Funny how the same politicians who, just a year or two ago, cut public safety budgets and laid off emergency workers by the dozens are now calling for the hiring of emergency workers because of widespread crime spikes and poor response times, as well as the mass exodus of experienced employees these cuts spurred.
It’s almost as if no one warned them that this would happen.
After blaming public safety employees for all the budget woes for which they themselves, as decision-makers, were fully responsible, these dishonest, dishonorable, shit-for-brains politicians are suddenly fine with hiring these same street-level public safety employees, who have suddenly been absolved of “bankrupting” jurisdictions left and right with their supposed extravagant pay and benefits.
The best part, for me, has got to be that around here, for instance, we have more new co-workers than the poor souls who were laid off. Simple arithmetic says, why lay anyone off in the first place if you end up hiring more people afterward?
But what the fuck do I know – I’m just a stupid peon.
