Serving Jury duty must pay more than $15 a day. This isn’t 1950 anymore.
This petition had 7 supporters
Listen, my stepmother who runs the local food bank was summoned to jury, only to be on jury for 5 weeks, making no more than $15 a day. All while the judges and lawyers are making 6 figures a year. Do you really think $15 a day is fair? In a 8 hour day, if they paid you $15, that would be a whole .53 cents an hour. This is absolutely disgusting, I want to petition for minimum wage or the average wage you make daily at your normal 9-5 job. This is only fair. Nobody can support their family if called into a long extended trial making $15.00 a day. This isn’t 1950 anymore. Please help change this law set by cavemen of the past. Again, most local jurors make $15 a day, and .34 cents a mile. This is by far the most backwards balance of funds I’ve ever seen.
