    [QUOTE][I]Gender-inclusive restrooms and have become more and more common across the country.

    Now, the city of Berkeley is taking it a step further.

    The city is removing gender-specific words in its municipal code. It will cost the city about $600 to make the changes. The Berkeley City Council unanimously passed the measure to replace more than two dozen commonly used terms on Tuesday.

    My alma mater UNC doesn't use the term Freshman any more because it's not gender neutral. They call those students First Year now. SMH

    polling says 100% of respondents agree

    actual news we should be talking about-

    House passes bill to hike the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour

    The House passed a bill Thursday to hike the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour in a win for liberal activists who have long pushed to give low-wage workers a raise.

    The Democratic-held chamber passed the plan in a 231-199 vote. Six Democrats opposed it, while three Republicans supported it.

    The measure would gradually hike the U.S. pay floor to $15 by 2025, then index further hikes to median wage growth. It would also phase out lower minimum wage paid to tipped workers.

    House Democrats view the legislation as a core piece of their agenda to boost pay and economic growth. As President Donald Trump runs for reelection in 2020, the party argues strong economic growth and a roaring stock market have not done enough to lift the workers who most need relief.
    i assume the senate, and maga if it reaches that level, will put the kibosh on this.

    thots?

    Natural gas is much more cleaner than electricity. Not to mention that California is mainly powered by plants running on.... natural gas
