Should county workers get furlough pay, raises?


County and school employees were told this year to take several furlough days to help balance the budget. Employees already had been denied salary increases because of the fiscal woes.

However, recently the commissioners and school board reversed their decision, canceling any remaining furlough days and refunding the money lost for those already taken. However, it's doubtful at this point that they will receive pay raises.

Do you agree with the original furlough policy? Once the furlough policy was implemented, should the commissioners and school board have canceled them? Do you believe employees should receive pay raises? Why or why not? Please explain.
