That women can be on the same field at the same kind of Egypt's give the same college hoops player at the same level. There's been -- they have been a few up females kickers in college football was the first time but a female the fence about has been so. So are you ready for men and women to mix it up on the football field. Or should they always be separate whether any female sports that you really enjoy it for instance I love watching girls a softball -- watching girls basketball because.

Sure you'd like to increase today. But is anyone actually believe that at the start paying people another three dollars and hour the businesses will start cutting jobs. I mean that's businesses are not gonna take -- -- at war. They will have to pass the cost on to you so. Me my logic tells me if they raise the day for city employees to ten dollars and ten cents an hour. City servers please have to go up till now we get back to that question.

I could see it in. While proportional volleyball beat especially beach volleyball you'll like that. But I don't know but you I do not see men and women mixed and up on the same football field.

And -- 90878 but it comes to raising the minimum wage. -- -- -- Or a negative effect in the economy my feelings are if you increase the minimum -- I don't care whether to city. I don't care whether it's -- business some kind of way they're going to increase fees and ordered to pay that extra money. Companies are not just going to say when you know something. This is gonna cost me whenever a couple of a million dollars a year. And we'll just like about the problems that just doesn't happen for immediate thoughts on that. And I've I wanna hear from these sports does or whatever you guys who listened to -- and Bobby. And -- love saints football -- love -- -- football are you ready for men and women to mix it up on the football -- can you imagine. Can you imagine L issue. Having a female opponents but it runs out on the field of purple George. 618788668. At 90 it suddenly I'm Bob excellent pursuit on WWL and I'm Bob Mitchell interest -- Phone number to contact the show to talk things over what those those 26 or one point 78. 8668890. It's seventy text the at age seventy eights of a real -- your opinions on the subject cultural while now has its first female defensive back was today at 56. -- 140 pounds off valuable -- moral about about the school but I just want to get some generic thoughts on this she says she wants to be treated like one of the guys. A lot the same treatment a want to be hip and a lot -- just as hard. Is anyone really ready for men and women to mix it up. On the same field playing football. Is that is that even possible. And we also have our mayor. Mayor Mitch. Is proposing to pay hike to turn turn pro corporal city employees. That he says of going long wanted to creating a better city hall and providing better service to the public would you pay higher cities -- was pleased to give them arranged. Is the mayor now admitting we don't get good service though because they don't make enough. -- you -- how hard you worked at your job. On what you get paid up and get to the -- in the in in less than a minute by I'd do wanna take it and read a couple of these the attractiveness messages. It's always a woman wanting to play men's sports -- Can't play women's sports just confused. Well we do play we play basketball but you know we've built a lot for the women team -- pay hike. City Hall can't support their current budget -- they report higher cost businesses will cut jobs to raise prices. I have to agree with you let's go to Leo in coming to power yulia. -- And -- are are you ready. For men and women to play tackle football together. Mean he wants that I think you know and nobody -- -- will she. Early sounded a she's already signed a letter of intent you know socially she will be she will be a member of the up of the football team know in a well she actually. Debts to actually play you know whether she'd just becomes you know -- on the all time but do you think that men and women -- -- Aren't you afraid that if by a group of college level she can get injured. I'm content patent any -- to bite you. And yeah I mean I would find it I know. What about you would you little played tackle football the guys. That. Right now and the mayors talking about raising the minimum wage. To attend to and for city workers is this a good idea and why. -- Didn't act and different. And a year ago I. Attended. And agree. He went in them any kind. You make me. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That Kaka bag around and you had many -- Yeah. It's good time now that people are doing. -- in. England yeah. And it was me I'd say on the -- and hate. And kidney that it was in. It means waiting. And things. -- and and famine and actors and I actually had to grade and put him -- -- -- issue. -- you'd be seen as he. -- didn't. Have people in the fundamentally this continent. And and I am currently. Well I understand what you're saying because both my wife and daughter are both aren't. To me raising the minimum wage that much money. It it did a better person. What are you kids in the car. Got a -- that you can say that led me here is here. Here's what I'm afraid is going to happen and and lot of -- virtually the same thing. You raise the minimum wage but then you will be creased the number of jobs and so what's gonna happen in May be. Maybe that's a good idea maybe like you said baby the book that some although it'll weeds some of the lazy people out because little happened. Is that if they increase the minimum wage. They're gonna say okay we're paying you more but now you're going to have to do. A little more work and that bill so I think that it cost jobs they could think of it that got into. All the fast food jobs and all those all those people had the would get an increase in an in wage. Do you think the people like a McDonald's burger king and Taco Bell legal victory -- gonna pass that cost dollar to fire those people. And equipment. And -- Beat him. -- And me but at some -- them. And didn't. And it. And convenient. And that can happen. It can do and equipment and. -- politely -- thank you so much. You'd just go to Melvin and -- Melbourne what do you think you ready to see men and women playing tackle football in the same field. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Role of say 5640. Pound -- But someone on text committee and want to know what the vision and -- -- mobile. Division but the name of a college is Campbell's build university in Kentucky. And do you think about you you import bounced -- -- -- when you go across middle. What would be mostly as he did. Middle linebacker. -- to rise and fall for it. And in this story. Good ma. Man you know some things. That didn't. Some things we are actually out predictably. For agreed. And and -- call. When it expects one small. Cute but you can -- really cute and -- really actually takes its yeah. I don't like about what. What's gonna -- care. Now you know more for awhile we had today a semi pro female football team here. Some of those with men what I would wanna get on the field -- it's almost looked like they can really. Hit hard but that they say this young lady has has played well in. High school. And not a trial but the team and you know signed a letter of intent so I guess we'll have the C word development. I'm just against that in principle I'm against our principal men and women trying to play obviously and football field. And aren't too bad -- and so I'm you know -- Feel like you don't game should be in an up or shall we now -- -- -- I'm old school -- league you know and actually changed to small. I'm really -- yeah -- and but you go and now we're guy has a bit ago passed a strong. And you know I don't know even if she even though she were bigger in in -- let's look legislation was. I don't know. Of Nyhan and weighed 200 pounds I still don't think. That men and women belong on the same tackle football field. It. It gives teachers and recreation group -- you. -- -- It's in mind or. My sister lol I would do everything. -- -- can you imagine if you were a quarterback entry an acceptable earlier castles Coughlin averaged you'd feel that. -- let let let's talk about of the minimum wage increase. It is raising the minimum wage a good idea or a bad -- if you raise the minimum wage. Are you going to cut down to the number of jobs aren't aren't businesses that in a statement. But this is a budget they say we allocate this much money for salaries and so if you raise the minimum wage. Three bucks an hour. Don't you think at the bottom line is either UN are gonna pay for that -- war. They're going to hire -- people. That's important as them back from. Them and most of one. Nobody better. And -- people would these jobs yeah now now. And here's what comes back to rig. You it was straight what these guys were in order beat you at Wal-Mart. Some people because they -- -- and it is only one. If you go to a job but it's automatic bailout -- -- making -- -- Wrong. You nailed that tells you absolutely nailed it you're right. So many. If it comes down to two who are actually individual. Act like Eddie -- -- what can bet that. -- -- And we are women out there which goes with such. And I have yet to achieve one victory. Actually give up on a scalpel outrage you can believe -- about -- -- And what we do -- Caribbean -- Chris. For. -- really into court because of your ability to do. And get the girls back to -- when you mean when you go and I think we've got a job. This money and you're not going to go to -- and Africa. Tokyo and Korea. Britain does not stupid you my pretty New York.

