Contractor Comes Home
More than 130 men from North Central Florida found themselves stranded in Texas with no way home. They were contracted to help in the relief effort for victims of Hurricane Ike and ended up being victims themselves.
For Bill Head, one of the contracted workers, the ride to Galveston was easy but getting home was the hard part. Once he arrived with the other men, they were told residents did not want the help from out of town workers and they had to leave. Like Head, most of the men quit their jobs before leaving. It was suppose to be a two year job that was going to pay them one thousand dollars a week.
Now stranded and looking for odd jobs to pay for their way home. The men started to turn their anger towards each other and the boss. Head's family was able to pull together and get some money to him to take the Greyhound bus home. Bill Head says," His prayers and thoughts are with the other men who are still there trying to get home to their families".
