'Not serving the public'

20 August 2010, 13:35  - Despondent
Dear Editor,

What on earth is happening to our country? I wrote the article Work for what you want a while ago very sad about what's happening with the older generation in our country.

Right now, I am at my wits end with these so-called "Public Servants". How are they being any form of servant to the public when they are setting things alight at hospitals and disrupting school lessons?

I am distraught when I think that the people that are causing so much havoc are the very people that play such an integral role in keeping this country working. Who do you think you are to bring the country to a stand-still because you are unhappy with the pay you get? You should be thankful you have a damn job.

I think the problem with our country can be summarised completely by this strike. If you are unhappy, you disrupt everything. If you want to create a better standard of living for you and your family, work, and get a flippin' promotion you lazy moron!

I'm a youngster and in my mind, that is how the world works. What turns my blood to black is that these striking people are causing the sick and frail to suffer because of a paycheque. I say fire the whole damn lot of them.There are so many people that are willing to work for less than these public servants are getting paid anyway.

Our dearest president should really show that he has some form of dignity, backbone and integrity and pull finger to sort these folks out. Make a stand, get the army involved, bloody hell do something. Don't let those who are committed to this country suffer because other people are unhappy with a pay increase.

How many of us expect an increase of more than 4 or 5% anyway? It is disheartening and I'm sure there are many more people that are 'gatvol' of government just sitting back with their exorbitant salaries and letting these strikers be.

Today is a very very sad day in the history of our country and we don't need people like this around.
