You will be seeing more of this
cutting the wages of many of their city workers, including police and fire fighters, to minimum wage because the town has run out of money. Naturally the unions are gearing up for a fight, and I can honestly say I feel a little bad for them. Making minumum wage sucks, especially when you do a job thats worth more than that. But its a testament to how bad things have gotten when a mayor is willing to go against city employees and risk being held in contempt of a court order by drastically cutting wages. Expect to see more of this in the future.
