BREAKING: Detroit city staff including Police and Fire will receive a 10% pay cut effective August 6th!
DETROIT (WJBK) –
“We die. The city lies. No police. No peace,” said Scott Pellerito from the Detroit Police Officers Association.
Despite the repeated cries and even a drawn up “eviction notice”, the state appointed Financial Advisory Board took residence for an hour and a half meeting on Wayne State’s campus and moving ahead with decisions about how to clean up the city’s financial mess. The board’s powers and decisions that stood before the suspension of Public Act 4 still stand, and so ten percent wage cuts for all city workers start this Wednesday.
“We’re moving forward with the project manager. We’re moving forward with all the initiatives, imposing the contracts on the unions, and we’re trying to save money,” said Detroit Mayor Pro-temGary Brown.
