or somebody you work with north. Maybe even some edit your kids' school was quarantined three bull has happened in Dallas and then you were found not to have it in at least in the community and judge here sizzler. Treat these people with grace and compassion. They have been through enough and I'm asking you would you know. And attacks comes in and of a serious ignited says if my neighbor was quarantine I would stay away from him and a drop off of potting number owners stoop. And run. Of its are not distances Tommy how can help a country where witch doctors. Still tell aids people in need of virgin Acura need raw animals that are carriers of disease. They parade their dead in the streets for days even those with diseased the un bury their dead on anniversary in feast with them. Some dance and party with them going to ordered to order relative disease. There's many cultures that are still doing clean unsafe practices. I don't Jordan auditing and one at the university you know. Yeah. Mickey the season. They look at him yeah. When one. They come from I don't know. No but anyway another one says timing in this series one about being healthcare workers with all those weights but Shelvin what is that. As a medical personnel was sec says. In the military including National Guard had no choice Abel told they will go if told and I guess it comes down to the question of whether York. The the nation is the world's police force is well as the nation's doctors. Other worlds doctor revenue and is on good morning Tommy is a position I answer your question about training no. We cannot afford the time and resources go to West Africa for Ebola precautions. As it strikes here we are more aware of the proper protocols and procedures training has already started at local hospitals we can't afford to get caught off guard. On this we've learned a lot of the missteps that occurred in Dallas. As well and then there's this one from a nurses absolutely I would go on also I healthcare professional way you know our and it would visit him daily bring them food. And attacked him from people who are ignorant and but I think it's. There's one issue of of morality and wanting to help and as another you can afford to jump Greg could you afford to take that chance I just son of a Doctor Who would closes office floor. Or is practiced for 68 weeks whatever it took I don't know of a nursing can afford to take the time off to do that. But I'd like to know and I would also like to talk to you about the French Quarter when we come back another person killed 5:30 in the morning. And a couple of video beatings as well when it's safe to being a quarter when it isn't that in a flash of a W. That is anything I think. It is being remiss. My great great grandfather today at Tucker said you know what. Don't ever be remiss. And I am remiss in a couple of things first off reminding you about are ready jaguar opinion apple. Which isn't going to try to be flippant or sarcastic or anything with this for trying to gauge where exactly you are in terms of priorities in your life. And a question and these numbers have been pretty consistent the answers and 6 o'clock. This morning what scares you more brain eating amoeba. Percent consent is concerned rather with brain eating a Meebo or being afraid of that. 28%. Are afraid of Ebola. And 56%. Are afraid of the saints' schedule. So give me Collie and answer that in 260187. Neitzel 3866889087. And again with apologies my great great great grandfather I was remiss. In reminding you about the national World War II museums victory big band concert. Other Libya once you and a guest to put on nude dance and use and swing to the sounds. Of swing from the war years reform by the national lowered to museums victory big band. And victory bells at the newly restored art Deco new loans Lakefront airport terminal. On Friday night. Of the candle Friday please let somebody yells when the ticketing and diner owner Dervis and gourmet dishes from the cnet's. Let's explore the air power expo which is a fleet of legendary World War II aircraft and an assortment of fighters trainers. And liaison aircraft all fully restored. And ready to fly so when you hear jet airliner by the Steve Miller band and I think you all know that sounds like. Negated a number to call and if you are color number eight you win. With the World War II museum and got a W well this happened. Very shortly attacks comes and I think it's time to start checkpoints in the French Quarter anyone can be checked. And I think there's more about it timing thing when it comes in the French Quarter is what got our attention. Two weekends ago I think it is somebody got. Held up armed robbery for 19 AM Sunday morning 3200 blocker royal. And twenty minutes later. And has captured on video for five guys attacked him in the 800 block of Saint Louis right by burden. That is not the bowels of the quarter at all and they get to. Women that are watch in his happened and I enough there are part of it or not but no shot no runaway now and other news watch him like. The lazy lucky dog on the street French Quarter while Lee's four miscreants beat this man senseless. Knocked him down level this