The numbers in this vid are correct for my area. According to the local paper the average employee in the FD receives [note: never use the word "makes" when describing public employees] over $125K in pay + benefits [note: does not include retirement + retirement health care].
That pay includes the 5 FD accountants receiving an average of $60K, clerks, etc. Clearly, the "average" fireman receives much more than $125K in my district.
The local politicians allowed the looting of the system in order to receive the FD endorsement for election. And the public was too busy working and raising kids to pay attention. Now the FD are overcompensated, the politicians are elected and the public is broke. Time for a Tea Party!
