The oil spill in the Gulf is a horrible disaster that will take years to clean up. When speaking to my mother a few days ago she told me a story about my grandfather that I had never heard. When the great depression happened my family was affected like everyone else and my grandfather was out of work, prior to the depression he had a good job, when the depression hit that all changed. Then in 1938 the East Coast was hit by a horrific hurricane that caused total devastation to the coastal areas, then president Roosevelt came up with a plan, that plan allowed people to get government jobs that paid a fair wage for cleaning up after the storm, my grandfather would drive to Westhampton Beach in NY, a considerable drive from Mineola NY. But that job allowed him to get back on his feet, support his family and gain back his sense of pride. I had never known my grandfather was a part of that effort.
As I watched CNN this morning I thought to myself, wouldn't it be wonderful if we could take this current disaster and make something positive come from it. My thoughts were what if the federal government set up a work program with a fair wage for clean up effort, people from the region, as well as other parts of the country could apply for the job, BP could be handed the bill since they have committed to pay for the clean up. This would help our unemployment, the federal deficit because of the tax's on wages, and get a handle on the clean up and preservation of our precious wetlands.
