RICHMOND, Va. -- A Senate bill that would have raised Virginia’s minimum wage is dead -- much to the dismay of more than two dozen advocates who braved the cold to rally for the bill Monday morning.
Introduced by Sen. Rosalyn Dance, D-Petersburg, SB 1200 would have increased the minimum wage to $10 on July 1 and eventually to $15 in July 2021. It was defeated Monday afternoon in a 19-21 party-line vote.
“It’s been 10 years since Virginia workers received an increase in wages,” Dance said. “Meanwhile, the price of everyday goods continues to go up. In 2009, the average price for a gallon of gas in America was $1.78 -- today, it’s $2.41.”
There are 30 states with a minimum wage higher than Virginia’s $7.25 -- which is the federal minimum wage.
OG$ Point 🎯- Talk about a double edged sword ⚔️ . We are damn if we do damned if we don’t. If we raise the minimum wages to $15 a lot of mom and Pops businesses would probably close, along w other businesses cutting staff. But w the minimum wages not raising in the last 10 years it puts those workers at a huge disadvantage. Again w the dying U.S Dollar Everything has become inflated price wise. They are going to have to increase wages sooner or later to help workers combat these huge upticks in pricing. It’s Robbery

Snowboarding is definitely not a skill I have, my bruised tailbone can attest to that. But it sure was fun! I’m gonna need some hot buttered rum, light on the butter, to warm up. If you ever want to do winter sports or just watch other people do them (which I would recommend over the former!!), Wintergreen is the place to be!
Like a Kente cloth, YOUR SKIN is royal! 🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭
Made in Ghana, the kente cloth is an Akan royal and sacred cloth worn only in times of extreme importance and was the cloth of kings. Over time, the use of kente became more widespread. However, its importance has remained and it is held in high esteem by Ghanaians.
They come in many colors but what you see here is the popular traditional kente colors. The meaning of the colors are listed below;
Black: maturity, intensified spiritual energy .
Green: vegetation, planting, harvesting, growth, spiritual renewal
Gold: royalty, wealth, high status, glory, spiritual purity
In this image Royalty (kente) meets Royalty (Shea Butter) then meets Royalty (your beautiful skin/hair ) 🤩

Did you ever ask yourself why the lion is the king of the jungle ? It’s not the smartest, it’s not the strongest and it’s not the fastest animal in the jungle...but the lion believes it is capable of hunting any prey even animals much larger than itself and they hunt in pairs and observe their prey and stalk it for a while before ambushing. Mindset and strategic teamwork is much more valuable than anything else ! #Meow#anoudbag
