Boxer Fundraiser Costs California Workers Paycheck

Coming to California to raise money for endangered Democratic Senator Barbara “Call me Ma’am” Boxer, President Obama stopping by at a plant receiving “stimulus” funds because it creates “green” jobs. Unfortunately, the federal government did not pay the company enough taxpayer dollars, er, dollars of the grandchildren of current taxpayers, to be able to pay the salaries of employees who have to take the day off because of the president’s visit:

Construction workers at the Solyndra Plant in Fremont will be spending the day at home Wednesday without pay as President Obama visits the company to praise its work on solar panels.

Union workers have been told not to come back until Thursday because of security concerns associated with the President’s visit.  Workers tell KRON 4′s Kate Thompson this day off means they won’t get paid.

“It’s with no pay and we have no choice,” construction worker Adam Bracamontes told Kate.  “We have to take a day off and come back Thursday.  We don’t get to meet the President.  We’re the workers and we don’t get to see him.”

Wonder what the president thinks about California’s current 12.6% unemployment rate.

And about all those dollars he’s raising for Mrs. Boxer, how many of them do you think will go into ads attacking soon-to-be Republican nominee Carly Fiorina?  

Some new kind of politics.
