They fire people without agonizing about their lives,they cut wages without shame.

At my weekday job where I work with people who have mental illnesses the agency once made the announcement that they were experiencing a "budget crisis". Over the next few months they laid off dozens of direct care workers, leaving the remaining staff overworked and clients underserved. No management or administrative staff were laid off.

At my weekend job where I work with people who have developmental disabilities they also claimed a "budget crisis" and came up with a "new salary scale". Their new salary scale reduced the pay of most employees by about $1.00 per hour. Once again, the administrative/management staff were not affected by the "new salary scale".
