  • Kelly Lincoln had a pretty thorough article in the local paper about the recent Mateel old growth/saplings meeting. I lol’d when I read Carol and John were there, representing. Please. Like inviting the foxes into the henhouse to “help.”

  • If the caretaker works twenty hours a week, they only make $1120 a month before deductions. If they paid the $850 a month in rent that only leaves $270 for bills and incidentals. Is the rent reduced for the person that takes the caretaker position?

    • some people will argue they could get a second job but for argument sake, even if the job was 40 hours a week that rent would still be more than a third of their income so it still isnt affordable

      . For housing costs to be considered affordable, these total costs should not exceed 30 percent of household income, according to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

  • So approximately half of the salary would go for the rent on the unit…based on a 35-40 hr week, after taxes- but it’s a part time salary…….and yet all the free “hospitality” stuff at Reggae and other shows… It seems like free rent or maybe $420/ mo would make better sense. A person doing a good job would be a real gift& worth free/ reduced rent.

  • No one pays a California wage in Humboldt county.
    The only way to make money in hum co. is to grow weed, or work in the industry.

  • I pay 18 to start and so do a lot of other employers. Wonder why Justin Crellin has not been charged?
