Correction - the link in my previous post should have been: http://www.labor.ny.gov/formsdocs/factsheets/pdfs/P427.pdf Sorry about that.

It would be interesting if Ms. Tremmel could reconcile $42.34/hour for seven weeks and a max of $12,000 per worker with the "official" description of this program. The official description makes no mention of training, and says that the max is 1,040 hours and $12,000 ($11.54/hr?), with wages set to the higher of fed, state, or local minimum wages, or to the "...rates of pay for individuals employed in similar occupations ...." Kindly see here: http://www.labor.ny.gov/formsdocs/factsheet. Either the facts of the story are dramatically misstated (one fears, for dramatic effect), or there is a story behind the story that needs telling.

What an outrage!!! Only Gov't. would pay $43.00 an hour for unskilled labor. Just think how much further the 1.3 million grant would go and how much more clean up and restoration work could be accomplished if workers were paid a reasonable 12.-15.00 per hour. Remember this is not free money... tax payers are financing this grant thru their taxes!!!!
