How can the five Orange County supervisors award themselves a second raise this year, up to almost $66,000, not to mention the benefits, and then give 22 Orange County department heads across-the-board raises?
Meanwhile, up to 10,000 men, women and children, according to reports, wander Orange County streets, parks and abandoned buildings, trying to find someplace to lay their hungry, weary, frightened bodies. They are Orange County's homeless. Almost half of them are children, all out of school because you have to have an address to get an education in Orange County.
The lucky homeless squeeze into a motel where each day is an endurance contest to see whether they're going to get evicted.
If you're on minimum wage, your take-home pay roughly will be $512 a month. A minimum rent would be $425, if you can find one. Want to try to live on what's left? And contrast that with what the supervisors and their 22 department heads take-home each month.
