Extra, extra read all about it! Public and Private employees are seeking reasonable pay.


 


Poverty is the pits, if you don’t think so, try it sometime. It is a degrading experience. It can push a good person to the “over the brink” to do bad things to escape poverty. Don’t take my word for it just look around at the crime rate.


Businesses find it difficult, if not impossible to survive. They can’t keep up with the cost of living, the regulations and governmental controls required of them. Most small business can’t afford their own insurance policies let alone somebody else’s.


There are honest people who have to force themselves to get up out of bed everyday and attempt to solve their financial dilemma. They must go to work regardless of their health issues. This they do in order to get some money, usually not enough to adequately meet the cost of living. They have to work a second or a third job in order to meet their expenses.


My friend it’s past time we stop blaming public employees and those who are working trying to make a positive difference. We need the wisdom and knowledge long term employees bring to the table. One day you may wake up to no businesses or work force. Who then will pay taxes for those needing six digit salaries or those who are not working for any number of reasons?


Citizens, we are going to make it, if we take our actions responsibly. “We the people of the United States” can wake up and give God thanks for today! God gives us the power to get wealth-Dt. 8:18. Could we return to in “God we trust”? Perhaps even be decent to one another?


 


I know our city leaders and citizen want what’s best for our children. Let’s focus our energy on creating a viable job market with a skilled labor force. We can teach by example how to be civil toward one another even during the difficult financial times we are passing through. “ It take a village to bring up a child’ Hilary Clinton

It was done fairly well. See below with suggested changes.

 

Poverty is the pits, if you don’t think so, try it sometime. Poverty is an extremely degrading experience and can force good and honest people “over the brink” and cause them to engage in improper, immoral or illegal behavior to try escape poverty and merely survive and provide for their families. One does not have to take my word for it, the rising crime rate is proof that people have taken to illegal acts to try to survive in this failing economy.


Businesses find it difficult, if not impossible to survive. Businesses cannot keep up with the cost of living, the regulations, the taxes and governmental controls required of them. Most small business cannot afford their own insurance policies let alone somebody else’s. People have no money to spend to buy products from businesses and as a result, businesses are forced to let employees go and/or cut their hours to where they cannot make a living wage. This is a vicious cycle.


There are honest people who have to force themselves to get up out of bed everyday and attempt to solve their financial dilemma. They must go to work regardless of their health issues. These people go to work rain or shine, sick or healthy because they have no choice to survive and at the end of their work week they are lucky to barely take home enough money to pay their bills, much less put food on the table for their families. People have to work multiple jobs taking them away from raising their families and teaching their children as they have a moral obligation to do.


My friend it’s past time we stop blaming public employees and those who are working trying to make a positive difference. We need the wisdom and knowledge long term employees bring to the table. One day you may wake up to no businesses or work force. Who then will pay taxes for those needing six digit salaries or those who are not working for any number of reasons?

We can teach by example how to be civil toward one another even during the difficult financial times we are passing through. As Hillary Clinton says, it does "take a village" to bring up a child.
