You are willing to let everybody go without pay and use all their sick and leave time. While you go on getting pay and all the frills that you get. It's time for you to lose your pay, fancy medical and all the frills until you can get us back into the black on our debt. Start living like the rest of us. You say you know what we want and need. But you live so high above us, you really not know what we need or want.
