Gingrich: Let them clean toilets!

In an epic tumble from the top spot after rivals Cain & Perry fatally fumbled their presidential runs,
Gingrich flushes his chances altogether in one fell swoop.

Speaking at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, the former House Speaker said his system would be an improvement on current child labor laws, which he called "truly stupid."

"It is tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children in child laws which are truly stupid," Gingrich said. "Saying to people you shouldn't go to work before you're 14, 16. You're totally poor, you're in a school that's failing with a teacher that's failing."
Gingrich then proposed a system he said would help those students rise from poverty.
"I tried for years to have a very simple model. These schools should get rid of unionized janitors, have one master janitor, pay local students to take care of the school. The kids would actually do work; they'd have cash; they'd have pride in the schools. They'd begin the process of rising."

WOW!!! Promoting Child labor AND Union busting all in one announcement. Never mind that he just said the poorest kids should  clean their own schools for pocket money & pride.  Notice he's not suggesting the upper crust have their kids clean their own schools. 
Never mind that janitorial services require the use of toxic chemicals, and special training about health & safety, including knowledge about OSHA safety requirements,  including bloodborne pathogens, and most large scale janitorial staff are also required to get immunizations for hepatitis. 

So if one master janitor is out sick or busy, will they be calling student janitors out of class to clean up overflowing toilets?
Gingrich wants to take union jobs away, &  take us back to the days of child labor.
Let's hope the proud junior janitors, and newly unemployed union janitors take solace in the fact that Gingrich had a $500,000 to $1 million line of credit at Tiffany's, that "now has zero balance, and it has been closed.”
