One thing I'll say for BushCo, he can always be depended upon to do the sleasiest fucking thing possible.

Bush yesterday suspended minimum wage rules for federal contractors that will be working to rebuild what Katrina destroyed.

So here you have a devastated region, with millions out of work, and the federal contractors do not have to pay even mimimum wage to the people they hire?

Let's imagine, with that many people trying to get a limited number of jobs, what the rush to the bottom wage will look like. People in that circumstance are gonna take anything they can get, and those fuckers know that.

It's not like government contracts don't benefit contractors. These are the most lucrative gigs you can get, if you are a Halliburton, say, or a subsidiary of, oh, Halliburton.

God, I hate them. What won't they do? Seriously, is there any craven self-serving act they won't commit?

If you can think of one, please reply. We'll start a list.

A short list.
