It's only a matter of time. City employees are paid very low wages, usually are way understaffed and overworked, and the benefits aren't guaranteed as well anymore. The benefits are the only thing keeping workers and even those are eroding, why would anybody capable stick around? The mayor is going to have to give in somewhat otherwise functions will simply grind to a halt which will affect his reelect-ability.

I think he also needs to understand that city workers vote. And most of them are fucking pissed. Most cops don't even live here so he can't just rely on them.
