Tuesday means blog talk radio time. My show tonight. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou.

Biting issues.

I did a TV show five years ago re untested rape kits. They are back in the news. Florida. Thirteen thousand. Nothing has changed in five years.

The reasons given why Florida is so far behind are a crock. Listen to the real reasons tonight.

Another truth session involves Henry Ford. In 1914, Ford raised the minimum wage of his workers from somewhere around $2.25 per day to $5 per day. Let me tell you the real reason. The one no one talks about.

Other topics include whether the economy is really better, how a ton of garbage is hidden in the new highway bill that have nothing to do with highway construction, a shopping mall brawl involving 2,000 people, and more.

Join me. Nine my time.

My yesterday began with the anti-gravity treadmill. Dave there. I admire Dave. Ninety six and still plugging away to keep his body healthy.

A doctor visit later in the afternoon. I keep the medical and pharmaceutical industries in business.

David Wilson, mentioned in the past few days, and I had drinks and appetizers last night at Sq.1. Turned out David is a snowbird. He has a second home in Bahama Village. A retired school teacher, he now operates an antique business back home.

An interesting guy. A good time.

Syracuse basketball tonight. Against Clemson. Syracuse a 5 point favorite. Hope it works out that way.

Enjoy your day!


    • I have to thank you, Patrick. I was wrong. I miss read, miss wrote. It happens. Re why, it has to do with turnover. People were not accustomed to working on an assembly/production line. They quit. Turnover was big. Costly to retrain. costly due to lack of production. Ford basically doubled their daily pay to keep the work force working.

  1. Yep, thats right.

    I’m sure the ‘ per hour’ was just a mistype.

    I’ve read many reasons why Ford did that and most are wrong. About $2.00 of that increase was in benefits.

    I was born in a Studebaker parts room and in a family that was involved with Studebaker and Ford. So I study all I can about those families and other early auto manufacturers.
