"You could take one janitor and hire 30-some kids to work in the school for the price of one janitor," Gingrich said. "And those 30 kids would be a lot less likely to drop out. They would actually have money in their pocket."
Later in Sean Hannity's spin room, Gingrich expanded on his idea:
HANNITY: What does it mean if you suggest that it's good for people to get a job -- and you talked about how much janitors in New York make. They do make a pretty astronomical amount of money. What is it --
GINGRICH: You can hire 30 young people part-time for one janitor. So you take a school that has four or five janitors, keep the top two, take the bottom three. You now have 90 kids who have an incentive to not drop out. They have to go to -- they have to go to school to get -- have their little job. Their little job gives them cash. They have pride in what they're doing. They begin to have pride in the school. They'll learn the work ethic. It's just a win-win strategy.
Sounds like a great idea, unless you are one of the 3 janitors.
Presumably these janitors who are getting paid these astronomical salaries are adults and heads of households.
My questions to the group is....What happens to the 3 janitors and their families?
Are there other equally salaried jobs they could find to keep their lives intact?
Or should they go on Unemployment and through Professor Gingrich Re-Education/Job Training camps?
(Maybe he's really not the smartest guy on the stage.)
