(We thought this was a joke when we first heard it, but no, Gingrich really thinks child labor laws are “truly stupid.” – promoted by Colorado Pols)
With a statement combining arrogance and sheer impractical foolishness in the manner we’ve come to know and expect from him, Newt Gingrich has now declared that child labor laws are “truly stupid.”
Gingrich wants to repeal child labor laws, have schools fire almost all their janitors, keep just one “master janitor” and have that janitor supervise a fleet of newly-eligible 9 to 11 year olds hired for below-minimum wages to clean up their schools.
And no, I am not making this up. This is another actual, real, brilliant Newt Gingrich Idea:
I hope someone asks Super Genius Gingrich a follow-up question about what will happen to all those school janitors thrown out of work.
But what I really love is the way Gingrich sneeringly puts down current child labor laws as not only needing reform but “truly stupid.” The guy’s arrogance knows no bounds.
Stee-RIKE! You’re out, Newt. You can join Bachmann, Perry, and Cain in the dugout. Next batter: Rick Santorum!
