TACOMA: City in no position to hand out raises

Re: “Council to vote on $4.9 million in pay hikes” (TNT, 5-7).

Tacoma is in no position to be handing out raises. I don’t care what the “going rate” is. If you can’t afford it, you can’t afford it.

Most people are excited when they get $1 an hour raise. I can’t believe anyone brings up raising wages when we have other issues to deal with. It is mind-boggling to me and most others.

I seriously doubt anyone will give up their already high-paying job with the benefits they recieve if they don’t get a raise. Just say no!
