The Toughest Job You’ll Never Love: Work for Ford / Bay Area Bike Share / Motivate for a Whopping $1 Above Minimum Wage

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

IDK, man. I still see more people sitting on locked up BABS bikes than people actually using them.

And how many millions have we spent on this program?

It’s making some people rich, but not its workers, not at, what, a nominal amount north of min wage?

Do you like bikes? Well, then why don’t we take all this money and simply give bikes away to residents? I mean, you know, as a mental exercise, something to think about. As things stand now, nobody really uses these rides ($9 minimum, ouch, so I’ve never even tried them, plus a nice $1200 charge on your credit card if you lose it, or in the event you have a hassle checking it back in and somebody steals it), but, somehow, this whole deal makes some people happy, and Ford (Motor Company) can get a Super Bowl ad snippet out of it, OK fine.

Anyway, have at it:

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:

Frisco Loses “Hometown Airline,” “Thousands of Jobs” – Let’s Look at Excessive Hype for SFO the Past Decade – QANTAS and Vaunted A380

Monday, April 4th, 2016

1. Here’s the news:

Alaska Air Agrees to Buy Virgin America for $2.6 Billion

Does this airline deal “make sense?” IDK, we’ll see.

But let’s now take the chance to take a look at the hype over Virgin America nine years ago, when the Mayor of SF boasted of the “thousands of jobs” what would come from our “hometown airline.”

Flip to the next page to see that.

2. What else, oh the already-failed Airbus A380, the “green” plane what was “going to change everything.” From 2006:

These (A380) aircraft are also very efficient.

But no, not at all, not really. Actually, that’s the problem – A380’s aren’t all that efficient.

Now, did it make sense for SFO to prepare for the arrival of the A380 starting 10-20 years ago? IDK, perhaps, since the feds were paying for most of the work. But this plane certainly was not the future of air travel, as should have obvious to anyone a decade ago.

3. What else, oh, QANTAS.

The airline plans to bring its A380 aircraft to San Francisco on a regular basis in the next few years.

Hey, did this work out? No, not at all. In fact, QANTAS completely abandoned SFO a short time later. It preferred Texas(!) and, of course, Los Angeles, for various reasons.

(And that’s the way it’s been since the 1950’s – QANTAS comes to SFO then starts losing money and then it leaves us and then it comes back to us. This really isn’t under the control of any local Mayors.)

Anyway, that’s how things have gone at SFO the past decade.

How Mayor Ed Lee “Destroyed” Jobs at Sixth and Market – How Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers Didn’t Really Belong at 6th and Market

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

See this place at 6th and Market? It catches the overflow from Dotties, the shop around the corner:

7J7C3846 copy

It used to be Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers.

PDB was funded by and “Central Market Cultural District Loan Fund” and [cough] the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency*[R.I.P.]

Here’s the story of PDB:

2010: Pearl’s Burgers signs on to Mid-Market rejuvenation

2011: Pearl’s Burgers opens on Market

2014: Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers closes its location at Sixth and Market

PDB at 1001 Market Street wasn’t a good idea.

Whose idea was it?

Was it Mayor Ed Lee’s? Did he “create” jobs here? Well, take a look at the no-longer-operational pres release below.

Oh but look, Homeskillet arrives to save the day.

Shouldn’t it too get corporate welfare from tax and fee payers? Why not?

Why on Gaia’s Green Earth should we have the gov’mint picking winners and losers?

I don’t get it.

Shouldn’t the gov’mint focus on its core functions? Say, how’s SFGov functioning these days down at 6th and Market?

Anyway, bon courage, La Maison Skillet.

Mayor Lee Celebrates Central Market Milestone – 56 Jobs Created in Central Market by Companies Taking Advantage of New Payroll Expense Tax Policy

1/26/12—Mayor Edwin M. Lee today announced that businesses are beginning to take advantage of the City’s Central Market/Tenderloin Payroll Expense Tax Exclusion. Zendesk and Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers are the first of what is anticipated to be many companies choosing to locate in the Central Market and Tenderloin neighborhoods and take advantage of the six-year payroll expense tax exclusion for new jobs created.

Creating 56 new jobs in the Central Market area last year, both companies have now been issued conditional letters of eligibility, which allows them to continue to create new jobs, generate revenue for the City and transform Central Market.

“With the success of Pearl’s and Zendesk in Central Market and with the opening of Twitter this summer, I continue to be encouraged by the successes we are seeing. While we have more work to do, we can still celebrate milestones like this and the many small businesses and arts groups arriving in the area, generating new foot traffic and increasing positive activity in the area,” said Mayor Lee. “This is a historic opportunity to leverage the energy and momentum that is creating an eclectic cultural arts, small business, entertainment and innovation economy hub.”

The Central Market/Tenderloin Payroll Expense Tax Exclusion was created to help to stabilize and revitalize an area that has been burdened by decades of high vacancy rates and disinvestment. The policy was designed to attract businesses to Central Market and the Tenderloin in order to create jobs and stimulate small business development. By providing tax relief for new jobs the Tax Exclusion encourages San Francisco companies, particularly those that are fast-growing, to move to Central Market as their employee base expands.

Zendesk, a San Francisco-based technology company that provides cloud-based help desk software, announced they had signed a lease in the Central Market in June of 2011 and that they would be doubling their footprint in September of 2011, shortly after they moved in. Since that time, Zendesk has added 40 jobs and plans to add another 96 jobs in 2012, totaling 200 staff.

“Our move to 6th and Market streets in August has been a meaningful one, and we are honored to be one of what will hopefully be many companies to bring positive change and innovation to this neighborhood,” said Zendesk CEO Mikkel Svane. “We’re excited about being the first tech company to draft and now implement a Community Benefits Agreement, which will help us build and foster long-lasting and meaningful relationships with the residents, businesses, community leaders, and other neighborhood stakeholders in Central Market and the Tenderloin.”

As part of qualifying for the Central Market / Tenderloin Payroll Expense Tax Exclusion, Zendesk entered into a Community Benefits Agreement with the City earlier this week. The company has committed to implementing a number of programs that will benefit the neighborhood and its residents, including support for community gardens, job training programs, access to technology, and a commitment to engage local restaurants and business for event catering and other services.

In November 2011 Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers opened their fourth location in Central Market. The award-winning restaurant was able to locate in Central Market with help from the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, a loan from the City’s Central Market Cultural District Loan Fund and the Payroll Expense Tax Exclusion. They have created 16 new jobs as a result of their new location.

“It is an exciting and historic time to do business in Central Market,” said Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers Owner Sylvia Yi. “Sixth Street is fast becoming a comfort food corridor, and we are lucky to be a part of it. Innovative incentives like the payroll expense tax exemption will continue to entice other businesses to our area and keep the entrepreneurial momentum going in burgeoning Central Market. Kudos to Mayor Lee and his office for their commitment to revitalize this neighborhood. It is happening with great speed and much success thus far!”

The attraction and expansion of large employers and small businesses to Central Market is a cornerstone of the Mayor’s recently-launched Central Market Economic Strategy, the result of a 10-month public process that has resulted in a comprehensive roadmap to stabilize, revitalize and transform Central Market. Enhanced safety services are one of the primary components of the Economic Strategy, which includes the City’s Central Market Community Safety Ambassadors Program.
