Did anyone else here take a pay cut over the last 8 years?
Are government employees exempt from the swings of the economy?
I am not at all happy with this, but the outrage over someone making less money per year than they did 8 years ago is funny to me.
Its like this.
If State Employee's (SE). got raises from upswings they wouldn't gnash teeth quite so badly when they take cuts from downswings. Fact is SE salaries are almost unlivable levels of stagnant and all the big money salaries you hear about are from political pals and yes men.
If you kids could have seen some of the waste i have seen in the past you would likely riot in the streets.
Pat started losing cred with SE's the day he hired his group of advisors and gave them all raises.
