Employer ignores the same principle it invokes to dismiss employee's lawusit in order to justify out-sourcing its maintenance staff while eagerly anticipating receipt of Federal Tax Credits extended to assist development projects aimed at alleviating poverty even though it is simultaneously impoverishing its own employees. A perfecta, if not a trifecta, of savage inconsistency.

In the spirit of John Crawford’s analysis of how the city will save by ending collective bargaining I have done my own calculation of how it will affect me. I live in the city, pay property taxes of around $9,000 per year, pay CEDIT, COIT, DAMNIT and LOIT. My savings will be around $1.57. Now, my figures are just estimates and the real numbers, as with Dr. Crawford’s calculations, are nigh on impossible to quantify and, moreover, subject to that bugaboo of old, the law of unintended consequences.
