Great Analogy…I’m stealing it!!

On GreenBayPressGazette.com you will find the following column: ‘Madison Math’: Make sure a cut is a cut written by State Representative Karl Van Roy (R – Hudson.)

The following analogy is great and I for one am going to use it everyday!

If you ask your boss for a $3 an hour raise and he agrees to give you $1, is it fair to tell your friends and relatives your boss just stuck it to you and gave you a $2 an hour pay cut?

He finishes the though by adding:

Telling people you were cut something that you never had in the first place is the scam of “Madison Math.” It’s not just misleading; it’s dishonest. (emphasis added by gopfolk)