property and money then this weekend. A a person was killed by drunk driver and a quarter when nom. When a drunk driver hit a Poland Italy was the pulled that kilter. And my question do you is is it safe to walk around the quarter late at night or early in the morning because sometimes will come in. Here at 4 o'clock in the morning and we'll see people's strangling home in areas of this anyway I've probably. Maybe it would be a little bit hesitant to walk in the daytime but certainly at 4:30 in the morning and and not in control myself as some drop. Not that I drink anymore but back in the day. And here to me is the conundrum. I think part of deal lore of new long ones is that you can come here. The bars don't close at two you can drink until 430 if you want an angle back the hotel rooms sleep it off start all over. But if it's not safe. To do that. Should you somehow warn tourists evidence say you know what. He put a sign up percent and urges with the counts here saying. If you go I'd take a cab back from wherever you are don't leave Teague at camp say if it's after midnight or if it's after 1 o'clock. And house will would you tell friends who were visiting the French Quarter I'd tell mullah. If yet on out by 1 o'clock. I would be very careful about where you go because it's. It's like in the old west where the to distract voters are gonna get caught and and salted so tell me how you would handle Hannity 6018780386. Exit 89087. In. Now I know because. I wouldn't be comfortable walking around a quarter for 35 o'clock in the morning. And again this is not an area deepen in the dark dank. The debt and I mean that pejorative Lee but he in the in the area where people aren't aren't this is too aren't there this is Saint Louis. Very close to burden where four guys jump on this other guy beating. And two women standing there with a deck cores or whatever it is and hand his watch it like it's part of the she'll wait 51. Nine before nine time look at Traficant for that we go to terror Robinson. 857 Tommy Tucker let's congratulate Steve Newman gave just one appeared tickets of the national World War II museum's air power swing. At the new loans Lakefront airport Friday night tickets valued and a 150. Smack her studies. And you didn't when you want more information call 50452. Late 1944. Or visit www. National world wars Berkeley national. WW two museum dot org is it. Matters they voted their www. National WW two museum Dodd award. It will have another chance we'd win tickets. All week long here with us in the morning good luck in the national World War II museum. And WWL. We still have a Drew Brees domination teacher to give away. It was born right here in new long ones. And if you win a T shirt you get a a Drew Brees nine brand domination teacher but even if you don't win it you can join drew when the domination movement. Abide domination T shirt go to your neighborhood Winn-Dixie your shop online now at again it matters and I any brand. Dot com not the normal but spell it out and I EU and I any brand dot com for every teacher sold. One dollar goes a great cause the second harvest food bank on Thursday we giveaway shirt that is actually signed. By Drew Brees and when it comes to calm. The quarter being a safe place late at night the the most recent deaths Lou is really sad young lady named Taylor McDonald they before her birthday Sarah fiancee says he was gonna propose. That night and both for they decided to go to the quarter a mother reminded her do not drink and drive. But she says she forgot to one in this young lady that there are other people out there they drink and drive about 5:15 AM Sunday morning. The alarm and gone in on our friends Walken and a quarter trying to find nick Carr see slightly minder friends 400 block ever Gundy. And they hear a crash in a banger frenzied turn around. And see airline owners comic with their hand on her head. And she got hit in the hand nets were killed. Don't driver's seat tell me what what what's what's the the out time for the quarter where you would feel safe I would feel. Very on hesitant to say they're after 1 o'clock and if I had people visiting from out of town and so on talent you know like. Go have fun stay with the crowd and get out by one. What would you say and is that gonna hurt the reputation in new loans if A you can drink all night if you don't be safe betting home by 1 o'clock back and slash WW.

