Reader: Medical marijuana sign spinners are losing jobs in terrible market
Our post about alternative jobs for medical marijuana sign spinners, whose positions are almost certainly going to be nixed by a Monday vote of the Denver City Council, inspired one reader to make a serious point about a gig that didn't find much support even among those opposing the council's proposed MMJ outdoor ad ban. Here it is.
It is absolutely hilarious that our city council is eliminating jobs in the middle of the worst hiring market in history. I am sure these sign spinners are all qualified to take good high tech clean energy jobs. Yes, not having to drive by a sign spinner is worth eliminating dozens of jobs in the city. Nice work!
