Fraser Health Authority Hypocrisy
The recent cuts announced by the Fraser Health Authority are disturbing, but not as much as some of the salaries for administrators and other bigshots connected with this outfit, which range from $200,000 to $400,000 and even more when pension and other benefits are factored in. I don't recall seeing any news about these people offering to take a salary cut. If they collectively reduced their salaries by $25,000, for example (the amount being cut from Cythera Transition House Society, which provides group and individual counselling for victims of violence and adult survivors of sexual abuse), would they not be able to feed their families or live in the manner they are accustomed? If they could not, and the salaries were reduced accordingly, is there no one in the entire world who would be willing to work for this lesser amount?
