I am not for implementing the new wage scale proposed by the Unions but fire fighters have every right to protest and block roads. These men have been working and risking their lives for years
for a miserable $200 monthly nothing in return. I don’t think it’s too much if they turn them into full employees and finance a much needed restructuring of the Civil Defense units and branches.
Civil Defense volunteers are not government employees who take bribes and do nothing all day. They volunteered to save lives and should not treated that way. If a salary increase is not feasible, they should be at least equipped with the proper tools to do their job.
