If I ever die and come back as Joe Hill, Cesar Chavez or some other labor activist, remind me never to try to recruit any U.S. bobsledders.
Apparently they've got no issue with not being paid what they're worth.
This after they got all in a snit because former hurdler Lolo Jones, now trying to make the Winter Olympics as a bobsledders, made a snide comment about how little bobsledders were getting paid for the work they do to bring honor to their country.
She was right. Her paycheck for seven months with the bobsled team: $741.41.
"I'm going to be a little late on my rent this month," she joked via a Vine video.
"It wasn't taken very well," gold medalist Steven Holcomb told USA Today of Jones' video. "People were really kind of insulted. You just made $741, more than most athletes in the sport. So what are you complaining about?"
Sorry, Steve. But from where I'm sitting, that's not the question.
The question, as one of the top figures in your sport, is why aren't you raising hell about it?
