"Earlier this year, Ohio state legislators passed a controversial bill limiting the collective bargaining rights of public employees unions. Included in the SB5 legislation is a provision to eliminate small automatic pay increases for state workers, including teachers, cops, and firefighters.

Ohio Republicans justified the move by arguing that state needed to shrink the size of government and save money in public employee contracts."

A Big Tax-Saver, Right??

Every time a government worker gets a raise the rest of us have to pay more in taxes. How fair's that. How about all government workers take a pay cut which then gives the rest of us get a pay raise. Sounds fair to me.

You should work for free.

That way the executive in your company can make more money.

They need it.

You don't.

Depends how hard the whips flaying, which makes me work faster, which gives me a raise.

In the center of it all
I gave myself a big raise this year. Quit my job, became a private consultant, and now I make 3X as much. No complaints here.

How about we refrain from blowing up infrastructure overseas and instead spend that $12 million per day on teachers, cops and firefighters?

Just a thought.....
