You run a government that depends on tax payers for support. You're running out of tax payers because businesses are closing or moving away, laying-off consumers who then must further depend on your government. The only real source of tax revenue is from the remaining consumers who have discretionary income above housing, food, transportation, insurance, energy, clothing, and taxes.
Those consumers that remain, who have the extra discretionary income that provides the necessary tax revenue for the survival of your government, are the highly paid government employees who are receiving systematic cost-of-living raises every year, while the private sector employees receive no such raise or are laid-off, and are consequently dragging your government down due to social program needs.
Who is at fault?
You are, for allowing the activities of indifferent anti-social and predatory business practices that have plundered the community you govern.
Now lay-off all of your union workers and start hiring non-union members, because you will never get the tax revenue you need to sustain such an expensive opulent workforce.
Or sue the businesses that laid off your tax-payers, and sue the businesses that refused to raise the wages of your tax-payers so that you could sustain your government.
