Obama "Putting America to Work" Visit Causes One Day Layoff For Hundreds (video)

President Obama went to Ohio Friday to celebrate his “10,000th stimulus project.” Hundreds of construction workers weren't celebrating. They had to take unpaid leave for the day.

FOX News reported:
President Obama went to the groundbreaking of a road project in Columbus, Ohio, Friday to show that his massive stimulus package is still churning out jobs — a “good news” story that was anything but for some construction workers who were trying to figure out how to make up for the payday they lost due to the president’s visit.

The workers were told not to report to their construction project at a nearby hospital Friday, because the Secret Service was shutting it down for security reasons. They also were told that they would not get paid for the forced day off.
