Mayor of PA Cut Pay of City Workers to Minimum Wage
Posted July 11th, 2012 @ 7:01am

The mayor of Scranton, Pennsylvania recently cut the pay of about 400 city workers down to minimum wage, because of a budget crisis.

Now he's facing a federal class-action lawsuit from the police and fire departments.

His name is Christopher Doherty, and he made the decision after the Scranton City Council rejected his recommendation to raise taxes.

They directed him instead to borrow money, and he refused to do it.

He cut his own pay as well.

Wow does this suck for those city workers!!!
