As for Mr. Stoffa 's quote of the salaries - it is very misleading . He would like you to believe everyone at Gracedale makes that kind of money and that is far from the truth. The salaries he mentioned were supervisors and administration , that is a far cry from the wages of the people that work one on one with the residents everyday. That is like comparing apples to oranges.
Their salaries are nothing compared to the upper echelon.
I would like to see Mr. stoffa , angle, Mr. Cusick do the job the aides and NA 2'S do every day , or just follow then around for 8 hours and see what it is like and then tell me that they are making too much money.
Over the years the workers chose to take the lower pay and the better benefit's and County approved that.
Tell me who determines the wages of supervisors, career service, administration ???
It is not the union --they don't belong.
It is the County Executive,and the County Council that approved it all these years so don't blame it on anyone else but your self's. County pays big money for people to sit behind their desk's or walk the halls, and pays little for the ones that do the work that counts.
And any overtime is do to you hiring freeze. Mr. stoffa let the people know what the ordinary worker earns it would make more sense.
