This hilarious. They want to pay someone with an education and technical skills only $49,000, will they have uncollege uneducated turds like Al Abodon that's Greendale's Economic development director that makes over $125,000/yr including state benefits?????? Ridiculous!

No. They will get young college educated ones with little to no experience who will add this to their resume and move on when the grant is over.
What's your beef with Abdon besides his paycheck that you claim is $125,000?
