I live in Wisconsin. Governer Scott Walker is trying to pass a budget cut that basically cuts many of our state employees income by 15-18%. Of course some of those that would be affected are upset. Why? With the recession, some government funded programs have used up way more funds than they should have to help those "in need". People are getting their wages cut so that 6000 people won't need to be fired in July. Now, leave it to the liberals. People are talking about violent protests, and the governer has the national guard on stand bye. Here is what I feel. I can't say this out loud, or on facebook, because I think some people I know IRL would try to stab me with a shiv or a ballpoint pen. Quit your ****ing whining. Does it suck to get a pay cut? Yes. Welcome to the recession. People in the private sector have been getting pay cuts and benefits slashed for the past two years. This is the way businesses are ran. Budgets get ****ed up? You're loosing money instead of breaking even or making money? Guess what - **** needs to change. I work in the private sector. My income was cut by 25% when they removed any possibility for my commission back in 2009. Then my health insurance went from 50% covered to 25% covered. Then I had to start paying for underground parking at my office building. Then they stopped matching 401k contributions. Was I upset? Yes. Did I threaten to go on strike or whine NONSTOP to everyone that will listen? No. If you don't like your compensation you can do one of two things: 1.) Get over it and live with it. 2.) Quit, find a new job. No one is forcing you to work for the state. In closing, PLEASE, shut the **** up.
