Ord 18-54 11/7/2018 8:39 PMEric Lein For Bureaucratic thinking boggles my mind: FIRST, raise garbage prices; NEXT, raise wages because people can’t afford to live here. __ While considering this new minimum wage ordinance, please understand that recently-adopted garbage ordinances harm many low-paid workers who live in St. Paul. Despite vocal opposition by thousands of residents, only two councilmembers voted against skewed and oppressive garbage price increases that “rolled out” as of 10/01/2018. For garbage there is NO multi-year phase-in, NO sharing, NO opt-out, and there are NO exceptions (unless customers submit plane tickets or doctors’ notes for review by the self-appointed garbage police). REALLY?!! __ Let’s be fair to everyone by letting wages, and garbage prices, move to reasonable levels. REGARDING WAGES: Adopt a thoroughly-vetted plan when the time is right. REGARDING GARBAGE: On 11/14/2018, acknowledge that the citizens’ petition on Garbage Ordinance 18-39, containing 5,541 valid signatures, is "sufficient." +5
