If 2 State workers in one household each receive a 5% pay cut, does the household get hit 5% or 10%.? (Assume for the purpose of this exercise that they each earn the same amount of money).
I say 5%, but others, in higher ranking, higher paid positions than I, say 10%. Each of us tries to explain the math; neither can see the other’s view.
These people think they are in danger of an actual 29% total income reduction if this additional 5% cut goes through on top of the 2 unpaid furlough days we have already been hit with. I think it is the 14.whatever% Bad enough, but not nearly one third of their income. Honestly, they look at me like I am retarded not to get it while I wonder how it is that THEY are in higher positions.
Somebody is flunking basic math. So, friends, what do you say? Am I missing something here? Or should I consider trying for advanced positions?
