That the FTC was involved with this just seems ridiculous to me:

Quote:
Rules likely raised prices for consumers, complaint alleges
The American Guild of Organists has agreed to eliminate rules that restrict its members from competing for opportunities to perform.
The agreement between the FTC and the American Guild of Organists resolves a complaint by the agency alleging that the guild’s rules restrained competition and harmed consumers in violation of the FTC Act.
According to the FTC, the guild rules generated complaints from consumers and organists. The guild represents approximately 15,000 member organists and choral directors in 300 chapters in the United States and abroad.
Under the guild’s code of ethics, if a consumer wished to have someone other than an “incumbent musician” play at a venue for a wedding, funeral or other service, the consumer was required to pay both the incumbent and the consumer’s chosen musician. The code of ethics stated that “members are advised to protect themselves as incumbents” through contracts that secure fees even if they don’t perform.
The guild also developed and publicized compensation schedules and formulas, and instructed its chapters and members to develop and use regionally applicable versions to determine charges for their services.
The proposed consent order settling the FTC’s charges requires the American Guild of Organists to stop restraining its members from soliciting work as musicians, and to stop issuing compensation schedules, guidance, or model contract provisions for members to use to determine their compensation. The guild must implement an antitrust compliance program, and is required under the order to stop recognizing chapters that fail to certify their compliance with the order’s provisions.
Details about the case are set forth in the analysis to aid public comment for this matter. The Commission vote to accept the consent agreement containing the proposed consent order for public comment was 2-0.
The FTC will publish the consent package in the Federal Register shortly. The agreement will be subject to public comment for 30 days, beginning today and continuing through May 2, 2017, after which the Commission will decide whether to make the proposed consent order final. Comments can be filed electronically or in paper form by following the instructions in the “Supplementary Information” section of the Federal Register notice.
NOTE: The Commission issues an administrative complaint when it has “reason to believe” that the law has been or is being violated, and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest. When the Commission issues a consent order on a final basis, it carries the force of law with respect to future actions. Each violation of such an order may result in a civil penalty of up to $40,654.

Mushroom walks into a bar, bartender says, "We don't serve your kind in here."

Mushroom says, "Why not? I'm a fungi."

Two pieces of string walk into a bar. The bartender looks at them and says, "We don't serve pieces of string here, get out!" They go outside and the one piece of string twists himself up and unravels one end of himself before walking back into the bar. The bartender says, "Aren't you that piece of string I just told to hit the road?" The string answers back, "No, I'm a frayed knot!"

Had a professor who would walk around with a frayed knot in his back pocket and would pull it out when he would otherwise have said no. Gotta find the humor where you can

You are here
so they are saying that you should not just look at raw data but at how it actually works?

To bad she does not believe that banks should be afforded the same consideration.

I think the counterpoint make her more of a hypocrite.

I vote that MB post stands.

I wonder if they included Warren's own salary in with the analysis?

I ordered socks for the fam. For the bigger kid baseball socks since he's totally eat up with baseball, video game socks for my techy kid, dad joke socks for hubs and I got Mom tattoo socks. They came with a sweet note from the owner, John, and a little bag of candy. EVERYONE on the Christmas list is getting socks from me this year! What a sweet story and a wonderful cause.

70 years ago today, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball when he played in an exhibition game for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

I plan to be nursing a hangover with coffee and mimosas most mornings so the puke washing should be lovely scenery.
