Boulangerie: April 2023
One unbaked bit from the month!
The Boulangerie is a regular, unscheduled feature of Technocomplex, appearing once or twice a week. It is for half-baked, rising dough, the just-now-in-the-oven entries. After all boulangerie in French is bakery. Entries are always very short. To find out when new loaves have been set out, follow @firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Minimum wages for tipped workers are different, and far lower at both the state and local government levels. For instance, while the federal minimum wage is an already obscenely low $7.25 per hour, for tipped workers it is only $2.13 (an amount set by Congress in 1991!) - as long tips bring the hourly total up to $7.25. The employer only has to make up the difference between between the minimum wage and the tipped minimum wage if tips do not cover the gap.”
