Growth of taxes, salaries irk Esquimalt reader

Use of tax money to pay for ever-larger administrative costs bothersome

There was a time a few years ago when taxes were reasonable and homeowners knew the tax money was mostly going for upkeep of roads etc.

Now taxes are like charities. So much of the donation goes to administration that people are getting turned off donating.

The same is true with taxes: too many administrators, directors, making way too much money at our expense.

The workers who need the raises most have to keep settling for zero or two per cent, while the people making $150,000 and over $200,000 a year keep getting raises. This is ridiculous.

Those salaries should be cut. I am sure there are many qualified people who would take these jobs even at lower pay.
