    Vacavilles state is as follows; the people of vacaville are racist. The police arent much different. Its the molester capital of california. Its scorching summer weather is miserable. The outlets are a joke. Its the copy cat game with the retail and restaraunt business in fairfield. As you can tell im a life long resident of fairfield ca, and been fed up for years with that hot heap of cow dung town!

    What is the state of the working-level City employees? We're talking about the City employees who actually do the work... not the pointy-headed potentates. The City cut the workers' pay by about 10 percent last October... at the same time other local governments were restoring the pay of their employees. This pay cut is for two years! Really Vacaville... two years?! Haven't the working employees already given up enough from 2008 to 2013? I guess not! The City management is working to crush the employees and their bargaining groups. Never let a good crisis go to waste; right City leaders? Crush the working City employees now, cut them back to part-time status, pay them minimum wage... this will certainly firm up your fat retirement checks when you retire at 55. The state of Vacaville government is sick, sick, sick. That's got to have an effect on the rest of the city.

    Good point. That's probably the biggest difference in labor relations between government and the private sector: In government there tends to be far less separation between management and workers in terms of compensation. Maintaining that should be the mission of any governing board. The private sector has proven unable to govern the problem for the simple reason that boards of directors are NOT citizens but rather other managers like the ones they are expected to govern.
