Can't blame the dummy for wanting work. His wife has a new job recently slowing traffic ~ she used to be a sex doll. It's the recession.

I must be warped but I think it's funny,if you really want to get their attention put two unclothed mannequins in a sexual position up on the billboard catwalk.

Has anyone else noticed that millions of Americans have lost jobs, cars, and homes during the past four years? And many have committed suicide for lack of hope, lack of jobs and lack of money?

Right now, college grads have a 50 percent unemployment rate if they graduated when Obama was in office. So this billboard sign, as crazy as it looks, is a sign of the desperation somebody feels in Vegas. I sympathize with them and I would not prosecute them for expressing their frustrations with the lack of jobs in America.

The sign is a protest against Wall Street executives getting millions of dollars in bonuses after firing millions of US workers during the past four years. People are dying and the idiots in charge are upset when one person makes a protest in the Spirit of 1776.
