Pay Raises for Health Dept. Workers in Recession?

As state and local governments battle budget deficits and spending cuts; as unemployment continues to soar; Joe Schoenmann of the Las Vegas Sun reported yesterday that “The Southern Nevada Health District board last week approved a $30,000 raise for its chief health officer and 5.5 percent raises for most of its 526 employees – and at the same meeting voted to increase some of the fees it charges the public for vaccinations and other services.”

Are these people retarded?
