Petition Tag - discount
This video explains why? A Soldier and active Marine asking a Starbucks employee for a military discount, and couldn't get one.
He has served our country, he should get a discount. Everyone who shows a military ID should receive a discount.
The Government has launched a “reinvigorated” Right to Buy scheme for public sector tenants that will provide £75,000 discounts to help social tenants into home ownership. This means that tenant will be given 35% discount and 1% for every year they have been a social housing tenant.
However, this does not include tenants who are under the right to aquire scheme, this scheme offers between £9000 and £16000 dependant on where they live. The government state there are currently no plans for a change in right to aquire discount policy.
So again why is one group of Tenants being treated differently from another group of Tenant. We all Public Sector Tenants.
I am a Military wife, my husband and I recently got new phones and internet through Verizon Wireless. In the Store we were told I could get the Military discount on my phones and the internet, we were told that my bill would be $180.00 a month for all three services. The next day they had added a feature to my phones and I called to see why.
I was told it was not optional and my bill would go up by $20.00 per month, but that the discount had been applied. When I got my bill the discount had not been applied, I called again and they said it could take 1-2 billing cycles. The next bill came and there was no discount, my bill was $236.00! I checked my email and found a message from Verizon stating that I had been denied because I am a spouse, that the account holder must be Military to receive the discount!
Every other organization I have been to offers the same respect and discount to Spouses as they do for Soldiers, I have military ID and I am allowed on military bases. I may not have a rank but that does not make me any less MILITARY!
We want to raise our concern over the recently released anti-inflation policies, one of which sees local full time students to enjoy half-price concession whilst taking the Mass Transit Railway and Kowloon Bus. We believe this is unfair to all Hong Kong permanent residents who are studying overseas.
Our parents are both citizens and taxpayers of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, and they are hit by spiraling inflation as much as, if not worse than, everyone else. Moreover, we are both full time students and Hong Kong residents. Thus, it is well within reasons that we should be included in this scheme. Yet this so-called relief package does not in any way benefit us, and our families are also part of the society. On the other hand, it only alleviates the pressure of certain minority groups and fails to ease the plight of the general public, especially those among the middle-income families. This only serves to aggravate the inequality and resentment within the society.
Discount-price transportation fare policy is carried out among many leading economies. For example, Young Persons’ Rail Card of the National Rail Company in the United Kingdom allows any youth between 16 and 25 living or studying in the country to pay only 2/3 of the original fare, The Student Railway Pass of Tokyo Metro Company in Japan lets students travel between stations on the specified routes for free. In view of this, Hong Kong, suggested by your government as the Asia’s world city, should also follow the trend. Otherwise, your anti-inflation measures will be seen as favouring a small number of the population and working against your own government’s policies, and Hong Kong’s image as an international city may be damaged.
Lidl To Open In Drogheda Immediately If RGDATA Were To Remove Their Appeal.
The Lidl discount food store has made a commitment to commence construction of their store at the new M1 Retail Park if RGDATA were to withdraw their appeal.
The people of Drogheda could have to wait for a further six months before receiving a decision from An Bord Pleanala.
After receiving the approval form Drogheda Borough Council on the 7th July last the people of the town were so disappointed to find out that RGDATA could prevent Lidl from opening in Drogheda like this."
Lidl who's closest store would be in Balbriggan is due to open in Ardee and Dundalk within the next three months leaving Drogheda the largest town in the country without a store yet again. The company confirmed through survey's carried out on its Balbriggan store that over 40% of its business was from Drogheda showing a high level of leakage from the town.
Who are RGDATA you ask?
RGDATA- Supervalu / Spar / Centre / Londis / Mace and Cost Cutters are all local members of this organisation.
Considerable pressure is mounting on local RGDATA representatives to remove the appeal lodged against Lidl granting of planning permission.
RGDATA have stated that this is a Board policy to object and lodged appeals on all applications for discount food stores that are not located in town centres throughout the Country. Why can RGDATA who supposedly represent the smaller food stores try and delay or even prevent the development of a Lidl store in Drogheda after its has the backing of the Council Planners, Councillors and the people.
WE BELIEVE in the age old tradition of beer drinking. As Benjamin Franklin once said, "beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy".
On the other hand, discount beer is proof that God also likes to mess with our minds every once in a while. WE RECOGNIZE that there is money to be made from the sale of discount beer and that not everyone can afford the good stuff. Oh sure... there are more noble causes that we could take up.
Yet, we cannot sit back and watch one more poor wretch walk out of the beer store trying to conceal the swill-in-box that some would pass off as beer. Besides, all the good causes are already taken. We are PiSSD that people are compelled to compromise their standards when it comes to beer and we are PiSSD that some brewers are taking advantage of the poor, the thirsty, the befuddled masses.
WE COMMIT ourselves, one bartender, one voice, one beer at a time - to make a better tasting world for everyone.
