Tuesday, April 17, 2007 | To the firefighters carrying the sign, “Firefighters are not responsible for the city’s financial woes,” a service job with the potential to make over $100,000 with overtime, full health benefits, possibility to retire making more than your highest yearly salary, and I don’t even know how much annual and sick leave you can accrue.

This I do know.

Your union leader signed a great contract with our fiscally irresponsible civic leaders some time ago for many obvious reasons the readers of this blog understand.

I am a staunch union supporter and civil servant … and sorry, but firefighters (among others) are responsible for America’s Fiscal Pity.
