Amend the Charter to limit public employees
Amend San Francisco's Charter to limit the number of public employees to one for each thirty San Franciscans; median compensation (including benefits) to be no more than 110% of median private employee's compensation. Now public employees rake in something like 80% of what San Francisco spends (about $6.5 billion each year; over $8000 per resident). And that doesn't include future benefits. Public employees make way more than do private employees, and they enjoy much better benes, more job security, better working conditions, and easier work. (Sex change operation? Mais oui!) Politicians will never take on public employees; it is political suicide to do so; so citizens must.
