I was glad to hear that city and county employees will receive their raises next year. If they hadn’t, I would have been curious as to why not, as I am paying not one, but two payroll taxes, to the city and county. I would have wondered where all the money was going.
I have not had a raise in three years, and I have friends who haven’t (had one) in four or more. It’s a tough economy, you know, and I certainly appreciate the city and county employees who serve us so well. So all those who are blessed to get pay raises should be thankful.
