That's almost enough to get a tooth fixed.

Enough to buy a lot of crawfish.

That will cover 1/8 of their deductible. Assuming they have really good insurance.

Walgreens was generous enough to give a one-time payment of $300 before cutting our hours.

How does one get a crust of brown bread when it comes in a can?

It's better than you think and it's better than it has any right to be.

Not really.

And the Louisiana governor is a Democrat which is why they are gonna get it.

Yeah, sure.

I'll believe it when they have the money.

How does one qualify for these "Freedom Loaves"?

These are the people who kept working, while some of the most egregious virtue signalers stayed home with pay and had meal/groceries delivered while they tripped over hoarded toilet paper.

I was thinking that it was probably $250 per month instead of per week as it should be and then I read the article.

New Orleans garbage collectors are the ones who are really being screwed.  Pay, benefits, and decent equipment are all lacking.

Hey. With a 65 hour week, and the last 3 months, that's a $2.77 a day. That's enough for 2 large sodas at McDonalds every day for the next 3 months. We appreciate you.

For many of you, I realize 250 dollars is an unprecedented windfall, so don't go spending it all on... I don't know. Caroline, what do these people buy? Tattered hats? Beard dirt?

Wow! And after they take taxes out they'll get about $160!

(Gosh. It's too bad they aren't rich or corporations so they could keep the whole $250.)
