For Friday and Friday only, BP had 400 workers brought in to help with the oil spill at the rate of $12 an hour, according to Jefferson Parish officials. (h/t Think Progress)

Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts didn’t buy into the cleanup effort.

“They must think we’re all fools,” he said.

Roberts called BP’s efforts “shameful.”

“The level of cleanup and cooperation from BP in the last week in no way compares to the effort shown on the island today,” Roberts said. “This is a total shame that a mockery has been made of this visit by the executives of BP.”

A BP contractor called the confluence of the extra workers and the visit by the president “a coincidence.”
