Bo Sullivan first began his long career at WHYN radio in 1990 as a sports talk show producer. Bo then moved on to become the host of that sports talk show. In 1993, Bo became the sports anchor and co-host for the WHYN morning show. After a few hiatuses, both planned and unplanned, Bo came back to stay in 1996 as the morning show sports anchor, producer, and co-host.
Born and raised in Westfield, he's now raising his own family there. He lives with his wife Kris and daughters Leighanne and Shannon. When Bo was growing up, his father Richard Sullivan was superintendent of schools in two local communities. Politics runs in the family. Brother Brian is a Westfield city councilor and brother Rick is the city's seven term mayor. Besides transporting his children to various activities including CCD and swimming lessons, he coaches both daughters in three different sports. He also works as a part-time political consultant. In his scarce spare time, Bo likes to golf and is a frequent visitor to the Connecticut casinos.
What does Bo like most about his position at WHYN? For one, he's a big fan of waking at 3:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. He also enjoys meeting the many loyal listeners to the show. His lifelong ambition is to open a sports bar and play Texas Hold 'em every day of his life.
I’m not exactly sure what “income equality is” but that’s what the fast food workers in some of our cities are hollering for, in a fervent hope that this nascent movement catches on across the country!
I’m not sure what “income equality “(or inequality) means, but I’m pretty sure that it operates in direct opposition to the capitalist system that fuels this countries’ economy!
The fast food workers are earning a minimum wage of $7.45 an hour, I believe.
The workers would like to see it doubled.
A former employer of mine might respond to this sharply by saying something like; “people in Hell want ice water.”
Or something of a pithy equivalent.
A fifteen dollar minimum wage.
Well, I want everyone to do well. I want everyone to make the income they wish to make and to reach the level of personal economy they wish to reach.
But how do we compute the value of services?
Isn’t it about the rarity of an ability, or the degree of experience, educational level, and finally, the value of that ability in the chain of effort to create profit?
Don’t get me wrong, I do not look down on anyone! And I do not regard the fast food worker as anything more than a responsible honest person, doing honorable work.
But…aren’t entry level jobs designed and configured as stepping stones to further career levels?
Can you remain in an entry level position forever and expect it to sustain you?
I don’t personally think so, and feel we need to go back to square one, and note, that mastering the technical apparatus of the fryolater, and the timing of flipping burgers is not a rare enough, or complicated enough skill set, to access larger amounts of salary and benefits.
That comes later.
And further up the working world food chain.
Get the job, get the experience, and move on!
Move on to the jobs that PAY $15.00 an hour.
And by the way, before anyone begins to carp that the “man is keeping you down” and these great high paying jobs aren’t there for you…..try this formula for success;
Stay in school, work hard, stay off drugs, observe the law, maintain a suitable appearance, and show some initiative!
It’s a formula that seems to have worked well for a couple of centuries….
Demanding that the government regulate the compensation formulas for private industry is just plain antithetical to the way everything operates.
Or…..perhaps if you do not agree….you might prefer to pay $11.50 for a Big Mac.
Is that for here?
Or to go?
