Kane Watch: Hot Tip for Eugene

From Charlie Sykes CNI column, via Sykes Writes:

Last year BuySeasons hired 218 central city residents and expected to hire even more after the relocation.

This was big news because Milwaukee has one of the worst African-American unemployment rates in the country.

Gwen Moore, who Gene always seems to have a soft-spot for, was one of the few involved in seeing to it that BuySeasons won't be moving to Milwaukee.

Black Milwaukeeans losing out on employment opportunities from the state's fastest growing business because, in part, of a black politician.

Will she get an asterisk now as well?

No she won't. If you're black, and hang with Eugene, you get "the pass". You should know that by now! Rough day?

I don't have the numbers, but Sykes also mentioned the pay rate for their employees. If I remember they were in the $10 to $16 range. Not minimum wage jobs.

Oops, my bad, he has it posted in the column you linked to, the pay range is $9 to $16 an hour.

(I was going off memory from his radio discussion.)

She won't get an * because as a liberal, she believes that government should employ all people and that private industry has no place in her America.

Clint,
That is the definition of a socialist.

Peter - you mean that there is a difference? Both want my money. Both want to redistribute it for 'the common good' Both are in favor of gov't run health care.

What is the big difference between the two?
