Without a GUARANTEE of no layoffs; The unions SHOULD NOT agree to any concessions. Last time the fire union gave concessions and the city still laid off. Tell them to take their 4% and shove it...

so now the OBAMA money will come in be given to the city so they can rehire them. When all of us out of work non-government workers sit at home and don't have jobs.
OBAMA how about creating some jobs in cleveland so we can pay taxes and put them back to work.. but NO you'll get them working first. Stupid democrats.

Instead of laying off Clevelands workers we should lay off city workers in Strongsville and cut their services.

Mayor Jackson can save the money by laying off the fat cats in City Hall that make six figure salaries and do nothing. But again the citizens suffer as the low salaried workers that provide the most important bloodline to their needs are sacraficial lambs to the political regime.

So nice of the city to put another academy class through. The 127th Academy Class goes through six months of being treated and paid like garbage,(10.50 an hour, btw) most of us had to get into debt because we wanted to be police officers, and this is our thanks. We've received two full paychecks since we've graduated, and now we get to file for unemployment. If the city couldn't afford us then they shouldn't have hired us. Funny how these money problems surface AFTER the election.

Oh, and to ROCKITALLNIGHTLO NG, why don't YOU do our job for a day? We risk our lives every night to protect ungrateful @$#holes like you.

Trim the fat from Building and Housing Dept. Go down there sometime and watch your tax dollars being wasted. Complete joke on the 4th and 5th floors of City Hall.

why does this happen to the most important people we need(police,fire,EMS)on the street??!! Cleveland is a f*&kin joke and so is its economy and its govt. You need to lay off all the assclowns that sit in a govt office and do nothing all day making 20-30 dollars/hr. Or how about the other assclowns that sit in the utilities building or sit in their work truck and sleep instead of working!! This city is embarrassing!! Leave the Civil Servants out of the layoff issues!! GOOD LUCK TO THE PLOICE FIRE and EMS!! We need you!

You are right they are not special. They are just ordinary people that took low paying- high risk jobs to protect the sorry butts of ungrateful people like you.
