Being bumped from an airplane is a raw deal. Sitting on a jury is way worse. What could be done to change that? Fair pay.

    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.
