Joplin, Mo., one year after the killer tornado ... a visit with some of the survivors, and stories of rebuilding

1 post / 0 new

CBS Sunday Morning had a story on the 5/13/12 episode about Ruben Carter, an employee of a gas station in Joplin, who saved the lives of 24 others with his quick thinking during the EF-5 tornado that killed about 160 people. This was one case where having a person being "underemployed" proved to be a life saver for those around him at a critical time. Lee Cowan reports for CBS :

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.
