Jobs lost

November 12, 2009


To the editor:

Every month, when I pay my Lawrence Memorial Hospital bill (city-owned hospital), the return envelope has the payment going to Kansas City.

Then, almost daily, there is talk in the local paper about the lack of local jobs.

Guess we can’t open envelopes and deposit checks here in Lawrence. Another high-tech job lost to Kansas City, Mo.

It's kind of like people who work for the City or the Hospital (or even run it) for that matter, that live outside of Lawrence or even Douglas County. Why not make living in the City of Lawrence if you work for the City of Lawrence a requirement? Would that be too intrusive to ask? It's only fair since they are making their nickel off of our nickels.

A "high-tech" job has been outsourced? Are you serious, Mr. Sack? Opening an envelope and applying a payment in a simple computer program is a "high-tech" job that's just marched out of Lawrence?

You should be happy it's not addressed to Dubai or India and that KC is all the farther the payment is going.
