If as was mentioned by both Mayor and Council President; that Parsippany Town Employees are second to none, then this must not be true in a wholesome sense. If there is dead weight then and jobs somehow need to be eliminated from the workforce through justification; why exactly these 13 jobs, because they are easy targets because they are presently not filled?
In a Town like Parsippany Money Magazine’s ideal place to live; how can an average “need” to raise taxes a mere $4.38 on the Municipal level jeopardize anyone’s financial lot? We must say it will make us $4.38 less rich, not poorer. When considering the trumped up senior citizen cry at this level of $4.38 to maintain the Towns Actual Needs and Benefits, this also does not stand scrutiny, as a Tax Free is available for retired seniors up to a little over $80,000 annual income, in addition Veterans or senior $250 deductions.
We are acting out on the wrong level at the wrong station of the tax cage. Especially for those of the 21st Century Republicans, who practice tax evasion leave the common coiffeurs to be filled by working class people in wage and sales taxes. If we add in medical, dental, rents, mortgages, food, travel its quite obvious of the loss of the common. Corporate Elites write such expenses off.
Wall Street Bonuses totaled $27.5 billion in 2018. 3 times the combined annual earning of all American Workers employed full-time at Federal minimum wage.
The contention of grievance cannot be sincerely or seriously being directed here for $4.38 average to keep 13 more jobs. Perhaps we can ask for more diligence in the work tasks performed; but not simply elimination of the 13 because some political assumption demands cuts; for the sake of cuts. If those whom vote to cut the jobs, then need cut their own salaries .
Real, revenue-raising corporate tax reform is what most Americans want and what our country needs. Our elected officials should stop kowtowing to the loophole lobbyists and stand up for the majority of Americans.
