GRASSroots group to hold second meeting

GRASSroots group to hold second meeting
"The group, also known as GRASS, plans to focus the meeting on three specific areas of interest: city employees' health insurance benefits package, city employee wages and wage increases, and the city's pension system, representatives told 24 Hour News 8.

The health insurance benefits package is too expensive, GRASS alleges, and wages for city employees have surpassed comparable jobs in the private sector.
Group representatives also claim the city's pension system is not sustainable."

85% of the disposable spending of most cities is on employee/retiree compensation.

It's about time some group investigated where our public dollars are going.

You go GRASS!