Are also picking kick boxing on the dot on dot. -- into monitoring to mess around. With Neil Young guys bigger. And dale. And a woman to -- and -- -- -- fighting man. Watching over it too much you can't take it it'll be. So you do you think this could be a trend of this this is the first female that's ever. -- team as a defensive back 5640. -- which leaves a little small to the I mean a couple of players are talking about what -- she gets. You know plot by one of these middle linebackers and trying to -- -- play. Hey -- signed up for a certain. For me. So -- -- and I guess that I am asking is that. I can understand and I have no problem. Letting them try -- the do you really see down the road. Of future. For a female roles playing tackle football with the guys. Ha -- future. Like that -- one day when they can't compete with the men. And like at that scene. -- a lot of that activity. Maybe it should be in. They -- I've seen some some larger women play football.

Shouldn't the person who works for the people in the city at least the poverty level. I agree with that but you have to understand. That they have there has to be a certain amount of low paying jobs. If not all it's going to happen is they're going to reduce the number of jobs and then you can have these people on unemployment. You know Bob -- and agree with the anymore. Him. Deal or are really do understand what people feel like it should be paid more true. But at the same point. In. If -- -- not the same level. You also adding the poverty level or certain and it. Right. You know in in in so many of these things. Mind. -- in studio producer and board -- open -- Spurrier big job and there we know we have had this conversation.
