According to the Fresno Bee, 80 City of Fresno employees make more than $130,000 a year. Five employees make more than $200,000 a year. Are these government bureaucrats willing to make the same sacrifice the mayor wanted to impose on blue-collar city sanitation workers? The proposal in this month’s “From the Editor” column asks them to do just that.
