WTF! I think we’re hostages of the WPD.
A thought. If we – like if we have a real chance – we could cut the ranks of officers, get two patrolmen for the price of one of them lazy sacks of shit. Alright lets move on this.
Who’s with me on this?
Hey, where are all the hands?
Oh, typical F-ing Wusta.
100K times 125 = $12,500,000
There’s your budget problem right there. I rounded down, to make it easy. Just think this number gets bigger every year. Thanks Mr City mis-Manager
Thanks for your great writing ICT !
Imagine police officers making this kind of money! Primary care medical doctors who have gone to school and trained for many more years do not make this money until they have a well-established practice, and far greater responsibilities at that. Maybe this is one of the reasons why there are fewer and fewer American-born doctors in this country. Why work that hard when a high school diploma and 6 months at the academy will do?! And on top of that, then you can afford to move out of Worcester.
The biggest thieves in this city are the police. It is humanly impossible to earn this kind of money unless you are double dipping, sleeping in the dugout during pay details or coaching a baseball team while on duty. How do you make $20,000 a year more than the previous year? The Quinn Bill should be eliminated. Its orignal purpose was to have a better educated police officer on the streets. Today, all police officers are educated with college degrees. The competition of becoming a police officer is very competitive. If you have an associates degree you receive 15% added to you base pay, 20% added for a bachelors degree and 25% for having a masters degree. Not to mention that many of these courses are taught by police officers. The good old boy network at its best. I have a masters degree and would love to receive 25% more pay added to my base pay for having this degree. However, I’ll never see that kind of incentive in my line of professional work.
Instead of being so frustrated with how much they have earned, the Questions should be: (1) How do officers make this kind of money? (2) Also, take note – not all officers are making this kind of salary, or the earned salaries of all would be listed. (3) What overtime tracking systems are in place to see that the opportunities are fair for all to make this kind of salary? Is overtime distributed throughout the department equally? it is quite obvious by this list (No) because if it was, you would see a more even keel of officer salaries.
A) We need to ID the home location of every one of these guys; I am ready to do the research. Not to publish by name, but to show that they aren’t all in Worcester.
b) Two overweight politicians in Worcester proudly boasted to me how they have the police unions vote; I was disgusted!
c) I am ready to stand out on Lincoln Square with some real pigs to show my disdain for the greed of the police union. Will it piss people off? Sure. Will it make a point? You betcha. Will it make the Boston news? Very likely (as a well known Alaskan might say – I gotta gift for political theater).
d) We need to get our City Council to force police people to live in Worcester. Why should our tax money be going to Holden?
e) Be careful of politicians who say $120-150K is what other “comparable” cities pay. I don’t care. I don’t live in those cities. We are getting ripped off as citizens of Worcester!
I agree with Hugie. I would like to know how many people take these high salaries out of Worcester. I have been told it is illegal to require people to live where they work. This really ticks me off. I believe, if you live where you work, there is a sense of commitment to our community.
