Re: Mayor cuts cop, firefighter pay to minimum wage
Here in Nashville, only the city EMT and cops are paid; outside the city the county fie stations are all volunteer. The young man in the article is getting $600.00 eery two weeks? about what I bring home every 2 two weeks. He probably still has insurance whereas I do not. The insurance we have comes from my hubby's job which is a school bus driver. He only brings home $600.00 a month.
Regardless, we are thankful that we have jobs because, as stated above, there are people out there with no jobs.
Should the economy improve, I suspect the Mayor would reinstate their former wages.
You know what would be really, really nice to see? The president follow this mayor's lead, and reduce his own, and Congress' pay to minimum wage. Perhaps if they had to live like we do for awhile, they'd appreciate what they're putting us through!
