    Dear Hetty, welcome to the average person’s world who pays the taxes for public workers saleries, pensions and healthcare!!! We have been in the “unsustainable”, “devistating” world that you speak of for four years now as we hare had to take our losses and also pay the increases for public workers who will not even come to the aid of their own let alone feel our pain.
