This show was just full of lies!When I signed DeMaio's petition, they told me it was to create more jobs that would help me earn more than a minimum wage! Instead I find out today on These Days it's just one more way for DeMaio and his business & corporate pals to get rich by squeezing us working men & women out of ANY benefits or a decent wage.
It's a lie that only 1 person wanted their name off his petition. I WANT TO TAKE MY NAME OFF HIS PETITION! I'm glad These Days was on & I could hear the truth because there's NO WAY I'd have signed if I knew what this petition was really about.
I don't belong to a union but sure wish I did! I work for minimum wage, shop at 99 cents store for food & everything I need, get my medicines at the county clinic & my grown kids have to help pay my share of utilities at the apartment I share with my 2 friends.
If I didn't live & work close to the library, I couldn't even send this email. Earning minimum wage & being poor makes it easier for DeMaio & his pals to lie to us and keep us from speaking out or making our voices heard.
I didn't even know who Carl DeMaio or Marti Emerald were before I heard this show, but THANK YOU MARTI EMERALD for standing up for us when most of us are too busy just trying to earn enough to get by.
