Only in Commiefornia......................
No price of labor is too high if you are a supporter of public unions. Here is a case in point: In Hermosa Beach California, Police Chief Steve Johnson and Councilman Howard Fishman defended $100,000 meter maid positions on the grounds “When you outsource, you take away union jobs.”

You're kidding, those guys probably bring in 10 times that in tickets each month.

And you don't think someone drawing a smaller salary will write out the same number of tickets? :dunno:

Note that meter maid positions do not require much more than the ability to drive a standard transmission car and have a high school diploma.

There's the problem - how many people today can drive a standard? You have to pay top dollar for rare skills.

Good. Nice to see a mere meter maid has managed to figure out how to take advantage of the system in exactly the same way as the wallstreet wingtipper have taken advantage of the system... or military retirees, etc.

Of course the real problem is that the meter maid is making more than minimum wage doing a minimum wage job because she is a LEO. Can't see any reason why that sort of job could not be filled by a part-time employee. A retired senior citizen in a golf cart would do the job just fine.

Having a hard time making a connection between a wallstreet private corporate employee, a military retiree, and a meter maid. I'll be darned if I see it.

Bang your head against a brick wall for an hour, then you two will be on the same page.

Why, when talking to liberals, do I have to constantly compensate for the fact that I wasn't a slippery child and didn't get dropped, and my parents didn't let me eat paint chips?

"Having a hard time..." Amazing how folks can scream, holler and whine about this sort of peanut stuff while turning a blind eye to and ignoring the rape of America by wall street wingtippers.

Just to make sure we are on the same page here, would you please define what you mean by "wall street wingtippers"?

that is a slang term I am unfamiliar with.

If you are referring to someone who works for a company or business in the private sector, then don't bother. There really isn't a comparison to someone making $100,000 of TAXPAYER'S money for writing parking tickets.

You can drive a blind man right up to a mountain, and he'll never see it. He can't. He's blind. He'll never understand. Because he is blind.

Does it make a difference if you are getting raped by a wingtipper or a meter man/maid - there is still a rape going on. :whistling::shocked:

No you are the one that is so blind you can't see a difference, and yet you call me blind because I can.

You are just a sad envious hater who doesn't like anyone better off than yourself. they are all the same to you. You are a class warfare pawn.

There is a difference between business profits and union sponsored extortion of taxpayer money.

The metermaid will only affect the city she works for. The wallsteet wingtippers are one in the same with demokrats... domestic terrorists.

You need a new leader. When the blind depend on the blind to lead them, both wind up in the ditch.

That would be an almost cute quip, if it had anything to do with my post.

You are the one who can't differentiate between two seperate circumstances. Apparently all you can see is two cases of people that have more than you and that is where your sight fails.
