10:58 am - Something struck a nerve
I just clicked back on the
"I want my money today! It's my money. I want it right now!" yelled one former campaign worker
story.

It looks like it struck a nerve: 
Note: The comments tool has been disabled for this story. It is WTHR.com's policy to approve all comments before they are posted because we aim to maintain a civil dialogue on our site. However, because of the large volume of comments generated by this story, we do not have the time to approve them - therefore they have been turned off. We are sorry for any inconvenience. While our goal is to encourage interactivity on our site, in this case, we simply do not have the staff to devote the time to approving comments.
I can see why. On the specifics, it's a sad thing. The folks who were working for ten bucks an hour were almost certainly people who needed the money; wealthy Obamamaniacs who pounded the pavement (and I'm sure that there were at least some of those) almost certainly would have done it for free, or less.

But I think I can see why it caught on.
"I worked nine hours a day for 4 days and got paid half of what I should have earned," said Randall Waldon.
With the tax hikes coming, I think that'll have a lot of resonance for a lot of folks.

Some sort of code to insert 'currently watched journal' cause if I click rather than copy it my journal is at the beginning.

Delete this comment if fixed. :)

No worries here, right? I mean, it's likely Randall Waldon has already signed a Card Check petition and plans to be Union for 2012... all taken care of!