Are coming aboard your calls about a minimum wage raising the minimum wage and -- minimum wage workers relieved to -- raised -- -- -- project opinion Paula you can give your opinion. -- going to be if you don't count dividends at the grocery store yesterday and I saw this this little kid. In one of the shopping carts. It has like the plate car -- -- -- -- true we did the steering wheel yeah and they and the impact there were two of them in the one that ice on they were both working in the steering -- this kid is like making choices like a car. His daughter on the order if this kid hits me I'm -- more sport are you out. So it occurred to me though that we think about all of the the ways that young people were influenced. Why is there no concern. That these grocery cart callers might be introducing kids to the idea under each striking. Mean you know you wanna have candy cigarettes anymore because it might teach kids to smoke alone. I don't know by Hubert I'd enjoyed candy cigarettes were prosecuted -- pretend I was smoking like my mom and dad and I'm not a smoker. On -- again it's Shirley temples and Roy Rogers which was kind of fake cocktail mock mock -- I guess you would say -- when we go out because we were pretending. Two. So that'd -- add up all these little things you might have something but we're but where's the concern about these these grocery. Cart cars why wouldn't this encourage underage -- drive actors a lot of fun though. When -- that -- I was that would have that when I was again. I hide decision -- -- needed unity it's like to once the go to the grocery department God's sakes that is you know you got it we got that -- think that you're straddled the usually get a rash and and there are arms -- -- -- real -- room but I mean -- it though it's not easy to is not easy to navigate the house that some of those things are kind of line. But I just I thought about that lets not over react to -- influences of things in society because if that really is a concern. And those -- -- cart cars should be banned because it might introduce kids to injury strike you know I can't remember whether I like I guess the Shirley Temple should've gone to girl and then the other guy got that he Roy Rogers. I'd putt well I grace. And yours and -- unchanged or some people wouldn't be surprised that I occasionally surely tell because. You wouldn't go. Out of the Shirley Temple if I'm not mistaken winners was 7UP and -- And in the Roy Rogers was coking and -- Something I don't know it looked like a mixed drink to me -- and we were imitating her parents which at that time was not necessarily a good thing. And I used to watch. I used to get the the candy cigarettes. And I'll eat it down so we get smaller so I actually felt like I was smoking it. Oh yeah yeah really get the image going do you watch mad men never watch -- show I have seen it yet. Okay very if you -- mad men which took us all through the sixties I think they're like 69 almost seventy at the -- That the smoking is unbelievable and to drink and the drinking is one nominal and that I didn't line my dad's generation. It's. Right in the office of you know the bottle of -- here in the urban there. And it doesn't matter there is also lost all day long and -- hidden on the secretary's yeah. That doesn't happen like that and I guess it's still those minutes -- -- Aristotle. -- if you are holed. And state witness if you wanna join our comments about the minimum wage is -- blog today is titled that the mentality of minimum wage workers. It's our our FaceBook page of the -- radio it's also on our website at WW dot com. I'm bothered by the ideas that. Minimum wage workers who don't deserve it would end up getting a race as a lot of people -- label me as a liberal. And and they wanna call me a liberal as if it's a bad thing. But I can't honestly call myself a liberal because of of of issues like this. I strongly opposed. Anything other than a strong work ethic. Leading to. Compensation. And so if that's my attitude I can't actually call myself a liberal as much as beneath you want me to myself. Hard work is the only way to get ahead. And there are businesses. To talk to somebody and -- in the -- here an account executive. Who who does very very well here WB well she worked at McDonald's and she's in McDonald's takes care of their people there are businesses. Do train and demand excellence from their employees. Why are there so many. Tolerate. Total apathy in the workforce. Our numbers 2601870. Toll free 86688. -- early seventy protection of Richardson seven. Mark your comments coming up next on studio for -- Tucker. Whatever WL I always talking a moment ago see this that the kids in this story yesterday. NEC one of those grocery shopping carts it looks like a car. He's making noises in order on the corner. And I think this is gonna cause people to think about under aged writing is my set a bad example. Here's a Texas says. Please don't talk about the shopping cart race cars someone will get the idea to put speed cameras. In the grocery store I'm skewed in four Tommy Tucker here's a quick update on WTO pretty general opinion poll also talking about a right now. To minimum wage workers deserve a race 67% say no 33%. Say yes coming up in the next -- we're gonna talk about freedom of speech a police commissioner in New Hampshire finally resigned. And he refused to apologize for using the N word in referring to President Obama. Tended the president meets all the criteria. That he has. For the definition of the inward. So has this police commissioner lost his freedom of speech. We'll talk about that in the next hour we're talking about the minimum wage. Workers demanding a raise his summer demanding fifteen dollars an hour. I sorted out a minimum wages and medi if you did. And I never thought that this was a ways to I appointed to lift. Here's a comment on our FaceBook page this is part of the conversation FaceBook it to be a dual radio from