That's right! I love getting paid $1,000 bucks a day. Good job SB Sun...tell all the pyros out there! I can't wait. I have a great job and get paid soooo much money, I don't know what to do with it on my 20 days off per month. Too bad you weren't as smart as me to get into the fire service...you desk jockey!

3.And state and local spending? There’s a perception these are also out of control. It’s a myth. According to the latest data from the Census, state and local governments over the past 12 months have come to just under 9% of GDP. That’s normal by the standards of recent history. Robert Ward, deputy director of the Rockefeller Institute, says state and local spending has typically been around 9% of GDP for the past three decades. If you go back to the 1970s it was often higher, at around 10%. But the big rise occurred in the 1960s. Back in the early 1960s it was only around 7%.

My home was saved in both of the mentioned firefighters. We saw them sleeping on the ground at the staging areas so they could get back to work quickly without going home. We brought them food, blankets and pillows. They are not overpaid. They are heroes.
