Listen up, idiot! Do a search for a licensed plant operator, NATION WIDE, see what the salary is. One of the reasons Fredonia hasn't been able to find a permanent replacement is that they pay crap money compared to other places. You people crack me up, you have no clue how much people make doing certain jobs and NOT JUST IN NEW YORK STATE!!!

wow you kidding me 40 bucks a hour ? does his job include - to represent fredonia as a lawyer also ? and maybe a doctor to the fredonia employees ? wow / thats why fredonia has been going down hill and i mean down hill / i lived here for 15 years - and believe me - its time to go / ive talked to alot of people and they are relocating to dunkirk where the taxes are much cheaper and seems to me dunkirk looks better down the road - look - artificial football field - new pool - new gymnasium - and much more - what has fredonia done ? nothing in years - they are stuck in reverse and will never go into forward - its my opinion

Actually, they are getting off cheap with the no benefits thing, but he's only going to be there twice a month? Good god! 1200$ a week to not even have to show up for work! That is absolutely nuts!

You people are clueless as to what things actually cost. There is no way I would get all of those certs and take all of the responsibility to make sure that plant is run right for any less than forty an hour.you can't have some moron with a high school diploma and no education for 15 bucks an hour in charge of a place like. I can't believe you morons are happy with 10 or 15 bucks an hour!! You must not have a pot to piss in!!!

It's a small price to pay too make sure everyone has safe drinking water.You people are unbeleivable. Do you expect someone to run a filtration plant for peanuts. It's a huge responsibility and alot of training.Another thing,if something goes wrong it's his arsss.SO TYPICAL, pure jealousy!!!

You don't get it. The ones who want everyone working for 10 bucks an hour are all doing fine. They just don't want anyone else doing as fine. They want services but want to pay Mexican illegal level wages. Then they'll be happy.
