Obviously, the DA has extra money in his budget to cover this nonsense. So cut the budget!

Doesn't the County's HR Department have the responsibility of determining the job description, and compensation levels, for all County employeesincluding the attorneys working for the County?
Sowhat "additional duties, experience and responsibilities" is DA Rosen talking about, that the HR Department would seem to be unaware?
Most of these County Attorneys are very well compensated. When their pensions are folded in to their total compensation package, they will be seeing roughly two dollars in retirement for every dollar they made when they were on the job. Why isn't DA Rosen showing any understanding of the total compensation that these employees are eventually paid?
Given that the DA's office is not very transparent, to begin withit's very difficult to understand what the public is getting for its money. Let's hope that the public is offered a better choice for DA than a replay of this fellow's questionable track record come the next election.

So they got a 5% pay cut, BFD!!! In 2001, my husband got a 30% pay cut, and gave his eloyees a 10% cut--and they were happy it was ONLY 10%. Eventually, their full pay was restored, but not until 2003.
In 2008, I was laid off and my husband took another 30% cut--but this time he had to lay off five people and cut the others' pay 10% again. The employees got their pay restored, one got her job restored, but my husband has not yet, after five years, restored his own pay....
So, these people in the DA's office, who largely make upwards of 200K/year, should not whine so much about 5% in pay cuts, especially since their boss coensated them on other ways. They should just man up like other people do in this roller coaster called Silicon Valley.
