Can't wait for McCain's sound bite on the Sunday morning shows.....
Call the state offices, of course, they are all on vacation from DC...
$50/hr x 40 hrs/week = $2000/week x 50 weeks = $100,000 a year. Yeah, I'll take that.
It's not the lettuce job that people don't want -- it's living in Arizona, home to that idiot McCain.
McCain knows about picking lettuce - his buddies picked all kinds of Federal Reserve lettuce during the Keating Five scandals.
Link? Or are you here to stir the pot?
Ummmm, minor point, he didn't say for a whole year, he said for picking season...
I'll bet he's paying with RUBBER CHECKS!
Is this stunt going to blow up in his face or what?
I can't imagine a better way to get an extra 50,000 illegals crossing the border just at the thought.
What an idiot!
Holy cow, a 1997 sign-up date!
They only pick lettuce from the end of November to the middle of March in Yuma.
...sign me up.
Is the catch just that it's a fraudulent offer, or is there something else?
I'd pick lettuce for $50 an hour..
Thanks for the reminder. He was just picking Iceberg Lettuce that invaders were unable to pick.

"$50/hr x 40 hrs/week = $2000/week x 50 weeks = $100,000 a year. Yeah, I'll take that."
I wonder how many weeks a year you can pick lettice - what if picking season is only 10 weeks?
The nitwit made that "offer" over a week ago. I'm surprised it didn't show up here sooner. I haven't seen much of it in any of the so called media. I wouldn't spend too much time looking for it in the Sunday shows.
At $50 an hour, you know it's gotta be government lettuce.
I'm sure this will be tax free income, correctamundo?
I'd rather pick ILLEGAL aliens out of society and deport them for $50/hour.
