It's sad this happens - but lets remember that LOTS of people in the private sector have lost jobs or had paycuts.

The city needs to focus on keeping costs low - especially for basics like janitorial - so we can afford more police protection, better library support, etc.

If a private company can get willing employees to work for lower wages and benefits, and do a good job, then we should continue that so Mountain View can better support the police and library
