The city of Flint Michigan, hometown to dickhead Michael Moore, has paid out $857,663 in wages over a 3 year period for some of its workers to stay home in standby mode……You know….. In case there was any actual work to do.
Thanks to local unions bargaining language into the worker’s contracts.
“For compensation, the employee on such duty shall receive at his regular straight time rate of pay one (1) hour pay for each calendar day, Monday through Friday and two (2) hours pay for each calendar Saturday, Sunday, and/or holiday of such duty.”
Flint Police Officers Association contract language
