PHOTO-OP COSTS WORKERS
WaPo reports that
About 340 workers at an Omaha plastics factory will lose pay or have to work next Saturday to make up for time lost during a visit by President Bush on Monday to promote his “jobs and growth plan,” their boss said today.
Brad Crosby, president of Airlite Plastics Co., said about 170 of his workers will lose a full day’s pay and another 170 will be docked for part of their pay for Monday unless they make up the time they spend attending Bush’s speech.
What kind of lame-brain is Crosby? Surely, the free advertising and PR boost of having the President give a speech at your rinky dink factory is worth paying workers for their shift?
