Duly Quoted: Rob Ford

“The last thing we want to do is lay off…but when [labour] makes up 80 per cent of your budget, there’s a lot of gravy there, there’s a lot of people. Unfortunately, it’s just not enough work to go around.”
—Rob Ford, speaking with AM640′s John Oakley this morning, about the imbalance he perceives in the City’s budget when compared with the standards set by business. He went on to suggest that the City should spend no more than 20 per cent of its budget on labour costs, or one-quarter of what it spends currently.
