Like you need another reason to hate them

NPR had a story this morning about businesses located in N.O. and the compensation they are offering local employees:

3001 Inc. (small satellite mapping company) - pay all employees through end of October at least
Harrah's Casino - pay for 90 days for all 7500 employees plus pick up health care costs
Northrup Grumman (shipbuilding) - did an immediate direct deposit for all employees for 2 weeks.
McDonald's - paying all area employees for 2 weeks.
Wal-Mart - 3 stinkin' days.

When asked about their relatively, um, modest compensation effort, a Wal-Mart spokesperson responded that they are helping employees in different ways, like trying to find them work at store locations that are still operating.

Yeah, you lazy-ass hurricane victims, fuck looking for grandma! Get the fuck back to work and worry about where you're going to live after your shift ends, ya freeloader.

Oh, and have a nice day, y'all.
