Stephen LaRoque Hires More Unemployed Workers to Clean Up His Yard

A Republican politician in North Carolina has successfully recruited two unemployed workers to clean up his yard after the first jobless constituent he hired in May quit after just one hour.

Kathryn Treadway of Goldsboro, N.C., had dared state Rep. Stephen LaRoque to hire her so she could prove she wasn't too good for manual labor. But Treadway gave up because of a sore back and because she thought LaRoque was deliberately trying to humiliate her. He paid her $8.

LaRoque told HuffPost on Thursday that several laid off workers contacted him about the yard work after hearing about the job in the news. He said he's hired two people who've been working on his 3.5 acres for the past two weeks.

"They contacted me. They read about it, heard about it," he said. He's paying one guy $8 an hour and another guy $10 since that person had some of his own equipment. LaRoque described the work as "picking up tree limbs, raking... digging up some grass, pulling up weeds, getting it ready so I can put some more grass seed down. Basically yard work."

I do yard work for the neighbor on the street when he is gone on a trip. That money is helpful, but it don't put food on the table unless you want me to eat the weeds and grass.

This is chicken poop and sticks worse then the old chicken coop. Mighty big of him. A real low life scum!

I know, like he just singlehandedly solved the massive unemployment crisis by hiring 2 unemployed workers for peanuts. Now he'll want to be praised. They called his bluff though.
