Fiorintini is a moron who attempts illegal moves all of the time. Why does he keep getting elected?

Couldn't get on the job either?

If you are just hiring to fill the job with a female just hire a female dog.
She is a female, can sleep in the firehouse all day, just like the other fireman. Won't call in sick, won't go out on a fake disability, and won't ask for more money to come to work sober.
Wow

You bunch of babies! They aren't told that they can go to another company! There is a list of laid off FF in the state and communities will hire from it before going to new lists. The FF can turn down the job if they want but the community wouldn't have to pay to train a new recruit if they take it. It actually saves money and employs the unemployed. I'm sorry they aren't offering FF positions to guys laid off from some private sector union that has no affiliation with the IAFF. That would be like hiring a laid-off Firefighter to drive a tractor trailer even though they don't have a CDL just because both positions are union. Does that make sense to you?

I was in a union in the private sector.
Nobody said to us that we could just go to another union company.
That only happens in the public sector

Women are not a minority category for civil service. African american, hispanic, american indian, that's about it. As for vets they deserve preference, at least they did something to earn it. Go to your local recruiter if you want a preference.

Civil service hires minorities (Women included) over majority. War vets get first pick.
