Should Officials Give Themselves Raises?
November 16th, 2006

Public officials should only get raises if the voters approve them, Barry Popik writes on Room Eight. (For some reason, he is reporting from Texas).

“Why can’t the employers (the people) ever have any say in the salaries of the people they employ (politicians)?” he writes. “(Supposedly employ–politicians work only for special interests, not the people they serve.)”

The Politicker, meanwhile, breaks down the reasons that the five city council members who voted against giving themselves pay raises yesterday did so.
