America Inline — You’ve Gots Mail
In an apparent mix up (or more like an ominous sign of things to come), people working hard for Chairman 0bama failed to “get paid” like they were promised. Several hundred 0bama campaign workers were in long lines and angry over supposed unpaid wages. One incensed worker put it all into prose only a great poet could manage.
“I want my money today! It’s my money. I want it right now!” yelled one former campaign worker.
As the day wore on, several people began to get really mad and wondered when they were “gettin’ paid”. Speak power to truth my friend….
“Still that’s not right. I’m disappointed. I’m glad for the president, but I’m disappointed in this system,” said Diane Jefferson, temporary campaign worker.
You’re disappointed in the system? Get on the bus my friend. You think that line was long…. wait until you have a tumor and need a CT Scan.
“It should have been $480. It’s $230,” said Imani Sankofa.
“They gave us $10 an hour. So we added it. I added up all the hours so it was supposed to be at least $120. All I get is $90,” said Charles Martin.
Hmmmm? Mr. Martin worked $120 dollars worth and only got paid $90? That’s just like a 25% tax rate!!!!! Imani worked even harder and earned $480 but only got paid $230? Oh my God, that’s like a 47% tax rate!!!! They shouldn’t be allowed to take more from you just because you worked longer hours. That must be very taxing on Imani.
“I worked nine hours a day for 4 days and got paid half of what I should have earned,” said Randall Waldon.
What? You were taxed at a 50% rate and Imani was taxed only 47% just because you worked harder and longer and earned more? Oh, hell no!!!!!
Some people weren’t satisfied with filling out a claim form for money they felt was still due to them.
Yeah! No American should have to fill out countless forms to get their money. I wonder if they’re going to make you wait until April 15 to give you your hard earned money too? Assholes!!!
“They say that they gonna call you or they going to mail it to you, but I don’t know. We’ll see what happens,” said Antron Grose.
“Talking about they’ll mail it to us. I ain’t worried about that, man. They’re not going to mail nothin’,” said Martin.
I’m going out on a limb here and venture to say that the reporter got Antone’s name wrong; unless of course his momma was a big Voltron fan. But it’s good to see that Martin has faith in the system and believes they’re going to not not mail him somethin’ soon though. You still have hope for that change my man, and I respec that (even though for two straight days now I’ve walked by the bus station and there’s still poor people waiting on the bus).
Just like me, Martin is not going to not think 0bama is not a great president and pay his bills on time. Just don’t let them float you a microwaved check on the Friday before a three day weekend Martin. If that’s going to be the case, just pay me in cheese, thank you very much.
