Public Safety Pay Inequities

Monday, May 14, 2018

Public safety staff in Virginia Beach have been asking the city to fix pay disparities for over a decade. The city responded last week by allocating $3.2 million in their budget to adjust the pay of more than 6,000 employees next year. City Council votes on the budget Tuesday, May 15. Vice Mayor Jim Wood and Deputy City Manager Steve Cover will join us to discuss fixing compensation issues which will ultimately cost $38 million. We'll also talk to a firefighter who said he first contacted the city about the issue 17 years ago. Join us by calling 440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240.
