Mondays paper had a small article at the bottom of the front page regarding the Labor Department’s fining of GTM. Wednesday’s paper has a bold headline at the top of the page that boasts “GTM to bring 650 jobs to city”. (The actual figure is 638 as I understand it, but 650 is close enough for newspaper work). Along with the article, there was a nice photo of the state jackass chatting with the CEO of GTM. The head jackass lauded GTM and said we need more companies like this, then went on to say “We’re not going to be able to do low-skill, low-wage items and compete in a global market-place.” Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.
I guess we now know the Mercury’s and the governor’s position on sweat shops. (I had already guessed that about the governor, but was a bit surprised that the Mercury would support such a plan.)
