Con Ed, Welfare Recipients, Police Salary
July 2nd, 2007

Con Eds answer to its occasional outages is to upgrade the system. Thats fine, said the The New York Times. But state regulators must make sure that consumers dont get mugged in the process

Get a job! is one simple message, loud and clear to welfare recipients from the New York Post editorial. Last month Albany passed a bill that requires officials to push recipients toward sustainable jobs – ones that pay almost twice the poverty level. The problem is too few welfare recipients have the skills needed to get good jobs – many never having held any job, The Post said.

It all comes back to that lousy salary, said the Daily News editorial, which argues low salaries, not the hazards, have cut police recruitment to dangerous levels. The next academy class is expected to number a paltry 800 – even though the city budgeted for 2,800.
