tv   MONEY With Melissa Francis  FOX Business  April 30, 2015 2:00pm-3:01pm EDT

2:00 pm
mayweather-pacquiao fight. she is sitting down with the heavyweight champion, vladimir klitschko. you don't want to miss that conversation. "money" starts here. melissa, thank you so much. cost of you are curfew as things heat up back in baltimore. restaurants bars taxicabs in baltimore are preparing for the worst. finding success where others failed. elon musk is how he plans to put an end to your energy bill. playing the field to miami dolphin player moonlighting as uber driver. battle between environmentalists and big business. at issue this guy right here. you recognize him, that is my good friend the delta smelt. he is nearly extinct. even when they say it's not it is always about money. melissa: from new york to seattle cities feeling the impact of the fallout in
2:01 pm
baltimore. protesters across the country flooding the streets in support and while a 10:00 p.m. curfew in baltimore succeeded in curbing violence, it also represents a real threat to local businesses, with one bar owner saying the economic to of the curfew will be greater than damage from the riots. here is discuss it all, charlie gasparino, paul vina from "the wall street journal." todd starnes from fox news radio. todd, start with you. guess what, you have to pay your taxes renew your license city inspection. you have people who drive taxicabs. you know curfew is in. they're not making any money. >> that's right, they're not making any money. the president when he gave the speech in the rose garden spoke derisively about the cvs that burned down. those were jobs that burned down. people need to understand there is much more than the people marching in the streets. what about the barbecue joint owner who, again was trying to defend his own property? he had to stand out there with an axe because the police wouldn't come to protect him.
2:02 pm
>> the point i tried to make two days ago about this, is that these businesses and these cities that are part of violent protests have a very tough time coming back. i tried to make that point several times the other day and it is based on fact. if you look at newark, new jersey. if you look at parts of l.a. that were, there were violent riots. >> right. >> never came back. for every washington d.c. that did come back which you have the federal government spending gazillions of dollars, you have baltimore and many other cities that face these violent protests that never come back. knew york, new jersey is perfect example. the economic to of these things is great and long-lasting. melissa: people in these community, paul, they had stories from some construction workers working on the zoo got burned down. i don't have a job. another woman who cleans houses. bus isn't stopping in her neighborhood. she has to take a taxi which eat up all the money during the day. if she doesn't go she loses her job. it is terrible.
2:03 pm
>> i just think not of baltimore, newark, ferguson all these places, these cities have been hollowed out, dead cities. factories left 40 years ago. nobody figured out how to get jobs backs in there. people, hard-working people but many of them are leading dead end lives. there is no real economic incentive for them. this what you need to do this is what i really think, what you need to do is really v. vamp education teaching kids 21st century skills. teach them how to build computer. build something into the technology age to take into the neighborhoods and sell to their friends. melissa: what was that second thing? >> raspberry pipe. it's a mother board, cheap way to build a computer. using these in emerging markets. they're teaching kids how to build something for themselves. >> first you have to stop burning down the neighborhood. >> you're right about that. that is a key point here. there are two economic stories. there is immediate economic story, obviously, construction workers. there is long-term economic
2:04 pm
story. do the cities ever come back? the record is very dismal on that. >> you're right. melissa: meanwhile democrats in congress are upping ante on minimum wage introducing legislation that would increase the rate to $12 an hour by 2020. that hike even more than the 10.10 wage favored by president obama. what do you think, paul? >> i think minimum wage is become a complete political football. i think actual level doesn't matter. what they should do index it to inflation to be done with it. that is what should happen. 10, 12, 15, whatever it is will be too low. inflation will eat away at it. nobody wants to index to inflation. melissa: you can't survive. living wage. none of these are living wages whether 10, 12, 7.25. these are part-time jobs. you're not supposed to live on them. even cbo says if you raise to 10-point tone we lose half a million jobs. if you raise it to 12 it will be worse. >> you have a problem when you start telling small businesses what they have to pay people. one thing to be telling ge, pay
2:05 pm
people $15 an hour. another thing where most of these folks work on minimum wage telling a guy that owns the chipolte you know franchise across the street you have to pay minimum wage. melissa: or knockoff that makes tacos. >> whatever. they operate on extremely small margins. melissa: the apple watch reportedly plagued by a defect that will cause shipping delays. the so-called tapping engine notification feels like a little tap on wrist, sound annoying breaking down over time. paul you're a tech guy. >> i want my watch without the tap engine. last thing i want is one more device telling me -- melissa: tapping. how irritating. >> can i call tim cook to get one without this? melissa: i like that. todd starnes i don't see you with a little tap, tap to your wrist. >> i thought about strapping this. it is not a good look. melissa: it's a good look. battle between new york city taxi industry and uber is heating up.
