Unfortunately I believe that most of the FPD and the FFD blame the citizens! Constantly out here they are blaming the economically poor citizens!Who do you blame? The city or the citizens?
The firefighters once were on the peoples side! Now they are above!! Let me be honest, if there were not so many poor people in Fitchburg then the FFD nbor the FPD would be paid as much as they are paid!! The state and the federal government gives the city of Fitchburg money because of its economic problems! The city turns around and pays the Chief $150,000 with full benefits for his entire family! Both Chief of police and fire!
Then the Captains are paid just below $150,000 plus full benefits!! These are the ones who complain about those citizens on food stamps! As I mentioned their salaries contain food stamp money!!
Those Firefighters who are VERY WELL PAID are the ones complaining. It is us citizens who have supported them!! Now they want to turn on us as the economy is down and out?? They want to bitch? All do respect the job is not very tirering! Yes they fight fires and yes they save lives but it is time for them to return the support and stop bitching!!
I am tired of hearing them bitch about food stamps and welfare!! Enough already! You have GREAT benefits! Since 911 you have the respect of the world from low interest rates and other low cost of living! How about feeling fortunate that you have a well paid job with great benefits for your entire family and JOB SECURITY which is non existing for the rest of us!
And what is up with all the stickers? It is becomming like nazi germany!! Enough already!! It is getting so bad that I seen a fake sticker! These stickers are meant to recieve breaks well everyone else is made to follow the law! After a while they don't see them as breaks as they want them and expect them as entitlments!!
I haven't seen such generalization of people due to finances and economic class. They put homeless people down; they put certain races down. It is so bad that their kids are reflecting their negative beliefs.
