PBA PRESIDENT ON RAISES FOR MAYOR'S STAFF

 

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“According to Mayor de Blasio’s own spokesperson, for the City of New York to ‘retain skilled staff, we need to offer competitive wages...’ We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. If Mayor de Blasio truly believes these words, he should work on closing the competitive pay gap for New York City police officers, who protect our streets every day while making 30% less than police officers elsewhere. Otherwise, he’s nothing more than a hypocrite.”
