Phil Palios is a temp at Microsoft. He makes good money, but like so many other temps, he wishes he had a full-time job. Recently Phil's temp agency sent out a note saying that all Microsoft temps would have to accept a ten percent pay cut. Phil then surprised himself. He decided to organize a public protest. Also in this episode, Beverly Kennedy decided she wanted a career in law enforcement. The trouble was, this was the early 70's in Boston, and cops weren't hiring women to walk a beat.
