Brotha Hustle: "Ghetto Science Community: The Hustle family's Summer Jobs Initiative is ready to put people to work, thanks to some surplus funds from the Ghetto Science Community Stimulus Grant, or GSCSG. Special thanks go out to Congressman Smokey ‘Robinson' McBride for pulling strings to make the summer jobs initiative happen. The Ghetto Science Community admires politicians like Rep. Smokey because he a true hustler for his constituents, aka the people. This summer the Hustle family will transform teenagers, college students, senior citizens and broke folk sitting on the front porch into wage earners. Funding will cover minimum wage jobs in information technology, office administration, etc.

"Aunt Tee Tee needs computer literate folk to help her update and manage the Ghetto Science Community's database, Facebook account and ‘Ghetto Tube' server system. As community safety becomes a priority this summer, the Inspector ‘Beat Down' Lipscomb Security Team needs a few good men and women to patrol vulnerable and volatile areas of the community. Pork-N-Piggly Supermarket needs part-time baggers and senior greeters for the summer barbeque season. The Clubb Chicken Wing Multipurpose Complex has job openings for maintenance workers, bus boys, waiters, waitresses and bartenders. And I'm ready to employ 10 associate vendors to sell ice-cold Juicy Juice, sandwiches and bo-dega snacks with the ‘Brotha Hustle Juicy Juice on Ice Refreshment and Snack Time Wagon.'

"The Hustle family's Summer Jobs Initiative is the Ghetto Science Community's version of FDR's New Deal (aka the Works Progress Administration). Let's go to work!"
