"A man outside Ewing Irrigation, a landscaping supply store downtown, says county employees were overpaid and the politicians weren't doing their jobs. It's a very conservative county, he explains, and then he throws the blame.
"Most of the decisions in the county are made in Eugene and Portland," he spits out. "Taking the dams out, killing logging."
It's not so much that county employees are 'overpaid,' in as much as their whole bebefit package is. The public can't afford county employee health care costs and pension plans, plain and simple.
And, as long as we're looking at what's wrong...
What happened to common sense, in prioritizing county lay-offs? Public Safety should be the LAST thing cut! Pink Slips to 50% of the county senior managers and 100% of the middle managers!
