Remember for years ‘they’ told us “We need a raise, it is hard to attract good candidates and Govt Employees if we don’t pay them VERY well and give some good benefits”.
I am sure glad WE agreed that the caliber of candidates was ‘bad’ without MORE MONEY, we may have gotten stuck with some real losers in high positions.
One needs a license to do most anything in this country, even armed robbers have apprenticeships BUT all it requires to be a pol is fooling (buying) enough people into voting for you.
“Cheer up. Things could be worse”.
So, I cheered up and sure enough, they got worse.
Heh Heh. They’ll probably hear that old saying at work after the Christmas break. Thanks for the chuckle.
