Tag: New Jersey Governor
There appears to be confusion regarding my previous post about New Jersey's Governor Chris Christie.
The paragraph about my current employment situation was not meant to be a complaint. I was only using it to show the discrepancy between the looting world of Government and the real, productive world.
I love my job and the company I work for. (FYI: The company is not based in Michigan.)
When I leave a company and go to a new one, I make sure I'm happy with the compensation package I negotiate at the beginning. I operate on the assumption that I am not entitled to any increase and will not receive any.

I know this is Right Michigan but the speech New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie gave to a gathering of mayors is applicable to Michigan and all insolvent states.
The video is long but well worth the time.
What really hit home was his pledge to cut back the increases given to government employees. I've been with my company for three years. The company is fabulously successful yet nobody has received a salary increase or promotion during this time. If employees that produce and add to the economy have to "sacrifice" increases, why should people that produce nothing get => 4% increases when their companies, the state and municipalities, are bankrupt?
God help us!
