I love your comment.
Good thought jerrygarza, but the problem with the part-time employees seeking higher education is that, with Geannie Morrison's deregulation of college tuition, it is going to be even harder for that part-timer to afford a higher education.
But perhaps you could suggest at the next meeting of Geanie Morrison's 'OOPS! Did I do that?' Crossroads Commission on Education that they figure out a way for part-time workers to afford college.
exresident, No one owes me nothing, no one owes you nothing. the city council and county commissioners owe the taxpayers of victoria, if nothing more, the chance to save taxpayers dollars by cutting the number of full time employees not only in the library but throughtout the city. the article was on the library and the last couple of articles were on the library cutting staff and hours. i was merely emphasizing the fact that two part time employees could do the exact same job as one full time employee without the cost of insurance and benefits. and if two part time employees could replace one full time employee imagine 10 part time employees and the savings to the taxpayers of victoria county. as for filling the positions with part time employees that drug test i'm sure the texas workforce center would like to comment on that. do not use personal references in judging others, because i'm positive victoria county residents have enough drug free residents to fill part time employment even without benefits. what about the high schools? victoria college? uhv? i think you underestimate the residents of victoria county. and i noticed you left out the second part of my first comment that those employees who would be replaced would be encouraged to get higher education. thank you for reading my post and commenting.
I think they are adorable! I believe it will give kids an exciting interest to see sculptures of children holding books! Then they will be at the library and it would make it that much easier to go check out a book! Great idea, to me! If a child doesn't learn how to read at a young age, they may never learn how to as an adult....
I can't believe that the friends of the library would spend that much money on a statue. If the Friends and City Council would consider keeping the Professionals at the library full time and making all other workers part time (oara professionals) they would find that thousands and thousands of dollars would be saved from benefits alone. I'm talking about the people who check out books, shelve books. In this economy people would love to have a partime job, not only would it save the taxpayers millions of dollars over time in benefits,retirement. It would add to the money that could go towards education for the children of Victoria. This would make the para professionals want to better themselves and go to school to become professionals. The Friends should've offerred a scholarship to someone who wrote the best essay or something like that, to help better the library. The City council instead of cutting hours should hire two part time people to cover one full time person. Imagine the savings on insurance, benefits, retirement and anything else the city offers. This would be a motivation for people to get higher education.
