    Yeahs ago, when my kids were ltitle, I got 3 jury summons in 2 months. My youngest, being autistic, I had to stay home and they let me out. That was more than 20 years ago and I just got another jury summons. I plan on serving this time, only I'm shocked that they pay $10 a day. Minimum wage in this state is $9.04, how can they get away with $10.00 a day? Heck, that barely covers gas these days. I remember when I was a teen, one of my aunts friends served on many juries, it was the way she made her living. forget doing that today.

    While I have no problem serving as I'm currently unemployed, I can't imagine any employed person taking time off for $10 a day, not when they need the money to pay their bills. I can't see how they can get a decent jury on $10 a day. No wonder OJ got off.

    I've got no problems doing it, I only question the $10 a day which hasn't changed in what, 40 years?
