s minimum wage, a down the middle look at that is our first subject today. On cnn 10., i m carl azuz it’s, always good to have you watching. The federal minimum wage is the least amount of money per hour that american businesses must pay their employees, states and communities are allowed to require higher minimum wages, and many of them do, but as of right now, 7.25 cents per hour is the minimum that u.s employers Must pay that rate was updated in 2009 under then president barack obama, this week, democrats in congress introduced a bill to increase the federal minimum wage to 15 per hour as it stands now, the proposal wouldn’t do this immediately. It would include gradual wage increases until 2025 when it would hit the dollar minimum. President joe biden has included this increase in his 1.9 trillion dollar coronavirus relief plan in case that package doesn’t pass with the minimum wage change. Democrats have introduced a separate bill. The minimum wage is a controversial subject because experts and economists disagree over the effects it has supporters of raising the wage say it will put more money in the pockets of workers, encouraging them to spend more and that this would help businesses and stimulate the economy. Opponents of raising the wage say will do the opposite that it would cause smaller businesses and restaurants to lay off workers, because these organizations don’t make enough in profits to afford the higher labor costs. There’S a political divide over this subject too democrats generally favor, the minimum wage increase.
Republicans generally oppose it. Democrats say it would help individuals who are struggling because of the coronavirus pandemic. Republicans say it would hurt businesses that are struggling because of the coronavirus pandemic and individuals too, if their jobs are cut. Part of the reason why democrats are pushing for it now is because they have control over both chambers of congress and the white house. For the first time since 2010, and while democratic leaders have said they’d like to increase the minimum wage with at least some republican support, they may try to pass the legislation without it when he was vice. President. During the obama administration, joe biden had the job of overseeing the government’s 840 billion dollar economic stimulus package, which was passed in 2009 to help the nation recover from the great recession when he was vice. President. During the trump administration, mike pence had the job of overseeing the government’s coronavirus task force, which was established in 2020 to help the nation address the covid19 pandemic today, cnn contributor, kelly mena, explains the potential role of vice president kamala harris, as the united states is second In command thanks, carl kamala harris might be the first woman, black and south asian individual to hold the office of the vice president, but the role is crucial to the running of the federal government. The vice president’s constitutional role is as president of the u.s senate. As the head of the powerful upper chamber of congress, the vp’s main role is to break ties this year.
That could very possibly happen as democrats are equal with republicans for the number of members they have in the chamber, though, the vp role is also to be there. In case anything happens to the president. The position can be quite influential due to its proximity to the commander. In chief, for example, richard nixon was a busy vp under former president dwight d eisenhower, who gave him a slew of responsibilities, including being well informed of the activities and initiatives of the administration. Dick cheney, notably, was on former president george w bush’s search committee for vice president and then chose himself to be bush’s running mate. Cheney went on to play an important role in bush’s warrant policy decisions amid the september 11 attacks. The modern vice president functions as part of the president’s inner circle, influencing policy changes and orders. Vps also have their office in the west wing of the white house. Some even become president themselves. President joe biden has signaled that harris will have a significant role in his administration in the first week. She has been right by his side as he signed several executive orders and been next to him in the oval office to receive the president’s daily briefing carl. The question now remains with the historical first in the vp’s office, how much influence will harris have on the biden, administration, ten, second, trivia, chum, humpback and silver are all used to describe a type of what sunfish eel whale or salmon.
These are all salmon a large type of fish you’ll find in the atlantic, and pacific atlantic salmon are anadromous, which means they can live in salt, water and fresh water. They’Re considered the king of fish, because they’re extraordinary jumpers able to leap tall obstacles like waterfalls when swimming upstream dams, however, are another story. Some experts say they’re the biggest threat to the endangered atlantic salmon. There are a number of hatcheries that aim to repopulate their numbers. In the wild, but these facilities come with challenges of their own and their results. When it comes to atlantic salmon are mixed, the atlantic salmon over the course of its lifetime. It will travel from its birthplace and the rivers flowing into the north atlantic up north. As far as greenland and back again to lay their eggs it’s an epic journey, but the majestic salmon run may become a thing of the past in the u.s. The atlantic salmon is federally. Endangered pollution and pesticides have severely affected the river habitat, but there’s one thing more than any other that has devastated their numbers. Dams were the primary and remain the primary issue, and those dams could be as small as as a culvert at a road crossing that the salmon just can’t get up, and over 10 to 15 years. We could see these fish gone from the planet forever. If we don’t move to action, dwayne shaw manages the down east salmon federation hatcheries in maine over 200 years in the united states, there have been attempts made to maintain, restore and perpetuate the atlantic salmon there’s been many many failures.
We’Ve adopted the technique developed by peter gray and, as it turns out, it’s working quite well for us, peter gray ran a hatchery on the tine river in northumberland uk. When he started the river was heavily polluted and damned the salmon population was almost non existent. Peter’S unique methodology, alongside habitat restoration and pollution reduction, contributed to one of the biggest salmon recovery success stories in europe. Peter developed a technique over time that naturalized the hatchery methods such that the fish were treated more like a wild fish and less like a farmed creature. Based on peter’s methodology, the downey’s hatcheries try and rear their salmon eggs in conditions that match their natural environment, including using river water, dark bottom tanks and positioning the hatchery on the river of origin, but there’s. A strong debate around hatcheries with many facilities, thought to do more harm than good to salmon populations. The science says that hatchery reared fish are not as strong as wild fish but, for instance, in the usa, where wild stocks of salmon are so low, really the only way to be a catalyst to get those stocks back is to have salmon hatcheries. So it is a balance stocking to restore your stocks, then stop at a time when you can. Let nature take its course and you don’t damage those stocks, genetically we’re, keeping the hatchery manager out of the picture as much as possible, with the intent of actually closing the hatchery as soon as possible.
If we were to do nothing, these fish would quickly move toward extinction. Success is measured by finding the eggs of adult salmon returning to the river and linking their genetics to those of the hatchery fish we’re, seeing as much as 20 times the return rate that gives us hope that, in fact, we can turn things around much more quickly. Conserving salmon does so much more than save the species it’s an umbrella species protecting salmon helps all life in its habitat. If salmon are running in abundance, then things are okay, hey.
