You must have gotten hold of some of that new recreational marijuana. Their wages and benefits are no where near that amount. Granted, they make a good living but they're union employees and paid by a contract. My guess is they make about $25 an hour which is somewhere near fifty grand for full time work.
IF they get a pension, they pay into it and the city pays a small amount.
As for the Christmas decorations, maybe we shouldn't decorate. Bah Humbug. Oh yeah and let's not forget that they honor our vets by hanging the memorial banners. You want to stop that too?
