Romney is WRONG: 2012 Poor Black People Working for Slave Wages in Houston

According to a pool report from Romney’s Hamilton, Montana fundraiser  held on July 11, 2012, Romney told donors: “if they (Obamacare supporters) want more stuff from government tell them to go vote for the other guy – more free stuff.”  Since making that statement Romney’s campaign strategy includes FALSE ATTACK campaign ads approved by Romney that accuses President Obama of removing WORK from welfare reform laws. In a post titled ” Romney's Race-Baiting Welfare Ads” on Huffington Post writer Mark Hannah stated that he believes the strategy appears to be racially motivated. I agree with Hannah.
Romney is wrong for using the false race baiting welfare ads and in his implication that “Obamacare” supporters want more free stuff from the government. As evident from this blog and video made with pictures taken in August 2012, poor people living in Houston, Texas are reporting for work at a day labor office between 5:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. They work until 12:00 p.m. or until the assignment is completed for an average net pay of 17 or 18 dollars.
The poor not only want to work but ARE working in Houston, Texas for wages that COULD be classified as violating the requirements of minimum wages laws and/or “SLAVE LABOR.” Romney isn’t the SOLUTION for the American economy. I believe that Romney and anyone who would take advantage of poor people, like the ones featured in this video, are part of the PROBLEM.
