frame rot

Could have been made out of the same steel that Toyota trucks were made of.

Sounds like too much to pay just to find out who died.

You took all of what i said

You took all of what i said and turned it all around to hear what you wanted to hear. Had i took that one day job and rented a hotel room it would have cost me more that the travelling. I do not work under the table i hardly ever drwaw unemployment in ME I travel out of state to work in many nuclear plants and draw out of state unemployment. You just don't get it I agree with you that any job is better than none. It is just the fact that sometimes it is just not feasable. Well turn this around again and try to show i am just a smoocher. Sounds like your runnung for office somewheres. I am etired on soc sec i have paid my dues and still trying to earn a little bit. Why don't you aim your stuff at everyone that just does this collecting to live on there are many many families in maine especially in lewiston that live off foods stamps, disability people came in frim samalia. There parents come here, the kids come here and brag abou how good it is in lewiston. they live at the corner of blake and maple.
Apparently you have never taken a job and gone out of state having enough money to get there and live on till you get your first paycheck and worrying if you wyii have enough money to cover your bills there and the ones you have at home. MY house alonr costs me $1,000.00 a month not counting utilities. When i travel my my hotel room is about $1200.00 per month not counting food. So do you see that going to a job costs much more money. Engage your brain before engaging mouth.

Unemployment dips

When we go to work, we don't expect to get hurt we don't even want it The they try to blame it on everything else but the job. We try to get unions to help us out as far as collective bargaining and job safety. You see if you get hurt it mightmbe because you are rushed or the employer did not have the necessary equipment. I's never their fault. Even if OSHA IS CALLED, OSHA tells the company and has to make an appoinment for a visit. Usually 2 or 3 months after they have received the call. The companys move the jobs out of state or the country. Just how much do you think the are paing in unemployment, workmans comp, insurance overseas? I am surprised that the republicans have not come up with a democratic guillotine and started chopping heads. You have to take in consideration the gas when you lose a job. I have been asked to drive to bucksport (thru the laborers union) to work there. Here goes it is a 200 mile round trip and it takes 6 (SIX) hours for roundtrip. I make 16.02 an hour when i work which is far inbetween cause maine does not have any work. Well that 16.02 times 8 hours gives me $128.16 for the days Now we taked taxes out at %15.00 WOW sounds like I.m playing with the big boys now but i assure you i am not. that brings my pay down 108.93 now we take the gas out 15.6 gallons of gas @ 3.949 which comes to 61.60 sutracted from 108.93 that comes to 47.33 for my days work. You people in office have no clue how hard it is for all of us. Just figure out that job at minimum wage. Ya there might be work in the other state of maine I don't think many people would sell and leave everything they have and buy a new place in order to make more money. Why don't you try it for a while? Drive a hundred miles a day before you get to work and then dive another hundred miles a day before supper
