Mr.Meister, if the residents of Hamilton want to lift people from poverty, we could pay city officials bonuses for doing just that. For example, we could base part of their pay package on how quickly the bottom 10% or earners in the city grew their real wages. Therefore, as the poor increased their income, so would the politicians. By focusing on real opportunities for people, rather than handouts, the poor would stand to gain much more from a pay for performance system than they currently enjoy from our elected officials.

What do you think about that?
