Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross has apologized for suggesting unpaid Federal employees shouldn’t need to depend on food banks.
“What is it you kids say? My bad.”
He says his brief time in the spotlight of social media has opened his eyes to the struggle many Americans have trying to make ends meet. To make up for his prior insensitivity he wanted to share some tips on how they could make extra money to get through the hard times.
“I notice everywhere is have a difficult time finding elevator operators these days. That would be a great place to start, and you get to wear a neat uniform.”
Ross also suggests finding work as milkmen, switchboard operators, and clockwinders.
“In my youth fixing broken wagon wheels was where the easy money was, but I guess that’s impractical advice now.”
