Jury Duty Costs

A recent KC Star article titled Crime doesn’t pay — nor does jury duty makes the point that people sometimes sacrifice financially when they are enlisted to serve on a jury. In Kansas City (Missouri) a juror receives $6 a day plus mileage (at 7 cents a mile).. in Kansas juror compensation is $10 a day.

In light of the salaries that we pay all government employees I find this to be a bit ludicrous. These rates were established decades ago.. it is about time a bit of reality is applied to them.

What do you think? Any stories to share?

  1. $6.00 a day jurors and you get $6.00 worth of justice.
