Two half days of jury duty, which involved nothing more than sitting around, have reaped me the above massive amount of cash. Fifteen bucks for the service, $5.10 in mileage.
I’ve always wanted to be one of those guys getting rich on a fat government paycheck.
Let’s bear in mind that there were 50 in the jury pool, so it cost the county a grand just in jury costs before the trial even started. All to try some poor schmuck for public intoxication. There might be something wrong with this system.
How come they don’t adhere to the minimum wage laws?
Why don’t cops obey the laws? Who’s going to stop them?
