Regarding your article on Ventura County cities fearing state funding cuts, June 17, whenever business is bad, business must resort to pay cuts, layoffs, etc. in order to survive. This is especially true with small businesses where the owners take no money out in order to keep operating. I know. I've done it for the past year.
Where do government employees get off thinking they are immune to the above economic realities?
There is a price to pay for free enterprise and it's not always positive.
