Thank goodness not everyone takes that attitude, or we wouldn't have teachers, firefighters or law enforcement officers.Starting pay is almost $700 a week! And they are whining about not getting enough money. Check around and see what the average starting pay is for the greater majority of Florida's citizenry. Not to mention the type of job they have is driving a car with no speed limits to comply with, no physical labor to mention other an the occasional foot race. Then to think OPD starts out at a whopping $800 a week! Cry me a river! All we hear about is our underpayed law enforcement officers. Doesn't sound to me that they are doing too shabby! Most of these veteran cops with 10 years plus are making in excess of 55-60 grand a year.
For too long Florida has tried to do law enforcement on the cheap. The result, crime that is out of control. Talk about low pay. A beginning State Attorney starts at just over 39,000/yr.
