If you've ever wanted an NFL player to make you a sub sandwich and you live in Waco, Texas, you're in luck. That's because St. Louis Rams running back Terrance Ganaway has taken an offseason job at a Waco-area Jimmy John's.

As a rookie last season, Ganaway earned the NFL minimum of $390,000. He's not sure what he's making now, but it's not six figures.

"I'm probably guessing minimum wage -- $7.25 to $7.50 [an hour]," Ganaway said.

"I just wanted to stay fit, stay out of trouble and really just try to save money and not spend a lot of money," Ganaway said.

I thought about posting this in the Tinderbox in the minimum wage discussion. But I think this is a feel good story about someone willing to do hard work. I have a new favorite non-Panther player to root for.

    • From the ssa wiki part on its history: The Social Security law was very unpopular among many groups, especially farmers, who resented the additional taxes and feared they would never be made good. They lobbied hard for exclusion. Furthermore, the Treasury realized how difficult it would be to set up payroll deduction plans for farmers, for housekeepers who employed maids, and for nonprofit groups; therefore they were excluded. State employees were excluded for constitutional reasons (the federal government cannot tax state government). Federal employees were also excluded. Many textbooks, however, falsely indicate that the exclusions were the product of southern racial hostility toward blacks; there is no evidence of that in the record.[15] Other scholars have replicated and endorsed DeWitt's analysis, agreeing that the exclusions were made by policy experts on technical grounds and were not grounded on racial hostility. Rodems and Shaefer note in all other countries unemployment insurance programs "excluded domestic and agricultural workers when they were first implemented, a fact that the key New Deal policy makers were well aware of.   Interesting stuff.

    • this is an old story that anti-progressive media is pushing. all that happened is she applied for a loan for the college, for which they're required to submit a list of their donations so the office knows that they're able to pay back the loans. she submitted the list but included bequeathmets on the donor list instead of as a separate list, assuming they counted as donations. that's it. that's the entire story. it's a minor paperwork error that comes with a small fine.
