Man Who Walks 21 Miles A Day To Work

Recommended Posts



Two days ago, James Robertson couldn't afford a car to drive to work more than 20 miles away from his home — and today he can afford a small fleet.
After the Detroit Free Press told of Robertson's arduous 21-mile trek to and from his suburban factory job, the story inspired thousands of donations from across the nation. A day later, the soft-spoken machine operator got to meet the computer student from Wayne State University who launched an Internet crowd-funding site to gather more than $230,000 (£150,000) — a figure expected to continue to climb today.
The meeting and interviews were arranged by banker Blake Pollock, 47, of Rochester, who brought Robertson's story to the Free Press after seeing the intrepid walker trudge by in every sort of weather, mile after mile, through areas in Troy and Rochester Hills that no metro Detroit bus serves.

How has he got a full time machine operating job and can't afford a runner.. Some 400 dollar car.. These situations are always weird because it comes across like they've got amazing work ethic when moretime theyre brain dead zombies who could make their life a lot easier with a bit of common sense

Edit: didn't see the other thread
