Why are government costs and taxes out of control in Western New York? Look right in your back yard and see how the village of Fredonia approved rehiring a clerk at a rate of $20.38 per hour.
Clerk work, part-time, at $20.38 per hour. And, not only will the worker collect that rate per hour, but she also will be collecting a pension on top of whatever work she does for the village.
Sound like a bargain?
Sure, for the worker, especially when area residents continue to shell out some of the most money in the nation when it comes to paying taxes.
