She was lamenting to me that due to budget cuts, Don was going to cut her hours, and she would have to start taking the highway department calls from home.
Sounds to me like Don is having his wife work for us for free, now, sometimes. I know she's been taking the calls from home while she's been sick, too.
And, there are and have been other community services where her time and efforts have been volunteered without compensation. She's good people.
