Ms. Benita Ransom, can you explain something? According to your Buzz report, (the title alone speaks volumes) "Employees scheduled to work the holiday (but take the day off), will not get paid for holiday. Example: Employee regularly works four 10-hour days, one day is on the actual holiday, but worked 30 hours instead of 40."
So lets say an officer is lucky enough to take the day off (holiday, vacation), or becomes ill and takes a sick day. According to you, that officer only works 30 hours, so they will not be paid. Meaning, their check will be short 10 hours.
Continuing along the same line, are you are saying the entire command staff and their aides are only going to be paid 30 hours? Because you know as well as we do, there is no way in hell the command staff will work a holiday. So, they will only work 30 hours?
There you have it guys and girls. It may not effect all, but it's going to effect some. So while you are enjoying your day at the park or in the backyard with your family, mentally thanking your C.O. for letting you take the day off, remember, it's gonna cost you a days pay.
Of course none of this applies to the commissioners because hey, they get paid regardless.
