Chicago Mother and 13-Year-Old Daughter Charged In Teen’s Fatal Stabbing
On Tuesday, a Chicago mother and her daughter were arrested in the fatal stabbing of a 15-year-old girl.
According to ABC 7, during a street fight on Saturday, Tamika Gayden, 35, was charged with first degree murder for allegedly giving a knife to her 13-year-old daughter who stabbed and killed DeKayla Dansberry. Gayden’s daughter, who isn’t named because she is a minor, was sent to juvenile court.
The police believe that the fight, that may have started on social media, could have been over a boy. Prosecutors say a witness told them the teen suspect was seen washing blood off the knife and allegedly said, “I killed her, I killed her,” ABC 7 noted.
Dansberry was a freshman track star and cheerleader at Johnson College Prep. RIP DeKayla.
Pay Me My Money! 4.2 Million Salaried Workers Will Soon Be Eligible For Overtime Pay
How often do you work overtime and don’t get paid extra? Well thanks to the U.S. Department of Labor, millions of Americans won’t have that issue anymore.
According to Colorlines, starting December 1 for those who make less than $47,476 annually ($913 per week), their employer must pay them a time-and-a-half going over 40 hours a week. This will be great for families who need the extra money, especially Black workers who on average make $673 a week, compared to $1,032 among Asians and $857 for whites.
Labor Secretary Tom Perez told NPR stressed that this new move will result into three major benefits. “They’re either going to get more money … more time with their family, or everybody is going to get clarity,” he said.
In other words, employers can either pay time-and-a-half for overtime work, raise salaries above the threshold or limit employees to 40 hours a week.
“Our whole mission here is about strengthening and growing the middle class. In order to do that, we need to ensure that middle class jobs pay middle class wages,” Perez added.
We hear that!

Fix It Jesus! Pastor Admits To Lying About Whole Foods Giving Him A Homophobic Cake
Last month, Texas pastor Jordan Brown filed a lawsuit against Whole Foods, claiming the store sold him a wedding cake with the words “Love Wins F*g,” written in icing. But Whole Foods vowed this never happened and said in a statement, “the team member wrote ‘Love Wins’ at the top of the cake as requested by the guest, and that’s exactly how the cake was packaged and sold at the store.”
Well, when faced with a countersuit, Brown surprisingly called off his lawsuit on Monday, saying “The company did nothing wrong. I was wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story,” the New York Times wrote.
Brown also apologized to the LGBT community, the baker that he accused of writing defacing his cake, his partner, his lawyer and the Church of Open Doors, where he is the pastor, the Times noted.
