Would You Return Your Payraise?

A Georgia county school district is having trouble balancing their budget. Projections put them $1.8 million short. One possible solution? Cancel the 2.5% pay raise scheduled to take affect the second half of the school year. This change would save $2 million.

An article from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution provides details, and nothing is definite yet. It looks like the option will be posed to county employees, and the vote must be unanimous to take back the raise. Wow, unanimous. I'm curious how that's all gonna turn out.
