Gotta love this place

Think my job is safe from budget cuts? Think not!

NYC Mayor Bloomberg is proposing budget cuts that'll eliminate 30 EMT shifts and leave dozens of us without work. That's only a small piece however, of the proposed effort to bounce back NYC's tremendous budget deficit. He also wishes to cut the number of firefighters and police men responding to our cries for help.

Why not throw in the ever so stable career of public school teaching? We could possibly see 15,000 of them applying for unemployment along with us... Until they realize they've exhausted that benefit too. With that in mind apparently, he's decided it'll be necessary to increase the cities revenue, so we'll be seeing higher sales taxes now too.
