(For the record, the 65 reading is misleading. It was much colder in the building than that.)
Is the city trying to save some money? Hardly. The problem is the building’s heat was on the fritz on the day after a snowstorm.
Did the city send out some technicians to fix the problem? No, because the shiftless, lazy union techs don’t work on weekends. So my entire squad sat at their desks wearing their jackets and, in some cases, gloves all day.
Personally, I think this photo perfectly encapsulates the city’s attitude toward its employees.
