There is way too much to unpack here that can’t fit into one comment. Workers rights mean you can’t get fired just because your manager has a bad day; there has to be cause. It’s designed to prevent exploitive behavior at the threat of being fired Min wage hikes means consumers have more money. This is good because we live in a consumer-based economy. This means that business earn more money from the higher consumption. This means businesses can pay more consultants more money to do more things. This means there’s way more tax revenue. This means the gov has more money to pay consultants more. Google “velocity of money”

This is an oversimplified view. Living wage is important but to what extent? $15-20 probably a net benefit but a $50 minimum wage would destroy small business, skyrocketing unemployment, and lead to double digit inflation. Google “Venezuela”

Unions do some good in some industries and a lot of harm in other industries. Some of the worst unions are teacher unions, police unions, and construction unions. My dad is unionized at the supermarket he works at, and the union's big battle this year was against his best interest.

Deciding between two apartments and appreciate some opinions 1: in Flatiron (walk to Union Square but on a quiet street) 2: in Brooklyn Heights (walk to the promenade) Both studios. Similar price. Lived in Chelsea and Gramercy Park. So I’m familiar with the 1st area. Haven’t lived in Brooklyn Heights. The neighborhood itself seems nice but it is close to downtown BK which is very sketchy to me. I’m 27 F. Love both quietness and nightlife. Thoughts? Esp. on the life in BK heights?
