Reich: Jobs Come First

Jobs Come First

The United States needs an auto industry because automobile jobs are good ones. They pay higher than average and provide good benefits.

I, for one, am thrilled that Mr. Reich is de facto [1] committed to providing above market wages and good benefits. 

And I trust that he will see to it that he puts his full and undivided efforts [2] as a current special advisor and past member of the board of directors at to make sure the employees and contractors at that fine organization are paid above market wages for their valued services and receive a handsome benefits package.

My informants [3] tell me that last year the independent contractors at could expect to make $8 to $12 an hour.  Rates for privately hired tutors go between $15 an hour if you live in fly-over country to north of $50 an hour in the Big City. 

Clearly this is an oversight and we can expect to live up to Mr. Reich's noble standards.

If the sauce is good for the UAW goose it's good for the gander.

[1] How ya likin' that Latin thing?
[2] I don't regard hypocrisy as a vice.  But some people have problems with the idea.
[3] By which I mean a quick google of course.
