Put pub­lic em­ploy­ees on So­cial Se­cu­rity scale for raises

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - EDITORIAL PAGE -

I read in the North­west Arkansas Demo­crat-Gazette about the 2 per­cent raises for state of­fi­cials. We on So­cial Se­cu­rity re­ceived a 0.003 per­cent raise. Isn’t it time for county, state and fed­eral em­ploy­ees’ raises to be cal­cu­lated by So­cial Se­cu­rity cri­te­ria?

My house in­surance went up by al­most 10 per­cent this year. It seems trans­fer of wealth is a two-way street and not all go­ing from the top to the bot­tom, as some folks would have you be­lieve.
