Should we give ¡A Mexican! a raise?

It seems that there were a few things going on at the OC Weekly before us LIBERALS took over that I was not aware of.

It looks like the OC Weekly was paying their resident ¡Mexican! Gustavo Arellano, like a Mexican, or maybe less than a WalMart greeter. At any rate, a commenter (Drew C) pointed out that we’re not paying him enough to pick strawberries, much less write the stuff he does.

So I thought we would do the liberal thing and take a poll. Please comment yes or no to giving our resident Mexican a raise. If enough people say yes, then we’ll let him have it. So it is now up to you…

    You should give him a big raise, because he need money and many Mexicas are abused over the globe. (by uunder paymen)

    I say we pay him in oranges.

    As an investor and member of the newly reconstituted Editorial Board, Chris, you already know my vote is yes — with one consideration. The Village Voice must run the column on the Tuesday after The Liberal OCWeekly’s Thursday edition, not before. He’s our Mexican. We get first dibbs.

    For the record, I vote YES. Pay him more than a WalMart greeter.

    As a minority owner of The Liberal OC Weekly, I vote YES.

    Gustavo will be promoted to the corner office as soon as R. Scott Moxley clears out his desk 😉

    He is one of the OC’s greatest natural resources and he deserves as much as the highest paid lib(ertarian) at the Register.

    Just Gustavo. He’s Special! And a mexican.
