Work weak

September 12, 2008

Public safety officers have to be “asked” to do what the rest of us have always had to do:

CROWN POINT | Lake County Sheriff Rogelio “Roy” Dominguez is using the current budget crisis to renew his call for hundreds of county police and corrections officers to go to a 40-hour work week.

Labor contract negotiations recently began with approximately 150 county police officers and 160 corrections officers, many of whom work four days and then have two days off. It creates an extra 17 off days a year, forcing the county to pay overtime to some officers to fill the gaps.

Heck of a world.
