Michigan's new governor of one whole day has indicated public sector workers will live with reduced benefits/wages, citing comparability with the private sector. State workers have already had wages suppressed since 2001. Snyder said it's more of a "problem" at the local and school levels. Oh goody. The governor also claims he won't raise taxes. Watch him pull a rabbit out of that hat. But the fabulously, privately well-to-do new governor still hasn't decided how much to pay himself. How about stepping into Michigan workers' shoes - those who are left working, Governor? Show us what real sacrifice is. How about no pay at all?
