Re: “Libraries may shelve cheapest workers” (TNT, 10-29).
Anyone else see the hypocrisy of the mayor selecting “Nickel and Dimed,” by Barbara Ehrenreich, for the Tacoma Reads book, yet the city is getting rid of living-wage jobs to replace them with two part-time jobs?
Really? Cutting the lowest-paid employees (eight experienced individuals willing to work for $13 an hour), and leaving the bloated, highly paid upper and middle management intact?
Perhaps no one at the city actually uses the library. Or maybe they just haven’t read the book.
