Well, this will help someone

Just not the people who need it. Cool, pay people even less money, that will help them get back on their feet. Then they will try and spread this idea around the country. For the good of the nation since we will all be affected by the results of this catastrophe come this winter. Just like the movie Oil Storm this winter is going to be brutal.
Bush allows Katrina contractors to pay below prevailing wage - Sep. 8, 2005: "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush issued an executive order Thursday allowing federal contractors rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to pay below the prevailing wage."

People will be freezing in their homes. Here in San Jose the news reported that PG&E customers can expect to pay up to 40% more than last year. My mom hasn't had a raise in several years, minimum wage has caught up with her and she couldn't afford to earn less. It is easy to make pronouncements about what will help the economy (and he has such a great track record) when you have a job, regular food and a warm and dry home.

I just wish he was on the same planet as the rest of the world.
