Bill to Change Hours of N. Y. Firemen
The Board of Aldermen, New York City, passed a bill to provide a nine-hour day for city firemen with one day off a week. It must now pass the Board of Estimate before it reaches the Mayor, who indicated that he was not enthusiastic for the change. Should the bill become a law, five hundred men would be added to the department at an increased cost of $1,000,000 a year. The bill calls for the measure to become effective on and after January 1, 1935.
