Low pay drives Florida Highway Patrol troopers to the exi...

I agree with you on the issue of low salaries for other jobs in the state; salaries in every field are lower than those for comparable jobs in other states. And the cost of living keeps going up; most everyone is feeling the pinch. This needs to change. Police officers and state troopers, though, face an element of risk every day which most of the rest of us do not. They never know whether the next person they pull over could wield a gun and end their lives in a second. That element of risk justifies that they be paid decent salaries.  (Aug 28, 2007 | post #9)
