Friday, April 24, 2009|It is way past the bedtime of the firefighters union to just shut up and go away! It does not matter if their fire department is in San Diego or Chula Vista; FEAR is the weapon of this bunch of self-serving men and women. If you think that you are so valuable, go to another city, and when you leave, be assured that there will be about 50 to 75 applicants for your job even in they’re entry-level pay scale!
I think that the janitors and trash collectors deserve just as much as you do, but then they are more down to earth. I am an independent businessman and what I do determines my pay; not trying to intimidate the public, especially older citizens who are trying to live on way less than what firemen get.
