The Times seems to have difficulty understanding reality.
They suggest that employers should pay higher wages.
Okay fine. Go right ahead Times.
Please raise your wages so that you can attract experienced talent that knows how to, has the time to, and is allowed to write pieces that expose the waste fraud and abuse that permeate our local governments.
The Times might argue that they cannot do that because they are in an industry that is declining. They don’t have enough money they might say.
Would they understand this reality that many of us live with or would they somehow excuse themselves since they seem to think that they are so special?
Would the Times dare to publish their existing wage scale and then bravely increase it in an act of economic leadership that would help our community?
We deserve better
