Bush drops minimum wage for Katrina rebuilding

President Bush has "issued an executive order Thursday allowing federal contractors rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to pay below the prevailing wage."

I can only echo the sentiments of congressman George Miller of California,

"President Bush should immediately realize the colossal mistake he has made in signing this order and rescind it and ensure that America puts its people back to work in the wake of Katrina at wages that will get them and their families back on their feet"
