Those of you who know me know that there are a handful of brands I love so much that I shill them perpetually on my favorite social media channels: Fireball whiskey, the Gorilla Workout, Amtrak, and of course Jimmy John’s, home of the best sandwich in the entire world, the Number 6 With Pep.
I order Jimmy John’s more than I care to admit; at $8 for the sandwich and the freaky fast delivery, it’s an extremely justifiable expense, plus there’s a long stupid Proustian thing about how the sandwiches remind me of adult independence and happiness that I just don’t want to get into right now. (To make a long story short: some of my most formative moments occurred in the company of a Jimmy John’s sandwich, and I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that keeps happening.)
Which is why I regret to inform you that two Jimmy John’s employees have filed a lawsuit against Jimmy John’s, to wit:
While the president's proposed plan to increase the federal minimum wage to $10.10 languishes in a divided Congress, the Upshot's Jared Bernstein reports that as many as 34 states may propose minimum wage increases
on their ballots this year. Who would benefit from an increase in the minimum wage? Bernstein looked at the numbers.
So OKComrade is currently a Facebook page
, though they hope to turn it into an app soon. It is unfortunately not as tongue-in-cheek as I had hoped. Lots of photos of cats, though.
