    I voted yes of course, but I should point out that nobody doubts that they deserve a raise. The question, I think, was whether we could afford to give it to them.

    From my perspective, we can’t afford not to. But the better question might be, “should the BOS give them a raise?”

    Isn’t the impact on the county beneath negligible? We pay 18 cents on the dollar of an IHSS worker – Federally subsidized program, right? And if one were to say, the country can’t afford it – that’s just dumb because we all know (don’t we?) that it’s much cheaper to help people stay in their homes than to pay to keep someone in a care facility. A ‘no brainer’ – if the Board of supes can’t see this – well, they’re useless! Surprise………………
