    Chicago police union want 12% pay raise over 2 years and $3,000 a year for being forced to live in the city

    Chicago Police officers are demanding a 12 percent pay raise over two years, a reduction in health-care contributions and a $3,000-a-year residency stipend to compensate them for being forced to live and send their kids to school in the city.The Fraternal Order of Police also wants to cut in half — from 20 percent to 10 percent — the share of promotions based on merit and change the name from “merit” — which, they claim, makes a political process sound apolitical — to “management” or “administrative” promotions.

    Wow, wish I had a raise that large. Or any raise for that matter. Haven't had a COLA since I came on this department, only the step raises.

    I wonder if they're actually set on those numbers, or if it's a kind of "shoot high so the counter offer is still nice" type of thing.
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.
