Now that the dust has settled and Clint Eastwood is back to arguing with wooden chairs in Hollywood, it’s time to begin the herculean task of addressing every single lie made and said at the RNC in Tampa. They might as well dubbed the RNC the Breitbart Convention since they based the entire theme on a carefully edited soundbite taken out of context. Of course I’m referring to the so-called “We Built It” mantra, which appears to Mitt Romney’s “Yes we can,” though it’s more realistically ”No we didn’t; we did what we do best and relied on the laborers we hate to do our heavy lifting”.
It seems hordes of janitors and workers toiled around the clock for the past few days at the RNC and, worse yet, it seems they did so below minimum wage.
From Huffington Post:
Carolyn Walker said she has been cleaning the convention center for 13 years. She had been making $8 per hour until a few years ago, when the cleaning contract went to another company, Cleanevent USA. The new company meant a new, downsized paycheck. She’s now making minimum wage — $7.67 per hour. But that wasn’t the only hit to her wallet.
