This just in. The city council has approved a $397M budget for 2013-2014. Tacomans will pay HIGHER taxes via $20 car tab fees and will get less services especially in public works where the city is basically giving up on potholes.  But here's the kicker, some might say "the good news"....City workers are getting RAISES! Yippee, happy days are here again. Who said Tacoma wasn't a great city?

Meanwhile in Fredopia, all civil workers work multiple jobs to make ends meet. Minimum wage from the City of Fredopia plus minimum wage from FredoMart result in a happy workforce of people just low enough below the federal poverty level so that they qualify for federal benefits, which the Fredopian Plutocracy doesn't pay for.

Wage reductions are in order. Even a stupid person can see that.
