Newt Gingrich Doubles Down, Says We Should Replace Janitors With Five Year Olds
Advertisements [?]
Source: Addicting Info

On Thursday during a forum with business leaders in South Carolina, Newt Gingrich doubled down on his call to end child labor laws. During the forum, Gingrich called for replacing New York City janitors with five year old children.

After explaining that working would give children an education in life, Gingrich told the audience all about his plan to replace hard working adults with kids that are easily manipulated.

So, if you took the cost of the New York City janitors, the most expensive janitors in New York are paid more than the highest paid teachers. The entry level janitor is paid twice as much as an entry level teacher. Its all because of the union. So, I say lets keep two janitors who are adults who are professional. They do all the heavy stuff and the dangerous stuff. And lets take all the other jobs and divide them up into part-time kids.