plants minimum effort equals. Minimum wage. Here's attacks on to protect your calls -- I know worker at a fast food place. And she said she deserves a raise because she has a baby. She also said that she often feels like spitting in the food out of anger. So wait that's the minimum wage worker you wanna give a race to. -- from prairie field -- here under the WL. More. Just ordinary comment on that issue all wage yeah all of the order of things in my mind Pete why could -- -- set -- As just that it should sort it all you know. First due respect you dirtier play TPC. In it -- -- boat raced to the war room. Try to update. Also -- a letter to control. Or so. Now you're you're not suggesting that somebody get a race just because they've done the job for certain amount of time. You know dog I really. You let people all. Yeah I would agree and an end and part of the reason that that doesn't happen it's because of American greed and and the -- of business owners from a gonna get to a traffic update heroically to call. That is it truly one of the problems and we should as consumers we should plead with business owners. To reward those employees to do an outstanding job. And in theory in the in the marketplace. Would not that make that company the company that did good employees wanna work for. And then other companies would be stuck with the worst employees. But ultimately if companies lost business because they replaced were so apathetic. Wouldn't that forced them in the free market society wouldn't that force them. To ultimately. Do a better job training their employees. If you go to George for your comment on numbers 2601870. Toll free 8668890. Point seven. Our text overstates their creativity once coached in the morning for Tommy Tucker will be right back -- more after this WWL traffic update the terror. Okay how many times he's going to move the business. And you see the group of minimum wage workers who were just happy. And enjoy what they do. Don't know everybody doesn't have to be happy it worked and I am sympathetic of those who -- are trying to attempt to make ends meet. And I am sure if you know I've been through some very tough times in my life recently. But the only thing that that life or people can't take from -- If your commitment to excellence. You work ethic. And if some companies are able to find train and maintain. Quality. Workers minimum wage workers. Then why are some companies. Allowing. Total apathy. In the workplace. In other parts of the country. It's not as bad as it is here. And and part of that just might be our culture. But everything about our culture isn't right. I'm from here born here grew up here. But it also traveled and lived around the country and there are minimum wage workers in other parts of the country that collectively as a group. Are different from many minimum wage workers here. And there just seems to be such a tolerance for mediocrity. On -- you're -- WL. -- -- Which. You know. People minimum wage. We can't expect much from. Alone. You know -- gave -- even companies and work excellence. Because. You know it. It. So it may -- On. A wager you. People. It. You can -- in. In in theory than there are businesses mad right now that have a better group of minimum wage employees that the businesses. And if they are able to do it all across our businesses do that yeah. I'm not so sure that somebody is -- the people that I see in the workplace. Who. Just seem to be doing the absolute minimum. I think we lost contact with with -- The people who were doing the absolute minimum I'm not convinced. That if you give them -- raise. They're gonna wanna do anymore. So theoretically. If consumers. Went to businesses stop going to businesses they didn't have good employees. And and rewarded the businesses that had good employees. That ultimately that should forced every business to do a better job training their employees -- you know let's think about. How this country was built. This country was not built. By lazy apathetic individuals. Who thought they were entitled to something. This country was built by individuals we dedicated to getting the job done right. No matter what it took to do the job to build America. And that's the America we should expect. Today that's which we should expect out of ourselves we should expect that out of each other. So let's say to this conversation. What was the worst a minimum wage job. You ever had it. If you're gonna join our show this morning with a comment on numbers 2601870. Toll free 866889. Here which semi -- Amber's late 77. Also this morning we've been talking about more cycle is on the streets of New Orleans. And in the suburbs. More designated by planes but still a lot of tension between cycle Austin motorist. And we can throw pedestrians in the -- well so what are your vote pedestrian motorists -- are a cyclist. Who do you have problems with on the road. And it came up earlier and I IC downtown all the time. Cycle list. Don't always debate the basic rules of the -- should cyclist. Be forced to stop at red lights. Should cyclist follow the rules of the road if you wanna join -- -- with a comment about any we're talking about our numbers 2601870. 