Bad Decision Making in Escondido

It’s not hard to understand why city workers in Escondido, CA are protesting a decision to give raises to top managers who are making quite a substantial amount of money in the first place–above $100,000 to be exact. Even though the city is cash strapped, the top managers are to receive pay hikes while the rest of the city employees are being told to suck it up.

Cases like this one, where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, are the reasons we have seen the Occupy movement gain so much traction, especially during times when so many of us have become victims of greed.

Update: It appears the city of Escondido isn’t the only city in San Diego county to approve a raise for its highly paid managers. Carlsbad has issued a 6% raise for its city manager.
