    Aeropostale should close the store and then no one will be forced to work there any longer.

    “The current $10.29 rate is a nickel an hour more than the living wage in San Francisco.” Considering SF is one of the most expensive places in the world to live, and Santa Fe is a backwater podunk town, in which living costs next to nothing, I’m a bit confused. Why would anyone in Santa Fe need the same amount to live as one in SF? Sheer government stupidity (I repeat meyself, I know).

    Just having a job is a blessing. Nothing that happens in SF has any connection to reality.

    Please consider the financial impact of a large corporate retailer competing against local business. Bad enough they have buying power to sell at a lower cost, but then they attempt to skirt city lay and pay less too. Now we have a larger issue, yes? Not such a rosy picture, eh?

    “The initial complaint came in September from former employee Brittany Olson, who alleged she was underpaid by $24.91 for less than 11 hours work.”

    I suspect this has more to do with Ms. Olson leaving her employment on bad terms than it does with anything else. She can’t hold a job, so she might as well sue her way to money.

    Ha the joke is on city of Sante Fe. Small business will locate on the outside edge of city limits, taking tax revenue with it! Cities that incorporate high sales tax, income tax, etc are idiots and business will relocate. Have you ever wondered why you see gas stations selling liquor and cigarettes on the state line???
