Man, Walmart’s coming to Frisco, man. Sooner or later. Amazon’s here, right? Target didn’t used to be here, but now it is, right? And Lowe’s?

Anyway, I’m used to seeing Gap ‘Nana Navy interns exploring our town in packs ‘n stuff, but I never thought I’d see Walmart interns in the 415.

QUESTION: What are “Living Wages” in Frisco / Alameda County in 2017? Ford Motor Co of Michigan Thinks It’s $16.13/Hr.

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

Hey, QUESTION: Does Michigan-based FoMoCo think that $16.13 per hour really is a “living wage” in our Bay Area in places like Frisco, E-Ville, Oaktown, Berzerkeley, etc? Here’s why I ask:

  1. Fully 90 percent of operations jobs are full time positions, paying at or above living wages…”; and consider that
  2. These gigs pay $16.13 per hour, even in San Francisco, right?

So does that square?

IDK.

IDTS.

KTHXBYE.

Signs of Full Employment in Frisco: MINI MASS HIRE at Target Stores, Saturday, Dec 10th, Noon – 4 PM

Friday, December 9th, 2016

(Ah memories, back when NOPNA tried to say NOPE-NA to City Target West. But even the millionaire landed gentry of the “NOPA” Western Addition shop here now, even though they hate the idea of living so close to a busy Target store. Of course, they’d still kill this operation if they could, but they can’t, so oh well. And oh, prices are higher here at a City Target than a regular Target that you can find down in the Colma Daly City Serramonte area oh well.)

Hey, does Target operate the Starbucks at Geary and Masonic? Sure looks that way:

Motorized Farming in the Great Valley in 2016 Doesn’t Look All That Much Different Than What It Must Have a Century Ago

Thursday, January 7th, 2016

So you got your crew, your crew conveyance and some port-a-potties out there, and probably some hand tools

San Francisco’s Best (If Scariest) Commute: Riding the Elevator Basket Up Sutro Tower

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

As seen a few days back – that square, that’s your elevator car. Haven’t seen it in a while:

And here’s the close-up color version, from all the way back in 2004:

(I remember thinking how the workers in the basket should have appeared clearer in this photo. I guess I was super-far away, oh well.)

In closing, take that, Great Pyramid. Pwned:

How to Make a Pay Package Worth Over $300K per Year: Become an “Incident Support Specialist” – Drive an SUV for the SFFD?

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Here you go – a couple years worth of pay data for SFGov’s Incident Support Specialists:

Capturefsff copy

(All of these ISS people are at the SFFD AFAIK.)

So, what does an ISS do?

Here’s my guess – drive SUVs about Frisco.

Now let’s do a search for ISS:

“A fire chief’s vehicle, also called a “chief unit” or a “fire chief’s car”, “Fly Car”, “Fly Vehicle”, a “fire car”, or sometimes even called a “Buggy” (a throw back to horse drawn days), is a car, truck, or SUV that is used by a fire chief at fire scenes.”

“Each fire chief’s vehicle can be driven/operated by an assistant to the Fire Chief, Deputy Chief, Division Chief or Battalion Chief known as a Chief’s Driver, Chief’s Aide, Chief’s Operator, or Incident Support Specialist.”

So, if you spend 60-something hours a week driving people about Frisco in a Ford Expedition or a Chevy Suburban, you can make about ten times as much laboring as an SFGov Incident Support Specialist than as a driver for the Lyft or the Uber.

Do I have that right?

“Emergency Ride Home” – Will San Francisco Pay For Your Taxi Ride Home If You Bike to Work and Get a Flat Tire? Yes

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Here it is, from the San Francisco Department of the Environment:

Emergency Ride Home

This program is similar to those offered by Stanford U, UCMarin County and your major corporations.*

So, if you power your Nissan Leaf all-electric car or ZERO all-electric motorcycle with clean Hetch Hetchy hydroelectricity, SFGov is saying that your commute to work isn’t “sustainable.” OTOH, if you ride in a diesel MUNI bus, your commute is “sustainable? OK, maybe.

Hey, what about the method that SFGov uses to fund retirement pay and medical benefits for all its employees, past, present, and future? Is that sustainable, SFGov? Oh no? OK, SFGov.

And if one of my bikes gets a flat tire, have I ever said to myself, “Oh no, it’s an emergency!”

Nope.

But one supposes that if you had some free money to spend and you wanted to appeal to your bo-bo constituancy, you’d offer the same program.

ASSIGNMENT DESK: Well, this one writes itself. The hardest part will be finding an appealing subject who’s actually used this program already. Take some photos of the victim, you know, probably a her, and make sure have the Financh in the background in the photos, and then throw in a few quotes from a Department Head, and BAM! – you’ve got yourself a Story.

End Of Line

*At some places down in the valley, if you get sick at work your Free Ride Home will be so, so baller, you’ll feel like a billionaire, you know, temporarily anyway, and you’ll tell all your friends about it, and they’ll be so impressed.
