Widening the gap between rich and poor

Giving Management a 14% wage increase is widening the gap between rich and poor.  A municipality who has money to spend above and beyond the cost of municipal responsibility could put the excess funds to better use to improve the lives of pensioners, the sick, crime fighting, nature conservation, animal welfare, the lowest paid workers, the unemployed, education, or the homeless in the community.   The idea is to aim to provide a better life for all, instead of lining the pockets of decision makers.
