Sounds like there are no actual pay cuts - just smaller increases than had been expected in the past?

If so, that's certainly no hardship compared to the private sector, where people have lost jobs, seen their pay frozen, or have the actual pay cut. And few in the private sector have ANY pension or retirement health benefits.

We should pay city employees a fair wage - but they should not be treated better than the average American.
