He submitted to over- w h e l m i n g opposition on the matter of cutting expense accounts, which everyone else agreed already were no match for high prices. "Then we must raise revenues," he said, remembering that with credit cards and car payments and music lessons and orthodontist bills he couldn't conlinue to pay all the family's shorl-lerm debt. That brought up the question of how. Three possibilities were discussed: Mother goes to 1 work, the kids take p a r t - l i m e jobs, father asks for ;i raise. Father maintained the latter was out of the question because his company was on a s i m i l a r expense-cutting campaign and had frozen salaries. Mother agreed she could return to work, but in order to do so she'd have lo have a woman come in to do the housework and she'd need another car for transportation, The prospect of these added expenses, plus the facl that added income would push them into a higher l/ix category, dis- ·ouragcd further consideration if the idea. And the kids'.' Well. they really should be studying iind playing games. , .lust one a l t e r n a t i v e was left and little of it at that: .Cut some more. If produclon and revenues couldn't be raised, then there was only one answer lo ri.sini! cosls. and lhat was l» pare expenses right to the hart bone, where it hurts.
