CINCINNATI CITY COUNCIL has a proposal before it to cut the salaries of council members — the city having a brazilian-dollar deficit and being asking of the police and fire departments to take cuts, furloughs, and so-forth.
One of the opposing councilmen, on the radio Wednesday, averred that he works twelve hours a day, six days a week and he by-gawd earns his salary, and he’ll be damned if he’s going to take a cut.
Twelve. Hours. A. Day. As a CITY legislator. Six. Days. A. Week.
What exactly are you up to, councilman, in all that time? And why should We the Little People consider it worth a dime, let alone your inflated salary? For a job that’s supposed to be part-time?
