From Saturday’s Northwest Arkansas Times:
According to the mayor, Fayetteville has been increasing and raising the quality of services for residents while reducing the number of employees per capita.
Yup - reducing the number of employees while he goes gallivanting off at the drop of a hat to conferences around the country. One can’t help but recall the Solidarity that Comrade Dan showed with city employees earlier this year, after a Telecomm Board member made the silly “overpaid rednecks” remark.
I wonder if he’d get the same warm welcome at such a rally in the near future?
Speaking of Workers and Bad Jokes
Checking out the website for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, which has a special “Wal-Mart Coverage” selection on their site. They must be really proud of it; it’s listed twice.
No option for labor, coverage, of course. That is just so 19th Century . . .
