    To be precise, you quoted incorrectly. That statement is not conclusively known to have been made by Whitman, it was only claimed by the maid to have been made to the maid by Whitman. Mwahahaha, isn't the english language fun?

    The relavant piece from the story you linked:
    Diaz Santillan alleges that Whitman fired her in a phone call, saying: "From now on you don't know me, and I don't know you. You never have seen me and I have never seen you. Do you understand me?" With that, according to Diaz Santillan, Whitman hung up.

    Spoken like one more person who obviously doesn't live in expensive-ass California. What is generous about paying more or less what it would cost to have a 24 hour daycare that also cooks and cleans, your house?

    Irrelevant. answer the question. What is so generous about paying $23 an hour in California? You act like Whitman was some sort of patron saint. She's a billionaire who was paying what is essentially the bare minimum for somebody who cooks, cleans and takes care of your kids. End of story. Thanks for playing.

    my point is that there is nothing that the moonbats can use against Whitman validly on this issue

    That's a pretty generous wage for a menial laborer. Like I said, skilled technicians get paid that here in LA. And I am perfectly comfortable with paying them that salary.
