    This is so very important. Our jury system depends on people serving and it‘s not fair to them to lose their livelihoods in order to do their civic duty. I was recently involved in a jury selection for a case that was expected to take more than 2 months. So many people were unable to afford the time off because they wouldn‘t be paid. And that affects the representativeness of the jury as well. I remember one long case where a juror almost lost his house. We need to do something about this. Thanks for writing about this important subject Roy.
