LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Give seniors a raise too

Every year raises are given out, but it seems to miss the retirees who need it. The cost of living keeps going up and we have to try to live on the same income for years.

I assume the people doing the budget will never need their retirement to live on. If they did, they would be increasing it so that they would have a decent retirement. Every year retirees talk to the governor and our representatives, to no avail.

What do we need to do get a raise like everyone else? We’re not asking for a lot, just a little piece of the pie. We’re hungry too.
