Which link is that? And yes, next week will most definitely be very interesting. I don't see how the GOP can possibly defend Laroque's actions in the last couple of weeks. And to think that I was once one of his greatest supporters!



If by chance any of this dialogue gets flagged and removed, go to either of these two Face Book pages:


NC Extended Unemployment Benefits | Facebook (ours)


Reinstate NC Extended Benefits for the Unemployed Now | Facebook (someone else)

The richest people tend to be the cheapest. They dont know what it is like to make a regular mans wage. Middle class people do, so tend to be more genorus.

When I was in my early 20's I worked for Domino's Pizza as a delivery driver. I would average $3 a devliery, unless I went to a rich neighbourhood. There I would average about 50 cents.

But still the article quoted you as saying the work he wanted you to do should have been done by 2 guys, that is what I was wondering about

GOP legislator pays jobless worker $8 for yard work, chides her in email « The Progressive Pulse

Kathryn “Cinnamon” Treadway spoke to N.C. Policy Watch as well today, and said she only did an hour’s worth of work because LaRoque wanted her to haul away large tree limbs and other heavy manual labor that she didn’t think she could physically do on such a hot day.

That was real amazing for that to happen. Even though not a real job it just good enough to know that a voice was heard. When I read that in article is was a coincidence because I reside in Wayne County also. Maybe we could have went up there together!
