    I am going off approximates as i do not know what sub urbs are called. the red lion was the pub name to my knowledge i do not know if its changed name or ownership next. It was either the pub owners pigs or someone was mental enough to get sloshed with their pigs. Its nothing bad I know people have horses inside their houses!

    I could probably go onto Facebook and find exactly who it was whose pig was hit by a car outside the Red Lion in Llanfair.

    America has a minimum wage:confused:
    Whilst it might only be a few states, they are some of the highest populated states that don't have the minimum wage.

    The US already has a minimum wage, and everyone reasonable understands that the Republicans are insane anyway.
    Not in all states at all, and the Republicans are not insane because insanity suggests that they are abnormal, which is wrong as a lot of people support them and any politician which denounces a party/group of people as insane is insane themselves. This is because you just insulted the electorate, which is electoral suicide and which is why Corbyn will not do well.

    Only 5 don't, and they're some of the lesser populated, although I'm not sure if that's no minimum wage and federal kicks in, or whether it is no minimum wage in legislation to supersede federal

    Actually the federal minimum wage law creates a minimum wage when the state hasn't created one, there is no state in America That doesn't have a minimum wage

    The Fair Labour Standards Act sets a minimum wage at federal level but that minimum wage is often below the market wage, the Fair Labour Standards Act creates exemptions for types of workers, and restaurants can pay workers below the federal minimum wage if is expected tips will take total earnings for the server above the federal minimum: it is not a minimum wage like we have in Britain.

    If a person doesn't earn the make up in tips then federal law dictates that their employer is ment to supliment the tips to get it up the that minimum wage.

    That is difficult to work out accurately, however, my main point is the living wage in Fauquier County, Virginia is $27.45 for a married person but the minimum wage is $7.25; the minimum wage is often below the market wage making the legislation worth little to workers.
