HCDCC Communication and Education Committee (CEC) tackles Klamath River and Living Wages Ordinance issues.

The HCDCC CEC waded through tons of information on the Klamath River problem and came to the conclusion that we needed more input. The Agreement to this point gives Siskiyou County a $23 million dollar allocation Klamath Settlement and Humboldt County $0 dollars and a threat if they litigate a dollar settlement of entitlements they do not have? Bureaucracy at it's worse. But wait! Siskiyou Supervisors vote against removal of the dams and three of the dams are in their county! KDRV 12 And they stood to gain 23 million? And the Humboldt County Sups voted unanamously for the settlement that gives nothing to Humboldt? YouTube - Klamath settlement protests People on the Northern Klamath are protectionists for their water rights to the extreme.

So in actuality, Humboldt County and the Yurok tribe are not even considered stake holders in the process that is killing the fishing industry on the Klamath? Tear the damn Dams down dammit! This is a complex multi layered issue. Stay tuned as I try to simplify this issue so I understand it. (Dummy it down to me.)

The CEC then passed The Eureka Fair Compensation Act on to the HCDCC executive board to evaluate whether to present this ordinance to the HCDCC membership at our next HCDCC general meeting. I enthusiastically endorsed the ordinance to move forward. I feel the committee will support this movement, but I feel there is a need to step up the petition signing process.

I certainly hope the so-called Fair Compensation thing dies a quick death. It's poorly thought out and will create just another barrier for Eureka businesses MOST OF WHICH ARE SMALL. Does the author think small employers have bags of cash sitting around to pay for this? Why should Amigas have a different wage requirement on 5th Street than in Cutten? Nice sentiment, well-meant but: back to the drawing board.

If you're business is truly small, you'll only see a $1 pay increase next year, and only for those getting paid the minimum wage. Aren't your workers worth paying them what they're worth? Or do you prefer higher training and recruitment costs which come from treating workers like dirt and having more of them quit on you?

Thank you Richard, it's good to see some solidarity for once around these parts. People should drop their turf battle b.s. and do something for the workers already!

Caterpillar Inc., moving to boost its presence in the booming Asia-Pacific market, on Wednesday unveiled an approximately $500 million transaction that will boost the heavy-equipment giant's 50 percent ownership stake in a joint venture to a controlling 67 percent. Some of these used equipment are sold in Banago, Philippines. I got this information in
