UPDATE December 9: Like the "Tell Newt He's Fired" Facebook page.
UPDATE December 5: Newt has teamed up with The Donald (as in Trump) to set up an apprentice program for some of these “really poor children” with “nobody around them who works.” Guess The Newt and The Donald never met the working poor.
UPDATE December 1: On November 18, Newt Gingrich called child labor laws “stupid” and said he wants to fire union workers and hire kids to clean schools. Now he's gone further, saying his plan is the only way to teach poor children how to earn money in ways that are not “illegal.”
“Really poor children, in really poor neighborhoods, have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works so they have no habit of showing up on Monday.”
Man, that Gingrich is a real big thinker. Poor kids don’t know anything about making money legally. And let's fire janitors and hire their kids instead. Let's have children as young as nine years old doing hard manual labor cleaning up after their more fortunate classmates. Why should they be playing or doing home work when they could be sanitizing toilets, handling hazardous cleaning chemicals, and scrubbing floors hunched over a mop for hours?
Please let Newt Gingrich know that his "ideas" are outrageous — tell him "You're Fired," and then let your family and others know exactly what kind of hogwash Gingrich is proposing.
