In this week’s episode, MC and HM discuss Selma, Alabama, and their issues with pay. Two days in a row, officers called in “sick” (what is referred to as the “Blue Flu”) to show solidarity and unity with regard to their abysmal pay.
The guys talk about solutions (some of which are likely to be unpopular) and what those officers may want to do to improve their financial well-being. It won’t be easy when they’re paid $12.90 an hour. No, that is not a typo. Twelve Ninety. Below is the link to the article referenced on PoliceOne.com.
To our friends in Alabama: Keep the faith, fight the good fight, and remember why you took the job to begin with…because it sure as shit wasn’t the pay.
And speaking of pay!
