RE: Re:Firefighters pay raise

Regardless of how they are portrayed, teachers DO NOT have a hard job.  I know because I was one, and I sat in meeting about how (we) deserved more money, work too hard, etc. 

Fact is, I never worked a Saturday or Sunday, went to work at 7 and was free to leave by 4.   Oh, and did I mention the WHOLE SUMMER I was OFF.  All for $47,580.  I left because of parents, definitely not because of the job.

I agree with "Wife of a Firefighter" and I also believe that the firefighters and police officers should be the highest paid (besides teachers) in any city. What can we call the City Council for? Nothing...None of them help us in dangerous situations. All they do is sit behind a desk and doodle figures that they want as raises. They charge lunches, gas, and whatever else they feel is job related to the Beaumont citizens (free for all charge account paid by US). But want to deny the men and women that risk their own lives for complete strangers. I can't say what I really want to about the CITY (managers), except @a!*>#%@.

Wife of a Firefighter!


Being the wife of a firefighter is a harder job than most would think. There are a lot of things people dont know unless you are in our position.  There are nights that are spent alone wondering if the love of your life is going to come home safe or are you going to get that horrifying call that all wives and loved ones dread.  There are holidays that are missed with their families and loved ones so they can be at work to make sure your holidays are spent safely.  When they are home there are sleepless nights from the nightmares that they have from being on the job and seeing things that I wouldn't wish upon anyone, even my worst enemy.  They do this job because they love what they do it isnt just something to pass the time till retirement.  They deserve this raise because they do the opposite of what most people do when danger approaches them, they run into and fight it, instead of run away.  During Hurricane Rita they had to stay and work in the meantime trying to get there families to a safe place and worry if they were going to be ok.  These are just some points that I wanted to make known to people who aren't in our shoes, but looking in from the outside.
