    The School Committee told them last winter that they weren’t going to be able to meet the property-tax caps imposed by the state without severe pain.”

    So the School Committee’s said they couldn’t operate without a budget increase that went beyond the maximum outlined by state law?

    A couple of weeks back, I put up a post about how corporations are pulling this sort of stuff: firing people, then hiring replacements (usually offshore in my scenario) at some much lower salary.  I was called all sorts of things like scaremonger, or union shill, or things too tedious to recall. And yet, here we are with a concrete example.

    Corporations have been doing this, too. Various services in my company have been outsourced to third parties who hire back many of the people at a lower wage. Thanks for all your hard work! Your reward is a pay cut! That’s your incentive!

    But this all comes back to taxes. We keep hearing that, oh, we have to cut. No, we don’t. We can tax the upper end of the salary scale like we did in the Clinton years, which was still lower than the tax levels of the Reagan years. Do this at the fed and state level and a lot of these problems go away.
