I was all set to try and get off jury duty. Turned out they didn't want me and sent me home. I still think if they'd pay something they'd get more cooperation. Problem is some employers pay you and some don't. And self employed folks like plumbers and truck drivers really get hosed. Minimum wage in Arizona is $10 an hour. They should pay something comparable instead of forced volunteerism. People would be more willing to serve. That's how I see it.
