Alice is here producing Thank you for joining us. The City Council of Long Beach, California thought it was doing something noble. It was insisting that The grocery stores out there pay an additional $4 per hour to all of their workers as hazard pay during the pandemic. Yeah, they were supposed to do that for at least 120 days, and then I guess to be looked at after that fact. But instead of Ah, few of these grocery stores doing that they actually had to close their doors because they couldn't afford, they said. What would that amounted to about 26% increase? In their payroll. Kroger is the chain that's closing two stores in Long Beach, California. And the City Council thought they were doing something very noble here by raising the pay rate for the people who work there. And they're not the only ones. There are other cities in California that air moving down this path of mandating, requiring that grocery store workers get an additional $4 per hour. And to me. This caught my attention because This was $4 extra an hour. I don't know what these grocery store employees were making. But the case is being made with just this $4 extra mandated by first off a city has no right to tell a private business how to do that. But anyway, it just Ties into the $15 minimum wage that they're trying to push through with the coronavirus package that they're looking to pass now and if this can happen You better bet that it happens across the board and one of the complaints from Kroeber was Listen. We already operate at a laser or razor thin margin. And most of times operate in the red. When you add on that additional labor costs for us, there's no way for us to keep our doors open, and that's what you're seeing here, and that's what you're going to see for some businesses that that's how they operate. It's a very thin margin of profit that they're even able to make, and when you add in labor cost you either going to have them close, like Kroger's doing with these two stores. You're going to have them lay off employees and or you're going to have them have to raise their prices for whatever product it is that they sell. Look at all the victims employees who are now out of work. People who live in these areas who depended on that grocery store. They have to find another place to go shop. The unintended consequences ripple through that community. L A is thinking about doing the same thing, so we'll keep our eye on that for you. This is emerging throughout California, and the California Grocers Association is very worried about it. They said This is just the beginning of bad things to come..

"The districts who are really they're looking after themselves. Let's just put it that way. All the districts are looking for their their areas. And it becomes a problem with getting things done on the city council up. Because you have to have coalitions and to do things well care for those guys. Strict members want it just like congress. They try to get all the fat. You know, all the spending for their district buddies shuffling around for that. And so you have a big budget. The city is become that somewhat. I mean, the the east Austin council members want the money spent an east coast don't much care about west awesome. They think we can take care of ourselves. But, but again, this is a citywide issue we need to take care of we need for Senator Watson to help us. Yes. We need some credit to drive down university. The university of Texas has a valuable asset worth probably one hundred million dollars. Right and daily Garza said you only go raise money for that. And didn't indicate how much the city would help towards that. But we've got some hard work ahead of us and anybody's listening out there that wants to make a big contribution. They should. Contact your head. We'll talk to him there some tax advantages to try putting it in a conservation easement putting it into a foundation. But also there's education to be had with some of the council members about about who plays Muny. And and I think in the next few weeks, it would be a proxy their next few much be process of saying, listen, this is not just a a west often playground. Well, that's right and university students use use line. So it's an amenity for the university of Texas as well. And so we need to all pitch in and figure out a way to save. That course, right? Just say this if private money does that ultimately, we need to make sure. That we keep the green fees. Exactly what they are now or maybe they won't change much. Right. Even if the course is has renovation by Ben Crenshaw Bill Kluwer, if the amenities are the driving ranges may pretty and everything city Boston is not gonna suffer. The residents are not going to suffer because of that. Now, the out of town people are out of state people that come into Austin, the play lines. They're gonna pay a little more money. Yeah. I don't mind saying that because you've got to make it a viable avaiable business. Right. But we can raise the money for the improvements for sure. And maybe for a portion of the golf course purchase. But you know. You know, there's places in Austin where forcible housing should be or other improvements. It's not on a ninety five year old piece of Greenspace that had been recreational space and people enjoy so I'll get myself. I still think the university of Texas could be a player in this too.
