Re: Your Raises
Dt: October 17, 2008
Dear Los Angeles City Councilmembers,
In case you forgot, you have automatic raises that kick in soon.
With the City facing such a massive financial crisis, where basic city services will be forced to be cut back, and fear that the city won't be able to pay it's bills or employee payroll, and the fact that you are going to your constituents for approval of new taxes and bonds to help pay for your big mess --
I don't see how you can sit there and take an automatic pay hike. You're already making $171,000 (or whatever). In Japan, based on Deming's 14 Points, when times are tough, the FIRST people who take pay cuts are those at the top. The workers are the LAST to take a cut. YOU HAVE IT ASS-BACKWARDS. Because everything you do is ass-backwards, you selfish/greedy dummies.
ZUMA DOGG'S Z.A.P IS ASKING LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCILMEMBERS TO DO THE RIGHT THING, AND PASS AN ORDINANCE THAT WOULD SUSPEND THESE AUTOMATIC RAISES.
Now THERE is an issue worth flooding public comment with activists for.
And remember COUNCILMEMBERS...you get a million dollars worth of benefits anyway for all the region-recking you get away with, each meeting. REJECT AND RENOUNCE THE RAISES!
