7 Boss to Employee  Boss to Employee:  I know I promised to give you a Cost of Living raise every year – but I can’t afford it. I’ll give you 77 cents on the dollar for now but I’ll make it up to you later. Trust me.

8 Boss to Employee  Boss to Employee: Oh, and I don’t have enough cash to pay you for all twelve months, but I’m good for it. So, I’ll only be paying you through February. You’ll get the rest of it in July or August, okay?

9 Boss to Employee  And did I mention that I don’t expect to get some of my big contracts until late in the year – so I’m going to have to give you December, January and February’s checks in June. But hey, at least it’s still this year, right?

10 And that is the easy part  And this is just the money with no strings attached.  Add to this over 40 programs with unique funding restrictions.
