Detroit Firemen Against Raise

Detroit Firemen Against Raise

Detroit firemen plan to ask the Board of Fire Commissioners to rescind the action in granting them a five per cent pay raise, and to ask that the money be used in alleviating the poverty and unemployment in the city. The pay raise would have meant an increase of $215,900 in the pay roll each year, and the firemen believed that this money could be used for better purposes.

Under the present salary scale the chief receives $7,500, deputy chiefs $4,500, battalion chiefs $4,008. captains $3,180. lieutenants $2,880, and pipe men and ladder men $2,420.
