hang in there Nick you are doing awesome!
Okay hold up people! The original increase discussed was quite a big difference from what is being proposed now, since the employees have spoke up. Also, the County Employees have not seen a raise in almost 5 years. The insurance and retirement that comes out of their checks keeps going up. A lot of the County employees who take care of your public restrooms, county roads, storm drainage issues, dead animal removal, county parks and Mosiquito Spraying are barely making over min wage. They can't afford for more and more to be taken from their small checks. They have family and pay taxes just like ya'll. I think you need to get the facts before spouting off.
If you were the one(s) sitting in the underpaid chair would you feel the same? I don't think so. These people sitting in these chairs is who keeps the balls rolling in the city/county. They work a lot harder than given credit for and barely have money for living. I am sure they haven't seen pay raises in 4 or 5 years.