2:06 pm
you have exclusive details? >> melrose financial, not a household name for america, in new york city, own taxi or taxi medallion the right to pick up people on street. melrose does most of the financing. they're doing two things. they're threatening a lawsuit that demanding new york a-f eric schneiderman new york city's failure to enforce taxi laws. the failure is this. something on the books, only a person with medallion can pick up a street hail. what is going on with uber we love it and use it, they effectively picking up street hails. here is the other rub here. what the medallion financing company is saying allowing uber to encroach on territory not enforcing law basically fixing price new york city is guilty of manipulating price of medallions charging too high a cost. if you bid this thing out it would be much lower given the fact this thing with uber.
2:07 pm
this is the next big battleground for uber. this is right now a sort of kind of side issue but it is going to heat up. they will sue new york city because they have no other choice because they will go out of business. we'll see what happens. we'll see if schneiderman does go in. this is something he might do. melissa: meanwhile looking for pleasant fulfilling job with the federal government, think about that you might want to steer clear of the department of homeland security. employees picked dhs as the worst federal agency to work for. that is according to an annual survey conducted by the office of personnel management. i liked this list, todd starnes. nasa was best. i don't think that is surprising. both my kids want to work for nasa the 74% of people liked working there. >> that is a cool place to work. homeland security dhs, i kind of get that especially folks at tsa you would think the perks that some of them have to their jobs over there sitting looking at all of us acting the fool going through the security checkpoints. melissa: you have endless power. you can sort of stop anyone going through and give them a
2:08 pm
terrible time. >> you can except for people who actually be profiled to blow things up. melissa: right. those people you let go. paul, what do you think. are we too cynical on this one? veterans affairs don't like working there either. >> we're journalists. this is really big agency cobbled together 10 years ago. i have to think that they haven't quite figured out what the focus should be. that is of a affecting morale. the focus is so wide. so i think that is -- >> 10 years to figure out the focus? melissa: there you go. one colorado mom learning exactly how to cookie crumbles after sending her daughter to school with oreos in her lunch box. lisa pierson received note from the school this is public school setting. all children are required to have a fruit a vegetable and healthy snack from home along with milk lunchables chip, fruit snacks, peanut butter -- >> peanut butter? melissa: not considered to be healthy. this morning on "fox & friends"
2:09 pm
pierson responded to oreo shaming. >> i don't think we'll send her to school with oreos again. only certain small number of days left in school. so she will going with her normal, healthy lunch she always been going with. melissa: todd? >> okay i'm a nutter-butter man but i've been known to eat peanut butter every now and again. this is example government, this is michelle obama's let's move campaign. look, you have had a rough day learning abcs, you like kick back to eat a carrot stick? give me a break. give the kids an oreo. >> not totally absurd to give them -- you see some of the garbage they usually serve. melissa: not serving. this is what they're bringing from home. it was guidelines they have to have a fruit, vegetable -- >> what is wrong with that? melissa: don't tell me what to feed my kid. >> feed them poison. melissa: do what i like? >> you can kill your child. melissa: i will feed my child whatever i like. i'm not harming. i will feed my child whatever i
2:10 pm
like. >> but your kid has no right to go to that school. melissa: to public school, yes they do. >> public school can impose standards. what about -- melissa: every right, i have ever right. >> check with your lawyer. they have every right -- melissa: [inaudible] >> they have every right not to let your kid through the door, you know that? because they have an oreo? >> they have that right. they have that right. yes they do. yes they do. melissa: straight from charlie gasparino. i will feed my child whatever i like. nfl seems ready to make the call. superhero mario and fame must james miss. my tampa bay bucs first on the clock. hillary clinton gets her "burn notice." senator bernie sanders first to challenge the clinton machine. smart money coming up. ♪

2:15 pm
hillary. he will get some of the far left vote. the scary thing is, the democratic party, actually has moved in the direction of bernie sanders in the last couple of years. so i wouldn't, i wouldn't rule him out completely. but not going to be a major threat. melissa: i watch "house" cards. did this as favor, just to get in there and act like there was someone else. have someone to take hits. i love when he said this is rigged economy which works for rich and powerful. not working ordinary americans. the country does not just belong to a handful of billionaires. i felt he was talking about hillary there. >> that is good point. like very subtle. melissa: yeah. >> but he is going to run against wall street. he mentioned wall street you know at least four or five times during his announcement about how the rich are getting richer and poor are getting poorer. this amplifies the theme of what this campaign melissa, will be all about, democrats, whether it is hillary or bernie sanders or whether elizabeth warren will play this, you know rich versus
2:16 pm
poor trump card. republicans better be ready for it. they better have a message of growth to counter it. melissa: who is best positioned to have a message of growth to counter that? >> you know who knows at this point. really, truly, a lot of these republicans are just stuck their toes in the water. we really haven't seen them on the big stage yet. unlike 80% of the republicans who truly haven't made up their mind who it is going to be. on republican side melissa, we're all waiting for jeb bush. he has been so busy raising money hasn't said a lot about what his agenda will be. when he steps out that the will be a big event on the republican side. melissa: steve moore, thank you very much. the nfl picking newest millionaires in chicago. the tampa bay bucs are playing coy, the smart money, well, on jameis winston as the first overall pick. that selection slated to get at least a $30 million payout. who better than our own charles
