Give Raises Where Raises Are Due

Aug 31, 2009

The same day as the first protest, Mayor Bing “swore in” new appointees. This makes a total of 118 advisors. That’s 20 more advisors than the previous administration had!

To add insult to injury, he is paying some of his closest advisors salaries that are $10,000 more a year than those of the previous administration!

Bing’s press secretary said the salaries are necessary to attract and retain those with “expertise, experience and commitment” to help turn the city around.

City workers at this rally are the very talent that holds the city together. Raise their salaries!
