Today’s news:

Give city workers increases in pay

This really takes the cake. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said teachers must only accept a 2 percent pay raise due to budgetary problems. This from a man who gave pay raises to his staff.

What chutzpah! Teachers and all city employees must raise their voices in solidarity and angrily tell the mayor we are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore! All city workers deserve a lot more than a 2 percent raise.

That is not even enough to pay for a half-year’s worth of food or rent.
