I got some real information
Today about “the job”. Here’s the good news.
I will be labor compliance advisor for
Arkansas – appointed by the National Emergency
Council – will be on the staff of the state
Director (J.J. Harrison) but primarily responsible
to the Washington authorities. The salary?
Honey are you interested in the salary?
The “base pay” will $4500.00. With the 15 percent
cut it will be $3825.00 or 381.75 per month.
Can we use it or can we use it?
That’s the equivalent of $7500.00 up here –
no doubt about it. We can live like
real folks now. Pay debts – and save
some. Ain’t it wonderful I think so
I hope you do. I had a fine talk
with Dr. Altmeyer who is completing
the organization’s today. He was real
happy he said that he “has me” for Ark.
Genl Hugh Johnson’s signature to the appointment
is all that remains to be done.
