Why I do declare, why do yaw'll get your ole knickers in a twist over slavery. Shoot fire it is done all over the world. Now you all do be knowning that them there slaves are just making sure that those there Koch brothers, that lovely Walton family, that cutie mittens Romney and well you know the rest of them special people continue to get richer and continue to use their superior intelligence and good ole christianity to rule over us poor ole dumb uneducated masses. SNARK, but sadly slavery is alive and well all over the world! Go to the central valley of California and you will see scenes that will make you think you are in one of the worst third world countries! Have seen it and thanks to not owning a gun am able to post on this thread. What I saw made me want to shoot the owners and the slave driving foremen! No would never shoot to kill, but making go from roosters to hens, oh hell YES! N & S thanks for the post.

Con't due to my business am on the road at least 30+ weeks a year. At one hotel I stayed at was SHOCKED to' learn that the ladies who clean the rooms earned all of $4.00 per room! The hotel which is rateerą FOUR STARS can get away with this form of modern day slavery since these poor ladies are hired as independant contractors! No Holiday pay nor vacation pay and of course no medical benefits! You try doing 20 rooms of changing sheets, towels, vacuming, empty trash, replace the toiletries, washing out the coffee pot and replacing the coffee, cream etc...... All for FOUR DOLLARS PER ROOM! Hotel mattress' are heavy as hell and most of these hard working women end up with major back problems by their late forties or early fifties. I would love to see any politician, especially the GOP/worthless arses be able to do four rooms! And the minimum wage of $7.25 and hour is SLAVE WAGES! People cannot get ahead with those wages. I implore all please, please go out and VOTE it HAS never been more important than NOW. Our democracy as we have known it truly is hanging in the balance. Also leave at least a $5.00 tip daily for the cleaning ladies when you do stay at a hotel.
