They are a tire and wheel company. No alignments no brake checks nothing. They offer tire and wheel services and that’s it. You can work there with minimal experience, they will train you, and pay you very well.
At 18 I was making 16 dollars an hour because I proved I could learn and uphold the rules, went from a tire tech to the back room manager in a year.
Then I got into college where there weren’t discount tires and the regional manager came and offered me a full time position for when I graduate, salary, % of store sales the whole shebang. It’s a phenomenally run company that isn’t afraid to reward people with good work ethics.
Now, if recent polls prove accurate, Discount Tire has taken a stand against roughly half the state’s registered voters.
Under Prop 205, it would be legal for adults of drinking age to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, which could be purchased at a state-run system of retail shops or grown in limited quantities for personal use. Possession of more than an ounce up to 2.5 ounces would be a non-arrestable civil offense subject to a $300 fine.
Kathy Inman of MomForce AZ and activist Iain Davidson were among those who were quick to call for a boycott. But the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Arizona — the organization that is backing the ballot initiative — didn’t get behind it immediately.
“We are disappointed Discount Tire has made the decision to support marijuana prohibition,” the campaign said in a written statement in response to New Times’s request for comment. “But for the next two weeks, we will continue to educate Arizonans about the benefits of ending prohibition and taxing and regulating marijuana sales to adults.”
$1 million won’t automatically allow Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy to tip the scales against Prop 205. Polls indicate that the vote will be close, depending largely on the election-day turnout of Democrats and young voters. But Halle’s cash means ARDP can flood the airwaves with more of its Reefer Madness-style propaganda and put more “vote no” signs on street corners.
While the pro-Prop 205 campaign relies almost solely on contributions from the national Marijuana Policy Project and the Arizona medical-marijuana dispensaries that will make millions from the initiative, ARDP taps a wide range of well-heeled sources, like the Arizona Chamber of Commerce.
Last month, the group accepted $500,000 from Insys Therapeutics, a synthetic THC-maker under investigation for its aggressive marketing of a deadly opiate.
The son can grow some balls and stand up for what he believes in then. Although, if what I’m reading is true, that could be a risk to the hefty trust fund I’m sure he’s sitting on.
