While we're excited to see the city council pushing for city contractors to pay their employees a living wage, ramping up to $15/hr in the next 2 years, we still have firefighters making $11.64 an hour while putting their lives and health in jeopardy every day for the citizens of New Orleans.

I don't think this city will ever pay first responders what they are worth. To me, they are straight up, HEROES!!!

Unfortunately this is the sad reality that first responders face on the daily. Doesn’t matter where your from, and then city council and mayors around the country want to ask the question of “Why is your turnover so high?” Or “why have you not filled that open position yet?” Truth is people aren’t kicking the doors down to be a first responder and live in poverty anymore!!

This is horrible. I didn't know it was that low.

Barrett Hebert I had no clue the pay was 💩! Thank you for sacrificing your life and safety for others! #weneedtopaythemmore #wtfmoments #theyrisktheirownlivesforoursafety #DemandMore

Well all those festivals are coming up soon they need fire watches and overtime to man the department if they don't show us a sign of good fait (14 day work week) by then we need to be talking about some work action I'm just saying.

It happens because it’s allowed to happen. That wage happens because employees accept that wage.

I am a union firefighter. I have attended every Jazzfest from 1992-2019. I continue to be appalled by administration after administration that treat New Orleans firefighters like dirt. I wish we could start a national movement of people like me that spend a ton of money in NOLA and wish to express our dissatisfaction with the treatment of those that are protecting me when I visit. I’d like to see where all those “city taxes” on my hotel bill end up.

I encourage all nola firefighters to seek employment elsewhere. NOPD also. Defund EVERYTHING.

Wow, first time I’d ever say “move North” I was making $22 hr part time on a Paid on Premise dept. of course you would be able to afford a home on that , so it’s all relevant

Come to Philly. $65k in the academy, and a pay raise to 70k at graduation with 6 man trucks. Plus it’s cheaper to live in Philly, with all brand new equipment.

$11.62 an hour ?!?!?!?!?!?!

That ain’t right!

Do as I say, not as I do. Perfect Latoya.
