This Is News?


Hartford hired private investigators to follow around city employees to see if they were doing any work, and guess what? They weren't. The Hartford Courant led with this shocking discovery on the front page, apparently useless municipal employees seem novel to the editors of the Courant. Or maybe they thought the expense of the private investigator was the interesting part of the story. What the story doesn't say is why these people still have a job.

They still have a job because inactive municpal employees cause far less damage than active ones.

...And if they're like the state employees in Iowa, the union is strong within them, Luke.
