Time lost in line

Re “DMV eliminates Saturday hours,” Aug. 8

There are some things one cannot do online. By eliminating Saturday hours, the state makes members of the public take time off from work during the week to fight the good fight at the DMV.

Firing government workers might save a small percentage of the yearly budget, but at what price? The fired workers and those who have to take time off from work to go to the DMV lose out on much-needed income.

On the other hand, at least fired workers have the time to spend their days waiting in line at the DMV.