38668890. Point seven at a text numbers eight Soviets have. It's 830 and a beautiful Tuesday morning but it's going to be warm today. And scoot into Tom Tucker it here's David Blake with a WWL news -- identity of the day -- assisted descent big box placed it in Metairie and it it it. It's so bothered me that this. This employee took so long to get around the counter she was our phone first of all there was nobody in line. And I walked up and I'm already put my stuff down on account our parents or your stops on the -- what's she doing she's on the phone she's on the phone. At the straightening up the candy. Alter -- study that she's on much she's on the same site normal are all casually. While on the phone. Walks around. And gets off the phone casually walks up to the cash register doesn't greet me. And I said. Would you like to go to another registered. And writer David that she got that -- -- and I don't expect people to. Treat me like -- king now iron but it bothers me that there are so many apathetic. Minimum wage employees. And these of the employees that want a job to do I really think these employees are gonna suddenly start to do a better job if they get a race no. They're kind of the -- you know three dollars more in our. Are they suddenly going to be you know Yassir and -- got power you do day I don't think so and I think the way you get a race. Is to do a good job and I would plead with business owners to reward those employees that do a great job because in theory in the marketplace. That would lead to people the best employees warning to work.

The 300 anniversary of new worlds were actually older than this country. I've Christie Garrett is there we're gonna bring that new -- lives right here on WWL. If you don't have us on your phone -- on your phone. You'll hear that information as soon as it happens and we'll talk about that tonight's whenever the decision is we'll talk about them on the -- showed tonight. Eight to midnight also to -- -- The fast food restaurant. Is telling customers. Don't bring your guns. Into the stores. Is an infringement a Second Amendment Rights. We'll talk about that fungus could show tonight here's a quick update on our WWL pretty jaguar opinion poll. Do minimum wage workers deserve a race 65%. Saying no and 35% say a -- your opinion by going to WWL dot com. I'm from New Orleans Lloyd you're under VW -- good morning. Don't call regular comment. About all of you worked in the not only. Went about -- What these guys really the word out there stall and -- long way. And there are only. Two years nine -- didn't turn out. -- We're. -- those. You know long. Yeah and I think that would be an injustice. Exactly and -- -- Economically doable -- -- don't make a pretty well tomorrow. Error won't formally goes. -- -- -- -- -- -- So that all of us. Yeah I mean even before even the businesses. That are making a fortune. C will not shared their profits. Their employees if they have to pay employees more they get a pass the cost on to you there is good and there's bad about the greed. That is built America. You know. The Olympic ample shop for the first -- -- That it all so and so it went back into it wouldn't know well. Accomplished what they can. Well I'm going to call to have a great day. Tight from Slidell lucky you're WW dog -- locate. I make it more. If I'm called to reflect the idea that McDonnell's -- biggest company in the group. Which the seal who takes home 4000 dollar an -- -- should discuss that. I'm able should discuss the fact that we the taxpayers. Have the supplement -- income. Because they don't wanna pay a living wage we have to -- other -- slippery but the food stamps and all that our people one way or the other. That's out of begging and pleading corporations to ship well as you say why not force them to wanna say this is the cost of doing business school American consumers. He got Big Apple CEO. Takes home a million dollar a day. In my extra letter sent except million dollar a year but yet these ships all the factories to China. So that pollute freely and ship it back to America so that broke the crisis. What we call it capitalism that's not -- -- protect our people. And the way you protect the -- a living wage. Well I I understand this argument it is CEOs are audio for page sure he can be argued did entertainers and athletes or are overpaid as well. There is great injustice in the system. The with a free enterprise system I'm not exactly sure how we reconcile that problem. It's very simple you separate -- That's set a couple of -- company cannot make more than that the bottom talks are accompanied by a certain. Well know it was two under and very time. The -- state between the CEO full time worker in 1980. Now coached by -- -- terms limit and -- is going to be out in terms. And it's my understanding announcing its its a lot different in Japan and other countries the ratio between the lowest paid workers in the highest paid workers in our I realize that this is a real. Sore spot and I'm I'm I'm not sure how. With our constitution and our free enterprise system I'm not sure low -- how we can and make it a law at its CEO skilling aren't so much. Belt but that that