Now, I’m not against people making a few extra bucks, but let’s not kid ourselves about the motive behind this.
Anyhoo, we had a story about the increases RIGHT SMACK HERE.
I talked to incoming clerk Mike Hammond this morning (we also quoted him last night) and he said that he has spoken with the Law Department, and that the employees – 70 of them – who received raises will continue to get them until he takes office on Sept. 2.
At that point, he’s rolling them back.
“I don’t mind being the bad guy,” he said.
Hammond added that all the employees also will have to reapply for their jobs “at a certain salary rate,” although he expects that most people will keep their jobs.
