Not only does he undermine the state workers with the exploitation of the temporary worker, he now boldly disrespect the state worker by giving his staff raises in the wake of furloughs for the state workers.
Who caused the states fiscal troubles? It certainly was not the state workers, so why must all problems be solved off of the backs of the workers? When is Gov. Paterson, the assembly and senate going to give up a days pay each week? They certainly can afford it. When is the Governor going to increase the taxes on the corporations in-order to increase revenue? What he is telling the worker, the person who keeps things going, is that only the lifestyle of the rich is important. The lifestyle of the worker is insignificant.
When does the nys public get a chance to sit down and negotiate with the Governor like the CEO’s of the corporations do.
We have got to stand up for each other and take our democracy back. Those who have the least are paying the most! The decisions for the many are being made by the wealthiest few. This is neoliberalism operating as a political system.
Well I say to Gov. Paterson, when they get finished using you as their pawn[coding frame] will you still be a part of the inner circle? I doubt it.
This profit over people syndrome has taken hold and we must let them know that democracy will prevail.
WAKE UP EVERYBODY- IT’S TIME FOR THINKING AHEAD!
