Re: Political raises should have more oversight. (Letters, Sept. 14)
Thank you so much for speaking up to us abused taxpayers. To those who have chosen to ignore this critical under-addressed subject, this should finally be an eye-opener.
That being said, now it’s time to end this exploitation, corruption, and greed, by the public servants. It’s time to take control of these overpaid, underworked employees. I’m sure there’s tons of money to be saved. ‘Overtime’ wouldn’t exist to these employees if they used 100 per cent of their eight hour days actually doing their jobs and not depending on the overtime offered at the end of each month. Come to think of it, perhaps it’s a good thing that these people aren’t putting in 100 per cent to each day. If they worked any harder, they probably wouldn’t need half the employees.
At the end of the day there is more than enough work in Victoria. I congratulate you on your letter, Elaine. After all, 99 per cent of us are aware that we can’t spend money that we don’t have. Plain and simple. If I can have a budget at home then shouldn’t the government?
It is a tight budget, but I take pride in not being in a “taxpayer’s pocket.”
