Williamsport Sun-Gazette

This concerns the contract reached by the city Streets and Parks Department's Union of Williamsport, with a 2 percent raise each year for the next 4 years. Once again, we retired seniors who must help foot the bill for city expenses, are caught up in the jaws of a closing vice. Our social security checks amount to the income of a job that pays $5.00 an hour. We received a 1.5 percent raise, which would be $200.00 a week we receive, plus a raise of $3.00 per week.
