Sorry about the long title, but I couldn’t think of any other way to put it. I am going to do my best (and most likely fail) to keep out of this presidential race. Normally I get so stressed about them it drives me into an election year hysteria. Interesting, however to note what NYPD’s Sergeants and Captains did here.
If you really want to see what cops think, check out the president of their rank and file union in this video:
You probably recall that “America’s Mayor” was presiding when 9-11 hit. What you might not know is that New York cops work for poverty wages, under the worst benefits and pay plan of any big city cop in America. Period. That might come as a surprise, since they are so famous. Giuliani stopped their pay for 3.5 years. No raises at all, when they already are making next to nothing! Are you kidding?
Check out the salaries of America’s large police forces. These are starting numbers, as of today:
Los Angeles: $54,475
And Giuliani’s heroes in blue?
New York: $32,600
Barely above poverty wages. Disgusting and unacceptable. I hope he is ashamed of himself.
