Are Montgomery City Employees Receiving a Pay Raise?
The Montgomery City Council will take another two weeks to discuss whether it'll make changes to the mayor's proposed budget for next year. Some members want to take out city employee's proposed pay raises.
Some city council members say in this tough economy, Montgomery should be saving its money.
But city employees say not getting a raise would not only hurt them, but their families.
Thousands are employed by the city of Montgomery. Thousands relying on a pay check. Money to feed their families.
In Mayor Todd Strange's budget plan: every employee, who meets the requirements, will see about a 2.5 percent raise. He's hoping the extra money makes up for the pricier health care.