point it would cause of the CEO of the company to truly share their way to look at people actually create the well. I'm not sure how we are not sure we how important product I'm not sure how -- I'm not sure how we pass that legislation in America. And on about -- because -- all the other corporations. But it won't pass but we don't have anti trust we don't have anything you got to travel back all the worker rights we have a government that protects big business from people. That's been a government that protects people from big business. As I said there -- Now there's there's good and bad about the greed that -- a free enterprise system. -- on patrol that's what the issue and then he insulin but not that not only in the you know that the problem what we got afraid or come out way too big to fail. But yet every year we hear about that cooperation and cooperation and that cooperation. To a point where now it's too big to fail. You got to have a government -- that protects the people they interest people about people one way or the other all these people call the same dirt gets raising minimum wage. Understand you the taxpayer pay that minimum wage worker 26 point 9%. Of which are on food stamps. So you can say you know sports. McDonald and everybody else to pay a living but you'll pay for that the taxpayer. The formidable new attacks that are you're you're paying for the -- you're paying for their corporate welfare. I appreciate your call and in the same way -- I'm concerned about that disparity I don't know what to do about it in our our free enterprise system. Legally in terms of legislation. And again the other fundamental problem I have is. Giving. A raise. To minimum wage workers. Who simply don't deserve it. And there are many who don't deserve it but we would require businesses in an ideal world we would require businesses. To. To not be so greedy that they don't reward workers. That are better again I mentioned the -- was in there are other businesses that other businesses that. They do a really good job hiring training and maintaining a quality minimum wage staff. So why can't more businesses do that. If your -- stay with a -- -- in the morning for Tony Tucker will be right back with more of talking about minimum wage and I know UC and I see him all the time minimum wage workers who really don't deserve a raise it and I'm not convinced that these minimum wage workers are gonna suddenly do a better job if they get paid more. I'm getting some response to a caller we had just a moment ago was talking about the disproportionate ratio between what CEOs making minimum wage workers. He's talking about legislation that would require that ratio to be a lot closer. And confused as to how we do that in a free enterprise system with a constitution. I'm thinking socialism I'm thinking communism and is is that this with the revolution of Russia was about. Everybody. Made almost the same except except the government and that really didn't work. Here's detects a reason this guy is right on however I think this station's audience are really always leans to the right. While there are a lot of people who think I don't lean right very often on many things that on this particular issue. Think about those workers. That are not applying themselves. Do you think more money per hour is gonna suddenly turn them into conscientious workers. For Tim I don't know when your under the WL. Yeah you -- let them and ultimately reduce. Because -- game in here so yes they'd be out -- he can. Andy yeah it was on the phone at least they didn't mean that I'm standing at about -- it -- unit count. You wouldn't that get up to -- I don't -- leaning toward it but now she wouldn't get that. An act that they've made earlier and he -- -- in the department any agreement. I've been -- -- prematurely. Did you get the impression that she was on a personal call or business call. -- none -- -- that Colin exactly what you zone. Look at the business go with the network it admit. And -- it's it's a shame you shouldn't have been no treated like that. I. I. And they act immediately work to look -- it -- -- And then their corner exit you McCollum. -- note that eloquently. Yeah. We've achieved debt and to -- and keep it in music. Well I think as consumers know and I think we need to do a better job. Complaining about employees. That don't do a good job in -- pathetic that -- applying themselves in in the workplace because. If if management knows and they don't fire the people then Shimon management. If you're management if management doesn't know that there -- I can't imagine I can imagine being a manager and not knowing that you had to totally apathetic co workers were before. Sought a -- were treated that way but do we need to do a better job of completing your -- and. Every good Erica. It wouldn't be we undercut him. Q let me. Have. No and I've got to get to -- news break I really appreciate you calling you have a great day here's a quick update on our WWL party general opinion poll. -- minimum wage workers deserve a race 64% say no 36% say yes. If she opinion by going to WW real jobs I'm stoked if Tommy Tucker we'll be right back with war on to him well.
