So, I was shot a link to this NYT article via email. Let’s see if I get this…2,100 janitors were each paid about $3.50 per hour with no overtime pay, vacation pay, sick pay, or benefits of any sort. They usually worked 7 days a week, during the middle of the night, and often put in 70+ hours per week. Not a one of them was smart enough to know they could have gotten a much better deal at any number of places that pay the federal minimum wage of $5.50 per hour and time-and-a-half for OT (and often with other modest benefits, like vacation time and holidays). That’s quite a lot of clueless janitors in one place, isn’t it? Or, is it perhaps just a little bit more plausible that these 2,100 janitors knew their options, and for whatever their reasons, exercised their freedom to stay with the arrangements they had bargained for? Of course, you’ll get no clue as to what it was that caused them to opt the way they did in an NYT article, that’s for sure. But here’s the sad part about this. You know, there’s almost nothing in the world that I admire or…
