More than half of the city of Lansing's employees "say no" to living where they work

As the city of Lansing, Michigan's State Capital, struggles with its future as a desirable place to live, more than half of the City Hall employees, including police and fire have chosen to live outside the city, according to today's story in the Lansing State Journal. 

What does this mean?  They get their paychecks from a city where they don't want to live.

Mayor Virg Bernero keeps telling residents that they live in a "world class city."  Do his employees at city hall know that?  Do they believe it?  Why?
