More Detail on Fire Fighter Pay, Who is getting the additional $2.7 mil of SALARY ONLY?

The question remains, where is over 50% of the Goodyear Fire Department spend going to if it is not going to fire fighters’ pay?

First I’ll detail pay.

Based upon city data through May, 2010, SALARY ONLY for the year will be about $7.7 mil.

Remember, if EVERYONE in the department made the $44,930 that Fishbach says is the median fire fighter salary that would amount to about $5.0 mil in salary.

So there are $2.7 mil in pure salary above and beyond the median fire fighter pay.  That is 50% MORE than the fire fighters will be paid in 2009 -10.

On an average basis, SALARY ONLY, the Goodyear Fire Dept is paying nearly $68,000 per person and only paying their fire fighters a median pay of $44,900.
