    clarification; it would be great to have hardhatted workers in and outside of the town hall protesting McSame, who is an enemy of the working class and anti-union as hell.  But to be clear, this company is not accused of paying under the federal minimum wage (which is a pathetic $5.85 per hour, and $7.15 in PA), but under the "prevailing" wage (measured closer to some market calculation), which is (rightly) substantially higher.  The case hasn't been decided on its merits yet, though it looks like the company knows it screwed up, since according to the linked article, it offered to pay the amounts due in full.  

    McSame really needs to get busted for this; if he is, and he gets the kind of media treatment he deserves, he should lose some of those vaunted "Reagan Democrats" we keep hearing about, who don't like to have their pockets picked.
