And its not going to stop. Massive reductions in all areas should be expected as we witness the collapse of the US economy. Countless news articles detail the looming global currency war which will make matters exponentially worse in the US. As reported in this story, fire stations will be closed at night and everyone knows how fires NEVER start when its dark out.
Here’s an excerpt from the article that enumerates the massive reductions:
The mayor’s plan includes eliminating 6,166 teaching positions, 350 civilian positions at the NYPD, 51 correction officer jobs, 200 Sanitation Department supervisor posts, 59 call taker positions at the 311 call center, and many more, according the news release.
The plan would also close 20 fire companies overnight, reduce the work year from 12 months to 9 months for more than 1,400 Parks Department workers, eliminate funding for mental retardation and developmental disability clinical programs, and close public libraries an addition day a week.
The Department of Transportation would also lay off for one week 641 street maintenance and arterial resurfacing employees, which means 9,000 fewer potholes would be filled, according to the mayor’s office.
Now imagine what things will look like when the purchasing value of the dollar plummets as a consequence of “quantitative easing”, and the aforementioned, looming, global currency war. No more fire departments. No more police officers responding to your call for help. No more value to our money.
