Scott Walker will let you know he wants to do to the country what he has done to Wisconsin.
He even has the ad to prove it!
Scott Walker is so proud of his accomplishments that he is showcasing them here for all of the world to see. In order to survive as a middle class family, you need two job(at least).
At 1;19 Mr. Smith is working at the factory for $11/hr, hoping to get in 30+ hours so he will be able to keep his healthcare and his son with diabetes and his daughter with Asthma, the care and meds that they need:
Immediately after his shift is over Mr. Smith has to do the McDonalds drive thru value menu to grab a bite to eat and head to his second job. He run a local store, which has been in the family for 4 generations but now employs a bare bones staff and forces him to work an extra 30+ hours a week to keep the doors open. He occasionally wishes that WEDC would hand him $7,000,000 in taxpayer money to open his business, instead of the out of state company that wants to relocate here and is trying to put him out of business.
At least he gets to work with his wife and they get to take turns watching their sons plays and their daughters basketball games. Well the home ones anyway.
I know you will say, what a great hard worker he is, working 70 hours a week. He knows what its like to be a true American. Agreed! What could possibly go wrong with working multiple jobs?
We at Cogdis were not able to ge ta full interview with Mr. Smith, apparently once the owners broke the union, the break times went away also. However, we were able to ask him, with as much as he works, how is he able to keep such a big smile on his face?
The answer is simple. He is one of the few that work at the factory. that still have all of their fingers!
H/T Rebecca and Nicole for catching and capturing this!
