Law Protects Firemen’s Vacations
Firemen of Redlands, Cal., are going to have vacations this year and with pay, despite the condition of the city’s finances. Recently the City Council cut the firemen’s salaries and decided that if the firemen take vacations, they should get no pay for the time they are absent. Chief Perrin Trowbridge reminded the City Council of the state law which provides that every fireman may have a vacation without loss of wages. The Council rescinded its action.
