La. Local Option To Set Minimum Wage Bill Killed In Committee

LOCAL MINIMUM WAGE OPTION - $7.25 an hour is the current minimum wage set by the federal government, which Louisiana follows because the state doesn’t have a minimum wage of its own. Since taking office three years ago - Governor John Bel Edwards has been urging the State Legislature to set and raise the state minimum wage, but such a move has yet to gain enough support from lawmakers. A bill by Representative Royce Duplessis (D-New Orleans) would have stripped a 1997 law that restricts...

NPR's Michel Martin speaks with Jeffrey Chase, a former immigration judge, about how President Trump's new proposals will affect immigration courts.

President Trump's account on the U.S. Golf Association system has been hacked in an apparent attempt to make him look like a bad golfer with four fake scores.

The awful scores of 101, 100, 108 and 102 were posted to Trump's USGA-administered Golf Handicap and Information Network [GHIN] handicap system on Friday, according to Golfweek. A handicap is a measure of a golfer's ability – a lower handicap indicates a better golf game.

Comedian Sammy Shore, who co-founded one of the most influential clubs in comedy, died Saturday at 92, his son announced in a series of tweets.

Shore died at his Las Vegas home surrounded by family, according to a family spokesperson. His son, actor-comedian Pauly Shore, paid tribute to his father on Twitter. The two spent the past 20 years touring together as a father-son comedy team.

It's not a message for everyone — even though that's exactly what it's intended to be.

Many Democrats are angry. They're angry with President Trump's election and what it represents. And they're angry about the direction of the country, and the inequities in American life.

So it would make sense that the person running for the Democratic nomination for president would channel that anger. President Trump did it to win over the Republican base in 2016, saying he gladly carries the "mantle of anger."

Not Joe Biden.

When 29-year-old Gilberto Olivas-Bejarano first returned to his birth country of Mexico, he didn't speak the native language.

"I barely speak Spanish now," he says.

He arrived in León alone, and today, nearly two years since his deportation, Olivas-Bejarano has still not seen his parents or siblings in person.
