    Sad to see these places struggling, but its good that these people who claim to be progressives are learning to find solutions in the market . Its interesting that the progressive recognizes the importance of the free market now that it effects them. On a positive note, the graphic novel of the month club sounds super cool and I would consider joining if I had the spare dough.

    i.e. could he not pay his workers an hourly rate, but instead a commission on sales? i.e. 2% of the total sale. no hourly rate, its a freelance job, you just have to be there to do it. this could very well be illegal and i just don’t know it, but i wonder how long until similar legal workarounds become commonplace in places like San Francisco with high minimum wages.
