Show Notes

I discovered my W2 from 1986 when I worked for the Church of Scientology International. My pay was $1202.94.  My hours worked were over 5,000 in that year!  

This would be $4.24 an hour.  

On paper, I was being paid by the C of S as a Sea Organization member having signed a billion-year contract when I was 15 years old.

My last year of public education was 1982.  I signed the contract in 1983.  

In this podcast, I give you a good idea of what life was like for me working for Scientology in 1986 - I was in big trouble for escaping the International Base in Hemet California and all I wanted to do was GET OUT and I believed I could do this following L. Ron Hubbard's policies. 

My goal was to go home to Ohio and try to fill in the 3 years of school and life-skills I was absolutely forbidden to learn.
