Like anybody, they repair the pipes when the cost of the leakage exceeds
the cost of repairage. Unfortunately, the accounting rules imposed on
municipalities by the provinces, the false perspectives foisted by
sensationalist press and covetous politicians, the lies published by
fake "citizen" organizations, and businesses hoping to rip-off windfall
profits, all conspire to make repairs expensive indeed.
In a worker-hating economy, it is too easy to focus on a few people
hustling from house to house with handheld computers, to isolate them
from the enterprise, and to pretend they are abnormally expensive and
the most significant cost.

However, you pay it all back many times over, to hire more paramilitary
and their toyboxes full of hitech "less lethal" torture devices.
With your kids' addictions to various chemicals and behaviours.
With the despoilation of public spaces and closure in the name of security.
With the ever decreasing safety of your women and children, not only on
the streets, but also in their homes and schools. And with the
increasing futility of their time spent there.
And with the increased likelihood that, when they come for your job,
nobody will be left to say anything except, overpaid computer freak.
Those "expensive unionized manual" labourers don't follow their lost
jobs to Malaysia. They stay right here. Hungry.
They remember what you say.
