    "Worcester officials congratulated 32 recruits who completed the police academy on Wednesday, then promptly laid all of them off to help close a budget gap of roughly $23 million."

    Two of the recruits were siblings. They expected to start work on Monday.

    I'm thinkin' they could have said something *before* the graduation ceremony.

    It's just wrong when public safety is compromised by financial shortfalls.

    What scares me too are the layoffs in fire departments

    Wonder how much the city officials make compared to what they pay the fire/police department?

    there are other ways to trim budgets without sacrificing safety
