The Slap in the Face

Fuck New Orleans. A plague on all their houses:
By a separate 5-0 vote, the council gave final approval to the 10 percent raise for all other city workers

Note to the council person who answered my email: your idea about leaving out employees who make over a certain amount is a good one, but it doesn't go far enough. I was also uncertain about my math, but when I rechecked it using Dr. Hatfield's estimated costs for the increase in fire fighters' salaries, the numbers worked out almost exactly the same (after separating out and combining the costs of the raises for police and fire fighters). They also don't seem to leave any room for more police officers.
